Today in one of my favorite facebook groups a member posted the recipe for Keto friendly bread that had about 1 net carb per slice. They had tried the recipe and it looked amazing so I had to try it out. Today was the perfect day because K only had a half day at school and with her sisters being a bit under the weather they have been very good just resting and watching their new favorite show Umizoomi…. yeah so fun!
When I took the newly baked bread out of the oven I realized that with this addition to my Keto recipes a whole new world was opening up to me for meals and menus. As I sliced the beautiful loaf I immediately knew that what I really wanted to do with it was make French Toast.
Even before eating Keto this wasn’t a meal we made frequently but every time I would make it I would wonder why we didn’t make it more. As I looked at the fresh bread on the counter I wasn’t sure if it would live up to my usual French Toast hype but I knew I was going to give it a try.
The first thing I did was grab some blueberries to make a quick compote to go on top and then I whipped up some healthy whipped cream. After everything was made I assembled it and waited for my most critical judges tried my new dish. All three girls loved it and so did I!
Here is how I made it all:
For the bread:
**this is not my recipe! It was shared in a facebook group I’m a part of!**
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup butter (I melted mine)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Preheat oven to 355 F. Put eggs in brown and beat for 1-2 minutes one high.
Add remaining ingredients and beat until completely mixed.
Scrape into a 9×6 loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 45 minutes or until skewer comes out of middle clean.
I got 14 slices with mine because I sliced a bit thicker for my French Toast and because of that a serving (2 slices) was 2 net carbs.
For the Blueberry Compote I took 1 cup of frozen blueberries and 1/4 of a cup of my confectioners Swerve. I added a tsp of vanilla extract and heated it on the stove until it was bubbly and thicker, then I set it off to the side.
For my whipped cream I took 1 cup of heavy cream, 2 tbsp of my swerve and a dash of vanilla and beat it until stiff peaks formed.
I made a simple French Toast (eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and heavy cream) and made the French toast. For the entire dish I had 6 net carbs! I am so excited about this dish and I know that it might not be one I make all the time but it will definitely be made again!
Hope you guys enjoy and if you try it out leave me a comment below and let me know how you like it!
