Low Carb French Toast Bowl | THM-S
Growing up, my favorite breakfast was French toast. I topped mine with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar instead of syrup.
My second favorite breakfast was Betty Crocker’s French Breakfast Puff muffins. You dipped the tops in melted butter and then into cinnamon sugar.
Do you sense a theme here? Clearly, I had a thing for butter with cinnamon and sugar. ?

If you like your French toast with a hint of nutmeg and maple, some buttery goodness, and delicious cinnamon “sugar” then this keto-friendly recipe is for you.
It’s ready to eat in just 7 minutes. I like it so much that I’ve measured out the dry ingredients for one serving into zipper bags. It’s my own little low carb French toast mix. Just add the wet ingredients and BAM! French toast. In a bowl. In less than 5 minutes. Simple!

What is Oat FIBER??
Oat fiber is different from oat flour.
Oat flour is made by grinding/milling whole oats and is wonderful in THM-E recipes. It’s a slow-burning, healthy carb source.
Oat fiber is made by grinding up the non-digestible oat hull. It’s essentially pure fiber. It has no nutritional value aside from the fact that it is pure fiber which can help to keep you regular. ?
When you use oat fiber, the carbs are from pure, non-digestible fiber so they aren’t included in the carb count. It’s perfect to use in a low carb setting for THM-S or keto recipes.
Oat fiber is THIRSTY. So it soaks up a lot more liquid than some other flours (almond or coconut). That means you need more liquid or else your baked product will be DRY. Like sawdust…
A complete explanation of all the different types of oat products can be found here.
I used oat fiber in this recipe because it helps to keep the calorie count lower than if I’d used almond flour and/or coconut flour. Also, I liked the texture that Briana Thomas’ recipe had, it was just the flavor that needed tweaking to taste like the French toast I prefer.
How to make low carb French Toast:
One of the things I like about French toast is the texture is a little wet.
To get that same texture, add 2-3 more Tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk over top.
A little goes on top but I let most of it run down the edges of the bowl.
I love the Pyure low carb maple syrup with this French toast. You can swap the syrup for the extra almond milk!
And breakfast is served!
This recipe only has 8 grams of protein which is less than I typically eat for a full meal.
You could add a side of bacon or sausage or eggs to increase the protein for your meal.
Another option is to add a scoop of collagen to your coffee. You can find collagen other places but I love the Trim Healthy Mama brand because it’s so economical and it doesn’t have any weird taste.
I hope you like this low carb French Toast as much as I do!
