The magnificent keto egg loaf recipe! This recipe has blown up all over Instagram & rightly so. It’s super simple & incredibly delicious.
The best way to eat this is having it fried in some butter on the stove top, after it’s finished in the oven. Perfect keto french toast, in my opinion.
There are variations of this recipe and I tried my very best to find them all. I have them shown below the recipe card.
Samatha, keto.sam.iam, on Instagram first made this recipe and shared it on her Instagram account. Since then, it’s become a hit. She, however, did not come up with the recipe itself exactly. She just changed how the ingredients were cooked.
What I mean by this is that she took the cream cheese pancake recipe that’s been online for a while and placed it into a bread pan and cooked it this way instead of making pancakes. BRILLIANT!
Edited on 9/25/18: I recently learned that this original recipe did not originally come from All Day I Dream About Food. I just remembered that Sam mentioned that she found it on her site. Go check out her site though, she’s got some great treats on there.
The Basic Egg Loaf / Soggy French Toast Recipe
The described recipe below is just the basic version of this egg loaf. I used 4 tablespoons of butter, while others use 8 tablespoons.
Some do no use sweetener, some use sweetener. I really enjoyed using liquid monk fruit sweetener in mine.
The monk fruit drops currently have vanilla, chocolate, lemon and regular for their flavors. One of the best things about these liquid drops is that they give you zero carbs, unlike erythritol. Add a little bit at a time and test the sweetness as you go for your own personal liking.
A.D. Keto has allowed me to place his video on here to help you all out. He makes this egg loaf recipe on his YouTube channel.
Variations From Instagram
Mama Keto Cooks Real Food
She used the original recipe but then added 6 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and some cinnamon.
To cook this one though is slightly different. She cooked it for 45 minutes on the same heat setting.
She sadly no longer has an Instagram account.
Rebecca started adding 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder for each serving. For example, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon butter and 1 ounce of cream cheese and 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder. By doing this, the loaf does not deflate as much.
She also likes adding vanilla extract to her creations. One creation was a banana walnut loaf. She added in 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, 1/8 tsp banana extract, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/4 C walnuts.
Ketoculinarystuff (Keto Culinary Stuff)
He made this really good looking mocha flavor. He made the original recipe but then added 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/4 cup dark roast coffee, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
More Flavor Combinations
By using other extracts, this treat can take on other favorite flavors. Some extra flavor ideas: strawberry, raspberry, cherry, coffee, mint, caramel, rum, coconut, and pistachio.
Once the loaf is finished cooking in the oven, slice the loaf and fry up the slices in butter! Or heck, try using coconut oil. Fried french toast? Yes, please!
Then get some keto syrup and cover that french toast. People have enjoyed the syrups from Lakanto and ChocZero. Oh, you can’t forget about the whipped cream either. Get creative and add different flavors to that whipped cream too!
Add-in Ideas to Try
- Cocoa Powder
- shredded Unsweetened Coconut
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Nuts such as Pili Nuts
- Banana Extract, which is what I used in my Banana Bread recipe.
Other Breakfast Ideas
With the increasing popularity of the ketogenic diet, many people are seeking low-carb alternatives to their favorite dishes. One such dish is French Toast, which can easily become overly carb-heavy. Fortunately, there is an easy, three-ingredient keto-friendly solution – Keto Egg Loaf.
Keto Egg Loaf is a delicious and nutritious replacement for bread-based French Toast. It is made with just three ingredients – eggs, coconut milk, and a low-carb sweetener such as Stevia or Xylitol. The eggs are combined with coconut milk to provide the necessary moisture and sweetness, while the low-carb sweetener makes them sweet and tasty. Once mixed together, the batter can be poured into a greased loaf pan, baked in a preheated oven for about 45 minutes, then cut into slices and toasted.
The Keto Egg Loaf provides a low-carb, healthy alternative to French Toast. It is high in protein, as well as healthy fats, which can help sustain energy and support muscle building. It is also gluten-free and dairy-free, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitivities. Another great benefit is that it takes very little time to prepare – simply mix, bake, and you have an easy breakfast item ready in no time!
To make Keto Egg Loaf French Toast, simply dip slices of the toasted bread in a mixture of beaten eggs, a few tablespoons of coconut milk, and a sprinkle of your favorite low-carb sweetener. Brown the slices either in a buttered skillet or in the oven until they are golden-brown on both sides, and top with sugar-free syrup or whipped cream. You can also experiment with adding flavors to the egg mixture, such as cinnamon and nutmeg.
Keto Egg Loaf is a fantastic choice for anyone looking for a delicious and easy keto-friendly breakfast. It is low in carbs, high in healthy fats and protein, gluten-free, and takes minimal time to prepare. Plus, it makes for a tasty and guilt-free French Toast alternative – perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a snack. What more could you ask for?
