  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon, grounded
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 slices 80-85% low carb bread, e.g 80% Alpine low carb plain bread
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup, sugar-free; e.g. Lakanto
  • berries, fresh; (optional)


  • In a shallow dish or bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined. Set aside.
  • Preheat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Grease the pan with 1 tbsp of the butter for frying.
  • Dip one slice of low carb bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides evenly. Allow any excess mixture to drip off.
  • Place the coated bread slice into the preheated frying pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Turn carefully using a spatula.
  • Once cooked, transfer the French toast to a plate. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining slices of bread until all are cooked.
  • Divide the toast between two plates and serve warm, drizzled with sugar-free syrup or topped with fresh berries, or sprinkled with extra cinnamon if desired.


To make this FODMAP friendly swap to a keto gluten free bread.
This dish makes for a great dessert - try serving with fresh berries and a dollop of thick cream.
