This fluffy low carb French toast has just 3.5 net carbs and it will keep you full and craving-free until lunch. It’s quick and easy to make in your microwave, too.
Let’s be honest, a lot of times the hardest thing about a low-carb lifestyle is that breakfast is boring, especially if you have a lifetime of eating cereal, donuts, and muffins behind you. By the time induction is over I am usually sick of eggs that have been boiled, poached, fried, scrambled, coddled, omletted, and dumped raw into my protein shake. If that’s you too then you are going to love this low carb French toast breakfast dish.
To make this easy low carb breakfast you’ll need: eggs, cream cheese, baking powder, hemp seed, xylitol or other sugar-free sweetener of choice, cinnamon, whole nutmeg, a microwave safe custard cup or bowl, and a microwave.

My struggle is a little more complex than being tired of eggs — I am not a breakfast eater. I know I should, and I know it’s better for me but in my head breakfast equals weight gain. That’s left over from my anorexic days, I know. So, in order to eat breakfast I have to tempt myself with something really good — and too my really good means something on the order of croissants or pastry.
Sadly, I have yet to perfect the low-carb croissant but I am getting better with pastry type things. This low carb French toast is based on the classic Atkins French toast recipe for induction in the original book. I like it with a few pecans and some of my cake batter granola sprinkled on top for crunch but you could use 0-carb syrup or jam, too.
It’s important to eat these as soon as they come out of the microwave. If you wait too long they will collapse and that lovely, fluffy, French toast texture will be gone. Also the French toast will be as thick as the container you cook it in. I cooked mine in a shallow pasta bowl and then cut the circles out with a large biscuit cutter so that they would be pretty.
