- 1/4 tsp, xanthan or guar gum
- 2/3 C almond flour
- 1 1/2 T coconut flour

- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- Dash of cinnamon (if you like)2 oz. cream cheese
- 2 eggs
- 2 T – 1/4 C unsweetened almond, coconut, cashew or hemp milk
- 1/4 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 3-4 drops stevia extract
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
An excellent “faux” recipe that does a fantastic job of satisfying my deep and abiding need for French Toast on occasion is this one, which I found years ago on Three Fat Chicks on a Diet:
4 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup riccotta cheese
1 packet of splenda
sugar free maple syrup
Mix all together in a bowl and beat with a fork
pour into pan like you would as if you were making pancakes
top with butter spray and syrup and ENJOY!!!
With my low(er)-carb life style (most days), I’ve increased the amount of fat I willingly and happily take in each day. So, in making this recipe today, versus when I found it seven or eight years ago, I might follow the original, or I might just use 3 whole eggs; I’m also using Stevia or erythtitol or Swerve for my sweetener, not Splenda. Additionally, I’ve found that if I don’t have ricotta on hand, cottage cheese will work okay. Coconut oil is probably what’s in my frying pan, to, not “butter spray” or any other cooking spray. Like I said, I don’t much worry about fats these days. I am still using my sugar-free syrups though!
