French Toast Sticks – Gluten Free, Low Carb, Keto, Grain Free

This is another one of those “easy to make” breakfasts that you can make the morning of or ahead of time and freeze! The recipe is for a single batch. You can easily double, triple, quadruple… whatever, the recipe and make lots!

What You Need

3 tbs almond flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

1 1/2 tbs butter (melted)

1/2 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp Pyure Stevia

 

What To Do

Mix together all the ingredients in a well greased microwave safe dish. A square or rectangle dish works best for this. If you feel like being fancy… hold the cinnamon, then sprinkle it on top and swirl it in.  Microwave for 90 seconds. From this point it is up to you how you want to cut them when you remove them from the container. I cut them into sticks. If you have a toaster that is a great option to crisp them up. I used a cast iron pan to crisp mine up a little. I would do this step before freezing any that you plan to save for later. Serve alone or with a little sugar free syrup for dipping.

Breakfast ideas for the keto kid, parent or family on the go!

Okay! Let’s talk breakfast! In our house we have two young boys with never-ending appetites! So… they seem to want breakfast every single morning – keto has not changed that in them. My husband and I stopped wanting breakfast every morning a long time ago. We usually tend to fast through breakfast. While I have been pregnant I have been a little more hungry than usual in the morning, but nothing a couple sausage links or cup of BPC won’t fix… I still don’t want a full plate of bacon and eggs or anything else like that. If you or your household is anything like mine, making a full, hot breakfast for the kids every single morning is just not ideal. So, browse this post and find all the recipes I have blogged or linked up. I keep  batches of multiple options in the freezer at all times so that I can just heat up what the boys ask for in the morning. If your kids are older, they can even heat theirs up themselves in the morning. Just because all that easy, processed junk is out of our houses, that does not mean  convenience has to be completely out the window… you just have to do a little prep once in awhile!

Keto Waffles! I love these because the recipe makes a ton, they freeze easily, reheat easily and are simply a staple in our house – we almost ALWAYS have them in the freezer.

Chocolate Chip Mini Pancakes! This is another one that freezes well! This one is great to heat and run with, you can toss them in a paper towel or bag and eat them on the go!

French Toast Sticks! These came to me after remembering how something my oldest loved back in the non-keto days from a fast food chain. So easy for a quick, easy breakfast! Also perfect from the freezer!

Keto Pancake Sandwiches! If you ever loved drive-thru breakfast sandwiches, these are awesome. I keep all the separate pieces frozen in bags then pull out whats needed for one when they are requested and just heat it up and assemble. If hubby is hungry in the morning this is a great one to put in a piece of foil after heated and toss on top of his lunch box for him to grab on the way out the door. 

 

Bacon and Eggs… I mean this is an old standard. We buy the 3lbs of thick sliced bacon from costco, cut each pack in 1/2 (so we get 4 days of bacon per 3lbs) and bake. I place the bacon on a well greased, foil lined baking sheet and bake at 425 until desired doneness. For our eggs, I only scramble… just beat the eggs and add in some heavy whipping cream – cook on medium until fluffy. This seems like something you can’t do ahead, but leave it to me to figure that one out too. Buy THESE awesome meal prep containers – undercook your bacon and eggs. Portion some of both into the containers and freeze – remove the bacon when you heat up the eggs – the bacon only needs about 30 seconds in the microwave to unfreeze.

Another good one that I blogged as a snack, but is GREAT for running out the door are “granola” bars. These are quick and easy and take ZERO effort to prep.

These are some great ideas to really get you started! I will come back and add more as I cook / bake and photograph them!

Keto Waffles – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free

I love that keto waffles exist! I am not a fan of making a fresh cooked batch every single morning that they are requested however… so I make a ton and they freeze and reheat GREAT!

What You Need

8 eggs

8 oz cream cheese (softened)

1/2 cup butter (melted)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup Pyure Stevia

1 cup almond flour

3/4 cup coconut flour

1 tbsp baking powder

Water (as needed)

 

Makes 10 large waffles or 40 waffle pieces (my kids only eat 1 or 2 or a day so this recipe is awesome for us!).

How it’s made!

In a mixer or a blender, (I LOVE our blender and use it for a better mix on these),  add all ingredients except the water. Blend or mix until smooth.  You want the batter to be a little bit runny, if it is too thick, add in a little water and mix until smooth. Pour a small amount of batter into the waffle iron (you don’t want to put too much or it’ll overflow, about 1/2 a cup of batter should do). Keto waffles can always use to cook about twice as long as it takes for that little green “finished” light to turn on. When you are finished let them cool, cut them and then you can put all the extras in a large plastic bag and freeze! These freeze and re-heat perfect! This recipe makes 10 whole waffles for me!
