I’m a three meal-a-day kind of girl, plus snacks in between. So I definitely start my day with breakfast. Before I started cutting carbs I ate plenty of cereal for breakfast or oatmeal in the winter. And I absolutely love french toast. I’ve even been know to eat pop tarts. Are you noticing a trend…i.e, lots of sugar. Breakfast was a tough one for me because I was not a big egg eater. I kind of made myself eat them most mornings by adding bacon bits and cheese and many mornings now I actually prefer eggs. However, I do still have a sweet tooth so I knew I had to come up with some good substitutes. When I spotted a low-carb french toast recipe you could make in the microwave, I was in heaven. It fit all of my boxes.

I was in love. The recipe is below and I first spotted it on Sugar Free Like Me. You do have to use your imagination because it most certainly is not like Cracker Barrel’s french toast, but it does have a good flavor.
I use Maple Grove Farms Low Calorie Sugar Free Syrup on mine and love it. Not all stores carry that syrup so you may have to shop around as I did to find it. By the way, I mentioned Cracker Barrel because I do love their french toast and on the occasion that I still splurge and have it, I will ask for their sugar free syrup which is very good and saves a bundle of carbs.
