French toast sticks are the perfect quick breakfast, and one of the best ways to enjoy French toast in my opinion.
I mean, they are the perfect shape for dipping and their size makes them easy to adjust your portion for either a quick snack or a full-on feast!
These French toast are a riff on the ever-popular keto egg loaf. But, they are so tasty that I feel confident that even those who aren’t eating a keto or low carb diet will still enjoy them.
Ingredients and substitutions:
- Cream Cheese – You can use reduced-fat cream cheese or vegan cream cheese if you are avoiding dairy.
- Almond flour or coconut flour
- Sweetener – any granular sweetener that you like will work, if you aren’t eating a low carb diet, you can even use regular white sugar. I use Lakanto monk fruit blend and it works really well and has a great flavor with no aftertaste!
Tips for making the best homemade French toast sticks:
Be sure to thoroughly grease your baking pan. I use Pam cooking spray liberally for this recipe. If you are having a hard time with the French toast sticking to the pan, you can also line the bottom with parchment.
Since the French toast sticks are coated in sweetener and then commonly dipped in syrup, I didn’t want to add much sweetener to the blended batter. If you don’t plan to use syrup, or you don’t want to coat them in the cinnamon/sweetener mixture, then you may wish to add more sweetener to the batter.
If you are having a hard time getting the cinnamon/sweetener mixture to stick to the french toast sticks, you can lightly brush them with melted butter before rolling them in the mixture.
Once the french toast sticks are finished baking, allow them to cool then freeze them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once they have frozen solid, you can transfer them to a freezer-safe container for up to 6 months.
To cook them after freezing, heat them in the oven or air fryer at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until they are heated through.
You can also microwave them for 2-3 minutes, however, the texture will change slightly using this method.

Low Carb French Toast Sticks

- Remove from the oven (leave the oven on) and allow the french toast to cool slightly. Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Once the french toast has cooled enough to handle, slice it into 24 ‘sticks’
- Combine the remaining 1 tsp of cinnamon and the remaining ¾ cup o sweetener in a shallow dish. One by one, roll the french toast sticks in the cinnamon mixture and place on the baking sheet.
- When all of the French toast sticks are coated in the cinnamon return them to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
