French Toast Egg Puff

French Toast Egg Puff. A delicious low carb breakfast!


I may be french toast's biggest fan, but it's been years since I've eaten the "bread" version. However, this "French Toast Egg Puff" (at least that's that what I call it) is an amazing alternative and sometimes I eat it several times a week! The basic recipe is just 3 ingredients and the result is a thick, puffy, sweet, and very similar in taste to "real" french toast! 


Ingredients
2 Eggs
2 Oz. cream cheese
Sugar free syrup and/or 1 teaspoon of artificial sugar (I use Stevia)

Directions

Step 1: Soften cream cheese in a microwave for about 20 seconds, then add two eggs and a tablespoon of sugar free syrup (and also a packet or teaspoon of artificial sugar if you'd like).

Eggs, Cream Cheese, Tablespoon of Sugar Free Syrup, and 1 Packet of Artificial Sugar (Stevia)
Stir until blended, but it will be lumpy at this point with chunks of cream cheese. 


Step 2: Return to microwave for 45 seconds then stir again. You'll notice that the egg has started to harden, but just break it up and stir until blended and creamy. 

Step 3: Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes. If still soft in the middle, flip over with a spatula and return to microwave for another 20 seconds or so. The end result should look something like this, maybe a bit different if you use a bigger bowl. 




Step 4: Flip the egg puff out of the bowl onto a plate and top with sugar free syrup.

You can also make a sweet and creamy spread using cream cheese, sugar free syrup, and heavy cream. No measurements, just however much of each for the amount and thickness you'd like.  Just soften some cream cheese in the microwave, add a bit of heavy cream. From there you can choose to add some artificial sugar, or other flavored sugar free syrups to your liking. I used Torani sugar free vanilla syrup and a packet of Stevia. Blend it all together for a super yummy topping! I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon as well.

  3. Looks yummy!! Also...Stevia is a natural sweetener...not artificial (comes from a green plant)...which makes this recipe incredibly healthy!!! :)

    1. Stevia also doesn't affect your blood sugar level as artificial sweeteners do.

    1. I don't see why you couldn't. Microwaving it just cooks it faster.

    2. I made mine in the frying pan ...it spreads out so is thinner ...you could put it in a round cookie cutter to keep it from spreading

  10. Thank you so much, this was so delicious, filling and satisfying! It did taste like french toast, and I didnt miss the *toast* part of it at all. I had the old mentality of bacon, eggs, fatty foods as low carb, but quickly bored of it. After a few days, and although I was feeling great, I totally blew it. Your site has inspired and changed my attitude and mentality, making it easy to go back to this lifestyle, get my health in order, and off blood pressure medication. Thank you so much for sharing your story, and recipes!!!! It is truly appreciated, and I can't wait to try more of your recipes :)

  11. My husband is a diabetic and I *try* to follow his low carb diet, this recipe is great for when I NEED something sweet. When the cream cheese/heavy cream is used it reminds me of cheesecake..and that is always a WIN. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  12. This is good! I was shocked as I thought it might be a bit nasty but really good. Hurrah and thank goodness for DaVinci syrup! Thanks for posting this.

  13. Every Sat and Sun morning I have coffee with my mom and sister. Both have never had a weight issue. I unfortunately take after my dad's side of the family and balloon up as soon as I eat carbs. Every time we get together they have some cookies or cake or donuts with their coffee and I just watch them feeling sorry for myself. But today I made myself this french toast egg puff and it was so delicious and satisfying. Tastes exactly like french toast! I couldn't believe it!

  14. This is a game changer! I would spend so long trying to whip up my egg whites to give IBIH Cream Cheese Pancakes some fluff. This recipe is so quick and easy- and only ONE bowl! So glad you shared! Thanks

  24. Could you make this with just egg whites to decrease the fat and cholesterol found in egg yolks? Or would that completely change it?

  25. Oh my gosh! This was so great. Too easy, I had to try it. I used fat free reddi whip for topping, dusted with cinnamon and garshined with blackberries. So good! I'll bet this would also be good as a savory egg puff without the stevia...adding cheddar cheese and pico de gallo for garnish. Thank you!!!

  28. I just tried it this morning. Not being an 'egg' person i.e. I don't really like eggs I thought I may have found an ideal breakfast. To me it wasn't bad but still a bit eggy tasting for my liking. I will make again on the weekend & try adding the extra tsp of artificial sugar and the white cream topping with a sprinkle of cinnamon and see if I like it better. I'll let you know. :)

  32. Do you have nutritional information for this recipe?

  33. I tried this last night and was not disappointed. I did change it up a bit to add 2 tsp of an erythritol, xylitol and stevia extract blend that I found here: http://joyfilledeats.com/sweetener/ This tastes just like sugar and also 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and it was very good. I warmed some Walden Farms maple syrup, added a pat of butter and had a great, very low carb dinner that really filled me up. Thanks so much!

  38. I would like this a lot better if you had a printer-ready copy I could save. But, no, that isn't what bloggers do. Thanks for the exercise in cut and paste.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
