Easy Low Carb Toast
NO eggs needed for this awesome Keto Toast! If you're in need of a quick keto toast that you can enjoy for breakfast or lunch or a snack, that's nut free, egg free, paleo and AIP compliant than look no further, this recipe was made for you!
This idea was inspired by one of my other recipes, Low Carb Avocado Toast but it uses almond flour. Many of you know my youngest has a tree nut and peanut allergy so he was pretty sad he couldn't enjoy that toast with smoked salmon which he loves. My other recent dilemma that also inspired this recipe, was what I shared on Instagram regarding having to go on the AIP diet (autoimmune protocol diet) for some symptoms that were too uncomfortable and just not going away. Then I received myEpstein Bar diagnosis and shortly after that I found out I was hypothyroid which explains a lot!
What is the AIP Diet?
AIP diet is an autoimmune protocol diet which eliminates many foods I was eating on a daily basis like, coffee, nuts, seeds, eggs, dairy, nightshade vegetables, and even chocolate! It was sad and I was depressed for a bit. Now I'm currently in my 4th week and will start reintroducing one thing at a time to see how my body reacts. I'm also going to get a food allergy test done and I'm seeing an endocrinologist who is exceptional and doing more tests. For now I am feeling better but the symptoms haven't disappeared, though they have diminished.
I was getting pretty sick and tired of not being able to eat my Favorite Coconut Flour bread because it contains eggs and was really sick and tired of having just protein for breakfast. The only good thing that came out of this was I was able to make a fantastic dairy free fat bomb, my Blackberry Fat Bombs and that helped ease my pain a bit.
Since I can't have chia seeds or flaxseeds, the typical option for a vegan egg, I knew I had to get creative here. I researched and found you can make an egg replacement with beef gelatin powder! It's great if the recipe only needs 1-3 eggs. I did in fact try replacing the 6 eggs in my Keto Coconut Flour Bread and it didn't work, so don't try that. But for a simple toast like in this recipe, it worked fabulously and in fact it made these nice and crisp!
I was even surprised myself at how delicious this toast is. These could even be considered a cracker if you cut them into smaller pieces. But however you use this recipe, it's quick keto toast that will satisfy! If you don't have an egg allergy simply replace the gelatin and water used for 2 eggs.
