This Quick Keto Toast is Low Carb, Paleo, Egg Free, Nut Free and Perfect for the AIP diet as well!
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. Nutrition info below is strictly just for the toast, not any of the toppings you see in the pictures.

If I use 2 eggs in this recipe do I omit the water
I just put mine in the oven but it does not look like yours does in the video. It’s far more crumbly and I did not make any substitutions. I am hopeful that somehow it comes together...
Rewatched the video and it looks like you only used 1/2 tsp baking powder as opposed to 1 tsp in the written recipe so I tried it again with 1/2 tsp and with eggs instead of the gelatin. Not sure which of the two changes made a difference but it came out better the second time, thankfully. I did prefer the flavor with the gelatin though but don’t want to waste ingredients trying again so I may just continue on with the egg version!
Hi Rachel, while the video looks like I only added 1/2 tsp, I used it twice to equal 1 tsp.
Help! My dough was a crumbly mess. I couldn’t get it to come together no matter what.
Prior to baking it? Did you swap any ingredients?
This is what happened to my dough as well. I’ve tried twice. No substitutions. So much oil, it won’t stick together.
I did a live video on FB making this, here's the link which might help you working with it:https://www.facebook.com/SugarFreeMom/videos/280647392927804/
Is there a way to cut down on the oil? Perhaps a quarter cup of oil and a quarter cup Of???
I adapted this recipe from this one using almond flour and cheese, but it does have less oil:https://www.sugarfreemom.com/recipes/low-carb-avocado-toast/
I had pretty much the same question; can we use less oil? I see the almond flour one has only 1 T (plus the cheese). That's a huge difference. Would some cheese work in this one I wonder? I don't like olive oil in large portions and I'm afraid that's the taste that will come through. So, I don't know whether to try it or not...don't want to waste ingredients. 🙁
There is a huge difference between coconut flour and almond flour and I tested this recipe many times using different amounts of oil and it didn't work. Avocado oil is milder in taste than olive oil. Cheese also adds volume and moisture which is a another difference in the almond flour recipe.
Does this recipe make 9 servings? Am I reading your recipe correctly? I need to know how many crackers the recipe makes so I can use the nutrition information you supplied. Thank you so much. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe.
Yes I cut mine into 9 pieces, you could make them smaller if you want though.
How big is the pan you prepared this in?
Hello, I'm wondering what spreads you use for the toast? I'm starting keto AIP soon. I see avocado and olives on that one picture and I'm assuming smoked salmon on the other one, but what is the white spread on the smoked salmon toast? Thanks! Do you have other spreads that you recommend?
There's a dairy free cream cheese you ca get from Whole Foods by the brand Kitehill.
The vegan cream cheese is made of almonds so... not AIP...
Bummer! This sounded hopeful...but, alas, Coconut Flour doesn't agree with me. I'm thinking of trying a blend of tigernut and cassava flour (thought it wouldn't be low carb).
I dont eat eggs or meat products so the gelatin is out. Can I use flax seed powder for this recipe?
You might be able to swap the gelatin with the flaxseed but I've not tested it out for this recipe so I can't guarantee the same results.
Wonderful recipe! We can use sesame flour instead of coconut?thank you!
I've not tested it but I'm planning on it!
Hi - I love your recipes 🙂 I do have a question, I am on a AIP diet and one of my many intolerance's are all things coconut - could I use tigernut flour instead? Thank you -
I've never used tiger nut flour but I hope you try it and let me know!
I do not know what I am doing wrong, but mine is so crumbly and just falls apart. Any ideas?
My oven is electric, maybe they were just baked a bit too long in your oven. Did you use an egg or follow the recipe?
I followed recipe. I have an electric oven also. I think today I will try it with the egg.
I have one big problem with this recipe ... how do I stop eating them???
I had some beef gelatin powder in my pantry so thought I would give this recipe a try. So glad I did. Very easy and delicious. I don’t have an egg issue but will continue to use the beef gelatin as I really like the flavor it gives to the cracker.
I wish you the absolute best. I am on an Atkins forum that I've been almost since I started my weight loss journey 6.5 years ago - now happily on maintenance! Took off 50 lbs. Anyway, one of our gals is going through the exact same thing you are! She's getting a biopsy done on her thyroid now, but has been doing the elimination diet. She lost lbs she needed to take off as a side benefit, and started feeling a lot better. She's added foods back in and has learned a lot about what she can tolerate and not. We're waiting to hear about her test results. Tough going and I hope you feel supported! Your site is one of my top favs and I come back to you over and over. Left a note on your Cheesecake Brownies and tonight making One Minute Fudge Cookie for something quick.
Thank you for all you do and bring to us!
Thank you so very much!
Since going egg free a couple months ago, I've been missing keto type 'breads'. Thank you so much for this recipe. It is perfect. I didn't have parsley so I used Trader Joe's 'Everything but the bagel' seasoning. I paired it with BBQ shredded pork and it is so very yummy. I love your site and blog, Brenda. Thank you for all you do.
So glad you liked it, thank you!
DELICIOUS and so easy and fast! I made this with the coconut flour and olive oil... very good and crispy! Then I made it with gluten free baking mix by Briana with avocado oil... also very good even more tastey and less crispy unless I just did not cook it long enough. This recipe is a keeper.. thank you Brenda!! Perfect timing because I was craving crackers to go with my tuna fish!
Im not a fan of coconut flour - I assume I can use almond flour. Have you made it with almond flour? Would the texture and consistency be compromised?
Thank you for sharing your delicious recipes and taking the time to get 'em right! You are awesome!
Hi Brenda. Since I do not have an egg allergy, would I skip steps 2 and 3? In other words, I would combine the two eggs (minus the 6 tbsp of water) with the rest of the ingredients, and continue with step 4? Thanks.
Is grass-fed collagen hydrolysate the same as beef gelatin powder?
Not the same, no. The collagen is processed more finer and will not gel to make a replacement for an egg.
Would it work if i use regular unflavored gelatin powder?
Would the measurement remain the same?
