Keto Overnight French Toast Casserole could very well become your own favorite recipe for those special weekend brunch occasions. A great use of chaffles or any other low carb bread you prefer. Sweet rich base with crunchy pecan topping. Your family will love it!
Keto Overnight French Toast Casserole
I really love this simple low carb brunch casserole because everything can be done the day before. In the morning you can just pop it in the oven for 30 minutes or so and enjoy it with sausage and/or bacon.
And it’s so much easier than making individual French Toasts!
Special bonus: I discovered that cold leftovers taste like Pecan Pie!
Things You Will Need to Make This Low Carb French Toast Casserole
- 4-5 Chaffles or slices of Low Carb Bread (I made it with Chaffles)
- Heavy Cream
- Sweetener. For the casserole base you will want an erythritol blend like this So Nourished sweetener. For the candied pecan topping I recommend a brown sugar replacement like Sukrin Gold.
You will also need these tools:
- Glass pie plate or casserole dish
- Mixing bowl
- Waffle Iron (if you are using chaffles instead of bread)
Overnight French Toast Casserole Tips and Tricks
- Assemble your casserole the night before to let the chaffles or bread soak up the liquid.
- Check out the graphic below to visually see how to make chaffles. (or you can use low carb bread! but the chaffles are excellent!)
- You can also get more details here about how to make a basic chaffle.
- Remember you will need 4 chaffles so double the amounts in the graphic below since it shows instructions for making 2 Chaffles!
