Haven't tested yet, but if I spike, it'll be because I used a spoonful of Splenda brown sugar blend sprinkled on top of my first piece of toast. Otherwise, there's nothing here that has ever spiked me.

2 extra large eggs, beaten
dash of salt
splash of vanilla extract
1 to 1½ cups cream diluted with water
4 slices Ezekiel Sesame bread
coconut oil for frying

Whip together the eggs, salt, vanilla & cream. Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and fry in hot coconut oil. (Since I let my bread soak a few seconds in the egg mixture, to get a good custardy thing going, I keep the skillet turned down around medium so they don't get too brown before they get cooked clear through).

I ate mine with coconut oil, a little butter & the aforementioned Splenda blend; everlovin' ate his with maple syrup & pronounced it good. On my second slice I used a little sweetened cream for my "syrup" and it was excellent!

I'll try to remember to get back here with test results . . . :eek:

I just bought a loaf of the Sesame bread. I've been making grilled cheese spread with coconut oil and I cook them in my old painni maker. The french toast sounds fantastic.

We just bought a loaf of the sprouted bread yesterday. We both really liked it and I seem to do okay with it but there is no way we could afford to eat it all the time... It was 4.59 a loaf. Has anyone tried the sprouted wraps?

Me either, Mindy . . . so sprouted bread goes into the rotation with my Olé tortillas & Earthgrains thin buns . . . for an occasional change of pace. My freezer is getting to be as full of "bread" now as it used to be when I'd bake 3 loaves of homemade bread & freeze 2. Only now it's these three low-carb items. :D

Shanny, with your cooking and baking skills, couldn't you come up with a recipe for a low carb bread?

I've tried to, but haven't had great success so far. All these years, I could always bake better bread than we could ever find in stores; now in trying to low-carb the recipes, I haven't been able to match the ones I'm buying in either quality or good BG effect.

I'm hoping jwags will start directing our attention to some of her recipes . . . I think she's been practicing this a little while longer than I! :D

I pay 3.89 at Trader Joes or buy it on when it goes on sale at our local store. It is pricey but I only go through a loaf a week. Since eating it my bg control has been a lot better. Since I don't buy any processed junk food anymore I figure it is the same price as a bag of chips. I've experimented with different bread recipes and haven't found anything that rises. I make an almond flour bread that is pretty good but more like the consistency of banana bread. I have also made flaxseed foccacia bread which is pretty good.
