Zero Carb French Toast For Your Type 1

Seriously.  These, zero carb mock French toast squares will be a lifesaver!  Especially if your child is recently diagnosed Type 1 diabetic.  Saving you from a very hungry kid that shouldn’t eat carbs at bedtime.  

Sidebar.  [if you want to understand why the response “just dose for it” when you are newly diagnosed is not helpful when it comes to the “no carbs between meals” rule, read here]

These zero carb mock French toast squares were amazing for the late night hunger that comes with a post Type 1 diabetes diagnosis.  I used to let my son sit in the bed at like 9:00 pm and eat these, he was that hungry.  And, beef sticks and jello just weren’t cuttin’ it anymore.  

If your Type 1 is burned out on the no carb foods you turn to too, then read on because I’ve got a resource for you at the end!

Type 1 Friendly Zero Carb French Toast

WHY YOU’LL LOVE THESE:

So let’s talk about the syrup for a second.  Of course, it must be Sugar Free.  Which isn’t actually carb free.  You’ll get numbers down in your head, start to know the carb counts for alllllllll kinds of food, LOL.  

But, for us and the brand we use; it is 5g total carbs for 2 Tablespoons.  Which, ok… uncovered (meaning, no insulin for the 5g) isn’t horrible, especially at bedtime.  BUT.  Essentially the “fake” sugar in Sugar Free, may cause blood glucose spikes.  

Something to watch/diagnosis if you notice high spikes after eating them with syrup.  

You an also add 1/2 tsp of maple extract to the batter and possibly forgo topping them with syrup.  Just because because maple extract is STRONG and can take over in a bad way fast!

This recipe uses one of those “all edges” brownie pans.  Or, I guess you call them a Brownie Bar Pan or a mini brownie pan
