Sugar Free Cinnamon Sugar Toast

sugar free cinnamon toast recipe (6 of 7)

I thought cinnamon sugar toast was one of the foods that I’d have to kiss goodbye when I went sugar free. Turns out, it’s one of the easiest things in the world to make! I’m embarrassed to even call this a recipe.

But it’s so simple that you’ll totally love having this option as a breakfast treat.

You really only need your favorite sugar sub, and a good quality cinnamon. Here are the cinnamon facts, and why I chose to splurge a little on a good quality cinnamon powder.

Let me tell you, it’s worth it! There is not as much bitterness and bite to the ceylon cinnamon, but it’s full of flavor. This is a favorite, quick breakfast of mine, and my kids love it too!

Trim Healthy Mama notes: One piece of toast added to an S breakfast is an S helper. Or you can limit your butter to 1 teaspoon, and enjoy this as an E breakfast, adding in a piece of fruit and a low fat protein source like Greek Yogurt. sugar free cinnamon toast recipe (2 of 7)

I use xylitol as my (sugar free) “sugar” of choice. The grains are pretty large, so I opt for a shaker with bigger holes…the kind you find crushed pepper and parmesan cheese in. It gets the job done faster. Because you really can’t have TOO much cinnamon sugar on your toast!

Sugar free Cinnamon "sugar" toast recipe. THM friendly as an E or S helper

Sugar Free Cinnamon Sugar Toast
There are many ways to make cinnamon sugar toast...this is what I do! I keep plenty of cinnamon sugar mix on hand to make this quick breakfast treat anytime.
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 1 slice freshly toasted warm bread, I use sprouted whole grain
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • many shakes of cinnamon sugar (see recipe below)

    Cinnamon Sugar Mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar sub of your choice
  • 1 teaspoonceylon cinnamon, affiliate link
  1. Mix together the sugar sub and cinnamon, and store in a shaker jar. A salt shaker works fine for finer grain sweeteners, but I like the bigger holes on a parmesan cheese shaker for the xylitol that I use. (The grains are too big to fit through a salt shaker lid)
  2. Toast your bread, and butter it.
  3. Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Alternatively, mix butter and cinnamon sugar mix, and spread on untoasted bread, and broil until toasted.
THM type:
-if using an E bread, limit your butter to 1 teaspoon and serve with a lean protein and a serving of fruit to get your full healthy carb allotment.
-you can use an low carb, "S" friendly bread like a Joseph's Pita, or a flatbread from Aldi's, and butter and sugar it liberally in and enjoy in an S setting.
-you can use an E bread, and enjoy it in an S setting with liberal butter and that would be an S helper.
-you can use an E bread, and a piece of fruit, and pair it with sausage, bacon, eggs, or other yummy S breakfast foods to create a crossover breakfast.

 What’s your favorite way to make cinnamon sugar toast? Are you a shake it on last person, or a broil it all mixed in person? I need to know. :)

    I love it lightly toasted, then buttered, and then sprinkled with a cinnamon sweetener mix. To finish it off I pop it into the broiler so it melts altogether.
    Growing up, this was a special after school treat on rainy afternoons. Heavenly.

    I wish you could see me smiling. I was just thinking the other day how much I miss this breakfast food. Thank you so much! Can’t wait to try it tomorrow morning.

    Don’t use butter! Use coconut oil instead, it’s perfect and eat healthier. Sprouted bread , cinnamon and monkfruit mixture , toast bread “butter” with coconut oil powered with cinnamon and monkfruit mixture!
