Coconut Flour – This naturally grain-free and gluten-free flour comes from the meat of a coconut. It has a subtle coconut taste and smell, but it’s barely noticeable when mixed with other ingredients.
How to Make Keto Grilled Cheese
The full recipe & ingredients list are below, but here you’ll find a quick overview for making this recipe perfectly, along with useful tips and info!
This super easy grilled cheese recipe uses the same bread as our Keto French Toast recipe!
Start by whisking together all the ingredients for the bread, then microwave the bread mixture for 90 seconds and cut it into two slices. Melt butter in a pan and cook the assembled grilled cheese in the butter until the bread is browned and the cheese is melty. Easy peasy! Enjoy your grilled cheese hot on its own or with a side of tomato soup.
- Use a 4×6 or 5×7 baking dish for your bread, as a larger dish will make the bread too thin.
- Our recipe calls for American cheese or cheddar cheese, but you can absolutely use any kind of cheese you like!
- Add a little turkey meat to your sandwich before cooking for a delicious, keto-friendly turkey melt.
What Do We Mean By “Healthy?”
Our recipes focus on real ingredients and homemade elements. We try to avoid processed flour and sugar, like white flour or white sugar. Our recipes often swap less healthy options (like a commercial, deep-fried tostada) for an easy homemade version.
Our recipes are not necessarily low fat or low calorie, and we aren’t afraid of fat or carbs! Some of our recipes will be “skinny,” low carb, keto, paleo, dairy free, grain free, gluten free, Whole30, or vegan, and they will be labeled when they qualify for any of these diets. All our recipes are easy and family friendly!
