Low Carb Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Low carb grilled cheese sandwich| low starch

Today I am sharing a simple, yet delicious low carb grilled cheese sandwich. Only this time, we are not using regular sandwich bread 😉 #saywhaaat

 

I used to be a huge bread lover (I still am). Every meal had to have a piece of bread that goes with it.  Since I have been eating a very low starch diet lately, I haven’t touched regular bread in more than a month.  I can’t deny the early cravings  weren’t hard but I definitely have seen amazing benefits from my current nutrition protocol that I’m not planning on re-introducing wheat anytime soon.

 

Having only fewer choices of flours that are low starch can make things a bit hard for baking, but it also pushes me to get more creative in the kitchen.  The only two types of flours I have been using are coconut and almond flours. Coconut flour is a bit tough to work with as it crumbles easily when used alone. Almond flour can also be harsh on the intestines when consumed a lot.

My first couple trials did not go well to be honesty.  I failed miserably :p. The coconut flour alone was a disaster, I ended up eating it the whole thing with a spoon – which was not too bad since the taste is all that matters right?

 

Anyway, I finally figured out the right recipe for this delicious low starch sandwich and decided to share it with you all.

Few notes:

  • Although this recipe is super delicious, keep in mind that we are not using regular flour here.  This recipe is high in fat rather than carbs.
  • Healthy fats will not make you fat. period.
  • If you experience nut sensitivity, you can reduce the almond flour to 1 tbsp. Use coconut flour instead and add  one egg.
  • This recipe is very filling and light at the same time and it makes a great pre-workout snack!
