One thing I have missed for a long time with my low carb life are sandwiches.
Most ordinary sandwiches I can substitute cloud bread and all is well. Sandwiches that require toasting don’t work so good with the cloud bread though.
I saw a friend of mine post something called 90 second Keto Bread yesterday on her Facebook page. Hmmm interesting I thought. Right there, I made a plan to have grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner last night.
I need something quick and easy as I was out picking up kids and wouldn’t have any time for drawn out lengthy meal prep. When the kids get home, they are HUNGRY!!
I just googled the recipe and took the first one that came up. It was from Low Carb With Jennifer.
The recipe is very simple, and you mix it in a dish, throw it in the microwave for 90 seconds and Presto! (Why have I never heard of this before lol)
90 Second Keto Microwave Bread
- 3 tbsp almond flour or 1 1/3 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp oil (melted butter, melted coconut oil, avocado oil)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 large egg
- tiny pinch of salt
So I gave it a try. I mixed up enough for 2 pieces of the bread, and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes 45 seconds.
I put them into one of my kids sandwich lunch box containers because that was the approximate size I needed (about 4 inches x 4 inches)
I thought it turned out pretty decent for my first attempt! The pieces were fluffy but dense and much thicker than a normal slice of bread.
Next, I just used the pieces to make a grilled cheese sandwich as per normal, buttering the one side to make them brown up nicely.
I am really happy with how it turned out.
YAY I get to enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches with the family again!! I wonder how they would work for a toasted tomato sandwich. I LOVE those!
The slices were really quite thick and the sandwich was VERY filling.
Here are the Macros for it.
It came out at 82% Healthy Fat and only 3 net carbs per piece, and I’m totally okay with that 🙂
