Keto Pesto Grilled Cheese

I’m still a child at heart and love a good grilled cheese. I combined my two favorite combinations to make the best Keto Pesto Grilled Cheese. Not only are the flavors out of this world, but this recipe is keto, plant-based, dairy-free, and vegan. Healthy never tasted so good!

This is a sponsored post with Carbonaut, but all opinions remain my own

What Makes Carbonaut So Awesome?

  • Carbonaut is a family-owned company on a mission to bring you low-carb bread that tastes as it came from the corner bakery.
  • They deliver a superior taste and texture to ensure you can enjoy low-carb bread without compromise.
  • BRAND NEW: They just dropped a new gluten-free keto bread that is incredible. Usually, gluten-free bread is tiny, but Carbonaut has large slices and the taste is out of this world!
  • Their gluten-free breads have only 1 gram of net carb per serving, no more than 50 calories, and 13-14 grams of fiber.
  • This bread is Gluten Free,  Keto-Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, and 100% plant-based.
  • They currently offer two-three varieties of gluten-free bread: Cinnamon Raisin, a Seeded, and a White Bread.

If you are like me and still crave bread while living low carb or keto, now you can have it with Carbonaut. I highly recommend giving them a try. You will be shocked at how it tastes identical to bread filled with carbs. I love stocking up and adding to my freezer so the bread lasts even longer. When I’m ready to eat a slice or two, I simply thaw and enjoy!
