Keto Pesto Grilled Cheese (DF + GF)


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!

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!
