What’s one of the worst things about a keto diet? No bread! But don’t you worry your pretty little head. We’ve got lots of solutions. We’ll link to several below. But, this blog is all about our favorite way to eat a healthy sandwich: Easy Low Carb Sandwich Thins!
Some of our Bread Favorites
Sweet Potato Toast (not low carb, but still a fave!)
Low Carb Sandwich Thins Highlights
- Just a touch of apple cider vinegar– but boy does ACV contain lots of health benefits!
- Completely flour-less
- Nut-free option (use all tahini)
- Almond butter has tons of health benefits. Read about them here.
- Avocado oil also contains many health benefits. We all know avocados are extremely nutrient-dense. So, it makes sense that we should be using avocado oil as well. Avocado oil has a high smoke point which makes it one of the best oils for cooking. It’s also a monounsaturated fat. Avocado oil is a relatively good source of lutein (an antioxidant good for eyes). Avo oil also enhances the absorption of nutrients, like carotenoids, from other foods.
- Only 2.5 net carbs per serving
As stated in the recipe, the batter should be thin, but not spread all over your baking sheet. So adjust your oil, as needed, based on the oiliness of your nut and tahini butters.

Sandwich ThinsPrint Recipe
- 6 tablespoons natural salted almond butter
- 2 tablespoons tahini*
- 1½ tablespoons avocado oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together the almond butter, tahini and avocado oil until smooth. Add the eggs and stir until fully incorporated (this can take a minute or two).
- Stir in vinegar and baking soda. Mixture will be thin.
- Lightly spray a silpat or parchment paper with 6 sprays. Carefully spoon 6 heaping tablespoons onto the lined baking sheet and use the back of a spoon to shape into 6 sandwich thin-sized circles. Repeat steps on a second sheet with remaining batter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
*You can use all almond butter, if desired. Your macros will vary slightly.
If your nut and seed butters are very oily, reduce the avocado oil a bit. The batter is designed to be very thin but will hold a basic circle shape. If your batter is so thin that it’s runny and unable to hold a shape, you can add a teaspoon of coconut flour to the batter.
