Keto Healthy Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Your entire family will eat it up because this Keto Healthy Baked Eggplant Parmesan is so filling and flavorful – and they won’t even notice that it’s super healthy and gluten-free!

For a taste that feels like comfort food at its finest, all the melted cheese and marinara sauce mix with the seasonings.

Plus, without having to use any gluten or flour, the almond flour breading leaves the eggplant perfectly crispy.

Try my baked shrimp with garlic and parmesan if you want something that has meat in it. With the same unmistakable flavor of parmesan, it’s a light meal.
