Low Carb Eggplant Bites

These Low Carb Eggplant Bites are vegan, gluten-free and low carb. if you are craving for pizza but dreading the carbs, well these delicious treats are just right for you! I found myself craving for a gluten-free pizza but I didn’t have all the ingredients to make my Mediterranean Pumpkin Pizza, and we had run out of store-bought  Daiya Pizza.

I decided to whip up this easy to prepare, Low Carb Eggplant Bites and they were so delicious. I added my favorite toppings, tomatoes, artichoke hearts and a delicious and creamy almond sauce. For the breading, I used seasoned almond flour as the base after dipping the eggplant slices in a mixture of vegan mayo and almond milk. if you don’t have vegan mayo almond milk mixed in a little cornstarch is fine.
