Gluten Free Eggplant Parmesan Simple, delicious, gluten free and low carb!

Gluten Free Eggplant Parmesan is low carb and gluten free!

The eggplant is coming on in the garden! Oh boy! It is the perfect time of year to make lots of Gluten Free Eggplant Parmesan. I grow the long, slender eggplants because they are just easier to cut and cook with but the big ole purple ones you get in the store work just fine too. They just may take a bit longer to cook because they are bigger. Either way, you will end up with flavorful, saucy, cheesy eggplant.

If you do not need to be gluten free, you can substitute the breading mix with regular bread crumbs.

I use my homemade spaghetti sauce so I am sure it is also gluten free and low carb. (PS; it is delicious too!) (AND it is easy to make a lot and freeze for later! :))

This recipe is adapted from a combination of Eggplant Parmesan from allrecipes and the 3-2-1 keto breading from screwedonstraight

2 small eggplants (about ½ pound total)

1 egg

3 Tbsp parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp flaxseed meal

1 Tbsp almond flour

1 cup spaghetti sauce

¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 Tbsp parmesan cheese


Peel and slice eggplant.

Put egg in a small bowl and scramble.

Combine parmesan cheese, flaxseed meal and almond flour in another bowl.

Dip each slice of eggplant into egg, let extra drip off and then dip into breading mixture to coat well.


Place each piece into a greased baking dish.

Spoon sauce onto each piece of eggplant.

Cover with cheeses.

Bake in a preheated 375* oven for about 25 minutes. The size of your eggplant will determine how long you need. If you have big pieces, they will need longer to cook.
