Homemade Macro-Friendly, High-Fiber Sandwich Thins


This post may contain affiliate links.

If you know me, you know that I love a good egg white egg sandwich.  Yum!  It’s one of my favorite items on the menu.  It’s easy, low-fat, good for me, high-fiber deliciousness.  Plus, it’s so easy for me to take along with me on the go!  Just grab the sandwich and I am off.  It’s a great pre-workout or post-workout meal!

Finding good bread is hard.  I like lower-carb and higher-fiber.  The fiber fills me up longer – and helps me better adhere to my eating plan.  Adhering to my eating plan is of utmost importance.  If I don’t adhere to the plan, then I don’t achieve my goals.  Plus, I want to know what I put in my body is good for me, you know?  When I make something homemade, I know I am using free-range eggs and butter from pastured cows, which isn’t the case when you buy Arnold Sandwich thins.  Who knows what kind of sugar, salt, and eggs they are making their bread from.



My sandwich thins are only about 18g carbs, 1g fat and 3g protein (depending on how large you make them).  They are really easy to make.  The dough isn’t sticky or hard to deal with.  They are substantial (don’t fall apart), and lest I not forget, they are delicious and good for you.

Along with my homemade English Muffins, these are my go to for almond butter sandwiches, egg sandwiches, chicken breast sandwiches, and my homemade skyr yogurt and jam sandwiches!  The sandwich thins are about 10g less in carbs, so it’s really my go to when I am in a deep cut, and want to incorporate bread into my diet.

  2. Melt butter with water and honey  until very warm (about 120-130 degrees F using a digital thermometer).  Make sure it's not hotter, as it will kill the yeast.

  6. Kneed for 5-6 minutes, adding just enough of the remaining 1/2 half cup of flour to flour the surface, and to make the dough workable.  Reserve the remaining flour to roll out dough.

  7. Cover dough and allow to rest for 10-minutes.  Place on top of warmed oven

  8. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface (use reserved flour), until about 1/4 of an inch thick.  Using a glass/biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or whatever to cut 3-1/2 inch thick diameter rounds.  Place rounds on prepared sheets, and place on top of warmed oven.

  9. Using a fork, prick several holes in the sandwich thins so that the rise is even.  Brush with warm water.

  10. Cover with a towel and allow to rise 30-minutes until puffy.

  11. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.  Allow to cool completely.  Cut in half and fill with your favorite fixings, or store uncut in the freezer for up to 3-months.
