This garlic bread is made with no yeast and no fancy gadgets required. You simply need 6 main ingredients and in 15 minutes, you have a delicious, chewy,and doughy garlic bread, minus the carbs!
How do you make keto garlic bread
- Almond flour– You want to use blanched almond flour, not almond meal. This will ensure the lighter texture and flavor.
- Garlic powder– Do not use garlic salt, as the cheese and yogurt already have added salt. Besides, the sprinkling of parmesan cheese on top will add extra salty flavor.
- Mozzarella cheese– Either pre-shredded mozzarella cheese or you can shred a block of mozzarella cheese.
- Greek Yogurt– Melted with the cheese to yield a creamy mixture. You can also use sour cream or cream cheese.
- Egg– Holds the garlic bread together! You’ll add the egg at the end, to ensure the egg isn’t cooked by the warm cheese.
- Butter– Mixed with the minced garlic to brush over the tops of the garlic bread.
- Garlic– Freshly minced garlic or garlic from a jar.
- Italian herbs– Just a sprinkle to give extra flavor!
- Parmesan cheese– A little to sprinkle over the top to give that burst of flavor.
Start by adding your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, add your shredded cheese and Greek yogurt, and heat until the cheese has melted. Whisk together the cheese and yogurt until combined. Add the cheese mixture, along with the egg, into the dry ingredients. Mix well, until fully combined and turns into a dough.
Transfer the dough onto a baking sheet and flatten out to a thin, oval shape. In a small mixing bowl, combine your melted butter, garlic, and herbs. Whisk together, until combined. Brush over the top of the garlic bread and bake for 15 minutes at 180C/350F. Remove from the oven and let sit for several minutes, before sprinkling with parmesan cheese.c
Tips to make the best keto garlic bread
- Gently knead the mixture until a firm and thick dough remains. Be sure to melt your cheese completely, for it to be easier to combine.
- Move quickly when adding the cheese to the flour. The longer the cheese cools, the harder it will be to mix into the almond flour.
- Feel free to add extra spices or herbs into the dough, instead of just sprinkling on top.
