Bread is my weakness. So are desserts. When I switched to keto, I had to find a way to have them without destroying my diet. I’m sure a lot of you who are new to the ketogenic diet have similar struggles with your favorite carb-based foods. Don’t worry, I’m on a mission to make everything low-carb and keto-friendly, so stay tuned. This garlic keto cheesy bread is already a winner, so feel free to try it.
Most Addictive Cheesy Garlic Bread Ever?
I may be a teeny tiny bit biased towards my own cooking, but come on, garlic bread that’s keto-approved in just 30 minutes? That’s pretty darn amazing if you ask me. In fact. I’d say that’s hard to beat considering this makes 12 servings—enough for a family of 3-4.
Start by putting your mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Cheese is a staple in ketogenic dieting because of the protein and fat content, not to mention it combines well with all sorts of other ingredients. It’s also high in calcium and vitamins and minerals which promote bone health.
Microwave on high until they melt and then mix together. Add the rest of the ingredients and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. The bulk of this recipe consists of almond flour, which–unlike refined white flour–is actually good for you! Almond flour contains protein and healthy fats, not to mention vitamins and minerals that promote cardiovascular health, weight management, and more.
While the dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Take out your dough and divide it into two. From each half of the dough into an oval sheet on your baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until it’s golden brown. Test to see if it’s done by inserting a toothpick into the center and seeing if it comes out clean.
Next up, the garlic butter—my favorite part. In a separate bowl, combine your butter, garlic and parsley and season with salt to taste. Try to use grass-fed butter when you can because it’s been shown to have more beneficial properties to it compared to grain-fed butter. Grass-fed butter even contains more omega-3s, not to mention it tastes better too. Brush the garlic butter over your freshly baked keto bread and serve.
Man, my mouth is watering just typing this. It’s crazily addictive and the smell alone will attract anyone to the kitchen. Be warned, you’re going to have to make large batches of this because it’ll go quick!
