A delicious keto-friendly seasoned cheesy bread made into the shape of a Christmas Tree for festive flair!


Easy Keto Dough:

Cheesy Garlic Filling:

  • 1/2 cup or 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 large teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley


  • shredded parmesan cheese, optional



To make the dough:

Combine the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and then cook for an additional 30 seconds or until the cheese has melted completely.


In a small bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk, baking powder, and salt, then stir to combine.


Add in egg and dry ingredients to the melted cheese and stir. Add the bowl back to the microwave for 30 seconds (this helps mix the dry ingredients). Once everything is mixed well and blended, you can make the dough into a ball shape.


Divide the dough into two equal pieces. Place one dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper and roll it out 1/4" thick into a shape of a long triangle, similar to a Christmas tree. Repeat the same identical triangle shape with other dough. Place one triangle on a parchment-lined baking sheet.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.


To make the cheesy garlic filling:

In a bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients. With a spoon or spatula, spread the filling over the dough that is on the parchment-lined baking sheet.


Add the other triangle dough on top of the filling. Pinch sides to make sure everything is lined up evenly.


With a knife or pizza cutter, cut 1” strips “branch” into the center of the triangle leaving about 1" in the center “tree trunk” until you have reached the bottom. Repeat on the other side as well.


Slowly grab a strip or branch and gently twist one time. By this time, the dough might be firm, so just be gentle twisting and pinching. If the dough is too firm to twist, pop the tray in the oven for 30-60 seconds to slightly warm it up. Twist all branches until you have reached the bottom.


Place in oven and bake until nice and golden brown, about 20-28 minutes. If the twisted breadsticks start to turn too brown before the center does, place foil over the edges of your baking sheet to prevent the burning of the breadstick "branches".


Remove from the oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes before diving in. Enjoy!
