Best Buttery Garlic Keto Breadsticks

Keto Buttery Garlic Breadsticks

yield: 8 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 12 MINUTES

total time: 27 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk mozzarella low moisture cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons full-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder + 1 teaspoon for butter spread (or 2 cloves of fresh garlic minced + 1 clove of garlic minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley + 1 tablespoon for butter spread
  • 4 tablespoons grass fed butter (I used Kerrygold)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • olive oil, optional

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper or lightly grease.

2

In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, parsley, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

3

Add mozzarella cheese and cream cheese to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave cheese mixture for 20 seconds and stir. Continue this process until the cheese is completely melted. Doing this 20 seconds at a time helps melt the cheese evenly instead of microwaving for a full minute.

4

Once the cheese is melted (about 60 seconds total) mix with a spoon to form a dough ball.

5

Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients — this is to make space for the cheese dough to combine evenly with the dry ingredients. Add the cheese dough and egg to the flour mixture and mix together. It's easiest to use your hands to combine the cheese dough with the flour mixture. Coat your hands in olive oil as needed to help keep the dough from sticking to your hands.

6

After the dough is completely mixed together, divide the dough into 8 even pieces. Roll out each dough ball to create a breadstick and place it on a baking sheet.

7

After the breadsticks are formed, sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese. Pat the cheese onto the breadsticks to help it stick to the dough.

8

Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, turning halfway through. Breadsticks are done when golden and slightly browned on the bottom.

9

While breadsticks are baking, make the butter spread topping.

10

To make the butter garlic herb spread:

Add butter, oregano, garlic powder, and parsley to a small bowl. Melt in microwave for 20 seconds or until the butter is completely melted. Stir to combine.

11

Once breadsticks are done, spoon the butter spread on top of them.

12

Enjoy!

keto breadstick with sauce

Bread is back on the menu… and it’s time to enjoy some keto breadsticks! 

Love Italian dinner nights with endless amounts of pasta and bread on the table? No worries! These incredible buttery garlic keto breadsticks only have 2.8g of net carbs compared to about 25g of carbs for regular breadsticks. Yes, really!

This means you can fill your plate again on Italian night and enjoy delicious keto-friendly bread.  And no one will even be able to tell the difference.

I’m so excited to share this Italian-inspired keto breadstick recipe with you!

These simple keto breadsticks are perfect for any occasion – from busy weeknights to parties to romantic candlelit dinners. One of the best things about making these keto breadsticks is that they are super easy and quick to whip up. This recipe uses the popular fathead dough, which is always a crowd-pleaser.

For this keto breadstick recipe, we recommend using a combination of both almond flour and coconut flour for optimal results. That said, it is possible to make it work using only almond flour, just note that the consistency will be a little different.

keto breadstick ingredients

Tips for making the best buttery garlic keto breadsticks:

    • To avoid sticky dough, coat your hands in olive oil before mixing the dough. If the dough starts sticking, just add a little more olive oil to your hands.
    • If you don’t have a microwave, you can melt together the mozzarella and cream cheese over low heat in a saucepan.
    • Again, try not to substitute out the almond and coconut flour. The combination of almond flour and coconut flour creates a wonderful texture. Just coconut flour breadsticks tend to be a little dry and more on the gritty side. Balancing out the two flours really gives it the perfect consistency. Because coconut flour absorbs moisture, it will also help soak up any liquid when baking and creates more of a true bread-like product. If you have to substitute out one of the flours, it would be better to use all almond flour than all coconut flour.
    • Enjoy these keto breadsticks while they’re hot. Since cheese is the main ingredient, the keto breadsticks will become hard once they’ve cooled. Reheat any leftovers in the microwave, loosely wrapped in a damp paper towel, for a few seconds.
