Keto Christmas Tree Pull Apart Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks
The most festive keto appetizer ever! 🎄
Want to give your family a little something extra special this Christmas? Why not make this fun Christmas tree pull-apart keto cheesy bread for an appetizer?!
I used our amazing easy keto dough recipe and kicked it up a few notches for a holiday snack that the entire family will be munching on. They’ll never even realize it’s low carb, it’s that good!
Hip tips for making the best keto Christmas tree pull apart cheesy garlic breadsticks:
- When rolling out your keto dough, place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. This will prevent it from sticking.
- For the filling, make sure to not melt the butter completely, you just want it softened to have a paste consistency so it spreads evenly over the dough.
- Did you know Kerrygold sells garlic and herb butter? It must be amazing because it’s always sold out at my grocery store, but I’m dying to try it.
- Make sure you roll the dough pretty thin. Since you will have a filling and two layers of dough, you want to be able to twist the branches easily with a thinner piece of dough.
- If you want to make this into a heartier appetizer, add pepperoni slices and dip the breadsticks into your favorite keto marinara sauce. I love Rao’s because it’s delicious and has no added sugar, too!

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“I absolutely love anything food-related that is Christmas-themed and this does not disappoint! It’s beautiful, fun to make, and tastes great. I can’t wait to make it again and use pepperoni and a little extra cheese on top.”
