Is Classic Garlic Bread Keto?

Indeed, a portion of classic bread with only 6 grams of net carbs would be about the size of a small battery.
How To Make Keto Garlic Bread
If you miss a classic cheesy garlic bread experience from your regular pizza store, this recipe is the solution!
Behind its fancy look, this keto garlic bread recipe is the easiest you can make at home.
Let’s see what you need to start with this delicious recipe:
- Almond flour and coconut flour – the combo of these two keto flours creates the best garlic bread texture, so don’t swap for another flour or don’t use just one of them. Learn how to choose your keto flour!
- Whole psyllium husk – for real bread with a chewy texture, don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements, this is not the same product, and it is not suitable for baking keto bread. It will turn food dry, purple, or blue.
- Eggs – eggs are low in carbs, making eggs keto-friendly.
- Garlic – powdered and fresh. Garlic is keto-friendly.
- Yeast – optional. See the next paragraph about yeast-free garlic bread.
- Melted butter – or olive oil if desired. Learn why butter is keto.
- Spices – this is optional, but seasoning the top of your garlic bread with chili flakes and dried oregano makes all the difference.
- Grated hard cheese – mozzarella is the one that makes the most cheesy strings, but cheddar, Parmesan, or Emmental also are tasty options. Find out how to choose keto-friendly cheese.
Making The Batter
Start the batter by proofing the yeast. It will make the bread crumbs airier and so much more bread-like.
To do so, pour the dried yeast into a mixing bowl and add some maple syrup and lukewarm water.
Maple Syrup is loaded with sugar, but it’s only here to activate and proof the yeast. In lukewarm water, the yeast wakes up and breaks down the sugar into water and carbon dioxide, making bubbles.
Once the yeast has been proofed, combine the dry keto garlic bread ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Pour the proofed yeast mixture on top of the dry ingredients and combine the batter with a silicone spatula.
When it starts to become too sticky for the spatula, knead the dough with your hands to form a large dough ball.
Rolling The Dough
This is a gluten-free bread dough, which means that the dough is stickier than regular wheat-based dough.
Consequently, to perfectly roll the dough, you must:
- Use pieces of parchment paper or silicone mats to encase the dough ball before rolling, or the dough will stick to the rolling pin.
- Rub the dough ball with olive oil.
- Brush garlic butter all over the rolled dough but add cheese to half of the dough.
- Fold as a pocket and pinch borders to seal.
Serving The Keto Garlic Bread
This garlic bread is a delicious side dish to any grilled meat, fish, or vegetables.
But, it is also an amazing party food idea to share with friends.
The best keto sauces to dip these keto garlic breadsticks are:
- Homemade tomato ketchup – your old-time favorite ketchup sauce, homemade with no sugar.
- Avocado dip – a simple avocado dip with Mexican flavors.
- Spinach avocado dip – a cold avocado spinach dip, 100% keto and dairy-free.
- Eggplant dip – this healthy roasted eggplant dip is keto-approved, and vegan with tasty Mediterranean flavors.
- Taco Dip Recipe – An easy creamy dip with delicious taco flavors.
This recipe is best served hot and eaten immediately.
But you can of course keep it in the fridge once it has been cooked.
Pop your keto garlic bread in the toaster, oven, or air fryer for a few minutes to reheat.
You can also freeze it for up to 3 months and reheat it in your oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
This Keto Garlic Bread is already low in carbs, gluten-free, and grain-free.
But you can make a few swaps if you have more requirements.
- Yeast-free: skip the yeast but use the same amount of water. The bread will be less puffy, but still delicious.
- Coconut-Free: replace the 1/2 cup of coconut flour with an additional 1 cup of almond flour.
- Psyllium Husk: you can replace the psyllium husk with a flaxseed meal, but the texture won’t be as fluffy.
