Before we adopted the ketogenic lifestyle, one of my favorite things to bake for my family was fresh bread, and boy did they love it too! They would gobble it all up while it was still warm from the oven!

I’ll admit that just like most of you, bread and sweets were the hardest for me to “give up” when changing our eating habits. That’s why I became determined to find alternative ways to satisfy those cravings. 

Over the years I’ve made many different keto bread but this keto garlic bread is one of my best! When I decided it was time to make a keto-friendly garlic bread recipe I wanted to be sure that it would really have that “bread feel”.

A crispy crust on the outside with a soft and slightly chewy inside!

It was also important to me that this keto-friendly garlic bread not be eggy or crumbly.

My goal for this garlic bread was to create a keto bread with that yeasty flavor you get in traditional bread that could be slathered in garlic butter and cheese!

I’m a humble girl but I will say I feel I met that goal! This keto garlic bread is definitely chewy and has that yeast flavor I was looking for.

It really feels, and tastes like traditional garlic bread!

Making low-carb garlic bread is pretty simple and doesn’t take all day either! You can be enjoying your cheesy garlic bread in just an hour!  

You’ll begin by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Then in a large bowl, you’ll combine the ground flax meal, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Next, proof the yeast by combining it with warm water and a teaspoon of sugar or inulin powder in a small bowl and setting it aside for 5 – 10 minutes. 

You’ll know the yeast is proofed when it bubbles and foams and rises slightly. Oh and don’t worry about the sugar as it gets eaten by the yeast and does not affect the carb count. 

If you’re still concerned and prefer to not use traditional sugar, inulin powder will also work to proof the yeast.

Then, to the dry ingredients, add the remaining warm water, olive oil, and eggs and combine well. Next, use a silicone spatula to spread the dough evenly on the prepared baking sheet. 

In a small bowl combine the minced garlic, softened butter, and spices to create the garlic butter that you will then spread all over the surface of your keto bread.

Once you’ve spread the garlic butter, sprinkle the surface of the keto bread dough with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. 

Before baking the keto-friendly garlic bread allow it to rest for about 30 minutes. This will give the yeast time to work and slightly rise. 

Bake at 400-degrees for about 30-35 minutes, or until lightly brown around the edges. Slice and serve!

You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freeze them for up to 3 weeks.
