How to Make Keto Garlic Bread {Quick Overview}

This is just a quick overview of some of the steps involved in making the low carb garlic bread. For the recipe in detail, including exact measurements used at each step, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

Step 1: Make the Dough

This bread uses fathead dough, a classic keto-friendly dough that contains a base of cream cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, eggs, and keto-friendly flour.

Preheat oven, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.

Combine coconut flour, Swerve (or other keto-friendly sweetener that measures 1:1 with sugar), baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

2 steps to making fathead dough

In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together mozzarella cheese and cream cheese, and microwave for 45 seconds on high. Remove the bowl and stir the mixture, making sure to spread out the cream cheese as much as possible. (Photo 1)

Return the cheese mixture to the microwave for another 45 seconds. Remove the bowl and stir again, fully combining the mixture. (Photo 2)

2 steps to making keto garlic bread dough

In a separate bowl, combine eggs, whipping cream, and flour mixture. Add the cream cheese and cheese mixture (Photo 3) and knead with your hands until a dough forms (Photo 4).

TIP: If the dough starts to stiffen, that’s okay! Just microwave it again for a few seconds.

Step 2: Roll the Dough and Make the Bread

5 steps to making garlic bread

Place your dough on your lined baking sheet (Photo 1) and roll it out into a 10″ x 6″ rectangle (Photo 2), then bake.

TIP: For best results, place the dough on a non-stick baking sheet, ideally one topped with a non-stick silicone baking mat. On top, place another non-stick silicone baking mat or a piece of parchment paper. Then, roll the dough into the desired shape with a rolling pin. This makes the dough much easier to work with!

While the bread is baking, combine melted butter, Italian seasoning, and minced garlic into a small bowl. (Photo 3)

Remove bread from oven (Photo 4) and top with butter mixture and Parmesan cheese (Photo 5).

Return to oven and bake until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes).


How to Make Keto Breadsticks

This recipe doubles as keto breadsticks! Instead of cutting into larger pieces, cut the finished product into long, thin strips.

Can I Eat Garlic Bread on the Keto Diet?

You can eat garlic bread on the keto diet as long as you use a low carb recipe for the dough like fathead dough. Most garlic breads are high in carbs because they use wheat flour, oat flour, or some other high carb flour. When you use a fathead dough recipe when you make your garlic bread you will be using low carb flours like almond flour and coconut flour, making garlic bread acceptable on keto.

How Do I Make Garlic Bread Keto-Friendly?

You can make garlic bread keto-friendly by following a low carb bread recipe like fathead dough. Fathead dough uses low carb flours like almond and coconut, unlike traditional bread recipes that use wheat and oat flours.

In addition, a keto-friendly garlic bread uses mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in its ingredients to provide structure and texture instead of heavy carb alternative ingredients. Using cheeses in the ingredients increases the fat content in the bread and reduces the net carb amount.

Can I Eat Garlic on the Keto Diet?

You can eat garlic on the keto diet because of its strong smell which makes it difficult to overeat it. Per 100 grams garlic has 25.5 net carbs. However, 100 grams of garlic is too difficult to consume and too unhealthy (no one would go near you) for the vast majority of people.
