What is the secret for all keto bakery goods? Cheese! You can use it for the fathead dough to make pizzas, bagels, and bread. So, we are making one fantastic Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread.
We all know regular bread isn’t keto-friendly. Most store-bought keto bread brands contain at least one non-keto ingredient. So if you love baking, try making low-carb bread at home.
Gouda, mozzarella, and cream cheese are the basis of this recipe. They make the bread crispy on the outside and pillowy on the inside. Thanks to the addition of garlic powder and chopped leek, it has a delicious flavor.
Our recipe also calls for a small amount of almond flour to help bind all of the ingredients. Almond flour is an excellent source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been shown to help support heart health, reduce body weight and improve body composition, and assist with glycemic control in subjects with type 2 diabetes (*).
Almonds are also a good source of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant abilities in the body. Vitamin E has been shown to fight oxidation that is linked to numerous conditions, such as aging, cancer, cataracts, and arthritis. Vitamin E also protects the heart by reducing platelet hyperaggregation and clumping (*).
One of the best things about the keto diet is you can make your favorite high-carb meals with fats and proteins only to reduce the carb count. You don’t even have to worry whether that meal is healthy or not.
The best part is that you make it at home, so you are 100% sure what you put into your body.
Homemade Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread is super easy and super yummy. Put some meat and veggies between the bread pieces, and you’ll have your perfect meal in less than 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Mix Mozzarella, Gouda, and cream cheese in the blender. Blend for a while, then transfer the mixture into the medium-size mixing bowl. I use fresh mozzarella cheese here so it’s naturally wet. if you use shredded mozzarella cheese, you might want to add one small egg in.
Add in almond flour and the remaining seasoning. Mix with a spoon to combine. You can also use coconut flour in the same amount too.
Arrange three medium bread pieces on the parchment paper.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Make sure not to overbake! Enjoy!
