The secret to this keto garlic bread recipe is the creme fraiche. It is a type of sour cream that has a higher fat content and a creamier texture. It adds a rich and tangy flavor to the bread, as well as some moisture and elasticity. 

You can find creme fraiche in most grocery stores.

The other main ingredient is mozzarella cheese, which is the base of the keto dough. Mozzarella cheese is low in carbs and high in protein and calcium, making it a great choice for keto dieters. It also melts well and holds the dough together, giving it a chewy and cheesy texture. You can use either shredded or fresh mozzarella cheese, depending on your preference.

The rest of the ingredients are almond flour, garlic granules, baking powder, salt, and egg for the bread, and melted butter, parmesan cheese, garlic granules, and dried parsley for the topping. 

Almond flour is a gluten free and low carb alternative to wheat flour, and it adds some nutty flavor and crunch to the bread. 

Garlic granules are a convenient way to add some garlic flavor without having to chop or peel any garlic cloves. 

Baking powder and salt help the bread rise and add some flavor, while the egg binds the dough and adds some structure.

The topping is a simple mixture of butter, cheese, garlic, and parsley, which adds some extra flavor and moisture to the bread.

The best part about this keto garlic bread recipe is that it’s very easy to make and only takes about 25-30 minutes from start to finish.

All you need is a microwave, an oven, a large mixing bowl, a small bowl, a microwave-safe bowl, a sheet pan, some parchment paper, and a brush.

Ingredients

Garlic Bread

  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese: good source of calcium, phosphorus, and protein, which are essential for strong bones and muscles. It’s best to use pre-shredded bagged mozzarella rather than shredding your own. I suspect that the anti-caking agents added to pre-shredded cheese are helpful for the bread’s texture.
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche: a type of cultured cream that has a mild tangy taste and a thick consistency. It’s similar to sour cream, but it has more fat and less carbs, making it ideal for keto baking. It also contains probiotics, which are beneficial for gut health
  • 1/2 cup almond flour: high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, and low in carbs and gluten, making it a great choice for keto baking. It also provides vitamin E, magnesium, and antioxidants, which are good for skin, heart, and immune system health.
  • 1 tablespoon garlic granules: a natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal agent, which can help fight infections and boost immunity. It also contains allicin, a compound that can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg: I use large eggs in almost all of my recipes, this one included.

Topping

  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter: adds flavor and moisture to the bread. Butter is high in saturated fat, which can raise cholesterol levels, but it also contains some beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin D, and butyrate. Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that can improve gut health and metabolism.
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese: It’s best to use finely grated parmesan, not coarsely shredded.
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules or garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C and line a sheet pan with some parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the mozzarella cheese and the creme fraiche. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth.

Add the almond flour, garlic granules, baking powder, salt, and egg to the cheese mixture. Mix well until a dough forms.

Place the mozzarella dough on the prepared sheet pan and press it into the shape you like shape, about 1/4 inch thick. I make mine round-shaped. You can use another piece of parchment paper to help you shape the dough and prevent it from sticking to your hands.

Bake the bread for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, parmesan cheese, garlic granules, and dried parsley. Brush the mixture evenly over the top of the cooked bread.

Cut into slices and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour? 

A: No, you can’t use coconut flour instead of almond flour in this keto garlic bread recipe. Coconut flour is much more absorbent and requires more liquid and eggs. If you use coconut flour, your bread will be dry and crumbly. I will be posting a keto garlic bread with coconut flour soon and I will link it here when is ready.

Q: Can I use cream cheese instead of creme fraiche? 

A: Yes, you can use cream cheese instead of creme fraiche in this keto garlic bread recipe, but the texture and flavor will be slightly different. Cream cheese is thicker and denser than creme fraiche, and it has a more tangy and cheesy taste. If you use cream cheese, you may need to add a little bit of water or heavy cream to thin it out and make it easier to mix with the cheese. You can also use sour cream, Greek yogurt, or mascarpone cheese as alternatives to creme fraiche.

Q: How many carbs are in keto garlic bread? 

A: One serving of keto garlic bread (1/8 of the recipe) has about 1 grams of net carbs, 337 calories, 27 grams of fat, 16 grams of protein, 2 grams of total carbs, and 1 gram of fiber.

Q: Can you microwave garlic bread?

A: Yes, you can microwave garlic bread, but it won’t be as crispy and tasty as when you bake it in the oven. To microwave garlic bread, wrap it in a damp paper towel and heat it for 10 to 15 seconds, or until it’s warm and soft. You can also toast it in a toaster oven for a few minutes, or reheat it in the oven at 350°F/175°C for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it’s crisp and hot.

Q: Can you cook garlic bread in the microwave?

A: You can cook garlic bread in the microwave, but it won’t have the same texture and flavor as when you cook it in the oven or on the stove. To cook garlic bread in the microwave, you need to make a garlic butter mixture with softened butter, crushed garlic, parsley, and salt. Spread the mixture on one side of each bread slice and place them on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 40 seconds to 1 minute, or until the bread is cooked and the butter is melted.

Q: How long does garlic bread last in the fridge?

A: Garlic bread lasts for about 3 to 5 days in the fridge. Note, however, that bread stored in the refrigerator tends to dry out and might absorb other unwanted flavors if it is not tightly wrapped. To store garlic bread in the fridge, wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or place it in an airtight container.

Q: How to store garlic bread?

A: Garlic bread can be stored at room temperature, in the fridge, or in the freezer, depending on how long you want to keep it. At room temperature, garlic bread will keep for 1 to 2 days if wrapped in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. In the fridge, garlic bread will keep for 3 to 5 days if stored in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. In the freezer, garlic bread will keep for up to 3 months if wrapped in foil and placed in a freezer-safe bag.

Q: How long does garlic bread last?

A: Garlic bread doesn’t last very long, as it tends to become stale and lose its flavor over time. The shelf life of garlic bread depends on how it is stored and the ingredients used. Generally, garlic bread will keep for 1 to 2 days at room temperature, 3 to 5 days in the fridge, and up to 3 months in the freezer. To enjoy garlic bread at its best, it is recommended to eat it shortly after baking or reheating.
