Keto Garlic Knots


These garlic knots are so good that it feels like I’m cheating every time I take a bite I almost can’t believe they are Keto and Low Carb.

They smell and taste amazing straight out of the oven pillowy soft and cheesy with strong garlic flavors they look and taste like the real deal the parmesan cheese and garlic butter toppings take it to the next level.

Serve them as an appetizer for Low Carb Pizza save them for a snack or eat them all for dinner. Anything works.
 

Makings The Dough


To develop this recipe I used a standard “fathead” dough similar to the dough used to make my Keto pizza I spiced it up by adding garlic and oregano plus some baking powder to make the garlic knots more fluffy.

I recommend measuring out the dough ingredients by weight not volume for best results this is especially true for shredded mozzarella cheese the same amount by weight can vary substantially in volume depending on how it’s shredded and packed in a measuring cup.

Forming The Dough


After the dough is made, cut it into eight even pieces each piece should be rolled out into a long log. This is easiest if you have a clean work surface I use a silicone baking mat on my countertop which doesn’t slide around.

Once you have eight long logs you can form them into whatever shape you prefer I adopted pretzel-like shapes which turned out great I don’t recommend trying to tie an actual knot the dough will probably break apart before you can do that It’s not as elastic as wheat-based dough.

Baking Tips


Baking times vary from oven to oven so don’t solely rely on the time estimates provided in the recipe. This is especially true when using the broiler setting. Instead, frequently monitor the garlic knots to check their appearance.

The garlic knots should be lightly golden when they have finished baking and golden brown when they have finished broiling.

Your results can also vary depending if you use a rack positioned higher or lower in the oven I typically use a rack positioned in the center of the oven.

Reheating Leftovers


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

To reheat, place the garlic knots in a single layer on a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until sizzling and warmed through no need to flip or anything.

It’s the same method I use for reheating Keto biscuits and they will taste almost as good as when they were fresh out of the oven.
