This keto Christmas garlic bread puts me straight into the Holiday mood. It’s perfect for your next Christmas dinner to add as a side to share with the whole family. This garlic bread reminded me of the taste of the breadsticks that you get at Olive Garden! Absolutely delicious!

One portion has a total of 1.5 g net carbs.

The ingredients for this keto Christmas garlic bread

I made this Christmas tree garlic bread with the fat dough I use to make keto lasagna noodles or keto pizza. And it works great for any kind of bread-like recipe.

Mozzarella cheese: The base of this ‘bread’ is made with shredded mozzarella cheese. I wouldn’t recommend substituting this cheese with any other cheese, since you need the firm consistency to hold everything together and create a dough.

Almond flour: I use almond flour in the process of making the lasagna noodles. I don’t recommend substituting this with any other nut flour. I’ve tried it with coconut flour before. It didn’t turn out well.

Baking powder: Some say baking powder is not keto-friendly because it’s high in carbs. But for me personally, I don’t mind using it in a small amount. As it does not affect the total amount of carbs that much. I do recommend using a gluten-free one. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but then you higher the chances of the tree, becoming flat.
