This easy keto garlic bread is a delicious side dish or appetizer. Made with a keto bread that is flourless, gluten free and nut free too.
The bread is light, fluffy and airy and a great low carb substitute for a baguette. For those with nut or coconut allergies, this is a great low carb bread for you. Oat fiber, whey protein isolate and psyllium husk powder are the main ingredients for this keto bread.
How to make keto garlic bread
No almond or coconut flour is used to make this keto bread.
- Oat fiber - For this recipe I have used the Lifesource brand of oat fiber.
- Psyllium husk powder - Finely ground psyllium husks in powder form helps bind the bread in the absence of gluten.
- Whey protein isolate powder - Make sure the powder is unflavoured. Plain whey protein powder will work too.
- Greek Yogurt - Full fat yoghurt
- Eggs - Medium sized eggs.
- Apple Cider Vinegar - This acts with the baking powder to give the bread volume in the absence of gluten.
Make it a keto garlic cheese bread
You could have this low carb garlic bread as it is or add some grated cheese to make it a keto garlic cheese bread. Grated cheddar or mozzarella can be added to the slices after the garlic butter is spread on the bread before the bread is returned to the oven.
The whey protein isolate powder could be replaced with coconut or lupin flour.
When mixing the dough, it may seen fairly moist but with damp hands you will be able to shape the baguette. The bread will rise but keep it's solid shape.
To alleviate the dreaded purple colour from psyllium husk powder, I find that griding psyllium husks in a coffee grinder help. I use the NOW brand.
