Keto Garlic Knots Ingredients 

There are only a handful of ingredients that you need for this recipe. Here's is the breakdown: 

Pantry Staples

Fridge Items

  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • Grass-fed butter
  • Eggs
  • Fresh Rosemary

Definitely, use fresh rosemary. Trust us, fresh rosemary tastes 100 times better than the dried version. If you forget to pick it up from the store, you can use dried, but you'll need a bit more to get the same amount of flavor.

What Equipment You Need

Now let's cooking!

Keto Garlic Knots

Step #1. Chop The Rosemary

First, you have to chop the rosemary so you can use it on top of the garlic knots. 

How do you chop fresh rosemary? You only want to chop and use the rosemary leaves.

With your fingers, pull off the leaves. Then, finely dice them into small pieces.  Throw away the stems and don't use them.

Step #2. Melt the Cheeses

Next, melt both the mozzarella and cream cheeses together in the microwave. Make sure you melt them completely so there aren't any shreds of cheese left.

Step #3. Mix the Dry Ingredients With the Eggs

In a large bowl fitted to stand mixer with a hook attachment, mix together the almond flour, eggs, xanthan gum, yeast mixture, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter.

Next add in the melted cheese mixture. Beat on medium speed until all the ingredients are combined, scraping the sides of the bowl to help get the dough mixed together.

Allow the dough to cool slightly for 10 minutes so that it is easier to work with.

Step #4. Mix Together the Butter for the Garlic Knots

Now you will prepare the butter, garlic, and rosemary topping.

In a small saucepan over low heat, stir together the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter, garlic powder, and rosemary.

Set it aside until you are ready to brush it on the knots.

Step #5. Twist the Dough into Knots

Now you are ready to create the knots. Tape some parchment paper down on the kitchen counter and roll out 12-inch ropes that are 3/4-inch in diameter. 

Tie your dough ropes into knots and place them on lined baking sheets.

How you tie the knots is completely up to you. There isn't a wrong way or right way to twist garlic knots.

Quick Keto Garlic Knot Baking Tips

These are so easy to make, but here are a few tips before you start that will make sure you have the best knots turn out perfectly. 

  •  Make sure your cheeses are completely melted with no visible shreds. You can melt them in the microwave or on the stove, just stir them frequently. 
  •  Mix your dough while the cheese is still warm, but then allow it to cool slightly before rolling it out.  Allowing it to cool a little bit will make the dough less sticky and much easier to roll out.
  • Tape the corners of your parchment paper down so that it doesn't slide around while you are rolling out the knots.

Can You Freeze Keto Garlic Knots? 

Yes, you can freeze the garlic knots. Just make sure and wrap them individually in plastic wrap or else they will freeze in one large stuck-together pile. 

They will last about 3 months in the freezer. 

To thaw the frozen garlic knots, heat them in a 350°F oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they are completely warmed.
