Keto Garlic Knots

Recipe by Danielle Wiens






Serves 04

Crisp on the outside and moist on the inside, these Garlic Knots are the best things since sliced bread (or since giving it up). Serve them as an appetizer or side, or grab one on the go for a perfect high-fat snack.


  1. 1

    Pre-heat oven to 400 F.

  2. 2

    Lightly oil a heavy-bottomed pot. Heat mozzarella cheese and cottage cheese together over low heat. Warm cheese until it can be thoroughly combined. You’re looking for it to form into something resembling a dough. Remove from heat.

  3. 3

    Mix in by hand a half-cup almond flour, baking soda, egg, and minced garlic.

  4. 4

    Combine sea salt, garlic powder and onion powder in a bowl. Mix in half of this spice blend into the dough. Knead together until a consistent dough is formed.

  5. 5

    Mix the other half of the spice blend with a tablespoon of almond flour.

  6. 6

    Divide the dough into four portions. Roll into balls, then roll the balls out into long strands.

  7. 7

    Sprinkle one-quarter of the spice blend onto a cutting board. Roll out a dough strand on the cutting board, lightly coating it with the spice mix. Repeat with the rest of the spice blend and dough.

  8. 8

    Tie the strands into knots similar to pretzels.

  9. 9

    Place knots on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Sprinkle with flakey sea salt.

  10. 10

    Bake for 12-15 minutes.

  11. 11

    Let cool, then store in an air-tight container for up to one week.
