Keto Garlic Knots

The Ultimate Guide to Making Irresistible Keto Garlic Knots

Essential Tools and Ingredients

To create the perfect keto garlic knots, you will need some essential kitchen tools and ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

Kitchen Tools:

  • Deep glass mixing bowl
  • Silicone spatula
  • Measuring cups
  • Baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Ingredients for the Dough:

  • ¾ cup Miracle Mix
  • 2 pastured eggs (one whole, one egg white)
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ounces full-fat cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Ingredients for the Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make

Step 1: Preheat Your Oven Preheat your oven to 375°F. This ensures the oven is hot enough to bake the knots evenly.

Step 2: Prepare the Cheeses In a medium-sized bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and the full-fat cream cheese. You can either use a double boiler method to melt the cheeses or microwave them in 45-second bursts until they are fully melted and combined. Stir well to ensure a smooth consistency.

Step 3: Combine Dry Ingredients In your deep glass mixing bowl, combine ¾ cup of Miracle Mix, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix these dry ingredients thoroughly to ensure they are evenly distributed.

Step 4: Mix Wet Ingredients into the Dry Add the melted cheese mixture to the dry ingredients. Then, add the whole egg and egg white. Using a silicone spatula, stir the mixture until all ingredients are well combined.

Step 5: Knead the Dough Once the mixture is well combined, use your hands to knead the dough. This helps to fully incorporate all ingredients, resulting in a smooth and sticky dough.

Step 6: Shape the Dough Divide the dough into 8 equally-sized portions. Roll each portion into a 9-inch log. Cut each log in half to create two smaller logs. Form a circle with one of the smaller logs and pinch the ends to close. Take the other half and insert it into the center of the circle, folding it around to create a knot shape.

Step 7: Prepare for Baking Place the shaped knots onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If desired, brush the knots with an egg wash to give them a shiny finish once baked.

Step 8: Bake the Knots Bake the knots in your preheated oven for about 14-16 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.

Step 9: Prepare the Garlic Butter Topping While the knots are baking, prepare the garlic butter topping. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and mix it with 3 minced garlic cloves and 1 teaspoon of dried parsley.

Step 10: Finish and Serve Once the garlic knots are baked to a golden brown perfection, remove them from the oven. Brush each knot generously with the garlic butter mixture and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve warm and enjoy!
