Tips & Tricks


Recipe tweaking

You can replace the almond flour in this recipe with 1/3 of a cup of coconut flour. This is great if you have nut allergies or are simply not a fan of almond flour. If you want to make the dough vegetarian, feel free to skip the egg; however, the dough may not rise as well as with the egg.

Storing the dough

You can freeze Fathead dough for later use and to have a batch always on hand for this keto garlic bread. Wrap the dough in parchment paper and place in the freezer for up to three months. And as far as storing this low-carb garlic bread goes, you can keep it in the fridge, wrapped in parchment paper, for up to 5 days.

I’ve made this twice now and it’s been so good that I have not actually shared it with my husband. Sorry, husband.

I’ve been subbing out half the almond flour with coconut flour (so that works out to be 1/4 c almond, 1/6 c coconut) and it works beautifully. This is also a good size for a toaster oven, so you don’t have to heat the big oven in the summer.
