Tear-and-share Garlic Bread (Keto)

Just in time for summer! This is a fantastic keto garlic bread roughly based on the fathead dough concept. This recipe will yield 12 slices and the macros have been calculated on one serving being 2 slices (because who eats only one slice of garlic bread at a braai?) – so this will sufficiently feed 6 people. I used equal amounts of (recently discovered) extra-fine almond flour and regular almond flour to achieve the texture I wanted. NOTE: I have not developed this recipe using only regular almond flour, but I anticipate a much stickier mixture which will be impossible to work with – so I encourage you to invest in a bag of the extra-fine flour. Sealed well, almond flour will last a long time, and you will love this keto garlic bread so much, its best you have a bag on hand this summer..

‘Rustic’ Pesto & Cheddar Fathead Rolls (Keto)

The Ham & Gruyere Rolls recipe that I posted a few weeks ago was so well-received (please try it), I decided to shake things up a bit and use a similar concept with fresh homemade Basil Pesto and grated Cheddar. There was one very significant change to the dough recipe (which is loosely based on the “fathead” concept): I experimented with extra-fine almond flour instead of regular almond flour. Some adjustments had to be made to the remaining ingredients, but the texture was exactly what I was after and the BONUS factor was that the raw ‘dough’ was SO much easier to work with! If you choose to follow this recipe, please use extra-fine almond flour – I cannot guarantee successful results if you don’t. I titled them “rustic” because while they do puff and rise, they lop to the side and look exactly like something that is made at home with love (that’s how we all cook, right?) Regarding the basil pesto, I really don’t want to blow smoke up my own… but my fresh, homemade basil pesto is simple unbeatable. It takes a few minutes to make and is SO worth the effort..

Mixed Seed Bread (Keto; Paleo)

I have worked so hard to make keto bread… and let me tell you, its not easy! This one is loosely based on the 90-second microwave bread I feature (its a fantastic recipe and I get loads of awesome feedback on it). The only issue is that that recipe needs a very specific Tupperware-size to make it and THIS one doesn’t. It requires only a bread baking tin (mine was 18 x 9cm / 7-in x 3.5-in) and I feel like I have a real winner with this one! I liken this bread to what I remember rye bread being. Its fairly dense, makes a smallish loaf – and really delivers on flavour!

Mini Rosemary Keto Rolls

I need to do more research on the guy that invented Fathead dough, so I can find him and plant a big fat one on him! I love it and use the concept for so many great dishes, but switched around some ingredient ratios until I was happy. Here, I made a batch of mini rosemary-flavoured ‘breadrolls’, yielding between 13 and 14 little rolls. The macros are calculated as one ‘serving’ being 2 mini keto rolls. You can use any appropriately-sized pan or baking tin, but I thought it would be attractive to bake, then serve (tear-and-share-style) straight from a cast-iron pan (mine was 20cm / 8-in diameter). Enjoy with just about anything and play around with different herbs – but I think I rocked these using rosemary..
