HOW TO MAKE THESE KETO CHEESE BREADSTICKS 

One thing I miss the most since we started Keto is bread. After posting my Keto BiscuitKeto Sausage Ball Puffs, and Keto Chicken Pot Pie recipe, I thought that surely I could make some adjustments to create a cheesy keto breadstick recipe.

Now, let me set the expectation. These will not taste EXACTLY like cheese sticks from your favorite Italian Restaurant since there is no gluten in coconut flour,, and the texture is different. However, they are an excellent keto/low carb alternative that will hit the spot.

I’ve had many people ask if you can sub out almond flour for any of my recipes that contain coconut flour. Just to let you know up front, I am sure you could. However, my daughter is allergic to almonds, so I don’t personally have any experience cooking with almond flour. It is not a 1:1 substitution as coconut flour is more absorbent. Generally, a great place to start is using 4x as much almond flour as coconut flour.

Ingredients:

  • Butter – you need fat to make the dough come together. The butter also adds flavor. 
  • Coconut flour – a keto-friendly gluten-free flour 
  • Cream cheese – adds moisture to the dough to help it come together. Coconut flour is very absorbent. 
  • Eggs – works as a binder 
  • Salt & baking powder 
  • Italian seasoning & garlic powder – adds Italian flavor 
  • Mozzarella  and Parmesan cheese – makes the keto breadsticks extra cheesy and delicious

Here is a step-by-step tutorial with images. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the full printable recipe with instructions. 

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 11X7 baking pan.

Step 2: Combine melted butter (I cool mine by popping the bowl in the fridge for 5 min), eggs, salt, and cream cheese,, then whisk together. Add coconut flour, baking powder, and spices to the mixture.

Step 5: Halfway through baking, use a pizza cutter to cut horizontally down the middle then vertically every inch or so to create a division in the individual breadsticks. I cut mine into 16 half breadsticks.

WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH CHEESY KETO BREADSTICKS?

I love serving up these keto breadsticks with just a bit of homemade marinara. You can also add these as a side to my Italian Meatball casserole or Lazy Chicken Parmesan with a low carb marinara sauce.

CAN YOU FREEZE THESE KETO BREADSTICKS? 

While these cheesy keto breadsticks are best right out of the oven, you may also want to make larger batches to reheat later. First, allow them to cool, then place in freezer bags or freezer containers, and they keep well in the freezer for up to 3 months. They are great in the refrigerator for several days after baking.

    I’ve been eyeing these for a while and decided to make these tonight. SO PERFECT! I halved the recipe since there’s only two of us. I should’ve made the whole pan!
