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.

  1. Hello. Im new-ish to keto lifestyle (about 2 months) and in finding your recipes, I feel like I hit the jackpot!! The recipes I’ve made so far turned out amazing. I love the simplicity and not 1million uncommon ingredients in each recipe. Thank you so much for your hard work and inspiration!!

    1. Hey Melissa, The greased baking an is the same dish that the dough mixture is baked in.

  2. Trying this for the first time….the recipe shows nutritional values…but…what is the serving size along with the nutritional values? How many pieces equals a serving size and what are the nutritional values in each serving?

    1. The number of servings is listed at the top of the recipe card. I divide the recipes evenly by the number of servings.

  3. 5 stars
    Breadsticks turned out yummy! Your instructions were easy to follow. I liked the texture of these, soft and fluffy, not crumbly. I bet these would be good with chopped pepperoni baked on top too! Thank you for the recipe!

  4. Hi! I made these today on a whim and they are perfect. Ty for sharing your recipe. Can I freeze them?

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I addressed in the comments in the post on how to freeze the breadsticks.

  5. Just tried these and they were great. Just like all of your recipes. Mine were all little try but I think I cooked them too long. Also thinking about using this as a pizza crust. What do you think

  6. 5 stars
    How many are a serving? Also I used almond flour instead of coconut flour. Used the same amount 1/3 cup. And I added pepperoni on top. It came out perfect!

    1. The number of servings is listed at the top of each recipe card. For this recipe, the number of servings is 8.

  7. Hi,

    Love your blog/recipes! I’m confused, though – do you count the NET carbs or TOTAL carbs if you’re on a 20 carb diet? Different websites/blogs say different things, either that or I read them wrong. Please help – thanks!

    1. There are many variations to the keto diet. Most count net carbs and keep them to approx 20-25 a day. That being said, I would do a bit more research to determine what would work best for you and your lifestyle.

  8. 5 stars
    Well, this did not disappoint! Hubby and I had this today for the first time, and it will not be the last. It came together easily and came out delicious. I always love it when what I cook comes out looking like the fancy pictures in the blogs. So many possibilities with this too. I was certainly reminded of “Granny Pies” Pizzas. With a very small modification, this would be perfect. We Highly Recommend this delicious side dish, even though Hubby was happy enough with this, he could have skipped my Main Dish of the day.
