Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

I had an idea to try and create a keto garlic star bread and I am so glad it turned out perfect the first time round.

As many of us know baking gluten free breads isn’t always easy.

I think the gods smiled on me this one time.

Please read the blog post below. It has so many tips on how to firstly activate the yeast successfully.

Plus how to make the perfect fathead dough. And of course, how to successfully make this his amazing keto garlic bread.

Keto garlic star bread ingredients

This keto bread recipe only includes every day keto pantry essentials. You more than likely ave all these at home right now.

All you need to make the star bread recipe is

  • Mozzarella – I just use the pre-shredded full fat mozzarella from the supermarket.
  • Cream Cheese – I use Philadelphia brand as I find it a better consistency than cheaper brands like Aldi.
  • Yeast – I use Tandaco Instant Yeast sachets
  • Inulin – It activated the yeast. Sweeteners do not is you do not have it then I suggest you use 1 tsp of sugar or honey. Don’t worry as the yeast does consume the carbs.
  • Eggs – I always use the freshest of free range eggs. Free range eggs have higher Omegas and better taste. I also always use room temperature eggs in all of my gluten free bread recipes and low carb baking. Room temperature eggs eliminate the “eggy” flavour sometimes associated with low carb baking.
  • Almond meal or flour – the flour is finer and gives a better result but this loaf was actually made with meal so that you can see it works.
  • Baking powder – I always use Bobs Red Mill Baking Powder. It is both gluten free and aluminium free and has no bitter aftertaste. It also works in rising all gluten free breads or baking during the cold and heated stages.
  • Xanthan gum – helps to create gluten like structure to low carb and gluten free baking.
  • Herbs – just pick what you like or substitute 1 tbsp of Italian dried herbs.

How to make the BEST Keto garlic bread

Here are all my best tips to make the perfect Keto Garlic Star Bread every single time.

  1. Yeast should be foamy and thick with virtually all the liquid consumed by the yeast. Sugar or honey can be used in place of the inulin however sweeteners cannot as they do not feed the yeast.
  2. Any herbs can be used. Alternatively any pesto, spreads, cinnamon and sweetener for a sweet variety etc. I use the Thermomix® or processor to ensure the butter is creamy and easy to spread. Plus with the herbs blending it helps get a nicely coloured spread.
  3. I always use Bobs Red Mill double acting baking powder. It is gluten free and aluminium free so it does not have a bitter taste. Plus it works to help rise gluten free baking during cold and heating process.
  4. Whether you are using a food processor to combine the dough or a spatula you must continue to work the dough until it is not longer sticky. If you do not do this the dough is very difficult to work with.
  5. It is best to roll the dough between 2 pieces of baking paper. If you watch the video in the blog post you will see how I easily transfer the dough to the baking tray and bread stack. Plus the dough sticks to nothing. Press the dough out very thinly to approximately 25cm in diameter. You want each layer to be thin so that the fathead cooks all the way through.
  6. The garlic butter (or flavour of choice) should be spread very thinly between layers. Remember that fathead is “fatty” and more oil or fat will make the bread softer and oilier.
  7. Watch the video to see how easy it is to seal and tidy up the edges of the stack with a cake scraper. It is so easy.
  8. When cutting the dough into the strips for the stars do not cut all the way into the centre. Cut from the indentation mark all the way out to the edge. Please watch the video to see how this is done. I 100% recommend using a pizza wheel or pastry wheel for this as it does not tear the dough. Garnish with any spices or seeds you may prefer. I am not a fan of egg basted fathead but if you want to go there then be my guest.
  9. Be gentle and twist only the once with each strip before pressing the ends together. While in traditional Star Bread they twist twice fathead is not as stretchy as it contains no gluten.
  10. Season with what ever you please. Chilli flakes would be awesome too. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden and cooked through. I use a Fan forced oven, so adjust the cooking time according to your oven and taste.
  11. The dough is best used immediately and while still warm.
  12. The bread can be made ahead and left out to rise for an hour then left in the fridge overnight before baking the following day.
  13. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or bag in a ziplock bag and freeze for later

The best keto fathhead Thermomix recipe

Just a short note here for all our Thermomix® fans.

I have not usually used the Thermomix for making fathead or cheesy recipes as I do find it sticks in the bowl a bit.

But now everything has changed!

Since I have recreated the way I mix the fathead dough I retested in the Thermomix. I am so excited!

This is an amazing Thermomix fathead recipe. I followed the same steps and got every step to behave the same way as when I make it by hand.

In some ways I will prefer this method in the future because I can use the dough kneading feature and wont have to manually mix until it is firm.

So included for all your thermi-fans is a Keto Fathead Garlic Star Bread recipe and easy step-by-step instructions. So freaking chuffed with the recipe. (Can you tell?)

Variations and Serving suggestions

Of course our star bread can be made to whatever flavour you so choose. For more savoury options add things like olive tapenade, pesto, tomato paste or even Vegemite. There are endless combinations.

For a sweet star bread recipe simple add a little sweetener 1-2 tbsp to the dough. The layer with a Notella or cinnamon and sweetener for a tasty sweet bread.

While I was creating this keto garlic fathead recipe I was thinking about serving it with baked Brie in the centre so you could dunk the bread in it…. So I did it, haha!

Tools to make the Keto Garlic Bread

Look other than a few basic bits of baking paper, bowl and spatula these are two of my most used tools in the kitchen and as you can see in this video.

Cake Scrapers – great for work with crackers, dough, pastry, breads and of course cakes. You can use the link for a very cheap set.

Lekue Silicone Mat – this is without a doubt the best silicone mat I have ever had. It has literally been used A LOT over many years and is still perfect. With all the work I do I could not recommend this brand enough.

  • Using a pizza wheel cut from the indentation line (not all the way into the centre) to the edge of the dough. Cut into 16 equal segments. See Note 8.
  • Using two hands pick up two strips of the dough and twist away from each other then press the ends of the strips together to make the star points. Repeat with all strips to create the Star Bread shape. See Note 9.

    Hi! I love your recipes! Especially the bread ones. You’re really good at keto cooking and baking. Makes me wonder, do you have a recipe for tortillas? I’ve tried many but nothing come close to the real thing because of the almond and coconut flours. Just wondering if you’ve been able to come up with a good recipe for tortillas? Thanks!

    Thank you Megan. This bread was really good. I made it with just garlic butter as I have some who are fussy with herbs. My family loved it and my daughters boyfriend who usually won’t eat anything keto ate it and said he’d definitely eat again. It is the first bread my daughter has really enjoyed. Definitely will be making again and again.
