When I switched to a ketogenic lifestyle and lost 85 pounds I totally thought that bread would be lost to me.  But it’s not!  And today I am excited to share my super easy (I promise!) keto breadsticks recipe with y’all!

Traditional bread has ingredients like; wheat flour, high fructose corn syrup, hydrolyzed soy protein, interesterified soybean oil and wheat gluten that are not keto!

The not so secret ingredient in this recipe is cheese, a staple when following a keto diet! Combining mozzarella cheese and almond flour is the key to creating the fathead dough used in this recipe.

These keto breadsticks will not rise like traditional breadsticks that are made with yeast but they will puff up slightly and keep the twisted look. Check out my regular breadsticks recipe too!

They are perfect to pair with keto soup like this Low Carb Hamburger Soup, Keto Taco Soup or Keto Tuscan Soup. Store these bread sticks in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days or in the freezer for up to three months.

Tips for keto cooking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes.  Like cauliflower instead of perogies and radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats.  Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly rotation.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
