Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 8 garlic knots
Calories 180 kcal


  • 6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (roughly 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 ounces blanched almond flour (roughly 3/4 cup)
  • 2 ounces cream cheese (4 tablespoons)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • vegetable oil spray


  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large heatproof bowl, combine all dry ingredients (almond flour, garlic, oregano, baking powder, salt) until well-mixed.
  3. Add mozzarella cheese and cream cheese to the same bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir, and microwave for another 45 seconds or until the cheese is melted. Stir until the mixture forms a smooth dough.
  4. Add the egg, stirring it in until absorbed and well-mixed. If easier, use your hands to knead once the dough is cool enough to handle.

  5. Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a log about 9 inches long, and form into a knot-like shape. Place the knots at least 1 inch apart on the prepared lined baking sheet. Spray the tops with vegetable oil.
  6. Bake at 375 F until lightly golden on top, about 15 minutes. Remove the garlic knots from the oven. Set the broiler on high.
  7. In a small bowl, add butter and minced garlic. Microwave until melted. Brush the garlic butter over the tops of the garlic knots. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
  8. Return the garlic knots to the oven and broil until golden brown on top, about a minute. Serve while hot.
