  • 2 1/4 tsp dry instant yeast (one regular packet)
  • 1 tbsp white sugar yeast will eat this! It is necessary, you can use 2 tsp instead if you'd like but I can't guarantee the same rise for this amount of dough
  • 1 1/4 cup Vital Wheat Gluten 154g
  • 1 cup almond flour 112g
  • 1/2 cup oat fiber 96g
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour 30g
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp of each rosemary thyme, garlic powder and onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 7 tbsp olive oil 105ml
  • 1 tbsp sour cream room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cup warm water


  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp garlic butter or crushed garlic + regular butter, 60g
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella shredded, 8oz
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp fresh parmesan grated, ~50g
  • additional fresh or dry basil


  • In a large bowl, whisk together all of your dry ingredients up to and including pepper.
  • Next, add your sour cream, olive oil and water. (I like to add my water a bit at a time but 2 1/4 cups should be a perfect amount, this dough absorbs a lot more liquid than you'd think!)
  • Mix the dough using a spoon and then begin to work it together with your hands.
  • To knead to dough, you can either knead it by hand on a clean flat surface for ~10min OR knead it with a dough hook in a stand mixer for ~7-8min.
  • Next form your dough into a ball shape and place it in a greased bowl. Cover it with Saran Wrap or tin foil and let it sit somewhere warm for 1-2 hours OR until doubled in size. (I like to put mine in a previously heated microwave or oven that's warm but not hot OR let it sit near my gas fireplace).
  • While you are waiting for your dough to rise, this is a great time to shred your mozzarella and parmesan.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, pre-heat your oven to 425*F.
  • Dump the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and separate the dough into the amount you want to use and be sure to store the rest (as I mentioned above).
  • Roll the piece of dough between two pieces of parchment paper into a thin large oval or rectangular shape.
  • Brush or rub the dough with your garlic butter.
  • Sprinkle your shredded mozzarella and parmesan along with the basil over the top and place in the oven to bake.
  • Bake the keto cheese breadsticks at 425* F for ~15-20 min or until the crust is quite crisp and the cheese, bubbly and brown.
  • Slice into strips and serve warm with a side of garlic dip or marinara sauce. Enjoy The Best Keto Cheesy Bread!
