These Delicious Homemade Gluten Free & Keto Garlic Butter Croutons are Made with Easy to make Fathead dough that’s Drenched in Garlic Butter, then Slowly Baked to Perfection. They add the perfect Tasty Crunch to a Low Carb Salad or Soup.
How Do You Make Keto Garlic Butter Croutons?
To make these Tasty Keto Garlic Butter Croutons, you start by melting the shredded mozzarella and the cream cheese in a frying pan over medium heat. Remove from the heat, then stir the melted cheeses until they’re well combined.
Using a mixing bowl, add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and eggs to the cheese mixture. Mix until very well combined. Then, between 2 pieces of parchment paper press the dough into a rectangle. Remove the top piece of parchment paper, then brush with 2 tbsp of the melted butter. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of garlic powder. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven, then cut into 1/4 ” squares. Over medium heat, melt the remaining butter in a large frying pan. Add the remaining garlic powder to the melted butter, then place the bread squares into the pan. Stir until all the pieces are well coated with butter. Brown for approximately 5 minutes, stirring as it cooks.
Spread a fresh piece of parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet. Then spread the croutons evenly on the pan. Leave as much space between them as possible. Bake for 16 – 18 minutes, or until the croutons are golden brown and crunchy.
WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
Keto Garlic Butter Croutons
This easy Keto Garlic Butter Crouton Recipe can be whipped up in under 30 minutes. Croutons have always been my favourite part of Caesar Salad. I’ve gone years without them and I’ve missed their delicious crunchiness… So I decided to make some with fathead dough. I’m glad I did because they’ve turned out perfect every time and I haven’t had a salad without since.

– Store on the counter uncovered for 1 – 2 days, then they can be stored in a container or zip lock bag for up to 1 week after that.
– Melting the shredded mozzarella and the cream cheese in a microwave depends on how powerful you microwave is. My rule of thumb is to melt the cheese in increments of 30 seconds and stir. I did 2 30 seconds and an extra 15.
– When making the fathead dough it feels like it’s going to be too wet at first but if you keep mixing it, it thickens. It’s important for it to be mix very well.
– You can add some extra flavour to the croutons by mixing in a little basil, rosemary, oregano or parsley with the garlic powder.
