This garlic keto bread is the perfect party appetiser suitable for those following a healthy ketogenic approach. It's diet-friendly and won't spike your blood sugar.

Both baguettes and compound butter can be prepared in advance and crisped up in less than 15 minutes. If you can't eat dairy, skip the cheese topping, swap the sourdough keto baguettes with Ultimate Keto Buns and use lard or duck fat to make the compound butter.

Ingredients (makes 16 servings)

Garlic & Herb Compound Butter:
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter (113 g/ 4 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I like pink Himalayan salt)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (30 ml)
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley or 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (45 g/ 1.6 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • Optional: drizzle with extra virgin olive oil
Alternative options:

Mote: Garlic bread is best when prepared fresh. You can halve the recipe by freezing the remaining baguettes and compound butter for future use. Both freeze well.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
