If you're serving up an Italian-themed dinner, then our Easy Garlic Knots are the perfect side! The best part? They're even low-carb! Our Easy Garlic Knots have that delicious garlicky flavor that is an Italian staple. Dip them in the sauce, or eat them on their own. No matter how you decide to eat this delicious side, one thing is for certain: You won't be able to resist! 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 6 tablespoons margarine, melted, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine both flours, garlic powder, baking powder, and salt; mix well and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt cheese, stirring constantly. Add 4 tablespoons margarine and the egg and stir until combined. Stir in flour mixture until dough comes together.
  4. Place dough on a flat surface and knead 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly mixed. Divide dough into 14 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 7-inch rope. Place on a baking sheet and form each into a knot.
  5. In a small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons margarine, the fresh garlic, and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Brush margarine mixture over dough knots.
  6. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until firm and golden brown.

Could you use ALL wholewheat flour

Hi there! Yes, you can use whole-wheat flour in place of the almond flour. :) Enjoy!

I would love to try this recipe, but we cannot use almond flour since my daughter is allergic. Is there something else we can substitute for the almond flour in this case? I would like to try this because we all love garlic knots, pretzels, and bread style recipes in this house.

Hi there! The almond flour in this recipe can be substituted for all-purpose flour, however keep in mind that changing the ingredients will alter the provided Nutritional Information and may make this recipe no longer diabetic-friendly. Enjoy!

Finally! A bread/pretzel I can have! I have almond flour in the freezer that I bought and haven't know what to make with it, but now I will make these knots! I will use a bolder reg parm/romano/asiago cheese that I grate myself.

I always thought garlic knots would be off the menu for me, but I never thought I would find a recipe for them using almond and wheat flour. I am so going to try these for dinner tonight. Friday night is spaghetti and meatball night in my house. I cannot wait to try these with my meatballs.
