Garlic Parmesan Keto Pretzels ?

There is just something so satisfying about biting in to a soft, warm, chewy pretzel. I think that is why you guys have loved our Keto Cinnamon Pretzels so much! These pretzels have all of the awesomeness of a traditional pretzel, just without the carbs! ?

The flavor of these almost reminds me of a garlic knot, but the texture and feel is just like a yummy pretzel! It might sound strange, but we found these pretzels to be even more delicious when dipped in some marinara sauce! Some cheese dipping sauce would be just as yummy, too!

Easiest Keto Bread: Fat Head Dough

Fat head dough is a super versatile dough that is made using mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, eggs, and almond flour. Fat head dough is well known in the keto community and you can make almost any traditionally carb-y food using this dough: bagels, pizza, bread, and much more! ?

You can make both sweet and savory breads using this recipe! Making this dough is as easy as microwaving the mozzarella and cream cheese, and mixing in the egg and almond flour until you have a nice doughy consistency.

How To Make These Garlic Parmesan Keto Preztels

  1. Create your seasoning mixture by combining garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and seasoning. 
  2. In the microwave, melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese until a thick mixture is created.
  3. Add in almond flour and egg and knead until a dough is formed.
  4. Roll sections of the dough into long sections (think play-doh “snakes” from kindergarten) and shape into pretzels. Then, brush the pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle with seasoning mixture and bake.

Keto Pretzel Seasonings

As I mentioned earlier, these pretzels taste very similar to garlic knots that you might buy at a pizzeria. They are garlicy (obviously), and have the same flavor. That is because these pretzels are topped with almost the same seasons as a garlic knot. These keto pretzels are savory and herby! ??

For these pretzels, we added the butter and seasoning before baking, and then also basted a little more butter on these after they came out of the oven. This helped to keep them moist and flavorful! However, it is totally up to you to decide when you want to season these pretzels; seasoning can be added before or after baking (or both). You can also choose to just salt your pretzels and dip them in this delicious Keto Cheese Sauce!

Soft and Buttery Keto Pretzels ?

These are super buttery and flavorful on their own, so you might not need to compliment these pretzels with any dipping sauces. But, if you decide that you want to dip these in something, we highly recommend Rao’s marinara sauce. It is super low in carbs and sugar and it is delicious! Its super flavorful and compliments these pretzels perfectly! Another option would be to dip these pretzels in a cheese sauce. You can pick up a low carb low sugar cheese dip at your local grocery store, or you can make your own! The cheese sauce from our Keto Mac and Cheese would be a perfect dipping sauce for these pretzels!

    How do you store these? In refrigerator? Thanks!

    • Kasey

      You can store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or on the counter for 3 to 4 days. Enjoy!

    These turn out so yummy… only problem is they expand massively while cooking and don’t end up looking like pretzels. Any advice?

    • Kasey

      I am not sure why it spread. Is it possible that the ingredients did not completely incorporate? Trying stirring a little longer next time.
