Servings 6 servings


  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsps. cream cheese at room temperature
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 whole egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a microwave safe bowl add mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave it for a minute until the cheese is completely melted.
  • To the melted cheese mixture add egg, baking powder, garlic powder, Italian seasonings, ground pepper and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Transfer the cheese mixture dough to a parchment paper and place another parchment paper over it and roll the dough to an oval shape to ½ inch thick. Discard the top parchment paper.
  • Transfer the rolled cheese mixture along with the bottom parchment paper to the baking sheet. Set aside.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add butter and melt for 30 seconds. To the same bowl add garlic and parsley. Brush the garlic butter mixture over the oval shaped dough.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden on top. Remove the baked bread from the oven and place it in a cooling rack.
  • Once it's cooled down, cut into breadsticks using a pizza cutter.
  • Serve the garlic bread with marinara sauce on the side.


  • Freshly shredded cheese is preferred because store-bought shredded cheese has an anti-clumping coating on them so they don’t melt as easily.
  • Work quickly with the dough. As the melted cheese in the dough starts to cool, the dough will harden, making it difficult to mix, knead, and shape.
  • Make sure to mix the dough until everything is incorporated evenly. 
  • Bringing the eggs to room temperature will help them incorporate into the dough easier.
  • If you’re not a fan of parsley, you can use oregano!
  • If you’re not a fan of mozzarella, feel free to swap with any type of shredded cheese. Cheddar is a great alternative.
