How To Make Keto Focaccia
Step 1: Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: While the oven is warming up, combine the butter, crushed garlic, and herbs, then set aside.
Step 3: Prepare a baking tray by greasing it.
Step 4: Melt the cheese in the microwave by heating for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until it has melted. Then add in the flour, eggs, salt, and baking powder to the cheese.
Step 5: Either dump the cheese and flour mixture onto wax paper and knead it, or place the ingredients in the food processor. Mix together well, then form into a large rectangle on your baking sheet or baking stone.
TIP: Keeping your hands wet will make the dough easier to work with when you are trying to shape.
Step 6: Every inch or two, poke a hole with your finger. Then top with garlic butter and salt. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes. It will be golden brown when it's done.

How Do You Store Easy Keto Bread?
Always store any leftover easy keto garlic bread in the refrigerator. It needs to be kept in an airtight container for best results. Keep in mind that the keto garlic bread tastes at it's best after it's first baked. It still tastes great leftover, but won't be precisely what it was when you first tried it. The cheesy keto bread will last 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator.
How Do I Reheat Low Carb Garlic Bread?
The best way to reheat the keto focaccia bread is by warming it up in the oven. Warm the oven to 350 degrees F. and place it on a baking sheet for 10 or 15 minutes until it's hot. Another option is to microwave it. Just don't heat it too fast in the microwave, or it will end up dry and not as appealing. I would recommend warming it at 50% power in the microwave. Just a few seconds at a time, then check. It will warm up pretty fast, so you don't want to overheat it.
Can I Freeze Keto Bread?
Yes, you can freeze this keto garlic bread. Flash freeze it on a baking sheet, then place in freezer-bags or another airtight container. The garlic bread will last around 1-2 months in the freezer.
To serve, you will need to place in the refrigerator overnight so it can thaw out. Once it's thawed, you can heat it up and serve.
Herb Butter Topping:
- 2 tbsp butter softened
- 1 clove garlic crushed (I press through a garlic press)
- 1 tsp herbes de provence (or any combination of dried herbs)
- pinch sea salt
- Preheat oven to 400. Combine butter, crushed garlic, and herbs. Set Aside. Grease a small baking tray or baking stone with olive oil.
- Put cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave one minute. Stir. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. At this point all the cheese should be melted. Microwave 3o more seconds until uniform and gloopy (it should look like cheese fondue at this point). Mix in the egg, flours, baking powder, and salt. You will need to dump it onto wax paper and knead it by hand to thoroughly incorporate the ingredients or you can do this in a food processor with the dough blade.
- Press into a big rectangle on the baking stone (it helps to wet your hands). Poke holes with your finger every inch or two. Spread on the herb butter. Sprinkle a little sea salt on the focaccia and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
