Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed for gluten free garlic bread recipe.

Almond flour. The high protein content and fine texture of this gluten free flour makes it perfect for baked goods.

Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. I prefer to grate the cheese from blocks myself for best taste and consistency. Feel free to swap these out for other Italian cheese such as Romano.

Eggs. These help the gluten free garlic bread stay together. Beat and let the eggs come to room temperature before adding them to the dough.

Garlic. You’ll need two cloves of garlic, peeled and minced finely, to make your garlic bread complete.

Olive oil. Completely optional, but it’s delicious when served with the garlic bread for dipping!

Melt the cheese.

Make the dough.

Mix the melted mozzarella with almond flour. Fold in the beaten eggs. Stir in garlic powder, salt and baking powder.

Bake

Use your hands to shape the dough into a loaf form. Place it on a greased baking tray. Bake for 5 minutes.

Add toppings.

Sprinkle the remaining cheeses and minced garlic. Bake for 15 more minutes. The mozzarella should be browned and bubbly when the bread is ready to remove.

Garnish.

Sprinkle parsley over the slightly cooled gluten free garlic bread before serving.
