Cheesy Garlic Bread [Gluten free, Grain free, LCHF, Banting]

Garlic and cheese. In and on a loaf of bread. And the loaf happens to be gluten free and grain free. Well… don’t mind if I do!

So cheesy I know. But damn, this bread just takes it to another level. As I ever so gently ease dairy back into my life – and by gently I do mean diving head first into a pool of yoghurt and cheese – I had to try make a bread of some sort that was so moreish I’d never again lust after any other loaf. Enter – this cheesy garlic bread. It really is TO DIE FOR! Ok, so hyperbole is perhaps not the best use of language at this point but all I’m saying is – this is ******* GOOD! 

I used a combination of flours because it’s what I had, but you could substitute one for the other. And just FYI – you cannot taste the coconut flour in this recipe. I’d also really recommend using a stronger tasting cheese in the  bread mix, like Parmesan, but if you don’t have it, then just the mozzarella will do fine too. 

Recipe for Cheesy Garlic Bread

Yield: one small loaf 

Prep time: 5 minutes 

Cooking time: 50-60 minutes 

What you need

5 large eggs

1 cup Greek yoghurt

1/2 cup grated mozzarella or 1/4 cup grated Parmesan 

1/3 cup flaxmeal

1/4 cup coconut flour 

1/3 cup almond flour

1.5 tspns baking powder 

1 tspn garlic flakes/crushed garlic

Pinch of salt 

1 tspn lemon juice 

Optional: 1/2 tspn dried mixed herbs/origanum 

For the topping 

2/3 cup grated mozzarella 

1/2 tspn garlic flakes 

What you need to do

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

2. Using a fork, whisk eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add yogurt and cheese and combine well. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well, and pour batter into prepared loaf tin. 

3. Bake for approximately 35-45 minutes. Once the bread is almost cooked through, remove from oven.  

4. Add grated cheese and garlic on top, and place back into the oven to bake until cheese melts and forms a deliciously golden coating.  

5. Remove from oven and allow to cool in tin for 10 minutes. 

6. Remove from tin, and allow to cool for a further 10-15 minutes. You can then serve it warm or wait until completely cooled (good luck waiting!).

That’s it. Done. It is a quick recipe to throw together and it’s just FAB!

Enjoy 😉
