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.
