Keeping it short and sweet today because Christmas is almost here and I am swamped. As are all of you, I am sure. It’s a wonderful but nutty time of year. It’s supposed to be about love and family and giving and community, and it is all of that, of course. But as you get older, you are juggling kids and jobs and myriad other responsibilities, and it can often feel like a bit of a sprint to the finish. You don’t really relax and enjoy the holiday spirit until maybe the day before, if you’re lucky. Sometimes not until the day of. But I find, no matter how hectic my holiday lead-up is, I always enjoy the actual day. It’s by far my favourite holiday, and there’s nothing quite like it.
But perhaps I should say I am keeping this post short and savoury, not short and sweet. I had the sense that readers were feeling a little burnt out on the holiday cookie recipes and other sweets. I get it, I really do.
Every year, I get going on my holiday recipes a little earlier to try to get ahead of the curve. And then I end up with a whole lot of low carb holiday recipes that I lob at you, my readers, one after the other in quick succession. It’s bound to lead to a little holiday goodie weariness. I am feeling a touch of that myself. So as I got ready to post yet another sweet treat that would just get lost in the huge holiday shuffle of sweet treats, I paused.
I decided to ask my Facebook fans what they would rather see: Sweet (low carb Pecan Toffee Bars) or Savoury (these low carb, grain-free Parmesan Garlic Knots). The answer wasn’t entirely unanimous but it was about 80/20 in favour of these low carb rolls.
Garlic Parmesan Knots and Dough Ideas
So here they are, yet another fun riff on the keto mozzarella dough, this time turned into little mini rolls you can dunk into your favourite soup or stew. They are also wonderful just eaten on their own as a little keto snack. Slathered in melted butter, garlic, and parmesan, how could you possible go wrong with these little low carb rolls?
Answer is, you really can’t go wrong. Especially with the unbaked dough. You can use it to make Brenda’s fathead pizza rolls or to transform Aubrey’s ham and cheese calzone recipe into a low carb version.
And just to give you a little soup inspiration, here are the best low carb soup recipes of 2015.

- 3 tbsp butter melted
- 2 tbsp freshly grated parmesan
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 3/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. In a large saucepan, melt cheese over low heat until it's melted and can be stirred together.
Add butter, egg, and stir to combine. Stir in almond flour mixture until dough comes together (keep heat on low). It will still have some large streaks of cheese. Turn out dough onto a parchment-lined surface and kneed until uniform (this only takes a little kneading).
Divide dough into 16 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 7-inch log and tie gently into a knot. Place on prepared baking sheet a few inches apart (they will spread a bit).
In a small bowl, whisk together butter, parmesan, garlic, salt, and parsley. Brush about half of the butter over knots before baking. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until firm to the touch and golden brown.
Remove and brush with remaining garlic butter. Serve warm.
