Cheese is a popular ingredient on a keto diet, so it’s no surprise that many keto bread recipes rely on cheese. The cheese helps to add in extra moisture and flavor to the bread. It also makes sure that there is no frustrating eggy flavor. Many keto cheese bread recipes are also very low in carbs, such as containing just 1.5 grams of net carbs per serving.
Another powerful advantage is the sheer number of options. There are many different low carb cheese bread styles and recipes to choose from. Some of them just use a single type of cheese as the main ingredient. Others might rely on multiple types of cheese or focus heavily on the flavors that the cheese offers.

Cheese And Bacon Bread Rolls
These cheese and bacon rolls come from myketokitchen.com and they’d be perfect for many situations. Gerri suggests that you could use them as hamburger buns or serve them with a fried egg on top. You could even play around with the sizing, using a different sized tray to create small snack-sized bites. Regardless of the size or how you serve them, it’s easy to see that these rolls will be popular.
Pull Apart Clover Rolls
These rolls don’t feature cheese as heavily as some of the other recipes. Instead, they have a more subtle cheesy flavor, which works better in some situations. I particularly like the pull apart nature of the rolls. The ability to easily split each roll into three would make the rolls fun to eat. Each of the finished rolls contains four net grams of carbs. The recipe comes from beautyandthefoodie.com.
Grain Free Cheesy Cornbread
This recipe is perfect for anyone who misses cornbread while they’re on a keto diet. After all, cornbread is normally high in carbs. Brenda from sugarfreemom.com gets around that problem by avoiding cornmeal and replicating the flavor using other ingredients. While the recipe relies on coconut milk, you can change this up for any other type of milk, like almond milk or cow’s milk.
Cheddar Garlic Fathead Rolls
These dinner rolls from alldayidreamaboutfood.com are a fantastic type of cheese bread to try. With this recipe, Carolyn shows that you don’t need to rely on mozzarella when making fathead dough. Other types of cheese work well too, while changing the flavor of the finished recipe. I love the way that you’re making enough rolls for a family all in one go.
Very Low Carb Cheese Bread
This recipe comes from Georgina at stepawayfromthecarbs.com. You’re making small pieces of bread, which just contain one net gram of carbs per serving. A serving is a quarter of the finished recipe. It’s easy to see how the bread would make good finger food at a party, especially when combined with a low carb dip.

The ingredients chosen means that the sweet rolls don’t just mimic the texture of regular Hawaiian sweet rolls. They have the desired flavor as well.
I love the appearance of these cheesy breadsticks. Honestly, wouldn’t they just be an amazing choice for party food or as an after work snack? The recipe comes from kaseytrenum.com, so you can be certain that it is high-quality and easy to follow. You’re making eight servings of the breadsticks at a time. Each serving contains an impressive 17 grams of protein, along with just three net grams of carbs.
Four Ingredient Jalapeno Cheese Bread
If you want bread with a flavor kick, check out this recipe from sweetcsdesigns.com. One great thing is that Courtney provides details about multiple textures that you can make. For example, you can make the cheese bread soft and use it as a wrap. You can also create a crispy crust, making the bread seem more artisan in nature.
Almond Flour Free FatHead Rolls
These rolls from sugarfreemom.com are another cheese bread style to try. The recipe uses the fathead dough idea, without including any almond flour. Coconut flour is used instead, along with the other ingredients that you might expect. The finished rolls contain four net grams of carbs each. Of course, this depends on how large you make them. Larger rolls will have more carbs, while smaller ones will have less.
Broccoli Cheddar Bread
This loaf of bread is a different style to try out. It comes from the site joyfilledeats.com and is surprisingly easy to prepare. One reason is that the recipe only contains five ingredients. The prep only takes around five minutes, which helps too. The style means that you’d normally be eating the bread warm. Thankfully, it reheats easily. Don’t worry if you’re not a broccoli fan, this could be substituted out for another ingredient (like bacon crumbles).
Keto Bread Recipes – Four Ways
Here’s a bread recipe from cookinglsl.com. It’s a little unusual, as there are four different versions that you can try. The basic recipe is simply for keto bread and doesn’t use any cheese at all. However, one of the variations is for making cheese bread, while another is for spinach and feta bread. Both styles are great uses of cheese. The small size of the finished bread makes the recipe perfect for many situations.
Cheesy Garlic Bread
This bread is the next step up from garlic bread and simply looks amazing. It isn’t just a tasty recipe either. The bread is also very low in carbs, with only 1.5 net grams of carbs in each slice. As written, the recipe relies on either almond meal or almond flour. Libby (from ditchthecarbs.com) does also provide the measurements for making the recipe with coconut flour instead.
Three Ingredient Flourless Cheese Breadsticks
These cheese breadsticks are simple, tasty and well worth the effort. The recipe comes from kirbiecravings.com and only requires three ingredients. You’re actually making something that is very similar to a thin pizza crust. Kirbie mentions that despite the ingredients, the breadsticks don’t just feel like a bunch of cheese. Instead, they have a soft and chewy texture.
This recipe comes from the site craftymorning.com. It follows a similar style to the previous example, including the general idea of cheese breadsticks. I love the way the recipe includes two different types of cheese. This would make the bread more interesting again. You can even change the amount of parmesan cheese based on how much you love cheese.
Garlic Cheese Bread

Zucchini Bread – Low Carb ‘Bacon & Cheese’ Loaf
Here’s a less common style – from the site myketokitchen.com. The bread takes advantage of zucchini, which offers extra nutrition and moisture.

The end result is cheesy bread that has a different flavor and texture than most other options.

You probably couldn’t put the bread in the toaster either. Still, it’s a fantastic recipe and a great alternative to regular bread.
Keto Cheesy Garlic Bread
While we’ve featured a few breadstick recipes on this list already, this recipe is different. You’re making cheesy garlic breadsticks, which is so much better.

Herbed Cheesy Bread

It’s an easy recipe to prepare, as it just relies on a handful of different ingredients. You can use any type of shredded cheese in the recipe, so choose whatever you like.
Cheesy Zucchini Breadsticks
The notable difference with these breadsticks is the use of zucchini. We’re not talking about a little zucchini either – the vegetable is one of the main ingredients. This isn’t a bad thing. There are many different zucchini bread recipes out there and they’re often popular. Adding cheese is simply going to make the bread more enjoyable. All of the details for this recipe can be found at ketovale.com.

Cheddar Tamed Jalapeno Bread
This last cheese bread recipe comes from the site totemptation.com. The name comes from the use of Tamed Jalapeno Slices, which are milder than regular jalapenos. As Meagan mentions, you could easily use hot jalapenos instead, if you enjoy more heat. The bread is easy to make and each serving has 3.5 net grams of carbs.
