I get stopped sometimes, just by walking around the bakery. That smell of fresh-baked bread gets me every time. But this lasts for about a second. Until I realize, what it is made from and why my family and I have changed.
The health benefits of the ways we eat are not comparable and there is no way I would ever go back to ordinary eating habits. And therefore I always make sure we have a replacement for healthy alternatives in our house. I have so far managed to make a perfect Keto Farmers Bread, which is really unrecognizable from a normal loaf. I have made various Keto Snacks, just in case we do need to nib on something crunchy and special. And also have already a bit collection of Keto

Fathead Dough With Coconut Flour
But I have never tried to make a Fathead Dough with a coconut Flour.
Reason? Not so sure. I hardly use coconut flour. My guess is, that because at the beginning of our journey, I have made few recipes with coconut flour, which were not the best. That made me stop using coconut flour almost entirely.
When I started experimenting with a Fathead Dough, I simply turn to using only almond flour.

Tools to make Fathead Breadsticks
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON MAKING THE BEST KETO ITALIAN BREADSTIC
First Step: Prepare all ingredients
Prepare all of the ingredients needed for making the best Keto Fathead Breadsticks. I like to always segregate all into small glass jars, but you can just combine dry and wet ingredients into 2 separate glass containers as well.
Second Step: Mozzarella
Shred mozzarella and place it into the nonstick pot. Heat it up and while mixing it slowly with a spatula, make sure all of the mozzarella
Be sure to use the prepackaged mozzarella cheese in this recipe. Fresh mozzarella contains too much water and your breadsticks won’t turn out as they should.
Third Step: Cream Cheese and Butter
Once your mozzarella is fully melted, add butter and cream cheese and combine together while still hot.
In this step I switch off the heater and keep mixing it fully until I am satisfied with the dough.
If you still feel, the mozzarella is not fully melted or combined, switch the heat again at a low temperature and keep mixing.
Fourth Step: Other Ingredients
Switch of the heat and slowly one by one add all of the other ingredients. Keep mixing best with a plastic spatula and make sure all of the ingredients are fully combined into one dough.
Fifth Step: Eggs
At this stage, the fathead dough should be a bit cooler and it is the time to add all of the eggs. You can mix them into fluffiness beforehand if you wish, but this is also not really necessary. I have just added them straight into the dough and kept mixing until fully combined.
This might take a few minutes but it is so worth to be patient. Better your fathead dough is mixed, easier it will be for you to roll the Keto Breadsticks.
Sixth Step: Shape and form
Once all is combined, separate the fathead dough into 8 pieces. Take each piece and with your hand roll it into small buns. In this step, you can still work each of the buns into a more smooth consistency for you to be able to roll the breadstic
In the meantime, heat up the oven and prepare your baking sheet covered with either a parchment paper or a silicone sheet.
Once all prepared, roll each of the bun into a log and place it onto a baking sheet.
Seventh Step: Season
When all of the Fathead dough is rolled into 8 logs, season it with extra Italian herbs and corse salt.
Bake and enjoy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can you replace coconut four in Fathead dough
Yes, you can. The best replacement here will be with almond flour but you have to make sure you add much more. Coconut flour is very absorbent and dry and therefore you really need very little of it.
On the other side, if you are going to use alm
Can you make the fathead
dough and freeze it until use ?
I would recommend cooking it and then freezing rather than freezing the uncooked dough.
Any dough, where cheese or cream cheese is involved, changes the consistency and you might have to have a really difficult time to shape it once unfrozen.
Bake the Keto Fathead Breadsticks and freeze those. It is much more convenient for you later as all you have to do is heat it up and enjoy.
Do leftovers Keto Italian Breadsticks need to be refrigerated
Yes, they are heavy in dairy so store them in an airtight container in the fridge
Do these freeze well ?
They do if you store them fully covered. Once you take them out of the freezer, let them soften and reheat in the
