Ready to bake? Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (full-fat is best!)
  • 2 tablespoons milk of your choice (unsweetened almond milk works great)
  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour (not almond meal!)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • Melted butter (optional)
  • Minced garlic (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan, melt the mozzarella cheese with milk until smooth.
  3. Transfer the cheese mixture to a large bowl and let it cool slightly (about 2 minutes).
  4. Stir in the almond flour, eggs, and baking powder until you have a soft dough.
  5. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape them into rough circles.
  6. Place the naan on your prepared baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up.
  7. Let cool for 10 minutes, then brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic (if desired).

Tips for keto naan perfection:

  • Use cool dough when mixing in the eggs and almond flour. Hot dough will cook prematurely, preventing the naan from rising properly.
  • For extra fluffiness, form the dough into balls instead of flattening them. They’ll bake the same but have a lighter texture inside.
  • Get creative with toppings! Try herbs, spices, or even a sprinkle of Everything Bagel Seasoning.
  • Leftover naan can be stored in the fridge for up to a week or frozen for up to 2 months.

 

This keto naan recipe is a game-changer for low-carb Indian food lovers! So ditch the guilt and indulge in the warm, comforting flavor of naan, keto-style.

  • cups of almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
