Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Rest Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon of soft butter for greasing the pan


  • 1 ¼ cups blanched, finely ground almond flour (5 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ cups shredded part-skim mozzarella (6 ounces)
  • 1 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten


  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a glass or ceramic 8-inch square baking dish generously with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, mix almond flour, Parmesan, baking soda, and garlic powder.
  3. Place shredded mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave for an additional 40 seconds until fully melted.
  4. Stir in the almond flour mixture and the beaten egg. Quickly knead the sticky dough with your hands, ensuring uniformity.
  5. Press the dough into the prepared baking dish. Bake until the bread is puffed and golden brown, approximately 20 minutes. Start checking after 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, combine melted butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley in a small bowl.
  7. Brush the hot bread with the butter mixture. Let it cool and firm up in the pan for about 5 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.


  • It’s recommended to measure almond flour by weight.
  • To avoid any potential reaction with baking soda, you can use 2 teaspoons of fresh gluten-free baking powder.
  • Use freshly minced garlic cloves for this recipe.
  • Adjust the number of slices based on your baking dish; the nutrition info assumes 10 slices.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Gently microwave at 50% power for about 10 seconds per slice when reheating.
