Keto Chicken Pesto Christmas Tree Bread
I have to admit that in my quest for keto pull apart bread recipes, I have definitely missed the convenience of being able to just buy premade bread or dough to use as a starting point like I did pre-keto. However, it was hard to be disappointed after pulling this out of the oven! It’s a tiny bit tricky to make and shape the dough yourself, but the end result is so worth it! Who can complain about a golden brown Christmas tree filling with cheesy, basil-y deliciousness?
This keto Christmas tree bread is a good, satisfying accompaniment to your favorite winter soups, although it also makes a surprisingly filling lunch on its own as well. If you feel like sharing, I’ve also found that the tree shape and flavor makes it a pretty popular party food among keto-ers and carb eaters alike.
- In addition to the garlic butter, I usually top this with some extra parmesan and chopped fresh basil right out of the oven.
- Don’t worry too much about making the dough twists perfect; the way it rises in the oven will smooth out most imperfections.
- If using store bought pesto, be sure to check the carb count! I’ve seen some with inexplicably high carb counts from adding unnecessary sugars and starches.
- This keto pull apart bread doesn’t have to be limited to the holiday season! Follow the shaping guide for my keto spinach dip stuffed bread recipe to make a round version instead (or just stick with the tree shape anyway, because it looks cool!)
