Gluten Free Garlic Knots

What are garlic knots made of?

The knots themselves are made from a simple dough of GF flour, yeast, honey, xantham gum and psyllium powder (for stretchiness), garlic powder, baking powder, and olive oil. But the amazing flavor is from a slathering of melted butter with garlic, parmesan, and parsley.

Make the Dough

Whisk the dry ingredients, then stream in the water and olive oil to form a shaggy dough.

Knead and Rise

Knead the dough for 5 minutes and form a ball. Let rise for about an hour.

Portion it Out

When the dough has doubled in size, turn it out and divide it into 12 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a rope 8-9 inches long.

Form the Knots

Tie each rope into a knot, and place them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Rise a Second Time

Cover the knots with plastic wrap and leave them to rise for another 20 minutes.

Brush and Bake

Brush the tops with melted butter. Bake them at 425ºF for about 18 minutes.

Make the Garlic Butter

While the knots are baking, melt butter with oil and add garlic. Warm till fragrant.

Coat the Knots

Pour melted garlic butter over the baked knots in a bowl, then sprinkle on parmesan, parsley, and salt. Toss to coat.

Serve and Enjoy

Dunk your garlic knots in marinara or your favorite dipping sauce, with soups or stews for dunking, or alongside your favorite pasta dishes.
