These Savory Cheddar Herb Keto Biscotti are crunchy, low carb, gluten Free and perfect with a bowl of keto soup or on a charcuterie platter! 

There’s just something about January, probably because it’s the coldest month of the year where I live, that makes me crave soup! Hearty, filling, satisfying, comfort- in- a- bowl, SOUP!

But wherever I have soup, I do love me some type of keto bread, keto breadstick, keto crouton, or keto roll, etc. One of the hardest things when I started out on a low carb lifestyle, was the giving up of bread and crunchy things like crackers with soup. Not anymore though, because this recipe for savory biscotti goes well with anything, especially keto soup like my Keto Cream of Chicken Soup!

Thankfully I’ve learned over the years that in order for a new, positive, and good-for-you habit to form, you’ve got to find alternatives to the things you once loved.

In order to make lasting changes I realized I needed to find low carb ways to enjoy the foods I have always loved, not just in the winter, but all year long.

I swap mashed potatoes for Mashed Cauliflower, and rice for Cauliflower rice, rolls for my Cheddar Cheesy Rolls!

Using Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour has been crucial in helping me create and develop recipes that are just as delicious as the traditional recipes I once enjoyed. It’s super fine texture makes it easy to bake and cook low carb. Today’s recipe is an example of just that.

This savory biscotti is perfectly crisp, just as a traditional style biscotti, only difference is that it’s savory instead of sweet. You could certainly change out the herbs I’ve used, add some sugar free sweetener to this and bake a sweet tasting biscotti, like my Chocolate Almond Biscotti.

But for me, since it’s cold and snowy and rainy most often in January, well, a savory biscotti is just what I needed to pair with some delicious soup, like my newest No Bean Chili!

As this month continues and you are working on some new changes, just remember that it takes time, consistently, to make healthy changes for the better. Finding delicious recipes that will keep you satisfied is one of the keys to making a sugar-free and low carb lifestyle work for the long haul, not just for the month of January.
