Prep Time: 45 minutes to prep Keto bread
Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:
Keto Bread:
½ cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
6 large eggs
1 1/3 cup almond flour
2/3 cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
Ricotta:
1 whole head of garlic
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 cup of full-fat ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Zest from ½ fresh lemon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Tomatoes & Shallot Mix:
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 shallot, peeled & sliced
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Garnish:
Fresh basil, minced

Instructions:

To make your Keto Bread, pulse all bread ingredients in a food processor until well-combined. Spray a small bread pan with avocado oil and fill the pan up with the bread batter, patting with your fingers to ensure that the loaf settles into the pan evenly.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes or until the top is a golden color and a toothpick comes out clean after piercing the loaf.

When cool enough, flip the bread pan upside down and carefully allow the bread to cool before slicing into 8 pieces.

Prepare your roasted garlic and cherry tomatoes while the bread is baking.

Divide garlic head into individual cloves and place on a sheet of foil and drizzle with avocado oil. Wrap up the cloves in a tight pocket and bake in the oven until the garlic is soft, but not burnt, about 40 minutes, checking after 30 minutes.

Arrange cherry tomatoes and shallots on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and drizzle with avocado oil and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Bake in the oven, right with the bread and the garlic, until blistered and soft, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

When the garlic cloves are ready, remove from the oven and when cool, remove their peels and place the soft and roasted garlic in a food processor with the remaining ricotta ingredients (ricotta, sea salt, black pepper, lemon zest and ground nutmeg). Pulse until very creamy.

Toast your bread slices and then smother with roasted garlic ricotta and top with cherry tomatoes and shallots, garnishing with freshly minced basil.

Serve immediately, storing any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Enjoy!
