  • 60 g (1/2 stick) melted butter
  • 210 ml (1 cup) warm water
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Garlic Butter (if you can eat garlic)

  • 70 g (5 tabelspoons) butter
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Toppings (after baking)

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)


To Make the Garlic Knots

  • In a medium bowl add the flour, salt, and sugar and whisk to combine well. Add the yeast and whisk one more time. Add the yogurt, melted butter and water, and either with your hands or with a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix on medium speed for about 3 minutes. The dough should be a little bit sticky
  • Shape the dough into an 16×5 inch log. (5-inch width really isn’t as important as the 16 inch length here, no need to be exact.) Using a very sharp knife, pizza cutter, or bench scraper, slice into 16 1-inch strips. Roll each strip into 8-inch ropes. Tie each into knots. You can tuck the two ends of the knots underneath the knot or leave them out. Cover the shaped knots and let them rise for about 40 min. Like most gluten-free baked goods these garlic knots need only 1 rise.

To Make the garlic Butter

  • Option 1: If you can't eat garlic (Low FODMAP Version)
    Chop 5 garlic cloves into bigger pieces. Add them to a pan with butter and place them over very low heat. Cook until the butter is just melted but hasn't started to brown yet. Take it off the heat strain the garlic bits, then add garlic-infused olive oil, & Italian seasoning.
  • Option 2: If you can eat garlic
    Mince 3 garlic cloves and mix them with melted butter and Italian seasoning.
  • Once the knots have risen, brush them with the garlic butter (but reserve half of the butter or when the knots come out of the oven.) 
  • Bake for about 20-23 minutes or until golden brown on top. 
  • Remove from the oven and brush the warm knots with remaining garlic butter. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and/or parsley, if using.
