What’s In These Garlic Knots with Wheat Flour?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Whole Wheat Flour: I used a combination of whole wheat flour and all purpose to make these knots light and fluffy.  You can use all whole wheat flour, but the texture will be denser and it won’t rise as much – that’s why I found the combination of the two flours does the trick perfectly!
  • Garlic
  • Instant Yeast: I recently tried out this instant yeast  and I absolutely love it!  Instant yeast is great for both overnight breads and this easy quick garlic knots recipe too!
  • Fine Sea Salt:  I like a fine ground sea salt for baking.  
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder: Also a major pantry staple ingredient that gets used in our house daily! I love this garlic powder and add it to a lot of recipes that I would use fresh garlic in too.
  • Parsley & Chili Flakes to top (for a little red & green holiday color!)

How Do I Make Whole Wheat Garlic Bread Knots?

  1. Add the warm water, instant yeast, and maple syrup to a large mixing bowl. Stir and allow to sit for 5 minutes until the yeast begins to bloom/foam in the water.  Add the garlic powder, salt, and stir in the flour 1 cup at a time, starting with the One Degree Organics Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour. Mix the dough until it is well combined.
  2. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, adding more flour if the dough is too sticky. Place the kneaded dough back into the bowl. Pour 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over the dough, and flip the dough to make sure it’s coated in the olive oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Divide the dough in half, and each of the halves into 8 pieces. This recipe makes 16 knots. Take the dough for one knot, and roll it into a 9 or 10 inch strip with your palms. Take the two ends of the dough: make a loop with one end, and feed the other end through the loop to make a knot. Like you’re completing the first step of tying your shoes (see embedded video for a quick how-to!). Place the knot on the baking sheet, and repeat until all the knots are tied.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the oven, and bake for 18-24 minutes until the garlic knots are golden brown on top.  Remove from oven.
  6. Brush each garlic knot with olive oil and chopped garlic, and top with chopped parsley and chili flakes. Serve with a warm marinara dipping sauce, enjoy!
