Gluten-Free Garlic Breadsticks Recipe


There’s a certain restaurant chain out there that became quite well known for its unlimited salad and breadsticks deal. And while that deal might be over now, breadsticks are still one of the yummiest parts of an Italian meal.

While unlimited breadsticks might not be the cornerstone of a nutritious diet, you can enjoy them in a healthy way. My Garlic Breadsticks recipe is the perfect appetizer or accompaniment to any meal.

These garlic breadsticks are so easy to make you won’t believe you haven’t tried before. With just a handful of ingredients like coconut oil, garlic cloves and gluten-free flour, you can whip it up at a moment’s notice. Try these at your next dinner.

Garlic breadsticks recipe step 1 - Dr. Axe

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Then, in a saucepan, bring the coconut oil, water and salt to a boil. Once the ingredients are boiling, remove the pan from heat and and stir in the garlic and gluten-free flour. Mix it all up and let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

Slowly add in the coconut flour and knead the dough. Once you’ve worked it all up, place the garlic breadsticks on the parchment-lined baking sheet and slide in the oven. Let the dough bake for the next 30–50 minutes, or until the breadsticks are golden brown.

Once the garlic breadsticks are ready, slice them into long sticks and enjoy! (You can choose to dip them in some homemade pasta sauce.) Be sure to make an extra batch — these won’t last long in the bread basket!
