Soft breadsticks that are made with whole grains and without yeast or sugar - Delicious when dipped into marinara sauce and/or topped with cheese.
My first job was at a children's playland where I hosted birthday parties.
Half of the building was devoted to slides, colorful plastic balls, and jumping castles, while the other half was where all the eating happened.
In addition to cake and ice cream, the families were treated to pizza of their choice from the one and only Pizza Hut! Given my proximity to the fine food offerings, I often partook of the greasy fare, which included cheesy breadsticks!
I would actually go into the back kitchen and make them myself. The dough was pre-made, so I would just top them with cheeeeeese...lots and lots of cheese!
I had those not-so-figure-friendly snacks in mind with this recipe, but in contrast, these babies are made with whole grain flour. They're also free of yeast, sugar, oil, and other preservative nasties.
This makes a quick batch of six that would go very well with soup or salad for two!
No Yeast Breadsticks
- ½ cup + 2 Tbsp spelt flour
- ¾ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ⅓ cup milk of your choice
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- Stir in the milk.
- Gather all the dough together and knead it until it is a smooth ball.
- Cover the dough ball with your mixing bowl for 10 minutes.
- Roll the dough out into a 5 x 3 inch rectangle (1/2 inch thick).
- Cut the rectangle into six equal-sized sticks and place in a well-greased 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
- Brush the tops with a bit of olive oil or melted butter and top with a sprinkle of parmesan or sesame seeds, if desired.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden.
I like to use my Homemade Coconut Milk in this recipe for myself and 2% milk for my husband.
We like to dip these in my Homemade Pizza Sauce!
If you'd like to add cheese, I recommend baking the dough alone for 10 minutes then adding the cheese. Bake it for another 3-5 minutes until cheese is melty and bubbly.
These are some of the items I use to make this recipe including my FAVORITE spelt flour:
