These gluten free bread sticks have a crispy crust, soft sweet doughy crumb, and a salty, buttery taste. And since they’re whipped up in your mixer, they are no trouble at all to throw together! Try them with your next salad or gluten free pasta dish – or all by their one-sy dipped in butter. Nom nom nom… This recipe is based on our earlier recipe for gluten and rice free buns. The dough for these is so pliable, you can shape it into almost anything! Hmmmmm … maybe pretzels next time??????

gluten free bread sticks
What you’ll need:
2 and 1/8 tsp instant rise yeast
1 cup and 1 Tablespoon warm water
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup potato flour
1/2 cup garbanzo flour
3/4 cup almond flour
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup oil OR melted butter or margarine
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup whey powder. The whey powder is for lift and browning but can be left out. The bread sticks will taste the same but may not be as fluffy.
What you’ll do:
Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
In small bowl, mix together warm water, 2 teaspoons sugar, and yeast. Set aside.
Put flours and xanthan gum in mixer bowl and combine well. Add the whey powder if using, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Mix until combined well.
Pour in the water/yeast mixture, the oil or melted butter, and the cider vinegar. Mix on low speed to combine and then beat on high for 3 minutes.
Remove dough from bowl and knead on a floured or parchment covered counter top until it comes together nicely.
Divide into 15 equal portions.
Take each portion and shape into a stick. Unlike many gf doughs that are a bit like cake batter, this dough is firm and easy to work with.
Place the bread sticks on your baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
When you are ready to bake them, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are nicely browned.
Remove from oven.
TIP: If you want to be decadent, brush them with a bit of melted butter and sprinkle with salt or seasoning salt when they are hot from the oven.
Let cool and enjoy.
