Cheesy Italian Breadsticks - Low Carb Bread

Today I'm re-sharing my recipe for Cheesy Italian Breadsticks.These breadsticks are amazing and really delicious dipped in pizza sauce. We absolutely love them! If you miss serving bread along with your meals, these breadsticks are the perfect answer and they are easy to make. The leftover breadsticks go beautifully alongside your scrambled eggs and omelets for breakfast, too. Check out the step by step photos and the recipe below. Enjoy!

Cheesy Italian Breadsticks


2 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
3/4 cup blanched almond flour
3/4 cup ground golden flaxseed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3 large eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons olive oil

For the topping:
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley, optional


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or lightly grease a nonstick baking sheet).

In a mixing bowl, mix first 10 ingredients together with a whisk to help break up any lumps; stir in shredded mozzarella.

In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs, buttermilk and olive oil together. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients, mixing just until combined and dough pulls together; lightly shape into a ball.  Allow dough to sit for about 5 minutes; dough thickens as it sits.

Place ball of dough in the center of a sheet of parchment paper on counter or work surface. Cover dough with an additional sheet of parchment paper and roll dough out between parchment, using a rolling pin, into a rectangular or oblong shape, about 9” x 12” (½-inch thick). Lightly grease a pizza wheel or sharp knife and cut into approximate 1-inch wide strips. Carefully transfer strips of dough to prepared baking sheet and space about 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes approximately 1 dozen breadsticks, or if desired, cut strips of dough in half lengthwise to make 2 dozen 4-inch sticks.

Remove breadsticks from oven and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley before serving. If desired, serve with your favorite marinara or pizza sauce for dipping.

*Note: If breadstick dough breaks while transferring to baking sheet, simply press dough lightly back together.
