JUMP TO RECIPE

Making cauliflower breadsticks sounds like a lengthy process (after all, how cauliflower turns into a thin crispy crust), but let me assure you, it barely qualifies as baking. The whole process takes about 30 minutes and is so so worth it!

Replacing Highly Refined Processed Foods

So you’re probably following a low carb or gluten-free diet or, like me, trying to get rid of the most highly refined processed foods. Most bread fall into the processed-foods department, showing very little nutritional value and loaded with sugar (1). If we ditch the bread, what are we going to pair with our avo? Or dip into our hummus?

Load Them Up With Toppings Of Your Choice

With these cauliflower breadsticks, you’ll be able to smother them into any sauce guilt-free (provided it’s a healthy dip!) or load them up with a topping of your choice. The part you’ll love the most is how the crunch in your mouth and makes you feel like you’re indulging.

Why Are Cauliflower Breadsticks A Better Option?

I compared the nutritional breakdown of these cauliflower breadsticks to normal commercial breadsticks. This recipe has half the calories, half the sugar, and double the fiber. It still has the same fat content because of the coconut oil used.

Good Carbs

The carbs in this recipe come from the whole grains in the oats. These carbs are very beneficial as they’re high in fiber which is essential for your gut flora to stay healthy and nourished.

It’s Not Just About The Calories

Keep in mind not everything is about calories and carb counting. This recipe is loaded with vitamins and minerals you ordinarily wouldn’t get from eating a stick of bread. It’s low GI and will leave you feeling fuller for longer. Not only that but they taste absolutely delishes and are overall very good for you!

  • Spread mixture out onto a lined and greased baking tray. The thinner you make it the quicker it'll cook and the crispier it'll be. But watch closely, before you know it you’ll have charcoal breadsticks. Aim for 1/2" thick.

Notes

Store cooled cauliflower flatbread or breadsticks in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Or freeze them. Once frozen you can defrost and reheat them in a skillet using some coconut oil to make them crispy again

Make More Than Just Breadsticks

This recipe is just the start of great things. When the flatbread comes out of the oven, Instead of cutting it up, use it as a pizza base. Another great option is using it as a wrap or burrito (because it has such high flex). Just put your ingredients in the middle and roll it up.

Notes

You should make double or triple the amount and store some of it in the fridge or freezer after cooking and reheat it on a pan for a quick healthy snack!
