Gluten Free Italian Breadsticks

  • Author: Michelle
  • Yield: 8 breadsticks 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup water (110F-120F)
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (divided, see notes)
  • 2 tbsp ghee, melted
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (sub another dairy-free milk)
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning

For the garlic butter (optional)

  • 2 tbsp ghee, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Add the yeast to a large bowl and pour the water over the yeast along with the honey. Gently combine to dissolve the yeast. Tightly cover the yeast mixture and allow it to sit for 5-15 minutes. The top of the mixture should be foamy and bubbly.
  3. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking powder, and salt together until combined.
  4. Pour in the yeast mixture, one egg, ghee, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and almond milk. Set the mixer to medium speed and mix for 4-5 minutes or until the dough is fully combined.
  5. Lightly flour a clean surface and add the prepared dough. Divide the dough into 8 even balls, then roll into logs, shaped like breadsticks.
  6. Transfer the breadsticks to the greased baking sheet. Place a clean dishtowel over the baking sheet and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  7. Whisk the other egg in a bowl and brush the breadsticks with a light eggwash. Sprinkle with italian seasoning.
  8. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack when done.
  9. To make the garlic butter, add the ghee and garlic to a small saucepan. Simmer for 3-4 minutes or until the garlic is fragrant. Brush on top of the breadsticks and serve warm with a dip on the side!


You should be able to swap an egg for a flax egg by using 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp water. As for the egg wash, you can skip it, though it will result in breadsticks that are slightly less golden.
