Healthy Gluten-Free Flourless Breadsticks

Makes 16 Breadsticks


  • 2 cans chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame butter or use cashew butter)
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce (optional)

*This is a large double batch! Feel free to cut this in half.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Add oil and garlic to your food processor. Chop until garlic is in small chunks.
  3. Add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth dough consistency (stopping to scrape down sides).
  4. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread dough evenly over sheet.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 36 minutes – please use your discretion this should turn out golden brown (*if you are cutting this recipe in half only bake for 22 minutes).
  6. Remove from oven and let cool completely on the pan or on a baking rack (if you do not let this cool completely before cutting it will crumble).
  7. Cut breadsticks into desired shapes.
  8. Enjoy!
