The modern world is surrounded by bread – there is everywhere bread and if it happens you go to a restaurant, bread is always served. Sometimes even as homage of the house as starter. Something quick to eat on the go? Sandwich, burger, salad with croutons… OK, it doesn’t make it really easy for someone NOT to eat bread or to avoid it. And sometimes I confess I like some bread as a base for the prosciutto, some nice spread, to dip in some fresh made hummus or just with a little bit salt and olive oil on it. Or even a bruschetta… so great in summer!
So every now and then I look up some bread recipes that work for me. And I found lately these really ridiculously super yummy breadsticks. I made them a second time as focaccia with olive oil and oregano on the top. Too good to put it in words!
I found the original recipe on Rebooted Mom. But like nearly all the time the original recipe never works right for me. So while preparing I re-invented it for me. And I used olive oil instead of coconut oil, I had no garlic or onion powder, instead I just chopped 2 garlic gloves, my herbs were just oregano. And as the batter was too soft to work with, I added more tapioca and almond flour.
The outcome is.. well, I already used those words above: ridiculously yummy. The day after I brought them to a friend’s house for lunch, together with a big salad, and she just dived into the breadsticks. These are a must-have for every party or friends’ entertainment!
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup flax seed flour
- 2 eggs (medium size)
- 3 tbsp olive oil (EVO)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp pink salt
- 3 gloves garlic (minced)
- 1 tsp oregano
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
- In a bowl mix the first 4 ingredients and add one after the other of the rest of the ingredients. Stir well until all is well combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form out of the bread dough 6 balls. Dip your hands in tapioca flour as the dough is very sticky.
- Roll the balls one by one into long sticks. Place them on the parchment paper and bake them for 10 minutes.
- Brush the finished grissini with butter and put some more origano on the top.
If the dough is too sticky or runny, add some more flax seed flour, just one tablespoon. The flax seed flour absorbs a lot of the liquid. So be careful.
You can make the bread sticks also without garlic and oregano, so they have a more neutral taste.
