Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

You guys! Since going gluten-free, my husband and I rarely eat bread. Not gonna lie–I’m lazy, so I don’t make my own. I have started eating Ezekiel bread every so often (okay, sometimes every day when I make avocado toast), but it’s not the same as the horrible-for-you white bread I ate while growing up. πŸ™‚ And, while this isn’t sandwich bread, it’s a seriously delicious, garlicky, gooey-bread breadstick. OMGYUMMM.

Savory, soft, and fluffy gluten-free/vegan breadsticks! Garlicky and delicious for all eaters! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #garlic #breadsticks

You can dip in a marinara sauce too, which is why we love making these with pasta. Or when we have leftover sauce. Or whenever we want breadsticks. Which has been a lot lately. πŸ™‚ They’re fairly addicting, especially if you love (and miss) bread.Β For real, I could eat these πŸ™‚ So, if you’re GF and vegan, you can still eat some delicious breadsticks!
