GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

Craving restaurant-style breadsticks from the comfort of home? These simple GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks are the easiest way to make bakery-fresh bread that has all of the garlicky flavor and none of the gluten!

We all know how delicious those restaurant breadsticks are. And when they come to your table for free, you think one bite might be worth it. My gluten-sensitive friends know that this is not the case!

Instead, make some homemade breadsticks at home that taste even better than the restaurants. Easy GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks are the best appetizer, side, or snack that are fluffy, garlicky, cheesy, and soft. You’ll make these over and over again!

The secret is to use high-quality gluten-free flour, such as Cup4Cup or Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour. The better the flour used, the more delicious these breadsticks will be! Be sure your flour contains xanthan gum, otherwise, include 1 teaspoon per cup in your dry ingredients!

The Secret to Breadsticks – Garlic Butter

Breadsticks are so tender and flavorful on their own. However, many restaurant-style breadsticks have a buttery, savory glaze on the outside of the bread. This is meant to keep the breadsticks moist but to also impart lots of flavor.

If you do make these GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks, do not skip on the Garlic Parmesan Topping! It contains butter, garlic paste, herbs, and cheese, making these little pieces of bread absolutely irresistible! The only thing left to do is serve these with a comforting Italian meal, such as spaghetti squash or gluten-free lasagna!

Ingredients in GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

  • 3 cups gluten-free flour (containing xanthan gum)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons rapid-rise yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

For the Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced very fine (can also use 2 teaspoons garlic paste)
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Pinch of Kosher salt
  • Pinch of dried Italian seasoning
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

How to Make GF Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, yeast, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, and salt until mixed.

Slowly add the water, eggs, and olive oil. Mix until the dough comes together, 1-2 minutes.

Beat this mixture again over high speed for 3-4 minutes until the dough resembles a thick brownie batter consistency. 

Add the dough to a gallon-sized ziptop bag by placing the bag inside a large measuring cup or bowl and folding the sides over the sides. Add the dough to the bag and close it, squeezing out all the air.

Line a baking sheet using parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Snip off ½-inch corner of the bag to create a piping bag. Pipe 3-inch-long tubes of dough directly onto the parchment, leaving an inch or two of space between the breadsticks. Allow to rise for 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Place the risen breadsticks into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown and the inside sounds hollow when tapped with your finger.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic and cook gently for 2-3 minutes to cook out the raw garlic flavor.

Remove from the heat. Add the cheese, salt, Italian seasoning, and parsley.

Brush your baked breadsticks with the garlic butter. Serve warm.
