Extra Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks. (Gluten/Grain/Yeast Free with a Dairy Free option.)

Extra Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks. (Gluten/Grain/Yeast Free with a Dairy Free option.)

A few months back I posted a Naan recipe- that quickly became one of my most popular recipes here on the site. I receive rave reviews from readers on a weekly basis how they can't believe how fantastic the texture is- despite the fact that its a grain free bread!

I took that same Naan recipe and made some adjustments and added a whole bunch of cheese to create these Cheesy Breadsticks! They are chewy, tender, soft and fluffy. Best of all they can be made with either real cheese or your favorite non-dairy variety of cheese shreds.

When these breadsticks first come out of the oven they may seem too moist- but don't worry as they start to cool down a little they will gain the perfect texture! Enjoy.

Extra Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks.


  • 4 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup plain Yogurt (dairy or nondairy will work)
  • 1/4 cup of mild flavored oil.
  • 1 Tsp. Vinegar (any variety)
  • 5 Tbs WHOLE psyllium husks. (use only whole)
  • 1/2 packed cup of Coconut flour
  • 1 cup Tapioca starch
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Baking powder (I use double acting)
  • 1 Tbs Garlic Powder (Fresh minced garlic would taste great too- use as much as you want of the fresh!)
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt.
  • 2 cups of shredded Cheddar Cheese (dairy or nondairy)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the first 5 ingredients (Eggs, Yogurt, Oil and Psyllium and Vinegar). Set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl mix together the remaining ingredients (Coconut Flour, Tapioca, Baking Powder, Garlic, Salt and Cheese).
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until you end up with a dough thick enough to form into breadsticks.
  5. Roll out into 6- Eight inch long, 1 inch wide breadsticks. Place spaced apart on the cookie sheet. (They will spread a bit in the oven.) Brush each breadstick with a little oil.
  6. Place into the oven to bake for 22-24 minutes. During the last 5 minutes I like to throw some extra cheese on top of each breadstick so that it has just enough time to melt. (Theres no such thing as too much cheese!)

    Would coconut cream/milk work as an alternative to yoghurt? I’m fine with small amounts of cheese, but don’t tolerate dairy (or soy) yoghurt. Thanks!

      I would say use coconut or almond yogurt, either should work fine. For cheese, you should try Daiya. It’s free of dairy and soy and is delicious!

    Would flax meal+water work in place of eggs? Or do you have any preferred egg replaces for bread?

    These look great! Is there an alternative for the psyllium husks? Or do they serve a specific purpose? Thanks for your time!

    Hi!…These look amazing for a gluten-free apΓ¨ro…Is there a reason to use only whole psyllium husks?…I just purchased a bag of psyllium white “flakes” in a somewhat dry and light form….Could I possibly use these?…In France I think I can obtain the whole psyllium seed in the pharmacies…

    Also…could one replace the cheese with nutriotional yeast?….Thank you so much for all of your sharing…much appreciated!

    Oh man I made these last night and can I say: you have made my life so much better! I can’t eat most gluten-free bakery or supermarket food, so I kinda assumed this kind of heavenly softness and chewiness was outside of my range of food. But its not!! Man these are amazing.. I can’t stop checking the ingredients to check I really can eat them! .. Thanks so much Real Sustenance, these have made me so happy πŸ™‚ You’re an angel πŸ™‚

      .. The only problem is that these are so good that everyone else wants to eat them! Humph, gluten-eaters, only turn up for the good eats.. πŸ˜‰ Def gonna have to be a double recipe next time..

    Loved these! Nice to finally eat something solid that I didn’t have to pay for later. I was out of a lot of ingredients so used coconut milk for the yogurt, white rice flour for 1/2 the Tapioca flour, flax seed for the Psyllium husks, then substituted Rosemary for the cheese. This seems to be a great general recipe that isn’t too fragile to change around. I’ll be using it for a Pizza crust in the future πŸ™‚

    Where do I start on HOW AMAZING this recipe is??? I made these last week as bread sticks and my hubby (gluten eater) and I LOVED them!!! Today I starting thinking about a nice toasty piece of bread and I thought about these again! I just made them and instead of making bread sticks I put the dough into a bread pan and made a loaf of bread!! Now I have a nice crusty end piece of warm garlic cheesy bread with butter for a snack!! OMYUMMY! Thank you for bringing Bread back into my life!!!! πŸ™‚

    I’m gonna try to use this recipe for pizza today! The breadsticks were a hit and I figure it would make a rockin’ pizza crust too! I will report back.

    I made these tonight and was able to get a bakers dozen out of the dough. They were very yummy and we brushed a little melted butter on them and a sprinkle of garlic salt right out of the oven. Delicious!

    Which psyllium do you use? We went to the Vitamin Shoppe last night and were told that none that they had could be used for cooking.

Thank you!
