The perfect side for soups and dipping, with a rustic crunchy crust and a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth inside, these Rustic Gluten-Free Breadsticks or Rolls are hard to not eat all at once!
I have a serious bread-love.
There’s something so comforting about the warmth of a freshly baked loaf of bread, the delicious smell that permeates the house when it’s in the oven, and the soft texture that awaits you devouring it.
But since going gluten-free way back when, bread and I haven’t been on the best of terms. I used to be a pro at baking regular bread, but gluten-free bread is a whole other beast, my friends! I came up with one recipe that made me happy and didn’t venture any further.
Lately, though, I’ve been trying to get back in the bread game. I didn’t feel up to a whole loaf quite yet, so I figured I’d start small and move up from there.
Breadsticks are just the thing.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had breadsticks. I used to down them like a champ at the Olive Garden, but sadly that’s not an option any more.
So I decided it was high time I made my own!
These Rustic Gluten-Free Breadsticks are super duper easy, and have a wonderfully crusty texture with a melt-in-your-mouth inside. Perfect for dipping in herbed olive oil, soup, or just munching out fresh out of the oven… Not that I do that. At all. 😉
This recipe makes about 20 breadsticks, or you can not roll them out into ropes and enjoy them as little rolls. Either way, they’re delish!
I made these breadsticks with some of Gluten-Free Mama’s Almond Flour Blend, which I highly recommend. It’s a delicious blend of some of my favorite gluten-free flours and starches and adds a wonderful texture to the breadsticks. If you’ve never checked it out, do it…

Rustic Gluten-Free Breadsticks or Dinner Rolls
Free from gluten, eggs, and refined sugar, with dairy-free option.
- 1 cup Mama’s Almond Flour Blend
- 1/2 cup sorghum flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch
- 2 teaspoons guar gum
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup warm water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons butter (or more olive oil for dairy-free)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In liquid measuring cup, combine water, oil, and honey. Stir into dry ingredients until completely mixed and ball of dough forms.
With greased hands, divide dough in half and then in half again and again until you end up with golf-ball sized pieces.
For rolls, leave the pieces as they are and place on cookie sheet.
For breadsticks, roll the pieces of dough into strips about 8 inches long. Be careful not to make the tips smaller than the middles of the strips, otherwise they will burn.
In small saucepan, melt butter. Sauté garlic in the butter until fragrant (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and brush over breadsticks.
Place breadsticks in oven and turn the oven on to 400. When the oven is completely preheated, the breadsticks will be done!
*Depending on your oven, this baking time may vary a little, so keep an eye on them. It takes my oven about 20 minutes to reach 400 degrees. When the breadsticks are browned on the bottom, they’re done!
Try these delicious breadsticks with hearty, comforting bowl of soup!
Here are a few of my favorites:
- Creamy Roasted Red Pepper & Sausage Cauliflower Soup
- Quick & Easy Veggie Lentil Soup
- Creamy Squash & Apple Soup
- Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Soup in the Instant Pot
- Quick & Easy Potato Soup in the Instant Pot

I hear you on the bread making. I had given up when we went gluten free. But, I’m ready to try again. These rustic breadsticks look like a good place to start. Thanks, I’ll be sharing this. 🙂

Yummy! These look great!
Thanks, Bethany! 🙂
Look yummy! I’ve never used sorghum flour. Is Guar gum something that replaces gluten?
Oh, sorghum is one of my favorite gluten-free flours! And yes, the gum helps bind the dough, like gluten does in regular flour. 🙂
Thanks for sharing this on Allergy Free Wednesdays! I am featuring your recipe this week Raia!
Thanks so much, Tessa! 🙂
Made these for soup tonight and they are great! I do not have mixes, so Used 1/4 cup each rice, sweet rice, potato starch, and almond to replace the Mamas Almond Blend. I only got 9 8 inch breadstick, so my golf balls must be bigger than yours. (:
We cooked an additional 10 minutes probably because of this, but they are great! thanks Raia!
Haha! It’s been a while since I went mini-golfing, so it entirely possible that my “golf-ball size” is kinda off. 😉 I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Tessa! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
