Low Carb Pesto Breadsticks

Low Carb Cheese & Pesto Breadsticks

Keto friendly, low carb and gluten free - not to mention super crunchy and extra cheesy. Make these just before serving, so that there's some left for your guests!

Gluten free & Keto friendly breadsticks

Breadsticks are a favourite at parties, ideal for dunking and munching on between conversations.

But store bought breadsticks are almost always made using grains, seed oils and artificial ingredients. What's more, most are also bland, flavourless and far from fresh.

They might not be something which you usually make from scratch, but with a recipe this quick and easy homemade breadsticks will soon become your speciality.

Made with almond flour, cheese, butter and added Hunter & Gather Collagen Peptides - our cheesy pesto breadsticks are perfect for Keto, Low Carb and Gluten Free lifestyles.

Homemade Keto pesto recipe

Pesto is something else which you may buy readymade, but again - its super simple to make yourself and well worth the effort, especially as most store bought peto contains seed or vegetable oils.

This basil pesto recipe is Keto & Paleo friendly, made using Hunter & Gather Cold Pressed Avocado Oil. Together with garlic, walnuts, parmesan, lemon and - of course - heaps of fresh basil, you'll be dolloping your homemade pesto onto everything you eat.

🌱 Here's the recipe

What can I serve my breadsticks with?

Your cheesy pesto breadsticks will make the perfect appetiser at your next get together with friends or family. Serve in a tall glass jar and provide a selection of dips nearby for dunking.

You can get creative with a gooey melted camembert, serve with more homemade pesto or simply with a selection of Hunter & Gather unsweetened sauces or mayos.

  7. Spread the rectangle with a layer of pesto and use a knife or pizza cutter to slice the dough into 12 thin strips
  8. Pick up each strip by both ends and twist to form a breadstick/twist before placing onto the prepared baking sheet (leave a bit of space between each one as they do spread a bit during cooking)
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden browned and crisp
  10. Enjoy with extra pesto or Hunter & Gather Ketchup for dipping
