  • Yield: 6 8-inch (20 cm) breadsticks 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Let the nibbling begin with a batch of my chickpea flour breadsticks! Easy-to-make in one bowl, they are vegan, grain-free, yeast-free, nut-free & gluten-free. Enjoy as a snack or serve with your favorite soups and salads.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups (180 g) chickpea flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) water (more, if needed)
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) oil (for testing, I used olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (or lemon juice)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the chickpea flour, salt, and baking soda. If desired, add any optional herbs and spices as well.
  3. Add the water, oil and vinegar to the bowl. Mix, scraping sides of the bowl, until a cohesive dough forms.
  4. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions (you can use your kitchen scale, or just eyeball it). Using your hands, roll each portion into a ball (compact it with your hands, for easier rolling in the next step) and place on a very lightly floured (with chickpea flour) cutting board or other work surface.
  5. Place one dough ball in the center of the board. Roll the dough ball into an even, 8-inch (20 cm) rope.  Place on the prepared baking sheet (alternatively, roll each rope in toppings of choice, then place on sheet).
  6. Repeat with remaining dough balls, spacing the dough ropes a few inches apart.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 13 to 17 minutes until golden brown and the surface appears dry (there may be a few very fine cracks).
  8. Remove from oven and cool completely on the baking sheet.


Storage: Store the breadsticks in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week (storing the breadsticks in the refrigerator helps to prevent the breadsticks from becoming soft).

Chickpea flour tip: You can use any variety of chickpea flour (including varieties labeled besan, garbanzo bean flour and gram flour).
