It’s a great way to sneak something green into your food. There is no almond flour or coconut flour to bind these vegetable breadsticks, making them a great option for anyone with nut or coconut allergies. Once again, broccoli is stepping into the shoes of cauliflower and is holding up rather well with these cheesy bread sticks.   It would make a great low carb pizza base too.  Extra cheese on the top is optional but the Chief Taster demanded it for this batch.

These broccoli cheesy breadsticks are delicious paired with a Marinara sauce.  It adds to the almost pizza-like taste that these bread sticks have.  Soft and gooey, you would not think that you are munching into a head of broccoli.  Broccoli goes so well with cheese that this is an easy recipe with winning flavor combinations.

Broccoli Cheesy Breadsticks Baking Tips

Parchment paper is a must!  Grease proof paper and the mixture stuck to one side, and you still have to scrape it off with a knife and it did not look good.  Tasted lovely, just looked a green and cheesy mess. Played around with this recipe by adding coconut flour and ground flax seed to make it a bit firmer.  It was not as nice as this one.  Perhaps when you have a plain and simple recipe you should just leave it alone!
