These 2 ingredient breadsticks are perfectly chewy with a slightly crispy crust. You’ll love how easy it is to make these tasty, healthy breadsticks!

Cottage Cheese breadsticks

I know it might sound crazy but after I discovered how easy it was to make cottage cheese bagels, I decided I had to try making breadsticks! It turned out to be so simple, and I loved the flavor. These don’t taste like a healthy alternative to breadsticks; they taste like the real deal! The best part is, since they’re made with cottage cheese, they’re a good protein source!

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Self-Rising Flour– You can use all-purpose flour if you don’t have self-rising flour. Use one cup of all-purpose flour mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • Cottage cheese– You can use low-fat or full-fat cottage cheese; either one works great. You can use plain Greek yogurt if you don’t have cottage cheese.
  • Seasoning– This is optional but you can top them with garlic, sea salt, rosemary, parsley, or other herbs.

How to Make Self-Rising Flour

If you don’t have self rising flour, it’s easy to make your own! The ratio is one cup of all-purpose flour mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. This makes slightly more than one cup of self-rising flour, which is all you’ll need for these breadsticks.

Tips & Tricks

  • These breadsticks are best served straight from the oven. If you’re enjoying them as leftovers, I recommend reheating them in the oven, air fryer, or toaster oven for a few minutes.
  • You can make these with plain Greek yogurt if you don’t have cottage cheese.
  • Try serving these breadsticks with garlic dipping sauce, pesto dip, or vegetarian pizza dip!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

To store leftover breadsticks, allow them to cool completely at room temperature. Once cooled, place them in an airtight container or resealable bag to maintain freshness. Store the container or bag in a cool, dry place, such as the pantry or cupboard. (Do not store them in the fridge as this will cause them to dry out.)

When reheating, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the breadsticks on a baking sheet and bake for about 2-3 minutes, or until they are heated through and crisp. You can also reheat these in an air fryer. Set the air fryer to 300 degrees and air fry for 2-3 minutes or until heated.
