Description

These homemade whole wheat croutons are easy to make and they’re perfect on top of your favorite soup or salad! Add a nice salty crunch to your next bowl of veggies!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp of onion powder
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice the bread into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Toss the bread in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. You can also use anĀ olive oil spray, which makes it easier to get an even coating.
  4. Spread in a single layer onto a large baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with garlic, onion, and sea salt.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes, then flip and continue to bake until brown. The total time will depend on the heartiness and freshness of your bread. Mine took 10 minutes total.

Notes

If you don’t have a measuring spoon smaller than a 1/4 teaspoon, feel free to just use a pinch. It doesn’t have to exact, especially if you like a lot of flavor!
