Recipe: Low-Carb Cauliflower Crust Bread Sticks


What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think bread sticks?

For me it’s CARBS. That’s usually my biggest weakness/guilty pleasure.

Luckily, I’ve found a way around my beloved carbs! These cauliflower bread sticks use cauliflower for the base instead of the usual flour/dough.

Although these cheesy bread sticks are low-carb they aren’t particularly low-fat but they are a much healthier alternative to regular bread sticks and great for people on a low-carb diet.

Plus, you can also use low-fat cheese and make it work for you if you are concerned about the calories.
