Servings 8 breadsticks


  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water 110F
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 to 3-1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 large egg

  • Place warm water in a large bowl. Dissolve yeast in water and let stand 5 minutes. Whisk sugar, salt, and olive oil into yeast mixture until smooth. Stir in flour until a dough forms. (dough will be slightly sticky)
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place 1-1/2 hours, or until dough is doubled in size.
