I love crunchy breadsticks. So I’m really excited to share these super easy keto crunchy breadsticks. They take only 30 minutes to make. The breadsticks are crunchy on the outside with a slightly softer center and full of parmesan cheese flavor.

Superfine blanched almond flour
Make sure you use superfine almond flour and not regular almond flour or almond meal. I also used blanched almond flour as it makes for a better appearance. I haven’t tested this recipe with unblanched
Make sure to use fresh parmesan cheese and not the shelf-stable kind. You can use pre-shredded or you can freshly shred.
Tips for Rolling the Breadsticks
- When you finish mixing the dough, it should still seem crumbly but if you gather and squeeze it together, it should stick together. When using a cookie scoop to make dough balls, it should resemble cookie dough.
- The dough is a little delicate so it may break while you are rolling it out. If that happens, just squeeze it back together and roll again. Once the breadsticks are rolled out, they are difficult to lift without breaking which is why I recommend rolling them on the same baking sheet that you will be using for baking. When you are done rolling one, you can push it off to the side so there is enough room to roll the other breadsticks. When you are finished, you can push the breadsticks back to spread them out before baking.
- The dough starts to rub off on your hands when you are rolling. I recommend washing your hands halfway through, otherwise it gets difficult to roll all of the breadsticks because so much of the dough starts to stick to your hand.
- If you find that your dough is not binding together you can add a few drops of water. Be careful not to add too much because it will cause the breadsticks to spread too much when baking.
These breadsticks taste of parmesan cheese. If you want more flavor, you can add dried herbs (like rosemary or basil) or some powder spices like garlic powder or chili powder. You can also add some sea salt if you want something saltier.

3 Ingredient Keto Crunchy Breadsticks
- 1 cup superfine almond flour blanched
- 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 large eggs
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add almond flour, parmesan cheese and eggs into food processor. Blend on high speed until ingredients are evenly combined. You may need to scrape the sides or bottom a few times with a spatula to make sure all the ingredients get blended. Your mixture will look crumbly but if you grab some and squeeze it together, it should stay together and resemble cookie dough consistency.
- Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop packed balls of dough onto prepared baking pan. Squeeze the ball of dough between your palms a few times. Then roll the ball out on the parchment paper until it is 1/2 inch thick. Push finished breadstick to the side of the baking pan so you have enough room to continue to roll remaining breadsticks. Repeat with remaining dough. I recommend washing your hands halfway through because some of the dough will stick to your palms and it will get harder to roll. When you are finished, you can push the breadsticks to spread them out on the baking sheet, spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
- Bake breadsticks for about 18-20 minutes or until they breadsticks are medium brown in color and crunchy on the outside.
- The thinner your breadsticks, the crunchier they will be. I don't recommend making them any thicker than 1/2 inch.
- After the breadsticks are rolled out, they will be difficult to lift without breaking so it is best to roll them out on the prepared baking pan and you can push to move them around as needed.
- If you find that your dough is not sticking together, you can add a few drops of water to your dough. Be careful not to add too much because it will cause the breadsticks to spread out too much when baking.
- I have not tried to make this without a food processor. You can try mixing by hand but make sure you finely grate the parmesan cheese instead of using shredded parmesan cheese.
