Easy keto broccoli cheesy breadsticks are quick to make and are a great low carb and gluten free appetizer.  It’s a great way to sneak something green into your food. A delicious combination of cheese and broccoli baked in a bread stick form.

There is no almond flour or coconut flour to bind these vegetable breadsticks, making them a great option for anyone with nut or coconut allergies. Once again, broccoli is stepping into the shoes of cauliflower and is holding up rather well with these cheesy bread sticks.   It would make a great low carb pizza base too.   Extra cheese on the top is optional but the Chief Taster demanded it for this batch.

These broccoli cheesy breadsticks are delicious paired with a Marinara sauce.  It adds to the almost pizza-like taste that these bread sticks have.  Soft and gooey, you would not think that you are munching into a head of broccoli.  Broccoli goes so well with cheese that this is an easy recipe with winning flavour combinations.

Broccoli Cheesy Breadsticks Baking Tips

 Parchment paper is a must!  I tried this with grease proof paper and the mixture stuck to one side.  We had to scrape it off with a knife and it did not look good.  Tasted lovely, just looked a green and cheesy mess.   I’ve also played around with this by adding coconut flour and ground flax seed to make it a bit firmer.  It was not as nice as this one.  Perhaps when you have a plain and simple recipe you should just leave it alone!

    Didn’t really hold together well, but tasted quite good. I added a couple pinches of salt too. I used Italian blend cheese so maybe that was part of the binding problem. Once I added more cheese on top I broiled them for 2 mins too to get a little brown going.

    The flavor is great on this, but mine don’t seem to be binding or holding a shape. Did I miss something or not cool them for long enough?

      Perhaps the broccoli has a bit too much water in it? I’ve found the cheese holds it together.

    This was great! I had a bag of broccoli pearls that I wasn’t sure what to do with and this recipe was perfect. Thanks.

      I keep them in the fridge since they have cheese. They will firm up a bit because of this overnight (great for breakfast with eggs!).

    I find that heads of broccoli are so varied in size…do you know in cups how much it would measure after processing? Thanks. This looks delish…I love the cauliflower and I think my husband would eat this one since he likes broccoli.

      Hi, I would estimate it to be about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of broccoli. I hope you enjoy it!

          You could, but defrost it first.
