Instead of reaching for the Ritz, try baking a batch of these breadsticks to nibble on throughout the week. How do they stack up? Three breadsticks are just 66 calories and pack nearly a gram of fiber.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon finely minced fresh rosemary
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Combine flours, cheese, baking powder and rosemary in a medium bowl. Add 5 tablespoons water and oil, and stir until mixture comes together. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly for 2-3 minutes. Divide dough into 18 equal portions and shape each into an 8-inch rope. Place ropes on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
