Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 cup potato starch (not potato flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon guar gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk, or any plain milk substitute
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, extra for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, arrowroot starch, potato starch, guar gum, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add milk or milk substitute, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar. Bring wet and dry ingredients together with a fork and then work through by hand until dough forms. Dough will be very sticky. Scrape dough off hands and let sit for 5 minutes. Wash Hands.
  4. Shape dough into a square on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (You can very lightly dust the parchment paper with potato starch if you find the dough too sticky) Use a knife to cut into 5 pieces as pictured above. Gently roll each piece out to measure about 7-8 inches or so.
  5. Brush each piece with olive oil and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes. Check in at 10 minutes–at this point you can brush with additional olive oil and garlic or add vegan cheese for cheesy sticks! Cook until golden let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Have some marinara sauce ready for dipping!
  6. Store leftovers in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Reheat in microwave or oven. Enjoy!
  7. FOR THE BAGUETTE:
  8. There is only one addition to the ingredients for the Baguette. Add 1/4 tsp baking powder (Hain brand is grain-free) to the dry mix and continue through step 3.
  9. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, use the entire amount of dough and mold it into a baguette shape. Make a slice down the middle lengthwise about 1/2 and inch deep. Brush with olive oil and bake for about 20-25 minutes. At the halfway mark, brush with vegan butter or additional olive oil. You can raise the temperature to 400 degrees at this point for a more golden color.
  10. Let the baguette cool for a FULL 15 MINUTES before slicing. It will still be warm enough to melt butter. Alternatively, after slicing, you can place butter, fresh garlic and a tiny bit of salt in the grooves and bake for another five minutes. Enjoy!
