I am always looking for shortcuts. I like simple, easy, no fuss recipes I can throw together at the last second, because I often don't plan ahead (I roll with my days)...

I wanted a super easy, whole grain, pourable batter.... but of course, if you want to use white flour, it will work fine too. I really wanted something pourable because it just seemed so much simpler!
Quick Breadsticks (Basic)
3 cups whole wheat flour (sifted)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups water + 1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
crushed garlic or granulated garlic
anything else you like
Mix together dry ingredients, then make a well in the middle and add wet ingredients. Stir with a large spoon. Combine thoroughly.
The mixture will be batter, not dough.
Pour half the batter onto a lined cookie sheet.
Spread it out with your mixing spoon. Sprinkle the top with olive oil, then top as desired.
Bake at 200 C for about 20 min (but check it because my oven is acting a little funny, it may not be heating up enough!)
Cut and serve. These
come out pretty thin and flat, but tasty. If you want them thicker,
experiment with making this recipe in just ONE cookie sheet instead of
You can also use this as pizza crust, by the way. Just bake for half the time, then top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake for another 8-10 min.
Let me know if you give it a try!
