Cauliflower Breadsticks

Healthy high protein cauliflower breadsticks

Serves 8. Serving Size: 1 breadstick


  • 3 c of cauliflower rice (pre-bagged in the produce section)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 scoop Multi-Purpose IdealLean Protein
  • 0.5 c low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 0.25 tsp. garlic powder
  • 0.25 tsp. salt
  • 0.25 tsp. ground pepper
  • 0.5 tsp. dried Italian herb seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper so that the excess paper hangs over the sides. Set aside.

  2. Place the cauliflower rice into a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes, until cooked.

  3. Transfer the cauliflower rice in a tea towel and twist it to squeeze as much moisture as you can. This is very important. The cauliflower rice needs to be dry, otherwise you’ll end up with mushy breadsticks.

  4. Transfer the cauliflower rice to a medium bowl, add the protein powder, egg, mozzarella cheese, Italian herb seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix well.

  5. Spread cauliflower mixture in the prepared loaf pan.

  6. Bake until the loaf is set and starting to turn golden, about 25-30 minutes.

  7. In the meantime, line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.

  8. When the breadsticks are cooked, use the parchment paper to lift out of the loaf pan and carefully flip it over onto the lined baking sheet (so the bottom is on top). Bake for further 10 minutes until golden.

  9. Optional: Take it out of the oven and preheat the broiler. Sprinkle more mozzarella cheese on top of the loaf, and broil a couple minutes until the cheese is melted and golden in spots.

  10. Let cool a couple of minutes before cutting into 8 sticks. Serve with marinara sauce. Enjoy!
