Surprisingly, with all my food related weaknesses, carbs usually aren’t one of them. I eat them everyday and they are a part of my diet, but I rarely CRAVE them. However, I did say rarely… ;) Most of the time I’m actually craving something soft and salty, like a big soft pretzel or pizza dough. Neither of which will a gluten free substitute to the trick.
My original intention with these was to have pretzel bites. I didn’t end up with the pretzel texture I was aiming for, but was pleasantly surprised by the consolation prize of a ‘failed recipe’. And let’s be honest, half of the recipes I end up adoring were once considered a failure. It’s all about perspective!
These bread-stick bites are perfect right out of the oven! If you choose to store them in your fridge (up to 1.5 weeks in a sealed container), plan to warm them for 20 seconds in your microwave before eating. They are best warm! The Hubs and I enjoyed these with a myriad of different dips and thought they went great with all of them – although we had our favorites. But we’ll let you decide for yourself what you like best ;)
