Garlic and Herb Breadsticks anyone? These treats are packed with garlic - both in the gluten free, vegan dough and in the infused oil brushed on risen sticks before baking. Vampires beware! **The dough makes a fantastic pizza crust too!**
Combine the yeast, sugar and warm water in a small bowl and let stand 10 minutes.
In a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer) whisk together the flaxseed, flour, garlic powder and guar gum.
Add the foamy yeast mixture to the bowl and mix for 3 minutes with a sturdy spoon (or using the paddle if using a stand mixer).
Add the oil and salt from Column C to the bowl and mix until the dough comes together into a soft ball and feels somewhat elastic. (If the dough feels too dry, add the warm water in small amounts until the dough feels right.).
Set the dough aside in a warm place and let it rise for 1 hour.
Deflate dough and knead briefly in the bowl. Let rest 5 minutes.
Heat the oven to 375F.
Combine the oil, garlic and herbs in a small bowl.
Divide the dough into 18 balls and shape into breadsticks (I found it easiest to treat the dough like playdough and squeeze tubes with my hands).
Place shaped sticks on a parchment lined sheet and brush with the garlic oil. Let rise 30 minutes.
Bake the breadsticks for 20 minutes. Cool at least 15 minutes before enjoying!
