Tasty breadstick alert! These low carb cheese straws are perfect for nibbling and dipping. An easy easy grain free snack recipe with only 5 ingredients.
If you can, weigh your ingredients. Finely grated cheese is very fluffy, so no 2 people will end up with exactly the same amount if you measure by volume. If you're using cups, pack the cheese slightly.
I also recommend using a grater for hard cheese such as parmesan, like the one I used in the picture. If you grate larger pieces, it'll take you longer to get a smooth dough.
Be patient! If you roll your sticks too fast, they can break. Take your time and enjoy the journey :)
The cheese straws are a little soft when they come out of the oven. They firm up and get a nice crunch when they cool down. The thinner you roll the straws (and the more you brown them) the crunchier they'll become.
The psyllium husk acts as a binder. You can make this recipe without, but your dough will be more crumbly. You could try replacing it with a pinch of xanthan gum or a bit of flax seed.
