These 2 Ingredient Dough Garlic Breadsticks are the greatest thing since, well, sliced bread! Just two ingredients and a few minutes are all you need for a delicious breadstick.
If you’re following the Weight Watcher diet, you may have seen some recipes for the 2 ingredient dough floating around on the internets. My sister is on the diet and was telling me all about it, and after I saw how much weight she’s lost in just a month I decided it was time to join.
One great thing about the diet is that I can still eat all the foods I love, just with a focus on moderation. Each food is given a point value and you’re to stay within a point limit for the day. Things like bread are usually much higher in points, so this two ingredient dough recipe is great because it actually works out to just 1 point per breadstick!
Two Ingredient Dough Recipe:
You’ll need self rising flour and plain fat free greek yogurt to make the base of the dough. Once the dough is made you can add extras like seasoning on top, roll them into bagels and brush with egg whites, form into a pizza, etc. The possibilities are endless!
If you don’t have self rising flour, have no fear, it’s actually really simple to make!
How To Make Self Rising Flour:
- Combine 1 cup of all purpose flour with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
- Sift the ingredients together and you’re all set!
- You can double the amounts of each ingredient to make and double batch if desired.
- Store in an airtight container.
The dough can be a little sticky when you’re working with it, so just add an extra tablespoon of flour to the dough when needed.
I pressed the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper then used a knife to cut out 8 breadsticks, which made them each 1.5 points per breadstick, or 3 points for two.
There is no rising time needed for these 2 ingredient dough garlic breadsticks! You can have these mixed up and ready to bake in less than 5 minutes!
You may be asking yourself… “Ok, so what do they taste like? What is the texture like?”
They taste AMAZING guys!!
I was seriously shocked at how good they tasted for just TWO ingredients (three if you could the garlic salt on top)!!
The key is to not over bake the dough. You’ll want a golden brown on the bottom, and a light golden brown on top. The insides are soft and fluffy with a delicious chewy texture, while the outside is crisp and salty.
These breadsticks are perfect for dipping into my Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup (zero points!!).
You’re going to be blown away at how delicious and EASY these garlic breadsticks are!

Have you made and put in freezer? Debating how long to cook if recooking/ reheating at a later time.
Has anyone tried sour cream instead of yogurt?? Same amount?
It said two ingredients and there are four
The name is a little confusing. It is Garlic Breadsticks made from a base of two ingredient dough. The dough can be made into all kinds of things from sweet to savory by adding different seasonings.
Great recipe! I added a little bit of (Anthony’s) diastatic malt powder to the flour and cooked these in an air fryer. A tablespoon of the malt powder is low on diet points, especially when you yield eight bread sticks. The bread came out darker than your pictures but just as delicious. These were a big hit with the langostino scampi we had last night.
Thanks for the comment and rating Peter! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
I am so looking forward to trying these!
Could you make them in advance? Or would you recommend making them and baking them right away?
These would be best baked right away.
My husband loved the way these breadsticks tasted, and I loved how incredibly simple they were to make. Literally, it took like 5 minutes maybe to prep them. We paired them up with a hearty soup, and it made the perfect dinner. Love that this recipe allows me to make breadsticks without much planning ahead because I almost always have greek yogurt and self-rising flour on hand.
That’s so great to hear Laura! I’m glad you enjoyed them!
Wow! Greek yogurt! Didn’t expect to see that in the ingredients, but sounds so delicious! And so easy, too! I’m going to try these tonight and it will be 8 points for me… I most likely will say them all! LOL
Hope you enjoy them Kate!
There is also a bread you can make with only 2 ingredients …..self rising flour and a can of beer . I’ve made it many times. You can get creative once you have figured out the dough. Then you might add cheese, black olives, jalapenios , raisens or dried cranberries ….. the ideas are endless !! Make it your own. One thing to remember , do not use a non alcoholic beer because the bread will not rise. Enjoy !!
Ohhh! I’m definitely going to have to play around with that! Thanks for the tip Allison!
What if you can’t have yogurt? Is there a substitute?
You could also try sour cream?? Otherwise, this might not be the recipe for you.
How do the leftovers taste the next day?
If you store them in a zip close bag so they don’t dry out they should be just fine! You can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat and they taste yummy!
Well written, and very informative Shawn! I love this recipe. I’m always looking for healthy alternatives to fan favorite foods. This, ive found, is an excellent dough of choice recipe for practically anything. Pizza dough, Navajo Tacos, even flat breads. I took cheese sticks and wrapped the dough around them in this recipe. Thank you!!!
I’m glad to hear you are enjoying this recipe
Can these be made the day before and taken to a luncheon
What a top idea!
I’ve got so many thoughts about how to use this dough buzzing through my head.
I’m just wondering though if these can be frozen – both before and after baking?
Ladies-can you use coconut flour in the place of the all purpose flour(I add salt and baking powder to get my self rising flour)?
Coconut flour is very dense and different than all purpose flour. I would try looking up some recipes on how to substitute all purpose flour with coconut flour before just trying a 1:1 ratio.
Has anyone made dinner rolls using this recipe???? I’ve made bagels and pizza dough with it using gluten free flour successfully each time…..and was hoping to adapt recipe for dinner rolls???
I’m sure they would work as dinner rolls too. I would start them in a smaller round instead of a bigger ball so they can cook through.
Could you use whole meal S.R flour?
Thank you so much for this recipe!
Made my gluten free flour blend self-rising then made the bread sticks! What a treat! What else could this dough be used to make?
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed it!
EVERYTHING. lol, I make bagels, pretzels, strawberry turnovers, calzones. I’ve seen recipes for Pizza crust and chicken pot pie. Almost literally everything.
I rolled them in to balls then into nan breads and put them in a frying pan with a smear of oil, they take only a minute on each side but taste amazing, really fluffy on the inside, much lighter than Shop bought nans, great with curry, or anything really!
Great idea to make Naan bread!
Can these be made the day before and taken to a luncheon
Great!!!…how can I print the recipes?…Thanks.
Wow ! Never thought of something as easy as that 🙂 Thank you !
Correct if you could the garlic it should be if you count the garlic
