Remember last week when I invited you into my kitchen and showed you all the fun things I did to remodel it? Well… one of my newest favorite gadgets is my new Blendtec Designer 725 blender.

It’s ahhhhh-mazing!!

Small Batch Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

I have used my new blender nearly every single day, sometimes more than once a day since I opened the box. The super 3.8 peak horsepower motor and several preprogrammed blend speeds can whip up just about any concoction in no time!

Then there is the Twister Jar! Ultra thick shakes, nut butters, hummus, baby food and even bread dough are just a few seconds away with this bad boy!

Let me show you how you can make breadsticks in your blender…



Breadsticks in your blender!

Small Batch Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks-

I realize I could have shown you how to make a smoothie or a shake, or even some almond butter…

But have you ever made a bowl of spaghetti or a plate of lasagna and thought… man, I could really go for some breadsticks right now!

Not a giant batch, but just enough to satisfy that craving. Well, here ya go!

With this simple recipe you can have 4 light and fluffy breadsticks that are slathered in a garlic and rosemary infused butter then sprinkled with parmesan cheese, in no time!

It couldn’t be easier too!

Just pop a little warm water, yeast and sugar in your twister jar and pulse 2 times. Let the yeast activate and then add the salt, olive oil and flour. Pulse about 10 more times and twist the Twister Jar lid counter clockwise until a dough ball forms. Let it sit there and double in size.

Divide the dough into 4 equal parts, roll into ropes and place in a small baking dish. Lightly cover it and let it rise again until it’s doubled in size.

Pop them in the oven and bake until golden brown!

As soon as they come out of the oven brush them down with a mixture of melted butter, crushed rosemary and lots of garlic salt.

Oh man… these breadsticks are so good!

It’s probably a good thing for my will power that I make these in a small batch.

Don’t be afraid of working with yeast with this super simple recipe. Let the Twister Jar do the work for you!

If you don’t have the Twister Jar yet, you can still make this recipe! Check out the notes section of the recipe for how to do it.

A small batch of Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks made in the Twister Jar of your BlendTec blender!

  • Author: Shawn
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: Side dish
  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: Italian


  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cups flour

For the Butter Topping:

  • 3 tbsp butter, melted, divided
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese


  1. Add the first 3 ingredients to the Twister Jar and place the Twister Lid on jar. Hold the Twister Lid and with other hand press “Pulse” 2 times and allow yeast to proof 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the salt, olive oil and flour in that order and place Twister Lid on jar. Hold Twister Lid and with other hand press “Pulse” 6 to 8 times until all the flour is incorporated and dough ball forms. Remember to turn Twister Lid counter-clockwise during blending.
  3. Allow the dough to rise in the jar with the lid secure until doubled in size (about 1 hour).
  4. Remove dough from Twister Jar and divide into 4 equal size balls. Roll the balls into ropes and place in a lightly greased baking pan or on a baking sheet. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a small dish and brush the tops of the breadsticks. Lightly cover with a tea towel and let rise again until double in size.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (or until golden brown) in a 375 degree F oven.
  6. Combine the butter topping ingredients in a small bowl and brush over the breadsticks once they come out of the oven. Enjoy hot!


If you want to make this recipe without a Twister Jar:  Combine the warm water, yeast and sugar in a medium bowl and stir a few times. Let the yeast activate for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the salt, oil and flour to the bowl and stir with a sturdy wooden spoon until a dough ball forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until the dough is pliable.  Lightly grease a medium bowl and place dough ball in it. Cover and let double in size. Follow the directions starting at step 4.

    I would make smoothies…especially green ones. I would also love to try your breadsticks…what a fascinating idea!

  2. Starla B

    This is so ironic because garlic breadsticks are my absolute favorite, well and bread. What an awesome blender. I would definitely make some homemade salsa first and also a green juice! xo

    First I would make the breadsticks. Can’t wait to try them. Small batches are best for us. I love a good and smooth smoothie. I am using more fresh fruit and vegetables in our daily menu. Small batches are the way to go when cooking with my 8 year old granddaughter. She loves to cook with me and muffins are her specialty.

  4. Victoria Alba

    I would definitely make smoothies but I would also love to make baby food in the twister jar. I have 80 pounds to lose and a blend tech blender would make it a little easier for me to achieve my dream of being healthier and making healthier food for my son. I absolutely LOVE that you can make breadsticks with this blended. Really, the possibilities with this blender are ENDLESS!!

  5. Carol Burgess

    I would definitely make the bread sticks and do a review on it. They look so yummy. I would stay in the kitchen making all kinds of yummy things for my toddlers. Thank you for the chance at this AWESOME giveaway!
