Rye breadsticks recipe

Adapted from

Yields 16


  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (temperature 115 degrees F), divided
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups white whole-wheat flour, divided
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds


  1. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat liner, and set aside.
  2. To a large bowl, add the yeast, 1/2 cup of water and the maple syrup. Give a gentle stir, and let sit for about 5 minutes or until the yeast looks slightly bubbly.
  3. Add in the remaining water, 1 cup of white whole-wheat flour, the bread flour, rye flour and caraway seeds. Sprinkle in the remaining flour until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Flour a clean working surface, and dump out the dough. Knead by hand for 6 – 8 minutes. Make sure to add more flour while kneading if the dough gets sticky or sticks to the work surface.
  5. Using a bench knife, divide the dough into 16 equal pieces.
  6. Roll each piece into a 10-inch-long breadstick.
  7. Add to the prepared baking sheet, lightly cover, and let rise for about 30 minutes.
  8. When you’re ready to bake, heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
