Easy whole wheat bread sticks from toaster oven

I made these bread sticks for a party at work today, everybody liked them since they were so tasty and healthy. You will be surprised to see how easy it is to make these sticks. By adding more water and let the dough rise slowly overnight in the refrigerator, there was not necessary to knead it at all.

Makes 32 sticks


  • 1 packet active dry yeast dissolved in 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 1/2 cups King Arthur Traditional Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 handfuls sesame seeds to coat (optional)


1. In a large bowl, mix in all the ingredients (except sesame seeds) until the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. I used a stand mixer.
2. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap, I used a clean plastic shower cap.
3. Put the dough in the refrigerator overnight.
4. In the morning, let the dough out in room temperature for about 30 minutes.
5. On a flat surface, greased with oil, take about a half size of a ping-pong dough, roll the dough on the surface, stress it out as you roll to make a 9-inch stick.
6. Spread a thin layer of sesame seeds, roll the stick over to coat. (Optional)
7. Toast 4 sticks a time on top brown 2 times.
8. Turn the sticks over, toast on top brown 1 more time.
9. Place them on a rack to cool.
10. I rolled 4 sticks, toasted them, while toasting, I rolled 4 more and toasted until no more dough.
11. The dough will keep in the refrigerator for a week. You can have fresh bread sticks everyday if you want. They taste very good out of the oven. Have fun.
