Grain-Free Garlic Texas Toast

Bringing you another #SkylerSwap! This week, I made a grain-free veggie based garlic Texas Toast. We replaced refined flour with garbanzo bean flour – yes that exists! It helps make these babies gluten-free and adds some extra protein. Next, I add some cauliflower rice and riced zucchini to make these super fluffy and healthy. This is an amazingly simple recipe and you won’t want to switch back to the original ever again.

To bring the flavor, I did drizzle these with ghee, garlic and olive oil. And of course, I broiled them with a touch of Parmesan cheese on top to bring the crispiness. As someone who enjoys the indulgent garlic sticks from almost any fast food pizza joint, I approve of these. And to be completely candid, I love how much fiber they have compared to the original. My digestive system loves these just as much as my taste buds! LOL. Enjoy!

Instructions
