These vegan breadsticks are baby led weaning friendly, easy to grab, and packed with protein and vegetables, made from chickpea flour.

If you’ve ever had socca, you may recognize this recipe. Socca is made from two ingredients (as are these breadsticks!) – just water and chickpea flour. It creates a firm but soft-enough-for-babies flatbread that can be transformed into food for baby – and adults!

These chickpea breadsticks are made with broccoli, chickpea flour, and water. They’re great for baby, because they pack a great nutritional punch: protein, iron, and vitamins like B-6.

Luca gobbled these up – and they can be cut into whatever shapes you like! And stir in some extra spices or seasonings to amp up the flavor.

I served these to him with some veggie marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese for a calcium boost, extra veggies and great flavor. He loved those too!

However you enjoy these breadsticks, I’m sure they’ll be a hit! They’re freezer friendly too, just make sure you divide the layers with parchment paper, because they stick easily together.

  • 2 cups garbanzo bean flour (chickpea flour)
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Stir the flour and water together in a large bowl well, making sure the flour mixes with the water and there aren't any pockets of flour. This will take a few minutes.
  3. Stir in the broccoli florets and garlic powder to combine. Pour the mixture into a half sheetpan. Carefully transfer to the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown on the outside and firm. The longer the breadsticks cool for, the firmer they get, so keep that in mind in case yours seem gooey or too soft. Cut into preferred shapes and sizes (get creative with cookie cutters!) Serve or freeze.

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
