Whole Wheat Grissini

Grissini, is an Italian bread stick. When I saw the recipe for these cute sticks at Wild Yeast, I bookmarked it at once. But only now I could prepare this. Thanks to Srivalli and Blogging Marathon for giving an initiative to do bookmarked recipes. I didn’t have flour yesterday and didn’t have time to go shopping. So I thought of replacing flour with atta. This sure will make the sticks more healthy. We liked it a lot. Hubby is not a great fan of breads. So I will let him out. These are perfect for munching, if you have a craving for crunchy snack. You can munch on these without guilt.
