  • 1 Tbsp.  neutral-tasting high-heat oil (e.g., grapeseed)
  • 1 tsp.  brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 tsp.  sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp.  finely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp.  chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp.  garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp.  dried oregano


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Cut the bread into small cubes and place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Toss to coat.
  • Place on an ungreased, rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the croutons are crisp. Let cool before using.

These croutons go perfectly with this ceasar salad.
