Soft Pretzels

Came across this recipe online. There are a ton of pretzel recipes out there and they all pretty much have the same ingredients. This is a gluten and dairy free recipe and can easily be made egg free by substituting the egg with honey or butter (to keep dairy free use a dairy free butter). This was really good and easy to make. I think the dough can be very versatile and I plan on using it for a Ham and Cheddar loaf and some pizza bites.

What you will need:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp yeast
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 2/3 cup flour mix (I used gluten free pantry- it already has guar gum in it)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (only use if it is not included in your flour mix)
  • 1 egg for brushing tops (substitute w/ honey or a non dairy butter)
  • Salt

Preheat oven to 425 and light grease a cookie sheet

Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water in a large bowl.

Add the Honey and flour. Blend into dough. Knead until well mixed…. If necessary add a little more water if to dry- or add flour if to sticky.

form into snake shapes and shape as desired (use your imagination- you can do traditional pretzel shapes or letters).
Place on a greased cookie sheet and brush with egg and sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden brown
Kids thought it was fun to have their initials :)

Enjoy!
