Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels??  OH YES.  They're so delicious, you'd never know they're sugar free, low carb, high fiber, high protein, dairy free, and gluten free!


Pretzel Dough:

Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:


For the Pretzel Dough:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the psyllium and yeast.
  • In a stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment, add the almond milk, applesauce, egg whites, butter flavor, vanilla extract, and stevia extract. Turn on medium speed.  While mixing, sprinkle in the psyllium/yeast mixture. Mix until smooth.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then mix until smooth again.  Mixture should look like thick gravy.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the soy flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the stand mixer and mix on low speed.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix on last time on medium speed.  Dough should be very thick, dense, and slightly sticky.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Place the bowl in a warm area for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Carefully roll the dough into long logs (if the log breaks, just stick it back and it’ll be fine…  these are gluten free, so that’s kinda expected right?) and shape into pretzels. Carefully transfer the pretzels onto the prepared pans.  Bake for ~23 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let cool slightly.

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil and butter flavor.  In a shallow dish, whisk together the erythritol and cinnamon.
  • Brush the pretzels with the coconut oil mixture then toss in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Just like storebought pretzels, these are best served immediately after they are made!
