The part that takes the longest is letting the dough rise, which will take about an hour. The pretzel dough just needs to sit lightly covered in a large bowl in a warm place for about an hour, and once the yeast has done its work, the fun begins. While you wait, throw on some Christmas tunes or whatever gets you into the holiday spirt!

Ingredients

Pretzels

  • 1.5 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 + 1/4 tsp Bobs Red Mill active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 + 1/2 cup Bobs Red Mill all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Bobs Red Mill baking soda

For Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 1/2 cup Bobs Red Mill coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. In a cuisine art mixer, combine water and sugar

  2. add yeast and let sit 10 minutes until foamy

  3. Add in the flour and salt + the dough hook. Before turning it on make sure to stir the dough with a spoon to get it started!

  4. Turn the mixer on medium, beat fir about 5 minutes until the dough is pulling from the sides of the bowl

  5. take the dough hook off and remove the dough. Coat the bowl with oil and place the dough back in and cover it with plastic wrap + a damp kitchen towel for 1 hour in a warm place. You want the dough to double in size!

  6. Preheat oven 450F and line baking sheets with parchment paper

  7. Cut away 1/4 cup sized balls of dough, roll them into thin logs and cut 1” pieces and place them onto baking sheets

  8. Once you’ve cut all the pretzel dough into small pieces, bring a large pot of water to a boil

  9. Slowly add the baking soda (I say slowly because it will react!) Reduce the heat to medium-low and in small batches cook the pretzel bites for 1 minute – flipping halfway through

  10. Remove pretzels from the pot and line them up on the baking sheets

  11. Bake them for 11ish minutes, or until golden brown!

  12. To coat them let the pretzels cool and them toss them in melted butter then coconut sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy!
