I cannot recall the last time I had a pretzel. A soft, baked pretzel at that. I can also honestly say that I’ve never tasted a homemade pretzel. When I was quite young, I regularly crunched on salty twisted, skinny crispy, fluffy soft, and thick straight pretzels. But they all had one thing in common; they came prepackaged and processed, bought easily from the grocery aisles. Since I haven’t been able to indulge in that simple pleasure for years, I am brimming with excitement over these gluten and grain-free soft pretzels. This dough is the easiest to roll and bend into shape due to the pliable coconut flour. When I was rolling out a pretzel between my hands, it almost seemed like there was gluten in it–so mold-able! I’d love to say that this recipe was my own, but I have to give genius credit where it’s due. I used this pretzel recipe from A Love Affair with Honey, and honestly made no changes. Next time I may try adding a little baking soda to make them rise a bit more, but it’s a great recipe either way. It makes beautiful, delicious and healthy grain-free, soy-free pretzels.
