Keto Pretzel Bites

With your preferred cheese sauce or some yellow mustard, these Keto Soft Pretzel Bites are the ideal snack.
I like to eat soft pretzels with cheese sauce at sporting events. If you ask me, they are the ideal salty snack.

A soft pretzel should, in my opinion, be chewy, have a delightful yeasty flavor, and have the ideal ratio of salt to dough sweetness.

Although they are all fine, the other keto soft pretzels I’ve tried didn’t quite reach the mark for me.

To create the finest keto soft pretzel nibbles you’ve ever tasted, I combined all the best elements of the recipes I’ve tested.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PRETZELS: TIPS

Although this recipe is rather simple, there are a few considerations to make when creating these pretzel nibbles.

First, be sure to use part-skim, low-moisture mozzarella. The majority of pre-shredded mozzarella cheese packets will work, but make sure to verify. These pretzels will lose their chewy quality if there is too much moisture or fat in the dough.

Yeast is solely used for flavor. You don’t need to bother about letting the dough rise, and it doesn’t matter if the yeast is quick-rising or ordinary.

Lakanto Golden, which has a pleasant caramel-like flavour, is what I used. The sweetness is quite mild, but it definitely affect how the pretzels taste.

WHAT SALT WORKS BEST FOR PRETZELS?

The kind of salt you use has a MASSIVE impact on how well these pretzels turn out.
The salt used in pretzels is essentially normal salt that has been crushed into big granules. The grains break up and spread out evenly in your mouth as you chew.

If you want to make these pretzels without having to wait for an Amazon order, just use any coarse salt since pretzel salt can be difficult to acquire in most conventional grocery stores. The next time, just make sure to order the pretzel salt.

Topping Options

Here are some suggestions if you want to branch out a bit or don’t like salted pretzels:

Bake cinnamon sugar as suggested (minus the salt). After the pretzels have finished baking, spread them with melted butter and top them with a cinnamon-sugar mixture. You can dip them in some keto cream cheese icing for a nice treat!

Garlic Parmesan: After the pretzels have finished baking, brush them with melted butter and garlic powder. Add grated parmesan cheese on the top after that.
Everything Pretzels: Instead of salt, add a sprinkle of everything but the bagel spice.

CAN I MAKE THESE PIZZA BITS INTO REGULAR FULL-SIZE PIZZAS?

I do not advise forming these pretzel nibbles into conventional pretzel shapes. The overlapped dough won’t be able to bake completely before the rest of the pretzels burn because the overlapped dough is too dense.

Sticking with pretzel sticks is preferable if you want to produce larger pretzels.

READY TIME 15 minutes
TIME TO COOK 12 min.

EQUIPMENT

Pastry Brush, Parchment Paper, and Electric Mixer

INGREDIENTS

  • Low Moisture, Part-Skim Mozzarella, 2 cups shreds of cheese
  • Cream cheese, 1 ounce
  • 2 Eggs Split
  • 1 ½ cups Almond Meal
  • 1 teaspoon Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of low-carb sugar
  • ONE teaspoon baking soda
  • Pretzel Salt (garnish)

INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. A baking sheet should be lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and the oven should be preheated to 400 degrees F.
  2. The mozzarella cheese and the cream cheese should be combined in a big basin. Stirring after each one, heat cheeses in the microwave in THIRTY-second intervals(melted and easily combine).
  3. Add yeast, almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, and 1 egg (save the other for later). Combine each component thoroughly in the mixture. With an electric mixer, I find mixing to be the easiest.
  4. Four equal pieces of dough should be created. Roll each amount of dough into 13–14 equal pieces “broad parts Roll out the piece and cut it into 1-1 1/2 “portions.
  5. Onto the prepared baking sheet, arrange the cut parts, spacing them apart by about 1″. The remaining dough should be used again.
  6. In a small bowl, beat the remaining egg. The beaten egg should be applied to the pretzel pieces’ tops using a pastry brush before being dusted with pretzel salt.
  7. Bake(golden brown) in the preheated oven for TEN to TWELVE mins. Before servingTake them out of the oven. Let them to cool(three to five minutes).

 

NOTES

NOTE: The dough should not at anyway be sticky. After combining everything, if the dough is still extremely soft and sticky, add a small amount (1-2 tablespoons) of additional almond flour and knead until the dough is firm.
