KETO Pretzels

Pretzel-MyKetoKitchen (1)Tweaked this pretzel recipe for more of a rise.  Don’t cha just love a hot pretzel at the park with mustard?  Well this recipe will inspire you to go to the ballpark with a private stash of goodies for the team!  This low carb Pretzel is soft and chewy with a beautiful yeasty aroma of freshly baked bread, you can also add Stevia instead of salt for a donut.

INGREDIENTS FOR 12 PRETZELS

  • 3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of Philly cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of Coconut flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons of Xanthan Gum (at SuperLake in Mexico)
  • 3 Eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons of dried yeast  ( 1 sachet )
  • 2 tablespoons of Warm Water
  • 2 tablespoons of Butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt

DIRECTIONS FOR BAKING Pretzels or the recipe as Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  2. Use a microwave dish to melt mozzarella cheese and philly cheese. 30 second increments, stir, 30 more seconds until almost liquid.
  3. Dissolve yeast in 2 tbl warm water + 1/4 tsp Stevia, to activate for 2 minutes.
  4. Use a mixer bowl, place the coconut flour and xanthum gum and mix well.
  5. Add the eggs, yeast mixture and 1 tablespoon of the melted butter and mix well.
  6. Add the hot melted cheese to Mixing bowl, knead dough until all the ingredients are fully combined. Around 5-10 minutes.
  7. Split the dough into 12 balls. The dough is easiest to work with while it is warm.
  8. Roll each ball into a long skinny log and twist into a pretzel shape. Place on a lined cookie sheet, give a little space with side as the pretzels will rise.
  9. Brush the pretzels with the remaining butter and sprinkle with salt.
  10. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  11. When the pretzels are golden brown, remove them from the oven. .

Magnesium –Citrate  THIRD 300-500mg daily – necessary to incorporate regardless of diet cuz humans cannot get enough from food or drink anymore. (Amazon)
