Let’s Make Some Mini Pretzel Bites!
Every time we take Bennett to the mall we HAVE to grab him some Pretzel Bites as we are walking around and he absolutely loves them. I have been trying to think of new snack ideas for Bennett to have at home and decided I wanted to make my own version of Pretzel bites and they were pretty easy and turned out so tasty. He devoured so many of the cinnamon bites I already need to make more! Keep reading to see how I made these!
- Two Cups All Purpose or Gluten Free Flour (I used @bobsredmill Gluten Free Flour in this video)
- One Tablespoon Yeast
- One and a Quarter Cup Warm Water
- One and a half teaspoons of Sugar
- One Teaspoon of Salt
- Two Tablespoons Melted Butter (I used Earth Balance)
- Toppings: Cinnamon Sugar or Salt
How To Make Them:
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Then in a large bowl add two cups of flour with one teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of sugar, mix and set aside.
Then in another bowl, add a tablespoon of yeast, a quarter cup of warm water and a good pinch of sugar.
Let sit for 10 minutes then combine with the flour. Lastly add one cup of warm water and mix together until a rough dough ball forms.
Next you can move it over to a cutting board or floured surface, knead it for five minutes then put into an oiled bowl, cover and let it rest for about 30-45 minutes.
Next you can divide the doughball up, rolling it with with your hands then diving it up into small pieces.
Take a pot and fill it with five cups of water and a quarter cup of baking soda, bringing that up to a boil then we will let the pretzel bites sit in the water for 30 seconds.
Next add the bites onto a baking sheet, add on lots of melted butter, I used earth balance to keep these dairy free. I added salt onto half of them and cinnamon sugar onto the other half.
Bake these for 15 minutes flipping them over halfway through. Once they are out of the oven, add more of the toppings. These were so good I will definitely be making these again soon!
