Low Carb Carbalose Soft Pretzels

Carbalose Soft PretzelsCarbalose Soft PretzelsCarbalose Soft PretzelsCarbalose Soft PretzelsCarbalose Soft PretzelsCarbalose Soft PretzelsThere are quite a few recipes out there for soft pretzels made with all kinds of ingredients but these Carbalose Soft Pretzels are going to be the closest you get to the real deal.  I have also included a recipe for a delicious simple mustard dipping sauce and of course they can be eaten plain or with a plain spicy Dijon or German mustard. In my opinion, these are also a perfect low carb game day snack-and maybe…with a beer.  If you like these you may also like the Carbalose Italian Parmesan Garlic Knots.  Totally different but melt in your mouth good.  Sorry, I forgot to get a picture of the twisting but I’m guessing you know how to twist a rope.  As I look at the pretzels on the cooling rack I notice 3 are twisted one way and 3 the other way.  I think they call that being ambidextrous. My mother and I are both left-handed and she was ambidextrous too.

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Pretzels
  1. 1¼ C Carbalose Flour
  2. 2 T Wheat Gluten
  3. 2 T Coconut Flour
  4. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  5. ½ t Salt
  6. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  7. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  8. ½ C +3 T Warm Water
  9. 1 T Yeast
  10. ½ t Sugar
  11. 2 T Melted Coconut Oil
  12. 3 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  13. ¼ C Water
  14. 1½ t Baking Soda
  15. Kosher Salt
Mustard Sauce
  1. 6 T Dijon Mustard
  2. 2 T Just Like Sugar Brown (Or Your Favorite Sweetener)
Instructions
  1. Bloom yeast & sugar in warm water for 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Put first 7 ingredients into food processor.
  3. Add liquid Sucralose & olive oil to top of bloomed yeast and with machine running add to processor.
  4. Run processor for at least a minute and probably a little longer adding any additional water if/as needed 1 T at a time.
  5. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should hold together, have a loose consistency and should not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread.
  6. Form into a ball and put in un-greased bowl and cover with film for about 30 minutes until almost doubled.
  7. Divide dough into 6-2¼-2½ oz. pieces and form individual balls.
  8. Preheat oven to 425°.
  9. Working quickly take each ball and roll into a 9" rope. (See Picture) By the time they are all finished (resting) begin again and roll into 18” ropes.
  10. Shape ropes into a U on work table. Pick up ends, make a complete twist and bring around to bottom of U and secure. Place on sheet pan making sure they are shaped like a pretzel.
  11. Brush generously with soda water and sprinkle with Kosher salt.
  12. Allow to rise about 20 minutes and pop them into the oven until golden brown or about 14-15 minutes.

Notes
  1. Don’t over salt your pretzels as the soda water will add a salty twang of its own but...if you like salty pretzels by all means go for it.
  2. The pretzels look a little wrinkly and that is perfectly normal.
