I ate the 6th pretzel from this photo. Sorry. These are crazy good, doughy, salty soft pretzels. They’re made with Cassava Flour (I used Otto’s Cassava Flour) aka yuca, a root vegetable, which means they’re grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free.
Cassava is probably the closest (healthy) alternative flour to wheat in terms of taste and texture, so it can replace crappy enriched wheat flour in many classic recipes.
Note: these are still basically pure carbs though, so don’t overdue it just because they’re made from vegetables… haha 🙂
Grain-Free Soft Pretzels
*Learn from my mistakes: I definitely went a little crazy and brushed way too much egg-wash onto these and then maybe left them in the oven a few minutes too long (25 minutes). Go easier on the egg wash than I did (do not drown them, brush a light coat) and remove them when they're golden brown (a little lighter than they are in my photos).
