Keto Pretzel Bites#BreadBakers

These Keto Pretzel Bites, are so addictive, there’s something about their density and dough-ness mixed with some salty crunch that lights up the taste buds and you can't stop eating. Even before I took a pic half of them were over.
This recipe is a Fat Head style dough that can be made for pizza crust, rolls and more, but it's done in such a way that distinctly gives it the identifiable pretzel flavor that makes it so much more than simply "bread."

1½ Cups Whole Milk Mozzarella - shredded
1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese - softened
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Almond Flour
½ Tablespoon Baking Powder
½ Tablespoon Coarse Salt Kosher or Sea Salt - optional
1 Egg - beaten - to brush the pretzels


Preheat oven to 190°C & Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
Add shredded mozzarella and cream cheese to a large microwave-safe bowl. Fully cover the cream cheese with mozzarella. Melt cheeses in the microwave on high in 30 second intervals. Stir after each 30 seconds and continue cooking until cheeses are completely melted and form a uniform cheese dough. This should take around 1-1½ minutes total. Do not try to melt it all at once.
In a small bowl, whisk together almond flour and baking powder. Set aside.
Add to cheese, eggs and almond flour mixture mix it well to form a dough. The dough will be quite sticky, which is normal.
Wrap a cutting board with plastic wrap or a silicon mat. This will keep the dough from sticking to the board. Lightly coat your hands with oil and divide dough into equal parts. 
Roll each dough into long pieces about 1 inch thick.
Using a sharp knife, slice dough into 3/4 inch wide pieces. 
Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush surface of pretzel bites with egg wash. 
Bake pretzels for about 12 minutes in the middle rack of your oven, or until pretzels are a light golden brown. Set your oven to a low broil and cook for about 2 minutes. 
This will crisp up the exterior of the pretzel. Watch your oven carefully during these 2 minutes as you don’t want to burn or overcook your pretzels.
These are so addictive, you can't stop eating them.

  1. Thank you for sharing a keto version of this recipe.

  2. I've only had fathead dough once before and it's been a while, but I can see how these would be addictive. They just look so poppable!

  3. Interest take on a "pretzel!" A cheese lovers' dream!
