Keto Pretzels – The Original Homemade Recipe

Welcome to the home of the original Keto Pretzels recipe.

You know Gerri’s Keto Soft Pretzels are good when so many are copying and palming them off as their own.

Our Keto Pretzels are soft and chewy with a beautiful yeasty aroma of freshly baked bread. You see, our Gerri is a genuine, bona fide, chef and specialises in simplifying recipes for “everyone”. These keto pretzels aren’t her only original creations either.

Note: The yeast in this keto pretzel recipe is purely for the “aroma” no other reason after all smell is a sense imperative to taste!

Gerri created these keto soft pretzels for Oktoberfest in 2012 Then shared with us here for our recipes list for the 2016 event.

We’re doing our bit to keep the celebrations healthy and with our keto pretzels recipe.

Our recipe makes 12 pretzels per serve is one keto soft pretzel as reflected in the nutritional information.

The Original Keto Soft Pretzels

Our keto low-carb soft pretzels are best eaten on the day of cooking. If there are any pretzels left over, store them in the fridge for a keto snack for later.

Your keto soft pretzels can easily be refreshed. Heat them in the oven for 5 minutes.

Put the pretzels in a 170C/340F oven to crisp up the outside and soften the inside. Alternatively, 30 seconds in the microwave if you like them soft.

NOTE: The low carb soft pretzel dough is very sticky. I have found it easiest to roll the dough out on a smooth, clean bench top. Or plastic cutting board and wearing food safe gloves will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.

How To Make Soft Pretzels Keto:

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  2. In a microwave safe dish, place the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese and microwave in 30 sec increments, stirring in between, until fully melted and almost liquid.
  3. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and allow it to sit and activate for 2 minutes.
  4. In your stand mixer (using the dough hook attachment), place the almond meal 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 the stand mixer and allow it to knead the 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 and give a little space with side as the pretzels will rise.
  9. Brush the pretzels with the remaining butter and sprinkle with pretzel salt.
  10. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  11. When the pretzels are golden brown, remove them from the oven. Don’t burn your fingers trying to eat them immediately.

If you’re looking for a sweet version of these keto pretzels try our glazed pretzels. Our glazed pretzels taste like a low-carb doughnut.
