NOTE: The keto soft pretzel dough is very sticky. It is easiest to roll the dough out on a plastic cutting board wearing food-safe gloves to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.

Our keto low-carb soft pretzels are best eaten on the day of cooking. If there are any pretzels leftover, store them in the fridge for 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Your keto soft pretzels can easily be refreshed just 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.

How to make Keto Soft Pretzels

The best bit about making these soft pretzels is the aroma as they bake in the oven.

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  2. Place the yeast, inulin, and warm water in a bowl. Mix well and set aside to proof for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the almond flour and xanthan gum. Mix well and set aside
  4. Place a nonstick saucepan over medium-low heat and add the mozzarella and cream cheese. Keep a close eye on it as it melts, stirring frequently to prevent browning. Heat until the cheese is thick and pourable.
  5. Add the proofed yeast and melted cheese to the almond flour, mix for 1 minute before adding the eggs.
  6. Mix until a smooth and sticky dough has formed. I recommend putting on food-safe gloves and mixing by hand. Leave to sit for 5 minutes to rest.
  7. Split the dough into quarters, and each quarter into 3 pieces, so that you have 12 balls. The dough is easiest to work with while it is warm and whilst wearing food-safe gloves.
  8. Roll each ball into a long skinny log and twist it into a pretzel shape. Place on a lined cookie sheet and give a little space with the side as the pretzels will rise.
  9. Brush the pretzels with 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.
  12. Leave them to cool for 5 minutes before enjoying.

  1. Hi, I can’t wait to try these. I have all the ingredients except.. pretzel salt. I can’t find that anywhere. I guess I could use regular salt but it just wouldn’t be the same.

    • Hi Mary,

      Pretzel salt is incredibly difficult to find! We have used flaked sea salt before and found it works well as a substitute.

  2. Hi,
    was this recipe recently updated?
    We used to make these and this time it seems the recipe looks different and also the end result differs.
    If so, do you keep track of changes ? cause obviously I didn’t 🙁 – this is an old pin we keep returning to.
    They are super delicious and a special treat and would love to be able to make them again in the formula that never failed us before.
    Thank you very much for the help.

    • Hi Raluca,

      Yes, the recipe was updated in July – along with a video being added. The only change in the ingredients was the addition of inulin to help the yeast rise for fluffier pretzels – I left a note under the recipe card in the post, just in case the change upset anyone! The previous recipe also included using a stand mixer, but it was not essential to use so I removed it from the method, and we added the weights of the ingredients alongside the original cup measurements.
      I hope that helps 🙂

    • Hi Marianne,

      The inulin is the “food” for the yeast that helps the bread rise, so I don’t recommend leaving it out. There are no low carb substitutes for inulin.
