View Full Version : Soft Pretzels

By request - here's my soft pretzel recipe. Enjoy!
This made 2 big ones
4 C sprouted wheat berries
1/2 C almond (soaked is best but I used unsoaked today and it was fine)
Just use your coffee grinder (or appliance of choice) to grind up the wheat berries and then the almonds into a "dough". Sprinkle in some sea salt - to taste, but the more, admittedly, the more pretzely it'll taste. Shape into pretzel form on a teflex sheet. Then sprinkle the top with some coarsley ground sea salt.
Dehydrate at 135 for 2 hours or until firm on one side (but not hard - you want it soft inside!) and flip onto an unlined tray. Turn it down to 105 and dehydrate for another hour or so - until desired firmness.
I served it up with a quick honey/mustard dipping sauce. As an alternative, you might add some agave to the dough mix and some cinnamon and make a sweet pretzel.

Thank you for sharing Beckla!
This looks and sounds delicious! I used to LOVE soft pretzels with nacho cheese soooo...I'm definitely gonna be making this with some of Alissa's Nacho Cheese (undehydrated)! Mmmm...can hardly wait!

Glad to share, gang.
Lucy - thanks for the list of condiments. I actually just used some spicy stone ground mustard with some raw honey for mine.

OMG! I saw those in the photos thread and it brought back a craving I used to get for these with yes... the cheddar cheese sauce or the nacho cheese sauce. woooh! I am going to have to try these!
Quick question Beckla, since I havent done any sprouts or "dough" stuff yet (day 8 all raw!) is this something I could do in my vita mix? I have such a tiny so called food processor I wouldnt be able to fit 4 cups of anything in, I am hoping I can do these in the vita mix.

UUMMMMM!!!! Thank you! I just reached into that picture and had meself a pretzel! LOL> If it were only that easy.
This looks delish. The simpler, the better. This recipie also looks cheap to make, comparatively.
I am making this tonite.
Thank you for sharing!
Well, I made them and they are very good! I was surprised they quelled my craving for bread and crackers, too.
I modified the recipie by using 2 1/2 cups unsoaked, dry wheat berries, and 3/4 cup almonds and about 1/2 cup of water.
The reason for the modification is because I had no sprouted wheat, and I wanted to make those pretzles right away!!

Green - great ideas all around. Glad it hit the spot.
Hrm... re: the Vitamix... anyone know? I don't have one. =(
I'm sure it'd be fine, though, based on what I've heard about those wonderful machines....

Can't wait to dig in...:D

This is a great bread recipie, too. The onion bread makes me feel sick smelling it in the dehydrator, so, I decided to try this recipie for bread. It works great for bread. I have used it for sandwiches with tasty results.
