Ingredients:

For the Pretzel Dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg

For Pretzel Coating:

  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 1 tbsp coarse sea salt or pretzel salt

For Dipping Sauce (optional):

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt and Mix: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together. You can do this in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it’s completely melted. Stir well to combine.
  3. Form the Dough: In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour and baking powder. Mix in the egg and the melted cheese mixture until a dough forms. You might need to use your hands to knead the dough to ensure it’s well combined.
  4. Divide the Dough: Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.
  5. Roll and Shape: Take each portion of dough and roll it into a long rope, about 18 inches long. Shape the rope into a pretzel shape, pressing the ends to the center of the rope to secure them. Place each pretzel on the baking sheet that has been prepared.
  6. Egg Wash: In a small bowl, beat one egg to make an egg wash. Brush the egg wash over each pretzel.
  7. Salt the Pretzels: Sprinkle coarse sea salt or pretzel salt over the pretzels.
  8. Bake: Bake the pretzels in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  9. Make the Dipping Sauce (optional): While the pretzels are baking, you can prepare the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  10. Serve: Once the pretzels are done baking, let them cool for a few minutes before serving. You can enjoy them on their own or with the dipping sauce.

Nutrition Note:
These keto soft pretzels are low in carbs and high in fats, making them a suitable option for those following a ketogenic diet. They are a great snack or appetizer for when you’re craving a classic pretzel taste without the extra carbs.

These pretzels are rich in healthy fats from almond flour and cheese, and they also provide a decent amount of protein. The dipping sauce is optional, but it adds extra flavor and creaminess without a significant increase in carbs.

Remember that the nutrition values are approximate and can vary depending on the specific ingredients you use. Enjoy your homemade keto soft pretzels guilt-free!
