Yeast Free Paleo Pretzels
10 cups water
⅔ cup baking soda
2 cups Otto’s cassava flour (no subs)
1½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon Redmond Real salt
¼ cup honey
1½ cups full fat coconut milk buttermilk*
1-2 egg yolks whisked with a splash of water ~ for brushing
Redmond Kosher salt for sprinkling on pretzel
coconut oil for parchment paper
1. Pre-heat oven to 400° …in a large stock pot bring 10 cups of water and ⅔ cup baking soda to a boil.
2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and coat with coconut oil.
3. While water comes to a boil, in med bowl mix Otto’s, 1½ teaspoon baking soda and salt together and in a separate bowl whisk together honey and coconut milk buttermilk until well combined.
4. Pour wet ingredients into flour mixture and work together til a sticky dough comes together…you may need to use a dusting of Otto’s to make it a nice smooth dough ball, just use a little at a time. Separate into 8 smaller balls.
5. Take 1 ball and roll into a long snake like log approximately 15-16″ long, shape into pretzel and pinch ends together…repeat with remaining dough balls.If you find that the dough dries out a bit by the time you get to the last few, simply add in a bit more coconut buttermilk and work it into the dough…you should be all good to continue rolling them out after that.
6. If water is boiling, turn heat off and remove from heat or turn gas off underneath…carefully place one pretzel at a time into hot water for 10 seconds, remove with a flat slotted spoon or flat spatula and place on a baking sheet…repeat with remaining pretzels/bites/twists.
7. After all of them are dunked, use a pastry brush and give all of them a good egg wash, and sprinkle liberally with kosher salt.
8. Bake for 13-15 minutes, let cool slightly before pulling apart and enjoying!! After you bake them up, if the egg wash has created a little edge around the pretzels you can simply use a sharp knife to trim it off or use kitchen shears.
*to make coconut butter milk, add 1 T apple cider vinegar to 1 c of coconut milk, let it set for 5 minutes and you’re good to go.
