Ingredients
 
 

For Pretzel Bites

  • 1 ½ cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 ¼ cups water
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 egg

For Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).
  • Add the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt to a bowl and mix it until it becomes crumbly in texture.
  • Use your hands to knead the dough for a few minutes until it starts to come together into a ball.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on a surface and slice the dough into 4 sections. Roll out each section into a long log about ½ inch thick.
  • Use a knife to slice the log into small bite-size pieces.
  • Add the baking soda into a small saucepan with boiling water. Once the baking soda is dissolved and the water is boiling, quickly add in the bites, a few pieces at a time, and let them sit for about 20 seconds (no more than 25 seconds). Use a slotted spoon to remove them, shake off the excess water, and place them onto a parchment paper-lined pan.
  • Let the bites cool for a few minutes. Whisk together the egg and one tablespoon of water to form the egg wash. Brush a light layer onto each piece.
  • Bake at the bites for 12-14 minutes, or until the bites are golden brown in color. Let them cool.
  • If you choose to coat the bites in cinnamon sugar, melt the butter and combine the cinnamon and sugar together until it is well combined. Dip each bite in the melted butter then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Notes

  • You can make these pretzels in any size or shape you’d like! You can make them into larger-sized strips for a younger child, or you can twist them into the traditional pretzel shape!
  • I recommend coating with toppings right before serving. If you are planning to store some, I recommend storing them plain and then coating them with toppings when ready to serve.
  • The baking soda step may be omitted, but I highly recommend including it since it gives the bites that authentic pretzel texture and taste! Do not boil the bites for more than 20 seconds because the baking soda taste will linger on the bites and affect the overall taste.
  • Keep a close eye on the bites as they bake as oven temps vary. You may turn the bites over halfway if you’d like for even browning on both sides.
