Soft Pretzel Recipe Anyone?
0

20 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I am having a MAJOR craving. You know those soft pretzels with the sea salt that you can buy at the grocery store or at concession stands??? I want one (gluten-free of course).

Today, I made a delicious loaf of banana bread, so I satisfied that craving...but I have no clue how to make soft pretzels.

Any thoughts???

-thanks and hugs- J :)

Edit: Just found a couple of recipes...has anyone tried one that turned out a success?

I just made this recipe below and it's fabulous! I had to change it slighty because the dough was way too dry and crumbly, it wouldn't roll without breaking--so I added 1 Tbsp oil and some water (approx 1/2-3/4 cup water, I'm not sure, I didn't measure). Let them cool 5-10 minutes after baking--the flavor is better than right out of the oven. I sprinkled them with salt. DH rolled one in a little butter (bad, I know), cinnamon, and sugar--tastes so good!

My DD's school is having soft pretzels as a snack tomorrow, and I am so excited that DD will have a soft pretzel, too. This was one of her favorite treats pre-diagnosis. I am just so happy because I never thought I would be able to make soft pretzels for her. Thank you, thank you for the recipe!

Thanks for bringing this thread back up! Soft pretzels were my dd's favorite treat too. We are currently trialling egg, so I can try this recipe!

The pretzels were fabulous last night, but the flavor and texture is not so good today. Microwaving didn't help, but toasting did. These are definitely best right out of the oven, but my DD did eat a whole pretzel at school today anyway. I froze the rest of them tonight, I plan to microwave and then toast them as needed.

When I was trying to make bagels following the recipe on the side of Pamela's Wheat Free Bread Mix, I also made a couple topped with sea salt and they tasted just like hot soft pretzels! So GOOD!! You could probably shape them into the pretzel shape too!

has anyone ever made a dough, or specifically a pretzel dough, without using Xanthan Gum? i see that the bacteria used to produce Xanthan Gum is fed corn so it can multiply and that people with corn allergies can experience problems when using it. My girlfriend is allergic to corn, soy, peanuts, and walnuts, along with wheat (but not gluten apparently).

I ran into this recipe on google after looking for wheat free pretzel recipes so she can share in the fun at our Oktoberfest party. i would appreciate anyone's input. Thanks!

I think that you could replace the xanthan gum with guar gum. It is a bean ground into a fine powder. A lot of people that can't tolerate the xanthan gum use guar gum. It's less expensive, too.

The guar gum was perfect! I now use that along with the brown rice, white rice or whatever flour we use. it even helped our gravy got extra thick! Thanks so much!

I just made these and they were very good. I also added water and oil prior to kneading, otherwise it was too powdery to stay together. They turned out really crunchy (slightly burnt) on the bottom though. Do you know how to avoid that? I just cooked them on a Teflon baking sheet

Thanks

So I made the recipe with this option but rolling the pretzels was so frustrating. adding the oil and water sorta helped but they were still crumbly. and when I added more water they were too sticky.

Any suggestions???? Help would be much appreciated!

    • After this post I will leave the subject of night blindness to others. Thanks to those who have offered suggestions and to Scott Adams for creating the forum. It is a fine website and I also like the review articles by Jefferson Adams.  I have suffered from patchy night blindness in the summer only for the last 8 years. The winter reprieve is now less complete but I was more or less free by the end of October 2016 and it started again in March 2017. A description of the scotomas was posted on July 4 2015 and the picture shows at the top the L and R eye scotomas on June 25 2017 at 4 a.m. Summer time, and below as they diminish just before dawn. The only problem they cause is reading the time at night. So far they are unexplained and still appear to be unique, though notme! GottaSki and Solandra all mention night vision troubles. I found a paper by Daniel Organisciak Ph.D:  Retinal Light Damage [2010] in which he mentions that experimental damage to the rodent retina by bright light affects the night vision rods particularly in the upper hemisphere of the eye = lower visual field, spares the periphery and may have fairly sharp boundaries. This sounds rather like my scotomas! I went through records to see if they were smaller after a cloudy day but there was no clear relationship. Topcon fundus photos etc today suggested that my eyes were normal for age. There must be someone out there with similar symptoms who has not noticed them!  
    • G'day and welcome Going gluten free helped but it didn't get rid of the SD. The best shampoo was Nizoral due to the Ketonacazole active ingredient. I also find dairy, especially milk is really not good for my skin. Check this thread out too: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/75943-seborrheic-dermatitis/#comment-977173  
    • I am always snacking on nuts, seeds, almond butter, and protein shakes, full fat, and high fiber foods help you stay full longer. I use vegan protein powders like NutraKey V-pro , MRM veggie elite , etc so no issues and dairy free. PS if you ever get those crazy random cravings or need foods I complied a comprehensive list of gluten-free food alternatives and where to get gluten free foods https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I discovered omelettes for breakfast after I went on the diet. It gave me a chance to incorporate more vegetables by stirfrying them first and using them as a filling. A 2 egg omelette with spinach, peppers and mushroom filling sets me up for the day and because of the protein in the eggs I didn't 'crash' at 11am and start snacking.  I switch the fillings each day, onions, avocados, kale, bacon etc. so it doesn't get boring. 
    • Hi!  Skin problems often are related to vitamin deficiencies.   http://www.podiatrytoday.com/when-vitamin-and-nutritional-deficiencies-cause-skin-and-nail-changes I found this article helpful.   Pellagra is a deficiency in niacin.  One symptom is a rash when exposed to sunlight.  You might be nutrient deficient.  A good B complex vitamin may help.
