  • 1/4 cup warm milk

  • 1/3 cup sugar, divided

  • 1 package instant dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 (5.3-oz.) container vanilla Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups scooped and lightly packed Blue Diamond Almond Flour, Finely Sifted

  • 3/4 cup gluten free all-purpose baking flour

  • 1/2 cup oats

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Boiling liquid:

  • Water

  • 2 tablespoons baking soda

  • Topping:

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • Coarse raw sugar


  1. 1

    Place milk in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle about a tablespoon of the sugar and yeast over the top. Let stand for 5 minutes or until yeast starts to bubble a little.

  2. 2

    Add remaining sugar, eggs, yogurt and vanilla and mix well. Using a dough hook, beat in remaining ingredients (mixture will be sticky).

  3. 3

    Dust a board heavily with both flours and knead until a smooth dough forms, adding additional flours if needed. Place in a lightly buttered bowl and turn to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap or a dish towel and let rise in a warm spot for 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each into a 16-inch long piece and twist into pretzel shapes. Let stand for 15 minutes more.

  5. 5

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil and stir in baking soda. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and add a generous sprinkle of coarse sugar. Drop pretzels a few at a time into boiling water cooking for 15 seconds on each side. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on baking sheet.

  6. 6

    Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake for 15 minutes or until pretzels are golden brown.
