Sweet Cinnamon Almond Pretzels:

  • 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


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Coarse raw sugar



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

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

    Boiling Liquid

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and stir in baking soda. Preheat oven to 425°F.

    2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and add a generous sprinkle of coarse sugar.

    3. 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.


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