  Low Carb Luxury Recipe!

    Low Carb
Soft Pretzels

Reminder: This is a Specialty Ingredient Recipe.
It requires pre-packaged items as outlined below.

Lora Brody products are available from Low Carb Outfitters.
Keto brand items are available from Low Carb Outfitters
and The Low Carb Connoisseur.

  • 2 Tablespoons yeast
  • 1 can Keto French Bread Machine Mix
  • 2 Tablespoons Lora Brody's Dough Relaxer
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar *
  • 1 beaten egg at room temp mixed with
    1 cup (or more) warm (95-100 degree) water
  • 1 egg white mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • Coarse or kosher salt

Low Carb Soft Pretzels Place first 6 ingredients in bread machine in order proper for your bread machine. (In most add water first, then add premixed dry ingredients, then sprinkle yeast on top.) Program machine for dough, basic dough or manual cycle and press start. Check dough after first few minutes of first knead cycle and add more water if necessary to form soft supple ball.

At end of kneading cycle, transfer dough to lightly floured work surface (flour surface with oat flour or Atkins-type bake mix.) Form dough into ball and cover with clean kitchen towel. Let rest in warm place until dough rises slightly, about 15 minutes.

Oil 2 heavy large baking sheets. Divide dough into 14 equal pieces. Shape each piece into 9- to 12-inch long rope. Let dough ropes relax several minutes so they will stretch completely. Form each rope into loose pretzel-shaped knot. Place pretzels on prepared baking sheet; cover with towel and let rise in warm draft-free area 30-45 minutes.

Brush tops of pretzels with egg white and sprinkle generously with coarse or kosher salt. Bake until deep golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before eating.

* REMEMBER: The sugar is consumed by the yeast and does not exist in the final product.

Makes 14 pretzels - 6 carbs each.
