Soft, chewy, low carb and full of flavor! These Keto Cinnamon Pretzels are the perfect snack, especially when you’re craving something sweet!
Keto Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels
Living in Florida, Dylan and I love to go to Disney! When we have some free time, we really enjoy being able to walk around the parks and soak in the atmosphere.
There are three things that are great about Disney: the rides, the shows, and most of all, the food! Other than a massive turkey leg, there is no other food that screams “theme park!!!” more than a soft pretzel.
Other than tasting great, I think the best part about a soft pretzel is its smell! It’s always the smell that gets me when I walk by that stand that’s selling pretzels. Especially the cinnamon pretzels!
But, since traditional soft pretzels are obviously not a part of our low carb lifestyle, we can no longer indulge in the goodness that is a soft pretzel. At least, not until now!
I have always preferred Gluten Free Soft Pretzel Baking Mix as opposed to the traditional. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both delicious, but nothing beats a warm, soft pretzel topped with cinnamon-sugar, dipped in a sweet cream cheese. And when I say nothing, I mean nothing.
What Is Fat Head Dough?
Fat Head dough is the key to making any low carb “bread”, and these pretzels are no exception.
Fat Head dough is used to make low carb pizza, bread, calzones, rolls, pigs in a blanket, and everything in between. The best part about Fat Head dough is that it’s suuupperr easy to make (oh, and that it tastes amazing!!).
All you’ll need are a few ingredients that I’m sure you already have (these ingredients are listed below).
The key to Fat Head dough is mozzarella cheese.
Mozzarella gives the dough its weight, texture and feel. I know, bread made out of mozzarella might sound sort of strange, but trust me, it is great! We do, however, add coconut flour to the dough which gives the dough a better taste than the traditional fat head dough recipe.
What To Dip These In:
If you’re looking for an easy cream cheese dip for these, check out the cream frosting that we used to create our Chewy Keto Coconut Cookies. You could easily use this frosting as a dip for these pretzels!
This frosting is sweet and gives these pretzels a little extra moisture. I would especially recommend that you make the dip if you plan on saving some keto pretzels for later. Like most “breads,” these pretzels can get a little dry if kept for more than a couple of days.
How To Make These Keto Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels:
- Gather all ingredients for dough: Mozzarella cheese, almond flour, egg, coconut flour, and cream cheese.
- The first step in making these yummy pretzels is to create your Fat Head dough. To do this, place your mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.Then, stir the mixture and microwave again for another 30 seconds.
- After the cream cheese and mozzarella have melted, add in your beaten egg and almond flour and coconut flour. Mix together (you may need to use your hands).
- Now that you’ve created your dough, separate it into five sections and begin to form your pretzels and then place them on a baking sheet.
Tip: The easiest way to do this is to roll each portion of dough into one long cylinder. Then, with the dough, make a heart shape with a round bottom. Ta-da! Pretzels.
Create Glaze And Cinnamon Sugar Coating
- After you’ve shaped your pretzels, bake them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
- While your pretzels are baking, you’ll want to make your cinnamon glaze. To do this, first melt your coconut oil and butter in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Then, in a separate bowl, mix together your sweetener and cinnamon.
- After your pretzels have come out of the oven and have cooled for a couple of minutes, brush them with the coconut and butter and dip coat them in cinnamon and sweetener.
- Finally, the end result.. a delicious cinnamon sugar pretzel.. Keto style!
