Vegan Soft Pretzel Bites.
100% Vegan... very surprising I know. I actually got this recipe online and changed it to make it vegan friendly. I wish I could eat these every day they are so tasty. I made these for movie night with friends. Half the batch I made with cinnamon sugar and the other half I made plain with a maple mystery dip. I recommend you try this out ASAP!
For this Recipe you need:
2 cups almond milk
1 1/2 tablespoons (2 packets) active dry yeast
6 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
5 to 5 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons fine salt
1/3 cup baking soda
3 cups warm water
Warm up the almond milk in the microwave for just about one and a half minutes. If it’s too hot it will kill the yeast.
Stir in the yeast and one tablespoon of the brown sugar and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Grab a large mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer and pour the mixture in it.
Add the butter and remaining sugar.
Add the flour about 1 cup at a time and the add the fine salt.
Knead for about 10 minutes with a stand mixer or by hand.
Put it in a greased bowl and cover with greased cling wrap.Let rise for 1 hour in a moist, warm place until doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 450º.
This is the fun part, punch down the dough and divide into 12-14 lumps.
Roll each piece with your hands to form a rope as thin as you can.
Combine the warm water and baking soda in a wide bowl.
Cut the dough into small pieces (bite size), then dip in the baking soda water.
Place on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse salt.
Bake for about 6-10 minutes or until golden tan.
Dip each homemade pretzel in the melted butter while hot.
From here you can add cinnamon sugar or make a mustard dip!
