Introduction: Whole Wheat Pretzels

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but I …

With yeasty water, this creates soft pretzels. However, if you subs the water with yeast milk, pretzels would be much softer and yummier :) Either, this is a great whole wheat pretzels!

Step 1: Method

1 1/2 c water or milk (whole milk 3% would be best!)

1 tsp oil

1 envelope active dry yeast

2 tbsp honey

4 cups whole wheat flour (whole wheat pastry flour also awesome to use!)

1 tsp table salt

1 large egg, beaten

coarse salt

Heat water/milk either using microwave or stove top until lukewarm. Pour in oil, honey and yeast and stir to dissolve. Let stand until foamy, 10-15 mins

Mix flour and salt, make a well in center then pour in yeast mixture. Stir with wooden spoon, then knead until smooth.

Grease a bowl with oil roll dough inside the bowl, coating dough with oil. Let stand until doubled in size, 1 1/2 h

Preheat oven 400 F

Divide dough into about 8 portions and roll each into a long rope. Twist and form into pretzel as shown on pictures.

Place pretzels on a large ungreased baking sheet and brush with beaten egg then sprinkle with coarse salt

Bake for 20 mins

Enjoy :)

NOTE: I was told if you broil it for a second or two once baked, it would give nice brown color like storebought ones!
