Keto pretzel bites or low carb soft pretzels are easy to make and super tasty. Do you love auntie Anne’s mini pretzels of the same name? Then you would love these fathead dough replica. These come together in less time than the traditional ones and the taste.. oh my yum!
Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl at 30 seconds intervals until evenly melted takes about 90 secs in my microwave.Pour dry ingredients into the melted cheese and mix.
Pour in beaten cold eggs till a cohesive dough forms. Set aside for five minutes to let the dough rest.
Divide dough into 8 equal parts. Wet your hands then Roll each dough between your palms to form a log then roll between your hands and a parchment paper lined surface to elongate the logs. Repeat process till all logs have been rolled.With a sharp knife orbench scraper, cut logs across into 1 ½ inches (youl shoud get a little over 5 dozen pretzel bites)
Transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheets, brush pretzel bites with egg wash, then top off with sesame seeds. Bake for 12 mins.
Store bought mozzarella dough is tossed in corn starch and other ingredients that keep it non sticky and low moisture therefore Homemade shredded cheese will make the dough wetter than a dough made with store bought. To prevent this, add extra almond flour to this recipe or toss in some coconut flour(about 1 Tablespoon).
Good substitutes for cream cheese would be butter or sour cream. Because of the lower fat content of Greek yogurtI am not sure it would work here.
Wet hands make the dough easier to handle.
Using cold eggs reduces the chances of scrambling your eggs when add to the warm cheese.
