Happy Friday everyone! It’s “Friday Treats Friday” and we have homemade pretzels and cheese this week! First, let me just tell you that this recipe smells soooooo good! It is like having an apple pie baking in your oven. I just had to taste the pretzel right out of the oven and although a little bland for me, Jake and Maggie really enjoyed their snack. They are the smartest pups and have come to realize that when I take treats over to a certain spot in my kitchen to be photographed, that means they are getting something yummy. These pretzels are slightly crispy on the outside and doughy in the middle. I was thinking of making an apple pie for your sweet pups this week but found this recipe on Proud Dog Mom and had to try it. I followed to a “T” but added cheese for more crisp and flavor, used less carrots, and more applesauce (unsweetened) than what the recipe calls for. So I guess I didn’t follow it to a “T” but you know what I mean :-). Stay tuned for next “Friday Treats Friday” because I’m making an apple pie for Jake and Maggie from scratch!!!
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour I used Bob Mills flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour I used Bob Mills flour
- 1 egg, large I used Vital Farms eggs
- 1/2 cup applesauce I used 1 cup
- 1/4 cup finely grated carrot, lighly measured (not packed) I used 4 baby carrots and shredded right into the bowl
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, slightly heaping I added directly from jar right into the recipe
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside for later.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oat and coconut flour.
- Add remaining wet ingredients and stir together.
- Knead the dough into a ball. The dough should have a play doh-like consistency. If too dry, add a tiny bit more coconut oil. If too wet, let rest on the corner for about 4 minutes before shaping into pretzels.
- Pinch a piece of dough and use your hands to roll into a long rope about 1/4 inch thick.
- Transport to sheet pans, shape into a "U", cross, twist, and fold each piece to form the pretzel.
- The pretzels will not spread but make sure they do not touch to avoid sticking together.
- Bake for 20 minutes on one side
- Turn over and bake for 5-10 minutes more. I only baked for 5 minutes more.
- Store in air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
