  • 1/4 ounce packet active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water, follow yeast packet directions for water temperature. It is usually around 110°
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour - for kneading
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Add the active dry yeast to the warm water and stir. Let set for about 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl add the 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, baking soda, brown sugar and salt. Mix together.
  • Add the oil and the water/yeast mixture. Mix well. It will be sticky.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic adding flour as needed. This should only take a couple of minutes.
  • Divide the dough into fourths and then roll out into a cigar shape that is about 15” to 17” long. Cut each length into 1” pieces. Place the pieces on the prepared baking sheet so that they do not touch.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° while the pretzel pieces are resting and then bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Test a piece and see if the dough is done on the inside. Take out of the oven and let cool on the baking sheet.


Keep in an airtight container for about 2 to 3 days. If they are not kept in a airtight container they can become a bit harder. They will soften up again if microwaved for a very few seconds.
You can freeze the pretzels for about a month. They will become a bit harder. You can soften the pretzels, after defrosting, in a microwave for a few seconds.
