Basic low carb baking ingredients. If you haven’t used them before, get ready! You’re gonna be using them all the time!
Psyllium husk – this powder is almost pure fiber, which helps supports digestion, is a prebiotic, and helps make our bread, well, bready!
Kosher salt – this style of salt has larger crystals which we want as a topping on our low carb pretzels.
Tools To Make
Pretzels seem like such a special occasion dish, but they are super easy for anyone who’s craving them to make!
- Baking sheet – You need a plain old baking sheet for this low carb pretzels recipe. A rimless pan would be the easiest so you can lay your twisted pretzels flat.
- Parchment paper – Alert: this is not wax paper. This is silicone coated paper that will let your pretzels bake without sticking.
Now, I know traditional pretzels are dipped in boiling water before baking. This DOESN’T work with almond flour! This is why my almond flour pasta is pan-fried instead of boiled — Almond flour soaks up the water and falls apart.
Can You Freeze Them?
Yes! This dough is really soft, so I recommend baking them first, then freezing them in a single layer in an airtight container. Thaw in the fridge, and warm in the microwave or oven!
If you can keep yourself from ripping into the pillowy, soft-baked dough, I urge you to whip up one of these easy sauces. Slather them in low carb honey mustard (may be served with brats!) or dip them in low carb cheese sauce or some spicy low carb queso for a decadent snack!
- The original recipe has an egg wash and big crystal salt, but if you want, you can make a version to satisfy your sweet tooth! Try adding shavings of low carb chocolate or make a sugar free chocolate syrup for dipping!! Yummmmmm!
- This low carb pretzel dough is perfect for stuffing. Fill them with whatever fixins you can dream up before baking, or roll them out as crust for low carb pizza.
- This yummy, flavorful dough is good with literally any toppings. Sprinkle with low carb cheese, add sundried tomatoes, mix in rosemary and garlic and brush with butter. There’s really no wrong way to dress these up!
Now you have your low carb pretzels, ready for some more savory bread recipes?? These should keep you busy!

- Low Carb Nacho Cheese
- Preheat oven the 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine dry ingredients, in a large bowl.
- Add warm water (1 cup) and eggs (3). Stir until thoroughly combined.
- Use damp hands to divide the dough into 8 balls.
- Roll each ball between parchment paper and your hands into 10-13" long rope, making sure the rope is even in diameter.
- Twist each rope into a pretzel shape -- to do this, point the ends away from you to form a "U" shape. Then twist them, flip the twist and press the ends into the bottom of the "U".
- Place the pretzels on prepared baking sheet, and brush them with the whisked egg (1).
- Bake in preheated oven for 24-26 minutes. You'll know they're done once the tops are golden.
- Once slightly cooled, spray pretzels with cooking spray, or brush with oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt, and enjoy!
Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Almond Flour. Using fine-grained almond flour will yield the most "flour-like" results. My favorite brands are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands.
- Psyllium Husk. This recipe has ONLY been tested with NOW Psyllium Husk Powder. Some psyllium husk powders can turn baked goods into a blue-ish purple color, and they absorb liquids in varying amounts.
- Boiling the pretzels. Traditional pretzels are dipped in boiling water before baking. This DOESN'T work with almond flour and the pretzels will fall apart in the water.
