Healthy Copycat Auntie Annes Pretzel Bites

Your sweet tooth is calling and it needs some Auntie Anne’s pretzel bites! These little pretzel bites are seriously so good that you’ll have to stop yourself from eating them all. I made cinnamon sugar and salted ones. Which is your favorite??? Pair it with some cheese dip or icing dip!

Be sure to use self-rising flour for this recipe, it is the key. If you do not have self-rising flour, or are gluten free, try out my recipe below to make your own!

I use Swerve, typically, for my sugar replacement, but feel free to use whichever brand you like. Monk fruit sweetener works really well here too.

I make my bites a little small so they are truly bite sized. Plus, when they are smaller, they get a little more crisp. You can make them a little bigger, just adjust the cooking time and serving size.

Make sure you grease the baking sheet very well and most importantly, add the baking soda slowly!! It will bubble over if you do not go slow.

The whole recipe, for the pretzels, serves 6. Each dip recipe serves 3. So either double it, or make both.

If you prefer the cheese dip, don’t forget to order the secret ingredient, cheese powder!
