Quick Pretzels

These are really quick and delicious out of the oven - no need to wait for the dough to rise! They don't hold so well so eat them up quickly!!

Quick Pretzels


1 ½ cups warm water

1 package dry active yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

4 cups flour (2 white and 2 wheat if you prefer a healthier option!)

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten mixed with 1 Tablespoon water

coarse salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add yeast to water and sprinkle with the sugar.
  3. Wait until the yeast proofs and then add the flour and salt.
  4. Knead for 3 minutes. Dough will be smooth and elastic.
  5. Shape into pretzels of the same size.
  6. Put on a cookie sheet, brush with beaten egg and water mixture and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  7. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.
