Ingredients

Equipment

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prepare for baking.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup sweetener, 2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Stir the mixture until all ingredients are well incorporated.Almond flour being poured into a glass mixing bowl containing Greek yogurt to create pretzel stick dough.
  • Assess the dough’s consistency; it should be firm enough to form into sticks. If the dough is too sticky, gradually add more almond flour, a tablespoon at a time, until it reaches a kneadable, firm consistency.
  • Take a portion of the dough and roll it between your hands or on a clean surface to form a stick shape, about the thickness of a marker pen and approximately 4-5 inches long. Repeat with the remaining dough to form approximately 5 sticks.
  • Place the shaped pretzel sticks onto the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they are spaced out evenly.Raw cinnamon pretzel sticks neatly lined up on parchment paper, ready to be baked.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the sticks are firm to the touch and have turned a light golden brown. The exact time may vary, so keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.
  • While the pretzel sticks are baking, prepare the coating by melting 2 tbsp of butter in a small bowl. In another bowl, mix 2 tbsp of sweetener with 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
  • Once baked, remove the pretzel sticks from the oven and allow them to cool slightly until they can be handled safely.
  • Brush each pretzel stick with the melted butter, then roll them in the cinnamon-sweetener mixture until well coated.
  • Let the coated pretzel sticks cool completely on a wire rack before serving to allow the coating to set.A white plate filled with five freshly baked cinnamon pretzel sticks coated in a sweetener mixture.Hand dipping a cinnamon pretzel stick into a small bowl of creamy white dipping sauce.

  • Notes
    – Dough consistency is key; start with the initial almond flour amount and add more as needed until it’s firm and not sticky.
    – Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days for best freshness.
    – If preferred, a sugar-free powdered sweetener can be used for a finer coating texture.
    – Avoid over-kneading the dough to keep the pretzel sticks tender.
  • Tips
    – For uniform sticks, divide the dough equally before rolling.
    – Allow the pretzel sticks to cool completely before coating to ensure the butter and cinnamon-sweetener mixture adheres well.
    – Experiment with the thickness of the sticks to find your perfect crunch level; thinner sticks will be crunchier.
    – Use a silicone baking mat on the baking sheet for an easy release and consistent baking.
  • Variations/Modifications
    – Add a pinch of nutmeg or allspice to the dough for a spiced twist.
    – Dip half of each pretzel stick in sugar-free dark chocolate for a decadent touch.
