Last month, I was invited to an Oktoberfest-themed potluck. When you think of Oktoberfest, you think of beer, lederhosen, and pretzels! You probably don’t think of gluten free pretzels though 😅 Well, for those of you who can’t have gluten or if like me, sometimes choose to go gluten-free, here is a Paleo Pretzels recipe for you to still join in on the fun!
Now, if you are looking for the exact same texture and taste from this recipe as you would from say, a Wetzel’s Pretzels, you might be disappointed. But these pretzels are actually really soft with just the right amount of chew and they pull apart like the real deal! They remind me of warm bagels, which are my faaav! Plus, these Paleo Pretzels have an extra garlic-y goodness. Check it out!
In 2015, I made a New Year’s resolution that I would go paleo for at least three months. It was a little rough, but I’m happy to say I succeeded with only a few minor slip ups! But boy, did that fried chicken on April 1st taste oh so good 😉
During those three months, I cooked and baked a lot. Paleo recipes are pretty easy to find nowadays but I especially enjoyed seeking out the desserts. Yes, technically most desserts are not paleo because of refined sugar and butter and those who are strict argue that certain replacement ingredients don’t really count. But, asking me to completely cut out dessert was just too much to handle! With all that said, I would call this brownie recipe paleo-friendly . It probably fits more in the gluten-free category but, it’s delicious and you should indulge a little!
