Make it Monday - Gluten free pretzels

Pretzels and mustard
When I work with clients, I ask what are the foods they want to eat. The request came for pretzels and mustard to dip the pretzels in.
I love google because I usually can find a dairy free, gluten free recipe for the different foods.
The pretzel request was no different.
I did make the pretzels. Shared them at my violin practice session. My friend loved the pretzels and also asked for the recipe too.
Low Carb Pretzels Recipe
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Yield: 18 pretzels
Calories: 70 kcal
Carbohydrate 2 grams
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon oil melted
1 teaspoon water
3 large pinches salt for topping
Beat 2 eggs, and set them aside.
Add the almond flour, salt and butter together. Add your eggs and mix together.
Add in one tablespoon of coconut flour and mix in well. Allow mixture to sit for about a minute for coconut flour to absorb. You are looking for the dough to be easily kneaded and will not stick to your hands. If it is still rather wet add 1 Tablespoon as a time of coconut flour until the dough reaches a play-doh like texture.
Let dough rest for about 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare a baking sheet by greasing it with oil or cooking spray.
Take a golf size ball of dough and roll the dough under your hands into a long skinny pencil and the length of a pencil. Very carefully lift the dough to the cookie sheet. Twist it carefully into the shape of a pretzel.
Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, take your remaining egg and beat in a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of water.
Remove the pretzels from the oven - Turn heat up to 400 degrees F
Turn all of pretzels over. Those bottoms will actually be the top of your pretzels. Lightly brush the beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse salt. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
