- 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour plus 6 tablespoons for kneading
- ¾ cup white whole wheat flour

- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 tablespoons honey, maple syrup, or sugar
- pot of boiling water
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon oat milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a medium bowl, heat up the milk with sugar until just warmer than room temperature (not cold or hot). Add in the yeast and let it rest for 10 minutes until foamy.
Mix until a dough forms and rest for 30 minutes in a greased bowl.
Lightly flour surface with the remaining flour and knead the dough. Keep doing this until the dough no longer sticks to the counter, but DO NOT add so much that it becomes dry. You should only need about 6 tablespoons.
Divide the dough into 8 equal triangles and roll into thin strips.
Twist the strips into pretzel shapes.
Mix the boiling water and baking soda, and let the pretzels sit in the water for 30 seconds - 1 minute (no longer!). Place the pretzels on parchment paper and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.
Mix together the olive oil and milk, then brush on the pretzels. Add salt on top and bake for an additional 4-6 minutes. Enjoy!
