I was making the 3 ingredient pretzel bites and halfway through the batch, I realized that they would be even better turned sweet.

So I whipped up another batch and instead of sea salt and butter, I dipped the pretzels into butter and rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mixture.

They were so good.

Ingredients Needed

The ingredients are easy to come by as they’re pantry staples.

The greek yogurt is plain 0% Greek yogurt (fat free greek yogurt). This recipe does not use self-rising flour as most simple homemade pretzels do, instead, I use a rising agent (baking powder).

There’s no yeast, no fuss, it’s a beginner recipe that’s a sure-fire hit.

  • Baking powder
  • 0% plain greek yogurt

Baking Soda Bath

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

The instructions are simple.

mixing dough in a stand mixer
mixing the pretzel dough together in a stand mixer

Add the ingredients to a stand mixer and mix everything together until it forms a ball. I used the dough hook attachment on the stand mixer (as I do with all bread). If you have a hand mixer, you can use the dough hook that came with that.

Roll the ball into a dough, and divide it into four. Take out one section and set aside the rest.

making pretzels into long rolls of dough
Rolled out pretzel dough.

Using your hands roll the dough out until long. Remember when you used to play with playdough and make snakes as a kid? Like that.

Pretzel bites cut up from the dough.

Cut the dough into little sections. They look like little pillows, cut 7-9 pillows out of each roll.

Dip each “pillow” into the baking soda bath, and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.

You can store the cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites in an airtight container and leave them on the counter for a few days.

They do dry out fast, so I would eat them within 1 – 2 days.

Dessert Dips to Serve With
