A Healthy Pretzels Recipe

Dissolve in small bowl; let sit 10 minutes:

1 Tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon oil (we use coconut oil)

In separate bowl, mix:

3 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Flakes o' Gold or Ground Premium Gold Flaxseed
1/4 cup sugar (if you like less sugar like we do, use 1-2 Tablespoon sugar)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients until sticky. You want your dough to stick to your fingers, this will make your bread perfect (and not dry tasting).

Knead dough for about 25-30 turns -the goal is to get the yeast throughout the dough and to get it working, so that it will rise well.

Place the dough in a oiled bowl -we use a little flax oil and cover the dough and let it sit in the bowl.

-Let it sit a warm place -near oven or stove if you are cooking... this works perfect -or wherever -it may take longer to rise if it is not as warm.

Let the soft pretzels dough double in size.

After the dough has risen, knead gently in the bowl -add a little oil to your hands before you knead -this helps the stickiness.

Shape into pretzels:
Roll dough out to ~ 12-18 inch ~1/4 inch wide.
Make dough into a u shape. Cross the ends of the dough and twist twice.
Pull the ends of the dough up and over the circle shape at the top.

When you have finished shaping the dough into pretzels, heat a pan of water, place 1-3 pretzels at a time into hot water and remove them once they float.

Place on well-greased cookie sheet -or on well greased cast iron pans.
Sprinkle with sea salt or rock salt (optional).

Bake for 10-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
When done, remove the homemade soft pretzels from pan and cool on wire rack or plate.

There are many ways you can eat pretzels:

Dip in mustard,
Brush with butter and sprinkle homemade soft pretzels with cinnamon sugar or salt.
Or Dip in Honey-butter.

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."
-- Peter W.

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
