Directions

  • 1 Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; spray paper with cooking spray (without flour). In small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix flours, cornstarch, xanthan gum, guar gum and 1 teaspoon salt with whisk; set aside. In medium bowl, beat 3 eggs, the sugar and honey with electric mixer on medium speed 1 minute or until well blended. Add yeast mixture and flour mixture; beat 1 minute or until blended.
  • 3 Divide dough into 12 equal-size balls. On work surface sprinkled with additional garbanzo and fava flour, roll each ball into 13x3/4-inch rope. Carefully place ropes on cookie sheet; form into U shape and twist in middle. Spray tops of pretzels with cooking spray (without flour). Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • 4 Heat oven to 375°F. In 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, stir baking soda into water until dissolved. Heat to full rolling boil. Carefully place 1 pretzel at a time in water; boil 25 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon and return to cookie sheet. Brush tops of pretzels with egg, being careful not to fill openings with egg; sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • 5 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Place cooled pretzels individually in resealable food-storage plastic sandwich bags. Place those bags in gallon-size freezer plastic bag and store in the freezer. For a quick snack anytime, take a pretzel out of the freezer and reheat in a toaster oven about 5 to 7 minutes.

The xanthan gum combined with the guar gum makes a nicely textured baked item. If you don’t have guar gum, add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum in this recipe.
