Guys Pretzel Twists

Submitted by: SHELBSYD

Introduction

I saw this in the Food Network Magazine and I had to calculate it out, not to bad for a pretzel, under 100 calories, but can you eat just one? Add other toppings or stuff with your favorite goodies.

Ingredients

    1.5 Tbsp. of dry active yeast
    1 Tbsp. agave nectar
    2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
    2 3/4 cups of all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    1 tsp of sea salt
    2 large eggs

    Course salt or other toppings

Directions

1. Mix 1/2 cups of warm water (110 - 115 degrees), the yeast & agave in a bowl. Set aside 5 minutes.

2. In a food processor fitted with the dough blade, pulse the whole-wheat flour, 2 cups of all purpose flour and sea salt. Add 1 egg and the yeast mixture and pulse for 10 second intervals until dough come together, about 3 pulses. Turn out onto a floured board. Knead 10 to 12 times, adding up to 3/4 cup more flour if the dough is too sticky. Cut the dough into 4 equals portions; cover with a clean towel.

3. On a floured board, roll out one piece of dough into 14 x 11 inch rectangle, 1/4 inch thick, with a shorter side facing you.

4. To make plain pretzels, cut the dough rectangle into seven 11 x 2" strips.

5. One at a time, pinch the cut long edges of each strip together and roll into a 12" rope with your hands. Transfer the rope to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Grab the ends and bring them towards each other, forming a "U" shape, then cross the left end over the right end to make pretzel shape. Cross the left end over the right again to make a twist in the middle. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the pretzels 3" apart. Set aside for 10 - 15 minutes; preheat oven to 475 degrees.

6. Beat the remaining egg in a bowl; brush the pretzels with egg; sprinkle with salt or other toppings. Bake 16 to 18 minutes.
