Instructions

  • Mix the heated water and coconut sugar in a medium bowl. Add the yeast, then stir and wait 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, combine the eggs, baking powder, xanthan gum (if using), and almond flour in a food processor.
  • Add the yeast to the food processor and pulse until smooth once it has finished proving and reached a volume of 1/2 cup (118 mL).
  • The shredded mozzarella and cream cheese should be combined in a third medium bowl. Heat until melted in a double boiler on the stove or in the microwave. Stir until homogeneous and smooth.
  • Place the cheese on the blade of the food processor as you add the cheeses. Process until a consistent dough develops, scraping the sides as necessary with a spatula.
  • The dough should be chilled for 15 to 20 minutes in the refrigerator so that it is workable.
  • Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees C). Using parchment paper, line a large baking sheet.
  • Form the dough into a ball using greased hands. Like a pie, divide it into 6 equal pieces. Make a long log, about 18 inches (46 cm) long, out of each segment. Take one pretzel end, loop it around, and cross it at the bottom to form a twist. Repeat with the second end, crossing it over the previous one. Place the baking sheet there. Continue by using the remaining dough pieces.
  • Sprinkle the pretzels with coarse sea salt, then softly press.
  • 10 to 12 minutes of baking, or until browned.
