Whole Wheat Pretzels image

I can only imagine that these are better for you than what the pretzel vendors churn out in the malls. ;) I like to enjoy them with garlic-horseradish mustard and a tall, dark beer. Hmmm, suppose then that circumnavigates the whole 'better for you thing'...

These pretzels were just okay. They were a bit dry and not very flavorful.

I had a hard time getting the dough to come together, but once I did, the pretzels turned out great! They were soft, chewy, and had a nice golden brown color.

These pretzels were a bit too doughy for my taste, but they still had a good flavor. I think I might try baking them for a few minutes longer next time.

I'm not a huge fan of pretzels, but these were actually really good! The dough was easy to work with and the pretzels baked up perfectly. They were soft and chewy on the inside and had a nice crispy crust.

I've made these pretzels several times now and they are always a hit! They are so easy to make and they taste amazing. I love that they are whole wheat, so they are a healthier option than traditional pretzels.

These pretzels turned out amazing! The dough was easy to work with and the baking soda bath gave them a beautiful golden brown color. They were soft and chewy on the inside and had a slightly crispy exterior. I will definitely be making these again!
