I love to get a soft pretzel when I go to a sporting event. They are warm and salty and often sprinkled liberally with salt. Well being on the Weight Watchers program doesn’t mean I have to give up snacks like soft pretzels. You may have heard me raving here about 2 Ingredient Dough which I have used to make everything from bagels to pizza dough. Today I am sharing how to make these quick 2 Ingredient Dough Pretzels using that same dough recipe. So grab a cold beverage and sit right back and enjoy a guilt free warm pretzel. These pretzels are only 3 points! Be sure to also check out these Cheesy Biscuits with Two Ingredient Dough and these 2 Ingredient Dough Pretzel Bites.
2 Ingredient Dough Pretzels – Weight Watchers
The secret to these self rising flour pretzels is fat free Greek yogurt. Fat free Greek yogurt is 0 points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan and is one of the main ingredients in these pretzels. The crazy thing is that you cannot taste the yogurt at all in these pretzels. My favorite yogurt to use is Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt.
This greek yogurt pretzels recipe uses self rising flour which you can buy pre-made or make yourself. I share an easy self rising flour recipe here. This allows you to make these pretzels with no yeast and not having to wait for the dough to rise.
To make 2 homemade pretzels, combine 1/2 cup of self rising flour and 1/2 cup of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt in a bowl until a dough starts to form. If you just want to make 4 pretzels, just double the ingredients.
Knead the dough on a floured surface and divide into two equal parts. You will want to make sure that the two pieces of dough are of equal weight. This scale really comes in handy.
Roll each piece of dough into a 12-14 inch rope.
Form into a pretzel shape.
Beat an egg and brush it over the pretzels and sprinkle on coarse sea salt.
Bake and enjoy! I love these nonfat Greek yogurt pretzels while they are still somewhat warm with some spicy brown mustard. My kids like them as is – lightly warm and salted.
Each soft pretzel is 3 Weight Watchers points on the Freestyle plan.
