Almost every time we post a recipe, there are people who ask for a substitute for some ingredient because their child has a food allergy. We really feel for parents of children with food allergies, because it is hard enough to feed your kids without having to restrict all sorts of foods! I think we have finally found a recipe that is allergy free! This Soft Pretzel Bites Recipe is gluten, soy, egg, dairy, nut, and corn free! (If I am missing a food allergy I apologize, but these are the most common allergies we get comments about)
Depending on your allergy, you can make these a couple of different ways.
Option 1: Gluten Free. Instead of using regular flour, use your favorite gluten free flour or flour blend. I personally used Bob’s Red Mill to make these and thought they turned out great. If you have a tree nut or soy allergy you may not want to use this brand. On the label it states” Manufactured in a facility that also uses tree nuts and soy.”
Option 2: Soy, Dairy, Egg, Nut and Corn Free. Follow the regular recipe!
Mix your dough according to the directions in the recipe. Roll it out into a rope and cut into bite-size pieces. Boil for 30 seconds in your baking soda ‘bath’. Drain as best your can and then baking for 10-12 minutes. Voila!!
Hot out of the oven, these are slightly crunchy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside. And you won’t have to worry about letting your kids eat them because of an allergy! Enjoy!
