Ready in under 30 minutes, 3 Ingredient Pretzel Bites are a perfect crowd pleasing snack when you need something quick, easy, and delicious!
When you think about making homemade pretzels, I'm sure you think of yeast and boiling the pretzels, but not so much! These are easy to make and no need to wait for the dough to be ready to bake!
I love baking with self rising flour! It can make delicious pancakes with self-rising flour, waffles with self-rising flour, chocolate chip cookies with self-rising flour, and banana bread with self-rising flour!
What's In These Pretzel Bites?
Three ingredients, that's it! Really! This type of recipe was created by Weight Watchers and has so many different varieties! You can make this recipe into bagels, pizza dough, or even cinnamon rolls!
Self rising flour- Self rising flour is simply unbleached flour with baking powder and a little bit of salt in it. King Arthur has an amazing self rising flour brand. Most flour companies are making this type of flour, so use your favorite variety.
Greek yogurt- Greek yogurt adds the liquid and texture to this recipe. Don't substitute regular Non-Greek yogurt, it's not thick enough and you'll have to add a lot more flour than what this calls for. Full fat Greek yogurt would be a little too thick as well, so stick with fat free Greek yogurt for the perfect dough consistency.
Egg- The egg becomes the egg wash for the pretzel bites. The egg wash creates a crispy crust so you get that chewy, crispy outside like you would a regular pretzel.

If you want to make them ahead of time, make the dough, put it in the refrigerator, and then when you are ready to bake the bites, roll the dough, and bake them normally. If you are having a large party, these can easily be doubled and tripled to serve a crowd. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
