  • Soda wash
  • Baking soda 1 tbsp
  • Topping
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling
  • Ground cinnamon 1 tsp
  • Organic brown sugar ½ cup
  • Unsalted butter, melted 2 tbsps


  • Put whole wheat flour, sea salt, sugar, yeast and sufficient very warm water in the bowl mix with a wooden spoon. Further knead into a dough. The dough shouldn't be sticky but just slightly damp to the touch.

  • Lightly grease a baking pan with vegetable oil.
  • Remove the dough from the bag and place on a clean countertop. Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  • To make soda wash, whisk together ½ cup warm water and baking soda and heat in the microwave for 1 minute.
  • Roll each of the eight dough pieces into a long rope, and shape each one into a pretzel.
  • Dip each pretzel into the soda wash and place on the greased baking pan. Sprinkle coarse sea salt, then let them rest for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200º C.
  • Keep the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 9 to 10 minutes or till the pretzels are golden brown.
  • Mix together sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl.
  • Bring the tray out of the oven, brush the pretzels with melted butter while they are hot and keep them on a serving platter. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar and serve.
