Soft Baked 'Pretzels' ~ A healthy version

Once you make the dough for Moomie's Buns, (the reworked, more nutritious version) these are a lot of fun to make. (And eat!)

Unlike traditional soft pretzels, this method skips the step of boiling the shaped pretzels before baking.

After the first rise just take a portion of dough, roll into a rope shape with floured hands, using a floured surface to assist if needed, then turn into a pretzel shape. Brush with an egg wash, or egg substitute and sprinkle with coarse salt, seeds, or herbs if desired. Place on a lightly greased or silicone mat lined shallow baking pan and allow to rise for 10 to 15 minutes then bake until done to your liking in a preheated 375*(F) oven.

Again, for portion control I make them quite small, but of course you can make them any size you prefer. I like to serve them warm from the oven with whole grain Dijon mustard for dipping. If you try using the reworked Moomie's dough this way, I hope you like it.
