If you ask me how many pretzels I have been making lately, I will simply shrug. I’ve been trying so many different recipes I’ve actually lost count. I reckon I have too many pretzel-making plans. But to take a break from the search for the pretzel, I decided to deviate from all that white starch and make something a little healthier; still pretzels, yes, but with the addition of hearty whole wheat flour. I like eating whole wheat bread on a regular basis, mostly because I like the muted flavour of grains, and the nice texture to boot. Plus it’s really filling and great for digestion. There’s been a lot of attention given to the health benefits of whole foods lately, with companies coming out with their own variations of whole wheat this or whole grain that. So I figured, surely there exists a recipe that makes great-tasting whole wheat pretzels out there!
Off I went blog-hopping until I came across this particular one that just jumped out on me. It’s not just the fact that it garnered positive reviews, or that it had truly scrumptious-looking photos, although that is part of the reason why I chose this. I can’t fully explain it, just that the recipe simply called out to me, begging to be made. As odd as that may sound, I actually have half the mind to name these pretzels the one.
