Do you have that weird feeling? It's back to school season that's why! It never leaves you even as an adult. But we wanted to embrace it and bring you the after school snack challenge with some tasty vegan eats that are easy to whip up after school or any time you got the munchies!
Watch how it went down below or keep scrolling for the full recipe that John made.
** makes approx. 48 pretzel bites
1 pre-made ball of pizza dough (or use our homemade dough recipe)
5 C water
2 tbsp baking soda
1 - 2 tbsp coarse sea salt
spicy maple mustard dip ingredients:
2 tbsp grainy mustard
1 tbsp prepared yellow mustard
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp hot sauce
Boil the water with baking soda.
Cut the dough in half and in half again to work with 4 smaller balls of dough.
Roll them out with your hands on a lightly floured surface and form a 1" wide log shape.
Then cut this into 1" pieces. Roll them slightly between your hands to form balls.
Once the water is at a rolling boil place 10-12 balls in the water at a time. After 20 - 30 seconds they will float to the surface. Remove them with a slotted spoon and onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Add sea salt to the top immediately and create a cross slit on the top of the pretzel with a sharp pairing knife.
Do this with all the pretzel bites and then bake in a pre-heated 450 F oven for 15 minutes until golden brown.
Prepare the mustard dip by combining all the ingredients together in a small dish. This can be pre-made and refrigerated until you want to eat pretzels! They're best eaten warm.
You can also divide the dough up and work with small batches at a time on the days you want to bake pretzels hot and ready!
