Soft Wholewheat Pretzels


  • 1 heaping tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • dash of salt
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Coarse salt for sprinkling


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour and salt, make a well in the center. Pour vegetable, honey, and yeast mixture. Knead well; at this stage, dough will still be too wet, thus you will need the other 1/2 cup of flour; add bits by bits while keep kneading.
  • Place in a greased bowl, cover with damp towel, let stand in warm place for an hour or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Divide doubled in size dough into 8 small portions.
  • Roll each portions to a long rope and twist into pretzel shape.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet, sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake for 15 minutes (crust will be golden brown).
  • Serve warm is excellent, serve cold is no problem.
