Primal Girl Magic Dough Recipe for Gluten Free Pretzels

This Primal Girl Magic Dough recipe for Chorizo Pretzels is delicious!

Ok, they're not exactly like pretzels as they don't require boiling and aren't the exact shape, but they're still pretty good we reckon. Give them a try and see what you think.

You will need to grab yourself a copy of the recipe for the magic dough first, at only $3.95 it's an absolute steal, especially when you consider all the things you can do with it.

These gluten free pretzels are great cold the next day, so whip up an extra batch, especially if you've got lunch boxes to fill for your paleo kids!

Primal Girl Magic Dough Recipe Pretzels - Nutritional Info

I can't tell you exactly what's in the recipe because that would be very unfair to Tara, but I can tell you that the nutrients will differ according to the ingredients you use.

You will get a good amount of healthy fats though, plus all the benefits that you get from eggs. 

I don't think chorizo is ever going to be considered a particularly healthy food option, but food choices aren't always about nutrients. When you are following a gluten free diet, whether through choice or necessity, it's easier to stay 'on the wagon' if you have cleaner options available to you, and it's in this spirit that we offer you this recipe.


Primal Girl Magic Dough Recipe Gluten Free Pretzel Instructions - makes approx 6

You can make these pretzels using the instructions for either the paleo or primal dough -the primal dough has cheese in it, which makes these out of this world tasty!

You want to use only half the quantity of fat and milk stated in the recipe.

  1. Chop the chorizo into small pieces.
  2. Follow the instructions in the dough recipe, adding the chorizo to the mashed vegetables.  
  3. When the dough is ready, split it into six equal balls. 
  4. Cover with clingfilm until you are ready to shape the pretzels.
  5. Take one ball and, on a piece of greaseproof paper, roll it out, CAREFULLY, into a long sausage shape. If it breaks, just squish it back together.
  6. Form a crude pretzel shape on a silicon baking tray - form a wide circle and then cross the ends over to form a cross. 
  7. Press the edges down and brush all over with the beaten egg. 
  8. Bake at 220°C/428°F/Gas Mark 7 for 15 minutes.
  9. Turn the pretzels over then bake for a further 5 minutes.
  10. Cool and serve whilst still hot, or bake the night before and serve cold or warmed under the grill.

We will be uploading a youtube instruction video for you all in the next couple of weeks so do keep an eye out for that. SIgn up to our newsletter to be the first to know when it goes live.
