For the Pretzels

  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast mixed with 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter divided

For the Spinach Artichoke Dip

  • 10 oz frozen spinach box chopped (thawed and liquid squeezed out)
  • 14.5 oz artichoke hearts can, drained and chopped
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella


For the Pretzels

  • Heat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, microwave the mozzarella and cream cheese for 1 minute. Remove and stir, then microwave again for 40 seconds. Stir again and microwave for another 30 seconds if needed or until the cheese is completely melted and there are no visible shreds.
  • In a large bowl fitted to stand mixer with a hook attachment, mix together the almond flour, xanthan gum, yeast mixture, eggs, and 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  • Next add in the melted cheese mixture.
  • Beat on medium speed until all the ingredients are combined, scraping the sides of the bowl to help get the dough mixed together.
  • Allow the dough to cool slightly for 10 minutes so that it is easier to work with.
  • Tape a large sheet of parchment to your counter.
  • Portion the dough into equal portions (12 portions for small pretzels, 9 portions for medium pretzel, 4 portions for giant pretzels).
  • Roll each dough portion into a rope shape that is no thicker than 3/4 on an inch.
  • Form your pretzel shapes with the dough (see the pictures above for our technique) and place them the lined baking sheets.
  • Space them at least 1 1/2 inches apart from one another.
  • Brush on the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter to the tops of the pretzels and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Spinach Artichoke Dip

  • While the pretzels are baking, heat all ingredients together in saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir until the cheeses are fully melted and the spinach is warmed.

To Assemble

  • Top the baked pretzels with the Spinach Artichoke Dip and sprinkle on a little more shredded mozzarella.
  • If you have it, sprinkle on some Steak Seasoning for some extra flavor.
  • Put them back in the over for 2-3 minutes just until the cheese is melted.
