Happy National Pretzel Day (gluten free style)!

Did you know April 26 is National Pretzel Day?  Well, it is.

Being gluten free you might think this doesn’t concern you, but thanks to Glutino, it does.

Glutino’s gluten free pretzels are delicious! So now you can celebrate National Pretzel Day right along side all of your gluten-eating friends.

They have pretzel sticks, pretzel twists, pretzel sesame rings, and (wait for it…) chocolate covered and yogurt covered pretzels!!!

I have personally tried all of these, except the chocolate (fudge) ones and let me tell you… I’m a huge fan! I’ll admit, it’s been awhile since I’ve had pretzels, so I can’t promise they’re exactly like the “real” thing, but I can tell you they’re good. And my kids (who can have gluten-filled pretzels) love them. I can also tell you that I’ve had some gross gluten free pretzels. These taste nothing like those ones.

I’m actually quite in love with the yogurt covered pretzels. They’re AMAZING!!! And addicting. I’d go to the cupboard thinking I’d eat just 3… well, you can probably guess the rest of that. Pretty much, I had planned to share them with my sister, but that’s not going to happen until a trip to the store is made. I’m guessing the chocolate ones are the same way. The plain ones taste like pretzels. Which is a good thing.

So, to help you celebrate National Pretzel day on April 26th the way you ought to (besides the help I’ve already given you by letting you know about these delicious Glutino pretzels), here are some recipes that use pretzels and no other flour/gluten products. You can also be lazy like me and eat them plain… well, as plain as you can call yogurt and chocolate covered pretzels… yum!

And those were just the first gluten free (besides the pretzels) recipes that caught my eye when I searched “pretzel” on Pinterest. I know there are TONS more out there. Plus, you can make the pretzel recipes that also take some flour and just use some gluten free flour in it. So many yummy possibilities!

Have a happy pretzel day!!! Smile

I'd like to put all of these on our weekly menu. Especially the Mustard-Baked Chicken with a Pretzel Crust and the Chocolate Mint Pretzel Bites.
