Kamut Bavarian Pretzel

12 pretzels

Pretzel. What a fascinating bread. The intricate shape of it alone makes me happy to look at it.

where I come from pretzel never was a thing but the first time I had it I was hooked this was back in 99. I was 17.

even the hard tasteless kind is appealing to me. That’s how much I love pretzel but tasteless isn’t the case with these kamut pretzels.

they are filled with flavor.

These pretzels are delicious.

The whole family loves it. This will become a weekly thing for you. Oh and you can change the toppings. Instead of flaky salt add some Zhuhai and cinnamon or garlic and fresh Parmesan
