Gluten-Free Cinnamon & Sugar Pretzels

Let me start off by warning you that these pretzels are super addicting. Now you can't say I didn't warn you. 


The combination of coconut sugar and cinnamon is my new fav thing. It is amazing on any sweet treat. Add a bit of sea salt...and instantly you have transformed something boring into something fabulous.

Since going gluten-free {we went 100% overnight just a few weeks ago due to my son's allergy} I haven't had time to make my own snacks. I'm just now starting to get creative and it's really fun. But until now, my family has been trying everything you can imagine from the gluten-free snack isle - just out of pure curiosity and excitement. I wanted this transition to be easy and FUN for my boys so we bought a few packaged goodies that we wouldn't normally buy {wink}. They were excited about that. 

You'd be surprised at how BAD FOR YOU these gluten-free snacks can be and there might not be gluten in there but there's a whole lotta other crappola! Wow. Anyways...

Pretzels!!!!! Who would have thought that the gluten-free versions we were much better than the regular ones? Glutino makes these amazing little snacks and we are so happy they do.

MAYBE it's simply just because I haven't eaten pretzels in years? Who knows.

Anyhow, I decided today to dress these little-gluten-free-bites up a bit and surprise my kids with a new treat after school {these are so quick and easy to make}. Boy are they in for a wonderful treat...



3-4 cups gluten-free pretzels

1 Tbls cinnamon

2-3 Tbls coconut sugar

coconut oil spray {yes, the spray}

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a small bowl combine cinnamon and sugar until well mixed. In a large pan pour in the pretzels. Coat them VERY Well with coconut oil spray. Tossing them and being sure to cover them completely. Immediately sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mixture so that each pretzels gets some. You can toss them and keep going until you've used up all your mix. 

Cook these little guys for about 25 minutes. Stirring once or twice. They are ready once cooled.
