These homemade paleo pretzel dogs are a must for every kiddo! The perfect paleo hot dog bun substitute that makes the perfect quick snack or on the go meal.
Mr. Bejelly has asked me to make Paleo Pretzel Dogs for weeks and, well, I put him off and off until he put down his foot down.
The man hid my tablet until I made them. Mr. Meany that he is, he should be glad that I’m a kind soul, and that I didn’t put too much salt in them to teach him a lesson.
Anyhow, this recipe uses my Paleo Soft Pretzel recipe as the crust and the only thing I would do differently is increase the cook time of the recipe so that the dough is firmer.
My son gobbled them down and begged for more. These would make the perfect school lunch for your kid and I plan to make these often for the Little when he heads to school.
What you’ll need for this recipe
- Coconut oil
- Sea salt
- Apple cider vinegar
- Tapioca flour
- Baking soda
- Baking powder
- Coconut flour
- Hot Dogs
How to make Paleo Pretzel Dogs
In a small pan melt over medium heat, add the water, butter, salt, and vinegar and bring to a boil.
Remove the pan from the heat and place on your counter top.
Add in the tapioca flour and stir for 2 minutes until you get a wet paste.
Add in the baking soda and powder and stir while the mixture foams – roughly 3 seconds.
Next add in the coconut flour[ and egg and mix well until you get a dough.
Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and knead for 30 seconds to 1 minute. If you are having issues getting it to combine, you can try putting it into a food processor or Blendtec to get it to form a dough.
Pinch of a 1″ – 2″ piece of dough and roll into a 1/2″ round by 6″ – 7″ log.
Wrap around the hot dogs as shown in the photo and bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes
