I love to bake. Always have.

But as I get older, I have been working on recipes that are lower in carbs, lower in sugar and just a bit healthier when I can.

That is why I decided to try fathead dough.

What is it?

Well, it is a dough made by heating up shredded mozzarella and cream cheese, stirring it and adding a few other ingredients. It is a dough used a lot in Keto baking so I thought I would try it.

Thus the new recipe for Keto Pretzels.

The dough comes together fast and I found it easy to use.

The dough also rises really well in the oven.

I hope you will give this recipe a try and if you do let me know in the comments.
