The smell of these freshly baked Bavarian-style pretzels is reminiscent of baseball games and amusement parks -- and since they're made with whole grain flour and minimal fat, you can feel good about eating them, too.

Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

1 1/2 cup Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
1/2 tsp Sugars, Granulated
5 1/4 tsp Yeast
4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 1/2 oz Fat Free Plain Yogurt
2 large Egg, White

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

  1. In small saucepan, heat milk until warm to the touch; remove from heat. In small bowl, combine cup (125 mL) of the milk with malt syrup; sprinkle yeast over top. Let stand until frothy, about 10 minutes.

  2. In large bowl, whisk together 3 cups (875 mL) of the flour and salt. With wooden spoon, stir in milk mixture, remaining milk and yogurt. Turn out onto board and knead in enough of the remaining flour to make soft, slightly sticky dough. Place dough in large lightly greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 2 hours.

  3. Punch down dough and cut into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into rope about 24 inches (60 cm) long; let rest, covered with plastic wrap, for 30 minutes.

  4. To form pretzels, place one rope on work surface; bring ends together to form circle, then bring ends up through centre of circle, crossing ends over each other and extending about inch (1 cm) past top edge of circle. Pinch ends slightly to top edge of circle. Repeat with remaining ropes.

  5. Place pretzels upside down on lightly greased rimless baking sheets; brush with some of the egg white. Bake, one sheet at a time, in centre of 350F (180C) oven for 15 minutes. Brush again with egg white and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt. Bake until golden brown, about 7 minutes.
