Ingredients:

For the Keto Pretzel Bites:

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder

For the Cheese Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the mozzarella cheese in 30-second intervals until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, egg, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  4. Combine the melted cheese with the dry mixture, kneading until a dough forms.
  5. Divide the dough into small portions and roll each portion into bite-sized balls.
  6. Place the pretzel bites on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
  7. While the pretzel bites are baking, prepare the cheese sauce. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until hot but not boiling.
  8. Reduce the heat to low and gradually add the cheddar cheese, stirring until melted and smooth.
  9. Stir in the mustard powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve the baked pretzel bites with the warm cheese sauce for dipping.

Note: Feel free to sprinkle coarse salt or sesame seeds over the pretzel bites before baking for an authentic pretzel appearance.
