Whole Wheat Pretzels

Recipe by skat5762

I can only imagine that these are better for you than what the pretzel vendors churn out in the malls. ;) I like to enjoy them with garlic-horseradish mustard and a tall, dark beer. Hmmm, suppose then that circumnavigates the whole 'better for you thing'...

Awesome with a generous amount of sesame seed topping with a bit of coarse salt added....and toasted on the bagel setting the next day...out of this world...a great breakfast cheese bun. Shaped leftover refrigerated dough into a pita and that worked great too!
