Calories 210kcal


  • 11 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 5 1/2 ounces almond flour
  • 3 ounces stevia (natvia)
  • 2 teaspoons xanthum gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup stevia (natvia)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (natvia)
  • 3 tablespoons hot water


  • Preheat oven to 180C/355F.
  • Place the mozzarella, cream cheese and butter into a heatproof bowl, or a small saucepan, and microwave or heat on the stove until completely melted.
  • While the cheese is melting, add the yeast to a mixing bowl and sprinkle over the warm water.
  • Allow to sit for a minute.
  • In your stand mixer bowl, add the almond flour, Natvia, xanthum gum and spices, and mix with the paddle attachment.
  • Add the yeast and eggs to the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Carefully pour the molten cheese into the other ingredients and mix well, pausing the scrape down any almond mixture that has stuck to the sides.
  • Continue to mix the dough until all the ingredients are really well combined.
  • Split the dough into 12 balls and leave to rest for 2 minutes.
  • Roll each ball into a long thin “sausage”, then twist into a pretzel shape.
  • The dough is quite sticky and won’t roll out well on some surfaces, I found that a plastic cutting board like this worked well, but my granite bench tops did not.
  • Place the pretzels onto a lined cookie sheet, allowing space for them to rise and spread.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-20 minutes.
  • Check after 12 minutes, pretzels are cooked when they are golden brown on both the tops and bottoms.
  • Set aside to cool for at least 15 minutes before glazing.
  • Glaze In a mixing bowl, place the Natvia Icing Mix.
  • Add the butter and whisk well.
  • Add the water a little bit at a time until the glaze has reached a pourable consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooling pretzels.
  • Enjoy immediately or wait for the glaze to set.
