No better way to start the new year with these easy Soft Pretzel Rolls which are vegan and made with only 5 ingredients. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside!
Fun thing is, that I always thought to make bread is super complicated and enduring and pretzel might be even more complicated! Well, I am glad I learned it yet in 2017 that Soft Pretzel Rolls are
SUPER FAST & EASY TO MAKE
SUPER EASY TO MAKE VEGAN AND THESE ARE EVEN WITHOUT VEGAN BUTTER
MADE WITH JUST 5 INGREDIENTS AND WATER
MY NEW FAVORITE KIND OF BREAD NEXT TO SOURDOUGH
These are great with a bowl of hot soup for lunch, or for sandwiches and burger. Also with the addition of vegan shredded cheese on top or simply plain. I promise they won’t last long!
Instastories made me do it
When I posted them in my stories on Instagram, I immediately got tons of messages asking for the recipe. At this time I did not have a proper recipe I just threw some ingredients together and formed a dough. BUT I made them again and again and again and I am still happy with the recipe!

- 2 cups spelt flour
- ⅔ cup warm water (not hot water or you might kill the yeast!)
- 2 tsp active dry yeast (7gr)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cane sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ cup baking soda
- 1-quart water
- In a small bowl combine the warm water with the sugar and the yeast until it dissolves
- Let sit for 1-2 minutes
- In a big bowl combine the flour with the salt
- Add the coconut oil and the yeast mixture
- Combine and knead with your hand for at least 3-4 minutes
- Put back in the bowl and let double in size for about 30 minutes
- Preheat your oven to 400F
- Form 5 pretzel rolls with your hands and with scissors cut some lines in each roll
- Bring the 1-quart water to boil and add the soda (Careful this bubbles!)
- Turn down the heat and put every bun for at least 30 seconds in the soda water
- Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with sea salt
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown
- Best enjoyed on the day you make them but can be eaten the day after it as well
I am SO glad I stumbled across this recipe! I’ve actually been looking for something just like this! Bread isn’t my strong suit but I’m so keen to give these a go – thanks for making the recipe so clear 🙂 One question – could I swap out the coconut oil for olive oil?
Hi! Glad to hear! I never tried but it should work otherwise use melted butter 🙂
hey Lara ! thx for your pretzel recipe ! I luuuuv them so much, but never dared to try it out ! so when i saw your „easy“ recipe, i thought : that’s time !
I am actually in the process of making of them. in the instruction, there is no indication about the type of flour you use : wholemeal or rather white ? i used half-whole and the dough was obviously kind of hard to knead.
and, would you have equivalents in grams of your cups ? i assumed 1 cup flour is 150g ; 2/3 cup water is 100g : what do you think ?
that would have been helpful to get step by step pictures to get a visual confirmation that it is going in the right direction. but i might be asking a lot 🙂
thanks anyway for your ideas, it’s a source of inspiration !
Hi Marie thanks a lot for the feedback! I used spelt flour. As for tbe grams you can check the recipe in German and there you have all the amounts hope that helps 🙂
i just saw your answer !!
actually, the buns turn out pretty well : not bad for a first try !
thx again !!
Hello Lara !
Can I use all purpose flour instead of spelt flour ? I can’t get that around here. What’s the ratio ?
Yes you can do it 1:1
Can we use dinkel flour instead of spelt?????? These look amazing!
spelt flour is Dinkel flour 🙂
Lucy from Croatia says
These are amazing!
I made them several times and each time they come out smelling and looking so lovely!
The soda trick is so cool! I can’t believe I haven’t seen it anywhere before. I will definitely use it with other bakary stuff too.
I also tried adding some seeds into the dough (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, flax) combined with olive oil what turned out great!
I did always use more water as I felt needed to make the kneading easier.
The rolls took our Easter breakfast to the next level.
Thank you for this!
Thanks so much for your feedback I am very happy you enjoy these rolls as much as I do 😀
