Variations For This Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Recipe Snack
Pretzels: I used small twist pretzels because that is what I had on hand. However, you could use another size or shape for this recipe!
Some great options are:
- Tiny Twist Pretzels
- Rod Pretzels
- Stick Pretzels
- Flavored Cheddar Twists
Gluten-Free: You can easily make this recipe gluten-free by substituing out gluten-free pretzels. A great option would be Snyders Of Hanover, Gluten-Free Pretzels.
Oil: You can easily use vegetable oil instead of coconut oil. Note, though, that the air fryer might smoke.
How To Store:
This is a great recipe that you can easily make ahead of time, perfect for the holidays, get-togethers, or game day!
Store the cooked pretzels in an airtight container, which should last 2 to 3 days. After that, the pretzels will start to harden.
