Protein Pretzel Bites & Cheese Dip

Servings: 12 pretzels Serving Size: 1 pretzel


Baking Soda Bath for Pretzels

  • 1⁄4 Cup Baking Soda
  • 4 Cups Water

Ingredients for Protein Cheese Dip

  • 64g Queso Dip (or Salsa Con Queso)
  • 28g Shredded Light Mozzarella (or light cheddar)
  • 7g (1 Tbsp) Cheddar Powder
  • 1⁄2 Cup Milk of Choice (I use almond milk)
  • 30g PEScience Select Multi-Purpose Protein


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, protein powder, salt, and Greek yogurt until dough forms
  • Add the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll into a rope. Use a butter knife to cut into 12 pretzel bites
  • Combine 4 cups of water with 1/4 cup baking soda in a large saucepan to make your baking soda bath, bring to a boil, then remove from heat
  • Add a few of the pretzel bites to the baking soda bath, wait 30 seconds, then use a slotted spoon or spatula to remove the pretzel bites and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Continue for all the pretzel bites
  • Melt one tablespoon of butter in the microwave and brush the tops of your pretzel bites, then top with your coarse salt. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden brown
  • While they bake, make the cheese sauce by microwaving the queso, milk, and cheese for 2 minutes mixing every 30 seconds. Whisk in the protein powder and cheddar a little bit at a time
  • Brush pretzels with remaining butter and dig in!
