Ingredients and substitutions
Here are a few quick notes about the ingredients in this recipe. You can see a complete ingredient list and instructions in the recipe card below.
Mini gluten-free pretzels - Grab a bag of your favorite hard pretzels for this salty crunchy snack! I think the classic pretzel shape works best but pretzel sticks would work as well.
If not gluten-free, the regular variety will work too!
Olive oil - Oil helps the seasoning stick and crisps things up. Using olive oil keeps it dairy-free. Vegan butter can be substituted.
Dried herbs and seasonings - A quick mixture of dill weed, parsley, chives, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, and nutritional yeast that is similar to that ranch packet flavor.
Before you start: Preheat the oven and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 1: Whisk together olive oil and all of the herbs and seasonings in a large mixing bowl. Add the pretzels.
Pour olive oil mixture over them and gently stir to coat.
Step 2: Spread mix into a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes.
Let them cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
- For best results, allow these salty herbaceous snacks to cool completely before grabbing a handful. This way, you ensure that the mixture dries and sticks to the pretzels.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days. Will they last that long in your house?
These seasoned pretzels make for an incredibly versatile snack or side. Here are some suggestions for pairing!
- Dips like hummus or queso
- Alongside sandwiches
- Add to a charcuterie board
- Combine them with a savory trail mix
This is an inactive form of yeast (so it wouldn't raise bread or brew beer!) that adds a wonderful umami flavor to food. Many describe it as cheesy and I find it's the perfect complement to the herbs in this recipe.
Classic seasoned cracker recipes focus on saltines or oyster crackers and sometimes butter. Instead, grab your favorite gluten-free pretzels and mix up your own seasoning mix.
Yes! This recipe can be made a day or two ahead. Be sure to store the seasoned snack in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
