Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


1/2 cup self-rising flour

1 packet natural no-calorie sweetener

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 cup canned pure pumpkin

1 tbsp. baking soda


In a medium bowl, combine flour, sweetener, and cinnamon. Mix well. Add pumpkin. Mix until dough forms.

Evenly form dough into 8 balls, about 2 tbsp. each.

In a medium pot, combine 3 cups water with baking soda. Mix well. Bring to a low boil.

Once boiling, remove pot from heat. Carefully transfer the liquid to a medium-large bowl. Place pretzel bites on a large spatula, and submerge in the liquid for 30 seconds. Carefully remove the pretzel bites with the spatula, and transfer to a plate.

Spray an air fryer with nonstick spray. Place pretzel bites in the air fryer, and spray them with nonstick spray.

Set air fryer to 370°F. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 12 minutes.


HG Dough Tips: To prevent the dough from sticking, lightly dust your hands and work surface with flour. Before assembling the pretzel bites, refrigerate dough for at least 5 minutes. It’s even easier to work with if you make the dough a day in advance.

Oven Alternative: Bake at 400ºF until light golden brown and cooked through, 13–15 minutes.
