  • 2 cups water (110 degrees)
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons quick rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or honey)


  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • Pretzel salt (optional)


  • Add water to a bowl and heat it to about 110 degrees F. That’s basically just warm water - not hot and not cold.
  • Add yeast and whisk together. Set the bowl aside.
  • Next, grab a large bowl, and mix together the flour, sugar, and salt.
  • Pour the water-yeast mixture to the flour mix, and stir until a dough forms — you may need to add another tablespoon or so of water, but you want that dough to be nice and thick and not too sticky!
  • Sprinkle some flour to a countertop, and divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  • Roll the dough into eight ropes.
  • Slice the dough into 1-inch piece.
  • Lightly spray the basket of the air fryer with oil of choice.
  • Place pretzel bites into the basket, giving them enough room to expand. Brush them with melted butter.
  • Cook for 7 minutes at 400 degrees F, or until lightly browned on top.
  • Remove from air fryer, and once slightly cooled, transfer them to a plate.
  • Brush them once more with remaining butter and sprinkle pretzel salt on top.
  • Enjoy!
