IngredientsNumber of servings: 1 pretzel
- 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
- 1 packet (1/4-ounce) rapid-rise yeast
- 5 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
- 1 1/2 cups very warm water (120º to 130ºF)
- 3 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon coarse or kosher salt

Healthy Cooking Tip
Always buy wheat germ in sealed containers, preferably vacuum packaged. This protects from oxidation and rancidity, which occur due to its high oil content. Always seal it in glass jars in the fridge.
