Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter R

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Ranch Pretzel Twists! You’re thinking snack-city. I know, right? Except this version of baked pretzels is made with one of the healthiest foods around: Chia Seeds! They’re a good source of vitamins and minerals in a balanced diet. With every bite you’ll practically be doing the “Happy Dance”.

15-ounce bag of pretzel twists 

1 cup pure vegetable oil

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

1 packet Ranch seasoning mix

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Preheat the oven to 275°. Empty pretzel twists into a gallon storage zipper bag. Mix thoroughly all the remaining ingredients except chia seeds. Pour over pretzels and close the bag. Toss the bag to evenly coat all pieces until the oil is absorbed. Empty contents onto a baking sheet coated with non-stick spray. Try to form a single layer. Lastly, sprinkle the chia seeds over the pretzels. Bake 10 minutes. Then turn pretzels over and bake an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before storing in sealed container.
