Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (3 1/2 ounces; 100 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups gluten-free pretzels (about 7 ounces; 200 grams)
  • 1/4 cup butter or dairy-free margarine, melted (2 ounces; 56 grams)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Stir together pretzels and melted butter in a large bowl. Sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly over the pretzels. Stir to coat the pretzels.

  4. Spread pretzels onto the baking sheet. Bake until sugar bubbles, about 12 minutes. Remove and let pretzels cool on the pan. Don’t eat right away. The sugar is very hot and can burn your mouth. Once the pretzels are cool, break apart.
  5. Store pretzels in an airtight container for up to one week.
