Gluten free Vegan Pretzel Bites

Gluten free Vegan Pretzel Bites | Vegan Richa

These gluten-free pretzel bites are chewy, soft and perfect with any dip. I used sweet potato puree for the moisture, you can use well mashed potatoes or non dairy yogurt to keep the color white. 

When I made the regular Pretzel bites  a few weeks back, I knew I was not going to eat too many of those. so I made some gluten-free bites for me. I have been trying to eat less or no gluten since December. It seems to help keep my sinus inflammation down. The sinuses are still crappy, but less so with less gluten esp less wheat in my diet. I am hoping I will not have to keep this up once the temperatures rise and it gets sunny. keeping my fingers crossed!

Till then lets eat some gf pretzels! 

The white pretzels in the picture are regular pretzels and the yellow-ish ones are gluten-free
