Slice the dough into 1 inch wide strips by 12 inches lengthwise.

Roll each strip into a log at least 12 inches long. The roll should be about 1/2 inch thin. Then shape into a pretzel.

Serve within 3-4 hours.

Servings: 6-8 (1 pretzel per serving=3 points) 

Tips for Making Air Fryer Pretzels

  •  Test fry one or two pretzels to see how they fry. You can then adjust the size afterward if you want a thinner or thicker pretzel. 
  • Try substituting the crescent rolls for this 2-ingredient dough. This will lower the point value!
  • If you want to make air fryer pretzel bites, instead of forming a pretzel shape, just cut off dough pieces into bite sizes and follow the remaining instructions
  • Most of the time I use parchment liners when using the air fryer, clean up is even easier!
