  • 16 oz bag tiny twist pretzels
  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    1 cup avocado oil, 2 teaspoon garlic salt, 2 teaspoons lemon pepper, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Add in pretzels, seal up ziploc bag, and gently shake to combine.

  • Allow pretzels to soak up the seasoned oil for at least 6 hours, or ideally for 24 hours. Turn bag to shake up pretzels every few hours. No need to bake them, the pretzels will soak up all the oil.
  • Will keep in an airtight container for at least 1 week.
  • See the Recipe Notes below for more tips, FAQ's and ingredient substitutions.


Oil: I prefer using avocado oil. I try and avoid vegetable and canola oil, but those would work as well. Same quantity.
Garlic Salt: If you don't have garlic salt, you can substitute 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon salt.
Spice: This is mild spice. Feel free to use even less cayenne pepper if you don't want it spicy. When making for my kids I only use 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. You can also use more to taste if you want it spicier.
