Non-gluten-free sourdough?

I know, I know, I’m posting a link to a sourdough recipe made with wheat flour. Don’t get your panties in a wad, please.

There’s quite a bit of argument going around the web on whether or not sourdough is safe for celiacs. Though I can eat traditional slow-rise sourdough without any issues, I would encourage anyone with celiac or gluten-intolerance to do their own research before giving these pretzels a try.

And if you don’t feel safe eating them, don’t. I’m not a doctor, I’m just writing my story.

Slow-rise goodness.


These pretzels are a delicious snack or treat on their own, but my family’s favorite way to have them is with a side of homemade cheese sauce. It’s best served warm, so make sure you don’t whip it until you’re ready to dive in. Of course, you could always serve them with some of my easy 3-ingredient honey mustard, or whip up some honey butter if you can do dairy.

If you don’t currently have a sourdough starter going, you can get them from Cultures for Health. They have a regular, whole wheat sourdough starter, and a 100% gluten-free sourdough starter, as well!
