  • Preheat the oven to 425F; line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
  • Add the yeast and warm water to a small bowl and stir with a fork to combine; let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Melt the mozzarella and cream cheese together in a double boiler or microwave. If using the microwave, start out with 1 minute and then stir the cheese with a fork; continue heating it in 15-second intervals until it’s melted.
  • Stir the dissolved yeast into the cheese mixture, and then stir in the egg, and finally the almond flour mixture. It’s easiest to do this with your hands; to help prevent the dough from sticking, lightly spray your hands with a little avocado or olive oil before kneading the ingredients together until they form a dough.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces; roll each into a log about 4 inches long and cut each log into 4 bites (so you end up with 16 bites total).
  • Arrange the bites on the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.
  • As soon as they’re out of the oven, carefully brush the top of each pretzel bite with butter and sprinkle on a little salt.
  • Cool slightly before serving.
