One taste of these fritters, and you won’t believe you didn’t just get them from a drive-through window.
How can the word “fritter” not excite you? My mouth waters when I think of the crispy, fried, crunchy exterior, the warm and soft inside, accompanied by a dipping sauce. These chicken pretzel fritters are just that. A crisp outside — thanks to crushed pretzels and hearty almond flour — with a warm cheddar chicken center. Dip these babies into some BBQ sauce, and pop ’em back.

- 3/4 cup crushed pretzels
