Whole Wheat Pretzels - Recipe

I just pulled these out of the oven, and they are awesome! Sebastian gobbled his right up!

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 pk (2 1/4 tsp) yeast
1 1/3 c warm water (125-130 degrees)
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs honey
1 egg white
coarse salt

In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour with yeast and salt. Stir in warm water, oil, and honey. Beat until smooth. Mix in remaining flour until it is all incorporated. Knead on a lightly floured surface until a smooth ball forms. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray 2 large cookie sheets with nonstick spray.

Divide dough into 16 balls. Roll each ball into a 10-12 inch rope. Loop each rope into a pretzel shape on the cookie sheet. Brush each pretzel with the egg white and sprinkle on coarse salt.

Bake for 15 minutes.
