Old Bay Pretzels

Well, I won't promise you that this recipe is organic but it is a lot better than buying flavored pretzels as you won't have the bad oils, fake and "natural" flavorings and preservatives. It is a great snack to take to a gathering, and since they are spicy you can't eat too many! I'm still on the look-out for a good, organic gluten free pretzel but for now have to settle for the excitement of those who can eat and enjoy!

2 gallon zip-top bag
1/2 c organic olive oil
2-3 T Old Bay (or more if you like them hot!)
1 bag Snyder's Nibblers or 1 28 oz tub of Wege hard pretzels (or your favorite brand/shape)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Pour oil and Old Bay into bag and mix. Add pretzels, seal bag and shake until well coated (I usually shake over the sink just in case it would open on me). Pour onto large cookie sheet in single layer. I will often give another shake of Old Bay once they are on the sheets. Bake 1-1 1/2 hours, stirring/turning occasionally, about every 1/2 hour or so. If you use less oil they take less time, more oil takes more. I usually test them throughout and when they are dry and crunchy they are ready! Cool and place in air-tight container. Usually I will turn off the oven when they are close to being done and let them cool in there. They will most likely stay fresh longer than they can go without being eaten :)
