  • Heat the non-dairy milk along with the maple syrup and water in a saucepan to about 110 degrees or until just warm enough to dip a finger into, but not scalding.
  • Place the liquid in a large bowl and sprinkle on the yeast. Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes or until the yeast is frothing.
  • Add the oil, two flours and wheat gluten, if using. Add the garlic.
  • Knead on medium speed for about 6-7 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Remove the dough to a flat surface, flour the surface lightly, and knead into a ball,
  • Cut the dough into eight equal parts. Roll each piece into a ball and let them stand, covered, about 15 minutes.
  • Roll each piece into a cylinder about seven inches long, on a lightly floured surface, sealing any edges tightly and tucking them underneath.
  • Place the buns on a baking sheet about two inches apart, cover with a towel, and let them stand for 30 minutes.
  • Bring 8 cups of water to boil in a large pot. After the water boils, on low heat or with the heat turned off momentarily, add the baking soda.
  • Restart the stove if you turned it off, and add the pretzel bun logs to the boiling water, cooking each side for 30 seconds.
  • Remove them and place them on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, about an inch apart. Immediately sprinkle on some sea salt.
  • Cut three slits on the top of each bun. Place the buns in a preheated 425-degree oven and let them bake for 13 minutes.
  • Remove and cool on a rack.
