These garlic ranch pretzels are one of my favorite seasoned pretzel recipes. They're made with simple ingredients like ranch seasoning, garlic powder, dill weed, and olive oil, and have a delicious flavor. You have to make this addicting snack for your next party or as school snacks for kids! And if they love this recipe, they'll love comeback crackers too!


Units Scale
  • 1-16oz bag (453g) sourdough hard pretzels
  • 1 cup (220g) olive oil
  • 1/3 cup (43g) Ranch seasoning (~3 packets)
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed


  1. Preheat oven to 250° and line large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Place pretzels into a resealable plastic bag. Gently smash a rolling pin or sturdy sauce pan into the bag to crush the pretzels until they're broken into small chunks.
  3. Pour onto baking sheet and set aside.
  4. In a liquid measuring cup, add olive oil and seasonings. Whisk until combined.
  5. Pour oil mixture over crushed pretzels.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, toss, and then bake another 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool on baking sheet and enjoy!


  • Let the pretzels marinate in the seasoning oil mixture for longer than an hour or overnight to get extra flavor!
  • These pretzels are perfect on their own but would also be great as croutons in a salad or as a soup topping, and on a charcuterie board! The smaller pieces are great breadcrumbs for breaded chicken too.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days (if they can even last that long!).
  • You can use melted butter, melted coconut oil, vegetable oil, popcorn oil, or canola oil in lieu of olive oil. I prefer olive oil because of the unsaturated fat content! Butter and coconut oil have a higher saturated fatty acid content than olive oil!
  • Other flavor variations instead of garlic ranch:
    • Cinnamon sugar - cinnamon sugar pretzels are extremely addicting and a great variation if you love sweeter pretzels! 
    • Lemon pepper - using lemon pepper will give a tangy flavor to pretzels
    • Garlic salt - you can use garlic salt in lieu of garlic powder, but the end result may be a little saltier than normal
