Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

Homemade Bagel Recipe:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F and lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, sea salt, and plain greek yogurt. Combine using a large spoon or spatula until it starts to stick to itself in a large ball.
  3. Transfer the dough to a large, flat surface that has been lightly dusted with flour, and knead the dough about 15-20 times until it starts to stick to itself, not to your hands.
  4. Divide the dough into into 8 equal portions.
  5. Roll each portion out into a thick cylinder or rope and then join the ends to form your bagel.
  6. Brush the top of the bagels with the beaten egg. (This is optional, but it helps the toppings stay on better and, even for the plain bagels, makes the top bake better.)

  7. You can bake now as plain bagels, or make toppings (listed below).  Other options for toppings can be sesame seeds, poppy seeds, flaked sea salt or you can just leave plain.

  8. Once you have all your toppings on, transfer the bagels to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, then let them cool for about 5 minutes before devouring.

Everything Bagel Topping:

  1. If you love an everything bagel, to make your own everything topping, in a mixing bowl, combine, 2 tbsp. poppy seeds, 1 tbsp. white sesame seeds, 1 tbsp. black sesame seeds, 1 1/2 tbsp. dried minced garlic, 1 1/2 tbsp. dried onion flakes, and flaked 1 1/2 tsp sea salt. Mix this together and then sprinkle liberally over the top of your bagel.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  1. For cinnamon sugar bagels, just combine 2 tbsp. coconut sugar with 1 tsp. ground cinnamon in a small bowl and mix together for a sweet cinnamon sugar bagel. Sprinkle liberally over the top of your bagel.
