Homemade Bagels Made Simple!


IMG_5577

This recipe is from Gina at Skinnytaste. I had made them once before and they were good but I used whole wheat flour. This time I made them with unbleached all-purpose flour and they came out so much better! Each recipe makes 4 bagels and for those following Weight Watchers and counting points, each bagel is only 3 Freestyle points! I put 2 tablespoons of greek style cream cheese for a total of 2 points, making the whole bagel 5 points! Amazing, since a normal bagel is 9-11 points, plain! So thank you to Skinnytaste for this delicious recipe! I used an “everything” seasoning (recipe to follow) on them but you can use whatever you like. 

These are really easy to make and have only 5 ingredients! I made mine in my Air Fryer and they came out great! I love my Air Fryer. I have a GoWise USA fryer in purple. But they can easily be made in the oven as well, they just take longer. Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (you can use whole wheat or gluten-free if you want)

2 teaspoons baking powder (make sure it’s not expired)

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt ( I used Fage, but use whatever you like, just don’t use regular yogurt, it can get too sticky)

1 egg beaten (or egg white if you choose)

AIR FRYER DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 325ºF and set for 11-12 minutes. (My machine only had 320 or 330 so I set it for 330)
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt, mixing well. 
  3. Add the yogurt and mix with a fork until well combined. It should look like small crumbles. 
  4. Place the down on a lightly dusted work area and need it a bit until it is tacky but not sticky. About 15-20 turns, the dough should come off your hands easily.
  5. Divide the dough into four equal balls, rolling each ball into 3/4 inch thick ropes and join the ends to make the bagel shape.
  6. Brush the tops with the beaten egg and coat the top and bottom with your seasonings.
  7. Once the air fryer is heated, spray a little cooking spray on bottom of pan and transfer the bagels in batches but don’t overcrowd. I put 3 in at a time. If I had put all 4 in they would have been too crowded.
  8. Bake/Fry for 11-12 minutes. I put mine in for 12 minutes, 11 was good but the dough inside was still a little tacky. So 12 minutes worked for me. They should be golden brown. There is no need to turn them over either.
  9. Let cool at least 10 minutes or more before cutting, they will firm up when cooled.

OVEN DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Put parchment paper on a baking sheet and spray with oil to avoid sticking. (you can also use a silpat if you have one)
  2. Follow steps 2-6 as above.
  3. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before cutting. 

Makes 4 bagels
