    Easy Bagels

    • This is straight from Skinny Girl – no changes cos her recipes are always perfect! They taste great and are so easy! I saw the recipe on FB at 6 am and made them for breakfast the same morning. The recipe makes 4 small bagels. I sliced it in half, toasted it and topped it with vegan cream cheese and a slice of tomato! Hubby had never had a savory bagel (what!?!? Don’t even get me started) and he enjoyed them! I used the Everything Bagel Mix from TJ’s. I did lazy out and toss everything in the food processor. You can visit for details on how to do it by hand.
    • 1 c flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1 c Greek yogurt (Do NOT substitute with regular yogurt), drain off any liquid
    • 1 egg white, beaten
    • optional toppings: everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic flakes, dried onion flakes

    Preheat oven to 350. Like a pan with parchment and spray with oil. Or heat your air fryer, and spray the air fryer basket with oil. Beat the egg white and set aside.

    Add dry ingredients to food processor and pulse to combine. Add yogurt and pulse to incorporate, then pulse about 20 times until it forms a tight ball.

    Lightly flour your work surface and form the dough into a ball. Divide into 4 pieces and roll into ropes and then form into a bagel shape.

    Brush with egg white and add your topping of choice.

    Bake or air fry for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
