2 Ingredient Bagels Ingredients

2 ingredient Bagels raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour, do not substitute for all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, I use 2% Fage
  • Optional: egg wash, 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Optional: melted butter, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, everything bagel seasoning, dried onion flakes, mini chocolate chips, etc.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SELF-RISING FLOUR: If you only have all-purpose flour, then you can convert it to self-rising flour by mixing the regular flour with three teaspoons of baking powder and a half teaspoon of salt. 

GREEK YOGURT: We use 2% fat Greek yogurt for this recipe, but to make these into Weight Watchers bagels, you should use nonfat Greek yogurt. A vegan Greek yogurt would also work if you prefer to avoid dairy.

EGG WHITES: To give your delicious bagels a bakery feel, consider brushing the tops with a beaten egg white wash before baking.

SEASONINGS: For different flavors, you can add any of your favorite toppings such as our everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, mini chocolate chips, cinnamon sugar, or grated cheese.

How To Make This 2 Ingredient Bagels Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP TWO: Pour the flour into a mound on a cutting board or the clean countertop. Make a well in the center of the flour and scoop the yogurt into it.

STEP THREE: Use your hands to scoop flour from the outside into the center and knead together until it a dough forms. Continue to knead until the dough is smooth, stretchy, and no longer sticky.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If your bagel dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.

STEP FOUR: Slice the dough ball into eight equal pieces.

STEP FIVE: Roll each piece of dough into a log and loop the two ends together to make a bagel shape. Place the bagels onto the lined baking sheet.

PRO TIP:

To give your bagels a professional look, consider brushing them with an egg white wash before baking.

STEP SIX: Bake for 15 minutes. Then, turn the oven temperature up to 500°F and bake for three to five minutes more, until they are golden brown on top.

PRO TIP:

If you’re adding seasoning to your bagels, add them before the second bake and use a little melted butter to help them stick if necessary.
