  • 2 cup self-rising flour do not substitute for all-purpose flour
  • 2 cup greek yogurt I use 2% Fage
  • egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water) optional
  • melted butter, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, everything but the bagel seasoning, dried onion flakes, mini chocolate chips, etc. optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mound flour on clean countertop or cutting board.
  • Scoop yogurt into center of flour.
  • Use your hands to scoop flour from the outside into the inside of the mound, kneading it together with the yogurt until it forms a dough.
  • Continue kneading the dough until it has some elasticity, can be stretched, and is somewhat smooth and no longer sticky.
  • Form a ball with the dough and slice into 8 separate pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a log and loop the two ends together to form the bagels.
  • Place bagels on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Turn oven temperature up to 500°F and continue baking bagels until they are browned on top, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    Optional: Brush tops and sides of bagels with an egg wash before initial baking.
  • Optional: After bagels have baked for the first 15 minutes, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with desired toppings. Proceed baking at 500°F for 3 to 5 minutes until the tops and/or the toppings of the bagels have browned.


Baked bagels can be sliced open, toasted, and topped with cream cheese or whatever spread you prefer on your bagels.
