Can’t find yeast anywhere during this stay at home time? I couldn’t either! So I figured out how to make bagels without yeast AND only using 4 ingredients for the dough which was a great success!
This recipe only required 4 ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and non-fat greek yogurt. I added everything bagel seasoning and used egg whites to adhere the seasoning (but you can also use a cooking spray).
It’s important to get non-fat greek yogurt, otherwise the dough will be too sticky and not airy enough. Also, you can use either all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, or a gluten free flour in the same measurements.
- 1 1/2 cups flour all purpose, whole wheat, or gluten free mix
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups non-fat greek yogurt
- egg white from 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning use less or more to your liking
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix the flour, baking powder and kosher salt together. Add in the yogurt and mix with your hands until it just comes together.
Then begin to knead and turn the dough about 10-15 times or until the dough feels sticky but it's not actually sticking to your hands.
Use either a kitchen scraper or a sharp knife to separate the dough into 6 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball by rolling the dough against a clean tabletop with one hand. Then using two hands, carefully roll the ball into about 3/4 inch ropes. Bring the ends together and pinch them until they are securely stuck together.
Place a silpat on a baking sheet (or use parchment paper with some cooking spray if you don't have a silpat). Place the 6 bagels on the baking sheet.
Brush the tops of each bagel with egg white (or use a cooking spray) and season with everything bagel seasoning (you can also do rock salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, cinnamon sugar, etc).
Bake for 25 minutes. Let the bagels rest for 15 minutes on the baking sheet before slicing and enjoy!
