These homemade bagels are as delicious as they are easy to make. You'll only need 5 simple ingredients and little effort to put these babies together. You'll never go back to store bought bagels after eating these! Each bagel is only 155 calories (compared to 250 calories for store-bought gluten-free bagels).
Preheat the oven to 400º F. Place a silpat on your baking sheet and set aside (alternatively, you could use parchment paper sprayed lightly with cooking spray).
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk 1 egg white until frothy, then add yogurt and mix well.
Add yogurt mixture to the flour mixture and mix well. If the dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour until you can handle the dough without it sticking to your hands.
Using your hands, form the dough into a large dough ball, then divide it into four sections.
Roll each section into thick ropes and then attach the ends to form a bagel shape.
Lightly brush the other egg white over the top of each bagel and sprinkle with topping of choice.
Bake for 20 minutes until tops are lightly browned. Enjoy!
The dough will come together well but don't be afraid to use your hands to really work the dough into place. Store unused bagels in a zip top bag in your fridge for two days or freeze. These bagels freeze extremely well, so feel free to make a big batch to enjoy for the week (or month). When you're ready to enjoy one, zap it for 20 seconds in the microwave, cut it in half with a serrated knife, and lightly toast it in your toaster.This recipe is inspired by SkinnyTaste.
