I decided to start doing recipe reviews since restaurants are closed for dining in due to COVID. This first review is for the 5-ingredient NO YEAST Everything Bagels that everyone is raving out. For good reason! These bagels are easy to make & absolutely delicious and there is no turning back after you taste them. You need these in your life. I give these 5 stars and two thumbs up.
I found this recipe on Skinnytaste, and I’ve listed the recipe below for your convenience:
Skinnytaste Easy Bagel Recipe:
- 1 cup (5 oz) unbleached all purpose flour, whole wheat or gluten-free mix*
- 2 teaspoons baking powder, make sure it’s not expired or it won’t rise
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, use less if using table salt
- 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt, not regular yogurt, it will be too sticky
- 1 egg white, beaten (whole egg works fine too)
- Optional topping: everything bagel seasoning
- Preheat oven to 375F. Place parchment paper or a silpat on a baking sheet. If using parchment paper, spray with oil to avoid sticking.
- In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well. Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.
- Lightly dust flour on a work surface and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until dough is tacky, but not sticky, about 15 turns (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away).
- Divide into 4 equal balls. Roll each ball into 3/4-inch thick ropes and join the ends to form bagels. (or you can make a ball and poke a hole in the center then stretch it slightly)
- Top with egg wash and sprinkle both sides with seasoning of your choice. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting.
Also take a look at my video to see how I made them along with my reaction to how they turned out.
If you make these, let me know how you liked them and be sure to share these with other people! Front line workers are some great people to share these with and you can even make mini-bagels – just cut them into smaller sections. Enjoy!
