You may be hearing about these easy healthy bagels. They are made with very few ingredients and low in calories, fat and smart points. I decided to make them last week and made again yesterday. I’ve done it 2 different ways and I wanted to share with you what I did. You will see so many variations out there of this recipe. This is just what I did.
I loved them so much I could probably eat them every single day. So delicious and makes me feel guilt free as they are healthier and only 3 smart points per bagel.
5 Ingredient Healthy Bagels
1 cup Greek yogurt, nonfat and unsweetened
1 cup flour (if self-rising flour, omit the salt and baking powder)
¾ t of salt
1 ½ t of baking powder
1 egg, beaten
Everything bagel seasoning
Sesame or poppy seeds
Cinnamon & sugar (Will add more points/calories)
Cheese (Will add more points/calories)
Directions: Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl mix together the Greek yogurt and the flour. Mix well until if forms a dough. Knead the dough a few minutes. Add flour to a flat surface and roll dough into a ball and cut into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a rope and pinch both ends together to create a bagel shape. Place on parchment paper and brush with beaten egg then top with desired toppings. Bake in oven 20-23 minutes until golden brown. Let cool prior to eating. Then Enjoy!
Note: I have done the method where you boiled the bagels first then baked them. Honestly, it didn’t taste or come out any different to me. The 2nd time I made them I baked for about 22 minutes. Each oven is different so the time and temp may vary. Some people cook at a lower temp for longer or a high temp for shorter. You can also add the broiler to help crisp up the bagels. I haven’t done this as mine have come out fine. If you can wait to eat them, wait till they are cooled. I’ve eaten right away both times and the insides felt slightly gummy, however they didn’t taste gummy at all.
