If you’re a fan of everything bagels, you have to try these 5 ingredient everything bagels! They’re so easy to make, so tasty, and perfect for bagel sandwiches. Plus, you can make them gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free.

No yeast? No problem!

These everything bagels don’t require yeast of any kind. All you need is a little baking powder! Because these bagels don’t require yeast, they can be made start to finish in about 45 minutes.

What ingredients will I need to make these everything bagels?

You’ll need several simple ingredients to make these bagels. They are:

  • all purpose flour (regular or a gluten free blend)
  • yogurt (regular or dairy free)
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • everything seasoning

To boil the bagels and add an egg or oil wash, you’ll need:

  • water (for boiling)
  • baking soda and/or sweetener (for boiling)
  • egg or oil (for an egg or oil wash)
What kind of gluten free flour do you recommend?

I’ve found that Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-1 baking flour, King Arthur measure for measure gluten free flour, and Walmart’s gluten free flour are all great gluten free flour options. Another great option is Cup4Cup gluten free flour, although it is not dairy free.

What kind of dairy free yogurt do you recommend?

I recommend Forager Project unsweetened cashew milk yogurt. There are no added sweeteners, preservatives, or artificial ingredients in this yogurt, which I love! Another great option is Kite Hill plain almond milk yogurt (though I haven’t tried it in this particular recipe yet).

Can I use other gluten free flours in this recipe?

While this recipe turns out the best with an all purpose gluten free flour blend, it also works pretty well with both almond flour and oat flour (although the measurements are a bit different). You can find my oat flour bagel recipe here and my almond flour bagel recipe here.

Do I have to boil these homemade everything bagels?

You do not need to boil the everything bagels before baking them, but I highly recommend doing it if possible! I find the bagels look and taste better after being boiled. Bagels are traditionally boiled before being baked and doing so will give your bagels the classic bagel taste.

Should I use a sweetener or baking soda in the boiling water?

I have found that both a sweetener or baking soda work well to boil the bagels. I personally like to use both in the boiling water! You can use honey, molasses, or maple syrup in the boiling water. Add enough sweetener to give the water a brown tint.

Homemade Everything Bagels

Servings 2
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 45 mins

Ingredients

Bagel Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour (regular or a gluten free blend)
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (regular or dairy free)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • everything bagel seasoning

Other Ingredients

  • water (for boiling)
  • baking soda or sweetener (for boiling)
  • egg or oil (for an egg or oil wash)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a medium sized baking tray with parchment paper. While the oven preheats, bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • While the oven and water are heating up, mix together all of the bagel ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Mix until the dough begins to take the shape of a ball. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour. If it’s too dry, add more yogurt.
  • Once the dough is mixed, split the dough into 2 evenly sized pieces and add to a lightly floured surface. If the dough is sticking to the counter, add more flour to the counter.
  • To shape the dough into bagels, gently roll each piece of dough into a log shape using the palms of your hands. Then pinch the ends of each dough log together to form circular bagel shapes. Another option is to simply roll each piece of dough into a smooth ball and make a hole in the center using your fingers. Then gently flatten the dough into a bagel.
  • Once the water is boiling, add in some baking soda and/or sweetener and stir to dissolve. Add enough sweetener to give the water a brown tint.
  • Transfer the bagels to the boiling water and allow them to cook for 30 seconds on each side.
  • Once the bagels have been boiled, transfer them to the lined baking tray and brush the bagels with an egg wash or with some olive oil or melted coconut oil. Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning.
  • Bake the bagels in the oven for 30 minutes, until cooked through. Once the bagels have finished baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool completely.
  • Once cooled, slice your bagels, toast, top, and enjoy!
