These are so fun to make, and as long as you have active yeast, flour, salt and sugar you can make the dough!
I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 bread flour to get in some additional fiber. Add anything to these bagels (cheddar cheese, sesame, etc) but I highly recommend this recipe using Trader Joe’s ‘everything but the bagel’ seasoning.
You could make these into full-sized bagels or smaller bite-sized bagels. Try these homemade whole wheat everything bagels with the recipe below.
Note: best fresh out of the oven with a little cream cheese!
1.5 cups warm water
1 tbsp active yeast
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour
1 tbsp sugar
1.5 tsp salt
1 tbsp honey
recipe (makes 6 bagels)
1. mix water and yeast in a small mixing bowl
2. in a separate large mixing bowl add flours, sugar and salt
3. pour yeast and water mixture into flour a few tbsps at a time and stir with fork until it becomes thick enough to form with your hands and knead
4. place dough into a bowl sprayed with olive oil and cover with a cloth for 45 mins - 1 hour
5. bring a large pot of water to a boil and add honey
6. cut dough into 6 pieces and roll into equal sized balls about 2” in diameter
7. make an imprint with your thumb in the center of the dough to form a hole for the bagel shape
8. place bagels into boiling water 2-3 at a time for 3 mins on each side
9. place onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper
10. whisk the egg in a little bit of water and brush egg wash over the top of the bagels
