Two-Ingredient-Dough Bagels

Rating: 3 stars 1
Traditional bagels are made with a yeast dough and boiled before they are baked. This much faster version uses a two-ingredient dough made from self-rising flour and Greek yogurt, which eliminates the need for a rise time. Sprinkle the bagels with your favorite toppings--like everything bagel seasoning--before baking.

Easy Vegan Pumpkin Spice Bagels

Rating: 5 stars 1
Our popular two-ingredient dough bagels are easy to make vegan with a simple swap. Here, we use pureed pumpkin (instead of Greek yogurt) combined with self-rising flour to make a dairy-free version of the easiest bagels ever. A little pumpkin pie spice takes them to next-level deliciousness. Want to go even further? Add a tablespoon of pure maple syrup to the dough. Then spread on some nut butter or vegan cream cheese and breakfast is served!

Golden Egg Bagels

Rating: 3 stars 3
Egg bagels are lighter and a bit sweeter than water bagels. They are great for sandwiches.

Water Bagels

Rating: 4.5 stars 1
These classic bagels are also known as New York bagels. If the secret ingredient, as New Yorkers always contend, is indeed the water, out-of-town bakers are out of luck. However, minus the Hudson River, these bagels are still a good replica of the bagels many think of as the definitive model.

Montreal Bagels

Montreal-style bagels are smaller and sweeter than their counterparts.
