Oven Recipe Air Fryer Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes            Cook Time: 25 minutes          Yield: 4 bagels     


  • 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup self-rising white flour 
  • 1/2 cup oat flour 
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg white, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional toppings: Everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic flakes, dried onion flakes

Oven Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, flour, and baking powder. Stir until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour until it becomes manageable.
  3. Divide the dough into four equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball, then roll each ball into a rope shape, around 6 inches in length. Form a circle by bringing the edges together and pinch together. It should be the same size as a full-size bagel. 
  4. Place the formed bagels onto the prepared baking sheet. If desired, brush the tops of the bagels with beaten egg white and sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
  5. Bake the bagels in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Once baked, remove the bagels from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your homemade protein bagels plain or with your favorite toppings.

Air Fryer Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients together until well incorporated.
  2. Add the yogurt to the dry mixture and blend using a fork or spatula until the texture resembles small crumbles.
  3. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Transfer the dough from the bowl onto the floured surface. Knead the dough several times until it becomes tacky but not sticky, approximately 20 turns. The dough should not leave residue on your hands when pulled away.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into ropes about 3/4-inch thick. Join the ends of each rope to form bagels.
  5. Brush the bagels with an egg wash and sprinkle both sides with the seasoning of your choice.
  6. Preheat the air fryer to 280°F (140°C). Avoid overcrowding by baking in batches.
  7. Transfer the bagels to the air fryer basket without overcrowding and bake for 15 to 16 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. There is no need to turn them during baking.
  8. Allow the bagels to cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Experiment with different breakfast toppings to customize your bagels. Some examples include avocado and egg, smoked salmon and lox, or cottage cheese and tomatoes.
  • If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or freeze them for longer storage. Simply thaw and reheat before serving.
