WW Bagels- GF and Easy

WW gluten free bagels

Have you ever made bagels? I never did before, but they are so fast and easy to make I now make them all the time.

These low calorie ( Weight Watcher's )  bagels are all the rage!
Everyone is making some variation of them.

I've made a gluten free variety which probably doesn't rise as well as a glutinous flour, but they are still amazing. Can you imagine a gluten free bagel with just three ingredients and 5 minutes prep!

It takes 5 minutes prep and 20 in the oven. If you eat them right out of the oven OMG- they are the best!!

Because I divided my dough into 12 , my bagels are mini. Perhaps I should call my version mini rolls instead of bagels or maybe bagellas!

Regardless, they are absolutely delicious and are made from just 3 simple ingredients: 

1. Gluten Free Flour
2. Baking Powder
3. Greek yogurt 

bag of gluten free flour


The first time I made them, my husband ate the entire batch within a few hours. Yes, he ate too many but he said they were amazingly good! ( he is not gluten free and loved them) . 

You can make the bagels any size you want. The recipe can make 4 large bagels or 8-12  small bagels.

As you can see in the photo, I sprinkled them with sesame seeds. I also sprinkled them with coarse Pink Himalayan salt. In addition, Trader Jo's sells a seasoning mix for the everything bagel.

I used Bob Mills all purpose gluten free flour which is a bean based flour. I think it gives the bagels are rich flavor.

If you are a Weight Watcher, this entire recipe is a total of 12 points. Divide by the number of bagels you make and that will tell you the points per bagel.

You don't have to be watching your weight to enjoy these fabulous little breads. I hesitate to call my version bagels because they although they look like a bagel, they taste crunchier and and different.

I taste tested them on some friends and there were no complaints and no bagels left over. 

If you are gluten free and looking for a treat- these are great!! 
If you are not gluten free, you will love them too. 

Have you made the WW recipe for these bagels? Do they taste and cut like a bagel? Just curious what you think

My first video attempt-WW Bagels




Ingredients: 

1 cup of gluten free flour ( I used Bob's Red Mill )
2 teaspoons of baking powder ( I always use aluminum free) 
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt

Directions:

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
Mix flour and baking soda together. Add Greek yogurt, stir with a spoon and mix until absorbed. If the dough is sticky, you will need to wet your hands to work with it. Otherwise break off 4 balls. Roll each ball and use your finger to make a whole in the middle. Place on a cookie sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. In addition, I sprayed my parchment paper with olive oil spray . Place each bagel on the parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes or until each bagel is golden and bottoms are browned.


My Notes: 
1. Be sure that your baking powder is not expired
2. You can substitute self rising gluten free flour for the flour and baking soda
3. If you are not gluten free, you can substitute regular self rising flour
4. They taste best when they are first made.
5. They keep in the refrigerator for about 4 days
6. They taste best reheated in the toaster not the microwave.
7. Be careful on exact measurement for the Greek yogurt - It is a sticky dough
8. Wet your hands if you need to..

    1. Angie,
      I think the rustic look is from the type of flour I used. The flour was bean based but the flavor was delicious.
