Ingredients You'll Need
This easy bagel recipe requires only 5 ingredients, that’s what makes it so perfect!
All-purpose gluten-free flour blend: make sure to use all-purpose gluten-free flour and not baking flour so that the texture of the bagels comes out perfect every time. I use Bob's Red Mill flour each and every time.
Dairy-Free Yogurt: both coconut yogurt and cashew yogurt have worked for this recipe. Make sure to grab an unsweetened version so as not to make your bagels more like donuts.
Non-Dairy Butter: I use a local brand for this made from cashews. However, traditional dairy-free butter will work just fine.
Baking powder: this will help the bagels rise slightly but not as much as a traditional, yeast-based one. The benefit is there’s no soaking required.
Salt: to help the ingredients work together, don’t overlook this!

Homemade Everything Bagel Seasoning
No need for an egg wash with this healthy bagels recipe! The everything seasoning bakes right onto the bagels after it’s sprinkled.
Made with only four ingredients to keep it simple, the everything seasoning comes out extremely flavorful.
Important Teaching Tips
Make sure to let the dough sit for five full minutes. Otherwise, the bagels will bake unevenly.
The butter needs to be softened but not melted in order to mix properly.
When portioning the bagels, make sure to put extra gluten-free flour on your hands so that the batter doesn’t stick all over them. Press them down so they’re about one inch thick.
The bagels are best eaten fresh out of the oven. When stored in the fridge they do firm up a bit. So, let them sit at room temperature before slicing otherwise they’re a bit delicate.
The gluten-free bagels taste best when heated or toasted and not just out of the fridge.
They can be stored in airtight containers on the counter for three days or in the fridge for a week.
Not all gluten-free flours are made the same. Thus, it's important to stick to the one listed. Other flours will have different blends and absorb liquid differently which will alter the texture of the bagels.
Most non-dairy yogurts will work for this recipe. However, make sure not to use dairy-free Greek yogurt as it's too thick for this recipe.
The Best Toppings For Healthy Bagels
You can use your bagel as a quick breakfast or even lunch!
Our favorite ways to enjoy them include toasting them and then using:
- Avocado mashed in with hemp hearts
- Vegan cream cheese and jam
- As a deli sandwich with cold cuts
- Smeared with nut butter
- Fried egg
- Homemade pastrami
As a Certified Nutrition Coach, my favorite is topping the bagels with some extra protein!
