Two Ingredient Bagels

Recipe for two ingredient bagel. Bagels laying out some with cream cheese on them
22 min
39 min
6-8 bagels
Pile of Bagels with everything bagel seasoning

I gotta say, I did not have faith that this recipe for a two ingredient bagel would be anything but dry, bland, and cardboard. I mean, usually bread that is tasty is not under the category of somewhat healthy. My friend asked if I had tried this recipe for two ingredient bagels that she heard was a big thing in the Weight Watchers community. She mentioned they were only 2 ingredients (well, 4 if we are getting picky with the toppings) but really only two main ingredients.

I tried them out and you guys, these things are delicious and taste like a bagel. Like a delicious, soft, flavorful bagel! I mean, I know that sounds weird that I’m excited that a two ingredient bagel recipe tastes like a bagel, but this totally took me by surprise. Two ingredient bagels are a hit and I don’t feel bad when I eat 7. With cream cheese. Well, not as bad?

Gluten Free?

Looking for a gluten free two ingredient bagel recipe?

Guess what? You can make these gluten free. I used the Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 flour and it worked great and tasted great! (Use the trick below to make it self rising)

No Self Rising Flour?

If you don’t have self rising flour for the two ingredient bagel recipe, don’t worry. You can make your own. For every one cup of flour, you will need to add 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.  For this recipe specifically, you would use 2 cups flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt.

2 cups Greek Yogurt

2 cups Self Rising Flour *see note on how to make your own if needed*

Everything Bagel Topping (or your choice of topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with Silpat or parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the Greek yogurt and flour and mix with a wooden spoon until you have made a dough. Get your hands in there to make sure all the flour is mixed in.
  3. Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Roll dough into a rope shape and then shape into a bagel shape. Repeat with each section of dough. Place each dough bagel on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Whisk the egg and then brush egg onto the tops of the bagels. Sprinkle with Everything Bagel mix or choice of topping.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes then broil on low for 2 minutes. (watch closely)
  6. Remove and let cool. Enjoy!


**If you do not have self rising flour, you can make your own. For this recipe it would be 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

  1. GIRL, you killed it with this recipe. They are so easy and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Now, my only regret is not doubling the recipe. So I may just make them again tomorrow!!! 🙂

    1. Hi! So you can either buy Self Rising flour (it’s with the other flours at the grocery store) Or you can make your own which is just 1 cup of regular flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 salt. So for the Two ingredient bagels you would use 2 cups all purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

    1. I worked it out using an app called my fitness pal – ingredients are standard U.k grocery items so May differ if in the states – 1 bagel equals 221 calories – 35.7g carbs – 2.6g fat – 12.8g protein – I believe the Greek yoghurt is low fat but here’s a rough estimate

      1. If I want to make these gluten free with the bobs 1-1 flour, would I just use 2 cups bobs flour (or would it be different?)3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Just want to make sure I get this right for gluten free. Thanks!

    1. Thank you! Broiling is basically putting them under super high heat for a short time. So at the end you could turn up the heat on them for about 2 minutes. Gives them the brown color at the end.

  2. Instead of self rising flour, what if you substitute with almond flour? I want to lower my carb intake, I am diabetic.

    1. I made them with almond flour i added 2tsp of baking powder and 1/4 of salt. they were good but im sure they better with regular flour..I count carbs so this worked for me..I did chives cream cheese and its was perfect

      1. I am so glad you let me know these did good with almond flour! Great information. I’m a sucker for chives cream cheese too.

  3. Can’t wait to try this recipe.
    Any chance I can use pastry or bread flour…….which I have an abundance of?

  4. I made these with my elderly mom. It was a simple activity and she had so much fun. Thank you. They are so yummy and easy to make

  5. I made them the first time and they came out good, they were not sticky at all but they did have a sour bread taste. The second time I tried them with blueberry yogurt and they were very sticky, they came out more like a scone, still very tasty.

  6. Would it be possible for you to add the exact grams you use?

    I made them twice now and used google to convert from cups to grams, but twice I added at least 1/2 to 1 cup more flour and still it was a sticky mass that I could not get off my fingers or form bagels 🙁
