Easy Skinny Bagels

It’s no secret that I love, love, love bagels. But not just any bagels, New York bagels, Brooklyn bagels- my absolute favorite of all time. I have always loved just about any bagel I have eaten, but nothing compares to a fresh Brooklyn bagel. In fact, anytime I am in NYC, I stop in this little bagel shop called Brothers’ Bagels, and get an everything, toasted, with jalapeño cream cheese. The best part, it is always the same set of dudes manning the counter, handling the lines with ease, smooth, efficient, and pleasant. On my most recent trip to NYC, I actually even brought a dozen bagels and 1/2 pound of cream cheese home with me, because YOLO. Okay, not really on the last part, but I only venture up there occasionally, so I like to bring Brooklyn home with me to the deep south.

Thanks to SkinnyTaste, I have found a beautiful bagel spin-off that is customizable, low carb and high protein, plus with an added bonus of having no fat, they are super easy to fit into any nutrition plan. With only 5 common ingredients, you can easily whip these up in a pinch!

Check out the recipe below:

Ingredients:

  1. 120g All-purpose flour

  2. 200g Non-fat greek yogurt

  3. 2 tsp baking powder

  4. 3/4 tsp salt

  5. 1 egg or 1 egg white, whipped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F and grease a baking tray (or use a silicone baking shet)

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt. Add in the greek yogurt and mix until it forms small dough balls.

Using clean hands, move the scratch dough to a working surface- I prefer a silicone mat, but you can use a floured board.

Knead the dough until a nice ball forms and flatten slightly to form a disc. From the disc, make 4 separate dough balls.

Roll out each ball into a long snake like dough roll, then put the ends together, creating a circle.

Place the 4 circles of dough onto the greased baking sheet (or silicone baking sheet).

Brush egg mixture on top, then add any optional toppings.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top.
