Back to All Recipes


2 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups plain or vanilla Greek yogurt

4 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

3/4 cup dried fruit such as raisins, craisins, blueberries, cherries or currants

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons honey (may omit if using sweetened yogurt)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg white, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 375º and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, dried fruit and cinnamon. Stir in yogurt, honey and vanilla.
  3. Dust a clean work surface and your hands with flour and place dough on top of work surface. Knead dough a few times until all ingredients are well combined. If dough is too sticky, knead in a little more flour. 
  4. Divide dough into 8–12 balls, depending on your preferred serving size. Roll each ball into a rope and then connect the ends to form bagels. Alternately, you could keep the dough in a rope shape and make a “bagel stick” instead of a round bagel. 
  5. Arrange bagels on prepared baking sheets, leaving space for the bagels to expand. Brush each bagel with beaten egg white. Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes or until lightly brown.
  6. Allow bagels to cool slightly, then enjoy plain or with your favorite bagel fixings! Leftovers may be stored in the refrigerator for a day or two or frozen for longer storage. 

Note: This is a great recipe to get creative with! Try using different spices, spice blends or flavor extracts. Try different dried fruits, chopped into small pieces. Craving something sweet? Try topping the bagels with a streusel topping before baking! If you like savory bagels, simply use plain, unflavored yogurt and omit the fruit, cinnamon, honey and vanilla. Top with everything bagel seasoning or sesame seeds before baking. The possibilities are endless! Enjoy!
