This post and giveaway are sponsored by Hamilton Beach. I have received the a Hamilton Beach Air Fryer for review, however, all opinions are my own. #ad #HamiltonBeach

If you ever thought about making your own bagels but stopped when you read the recipe directions and how detailed they were.  There’s rising of the dough, and boiling the dough, then baking them.  It’s all an day thing.  Don’t get me wrong, I love baking bread and will do so all day long. If I am in the mood for a bagel, I sort of want it then and not later.  It’s easier to go buy one from the store.  

This recipe is going to blow your mind! Seriously, when I first saw the recipe, I was totally jumping up and down with joy. Not only can you make these bagels in 15 minutes using an air fryer, but you can also make them in the oven in about 30 minutes.  I’m all for that 15 minute bagel, my friends.  Plus, making them at home, you can season (or not) the bagels however you wish.  Everything seasoning, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, cinnamon & raisins, and on and on.

Simple ingredients are in these, too.  Flour, baking powder, Greek non-fat yogurt, and a tiny bit of salt.  Egg wash the tops of the bagels if you want, season and bake.  Simple.  You’ll just be amazed at how light, tender, and delicious they are.

Secret: I’ve made them three times in two days.  There were zero left after two days. 

Another secret:  This Hamilton Beach Air Fryer is amazing, and makes great bagels, wings, fries, and so so much more.  I can’t stop using it.

Homemade Bagels Recipe

Making bagels usually involves boiling the dough, but this recipe eliminates that process.  Since this recipe has very few ingredients, you most likely have everything to bake these bagels.  

You’ll need to whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Then add the nonfat Greek yogurt and mix together with a fork.  I have only use Greek nonfat yogurt for this recipe.  

Lightly flour your work surface, and then knead dough until it’s smooth and not sticky.  The dough should not stick to your hands when you pull away.  It usually takes about 20 times kneading for the dough to be ready.

Divide the dough into four equal portions, roll each into about a 3/4 inch thick rope.  Join the ends.

Brush with beaten egg.  Add your seasonings, if using and then bake in the air fryer for 15 minutes.  Don’t crowd them in the air fryer basket.  I can get two in my basket easily.

Once the bagels are done, remove and let cool on wire rack for 15 minutes before slicing.  If you want to bake them in the oven:  preheat oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with  a slipmat or parchment paper. (spray parchment with non-stick spray). Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes.

  1. What a great recipe. I recently bought an air fryer and although the few things I prepared in it were delicious, I was thinking it really didn’t do much. How wrong was I? Guess I need to research some other recipes. TFS.

  2. Tater tots would be the first thing I would cook in it. I would also like to try chicken nuggets and other finger foods.

  3. I would love to use an air fryer, I think it is not only versatile, but healthier than conventional frying.

  4. 5 stars
    These were so easy to make and delicious! We made one with chocolate chips in the dough for my son. Can’t wait to try different kinds.

    I just came here to say that the brand of yogurt you use matters! I have made these a handful of times and really struggled because the dough would be super goopy and sticky. But my husband loved how they tasted so I continued to try to make them. The last time I was so over it and decided the stickiness can’t be normal otherwise the recipe wouldn’t be as much of a success as everyone says. So this time, I got the Costco Kirkland Greek yogurt and let me tell you, it was like I was actually kneading dough this time! And I didn’t wash half of it down the drain from it being stuck to my hands! My bagels are in the air fryer now and I’m soooo excited to eat them now!
