Healthy {No Yeast} Bagels

I know what you're thinking, Healthy Bagels? An oxymoron! Well not these protein packed, low carb, no rise HEALTHY bagels! These 5 ingredient bagels are crazy easy and perfect for a Sunday morning at home or packed up for a healthy breakfast on the go! They are also the inspiration behind my pizza, calzone's, chicken pot pie and any other dough I make really.

Cream Cheese or Egg Sammie?

The hardest choice honestly. My personal favorite will always be a bacon, egg and cheese with a little avocado on an everything bagel but every once in a while that craving hits for a classic cream cheese bagel.

Just a few simple ingredients you probably already have on hand and no excessive kneading required in this recipe!

The greek yogurt packs in protein while the baking powder makes them light and fluffy! Top with an egg white wash for that perfectly brown and crispy outside.

Even the pups love this recipe!

These bagels are a go to for me because they are so easy to make and no rising or waiting required. I've had on my queue to make classic bagels from scratch forever but I always revert back to these ones because they are just that easy.

My favorite topping is probably the Everything But the Sesame Bagel Seasoning from #TraderJoes but I've created a whole list of different bagels, toppings and mix ins for you to try!

My most recent creative endeavor was recreating #Panera's Cinnamon Crunch Bagel for my fiancé. Another sweet favorite of mine is the French toast bagel, sweetened with a touch of maple syrup and cinnamon.

Healthy {No Yeast} Bagels

Makes 4 Bagels | Cook time: 25 minutes | Rest time: 10 minutes

Notes: Healthy protein packed bagels! No rising. No overnight prep. Only 5 basic ingredients!


  • 1 cup (120g) unbleached all purpose flour

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt (225g)

  • 1 egg white, whisked until frothy

  • Optional toppings: see below.


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with nonstick spray.

  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.

  3. Add plain greek yogurt and use a fork to mix the yogurt into the dry ingredients until combined and a dough forms. Add in mix ins, if making a mix in bagel, see below.

  4. Lightly flour a surface and knead the dough until just combined, about 5-10 times.

  5. Cut the ball into 4 even quarters.

  6. Roll each quarter into a ball (tip: for easy handling, place dough balls on a plate and place in the fridge for about 10 minutes, then remove from fridge).

  7. Lightly flour the surface again and use your hands to roll the bagel into a log and attach the two ends together to form a circle.

  8. If making a bagel with toppings, sprinkle the seasoning into 4 spots on the baking sheet. Place a bagel on each spot.

  9. Brush the top of each bagel with the whisked egg white and sprinkle the top with seasoning/topping of choice.

  10. Bake the bagel for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  11. I prefer to slice and toast them slightly but they are nice and doughy if you prefer them fresh out of the oven!

Air Fryer Alternative: to make in the air fryer instead, spray the bottom of the air fryer with nonstick spray or use an air fryer liner. Bake the bagels at 260F for about 15 minutes or until they are nice and brown on top. Remove and allow to cool fully.
