Calories 262 kcal


  • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1.25 c hot water 110*F
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 240 g all purpose flour (2 c)
  • 240 g vital wheat gluten (2 c)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp optional toppings (garlic, everything seasoning, sesame seeds, etc)


Step 1

  • Let the yeast, hot water and sugar sit for 5 min in a stand mixer bowls or large bowl until it is bubbly.
  • To this bowl, add flour, gluten, oil and salt.
  • Let mix on low speed with a dough hook for 8 min. OR mix until well mixed by hand and knead for 8 min.
  • Place a damp paper towel in the bowl with the dough, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a dark, warm place for 2 hours or until at least doubled.

Step 2

  • Punch the dough down and knead for 5 minutes.
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces (or however many bagels you want.) and shape into balls.
  • Put on a cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • While this is resting, bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tsp baking soda and preheat your oven to 350*F

Step 3

  • Punch down each individual dough ball and squish all the air out.
  • Using your thumbs, poke a hole in the middle and shape it into a ring. The hole will shrink while cooking, so make it bigger than you want it!
  • One by one, boil the bagels for 20-30 seconds per side.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon from pot and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet, leaving room between bagels. ***If you are topping your bagels, you would want to gently press the bagels into a plate of topping (IE onion or garlic flakes etc) while they are wet and put them topping side up on the parchment paper.

Step 4

  • Bake for 20 minutes. Let fully cool before slicing with a serrated bread knife.
