2 Ingredient Bagels Will Change Your Life

In the Weight Watchers community, 2 ingredient dough is life. Folks use it to make pizza, pretzels, cinnamon rolls, and of course bagels.

I discovered 2 ingredient bagels from Connect, and was instantly hooked!

Regular bagels are around nine points, and 2 ingredient bagels are only three points.

Three point bagels!

They are soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, just like a bagel should be. Also, when you toast them and slather them with butter, they are little pieces of heaven.

My favorite way to eat these bagels is with eggs and low fat American cheese, or Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss, which only adds one point. That makes an egg and cheese sandwich for only four points.

As the name suggests, these bagels are also super easy to make.

2 Ingredient Bagels Step by Step

Start with two cups of Fage, or other zero calorie Greek yogurt.

Add two cups of self-rising flour.

If you are using an electric mixer, make sure you are using your dough hook.

Mix the two ingredients until you have a dough that pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Remove dough from the bowl and divide it into eight sections.

If you are on Weight Watchers, I would suggest weighing each section so that you know they are all the same size.

Roll each section into a ball, and use a finger to poke a hole in the middle.

I used to roll these out, then make a circle and press the two ends together, but making a ball and poking a hole is so much easier.

Place uncooked bagels onto a prepared baking pan.

Brush each one with egg wash, or egg whites.

And then top with whatever topping your heart desires.

Now you might be thinking, wait a minute, that’s four ingredients not two! And you are absolutely right.

I honestly think this same thing whenever I make these. They are more like two main ingredients, one secondary, and miscellaneous tertiary ingredients. But that really doesn’t have a great ring to it.

Bake these bad boys at 375 for 20 minutes or until beautifully golden brown.

Transfer the cooked bagels to a cooling rack and let them cool, if you’ve got the will power.

If you are going to eat these warm, I’d suggest giving them a quick toast in the toaster oven. I think they are a little moist on the inside, and unless that’s your jam, you may want to dry them out a bit.

If you are going to let them cool all the way, I wouldn’t worry about it.

Keep these in your fridge or your freezer.

If you’re not going to eat them in the next day or two, I’d suggest cutting and freezing them and then toasting them out of the freezer.

I really think that the key to successful weight loss, is allowing yourself to eat the things you enjoy. Bagels are one of my favorite foods. Some days, I day dream about them.

Until I made these bagels I really felt deprived, and then when I had a regular bagel, I felt guilty.

I eat these bagels with reckless abandon, sometimes I’ll even have two in one day!

Such decadence.

    I LOVE the two ingredient bagels and I actually just use two ingredients as I like them plain. I’ve used that dough to make pizza, top pot pies, make breadsticks to go with soup… it is a lifesaver. I completely agree that without it I would feel deprived of all those “bread-like” foods that I love.

      Oooooh topping pot pies is such an awesome idea! I’m definitely going to try that. I also really want to try pretzels and cinnamon rolls.

        Making the dough in the stand mixer is just genius! I hadn’t done that before and wow, what a difference. I also like the idea of just ping a hole in the middle instead of trying to roll them out and get them to stick to one another. You saved me lots of time.

          Omg right?! I make this dough so much more since I started using the dough hook. And I was not great at rolling and pinching, haha.

    I don’t like bagels…..I know, there is something wrong with me.
    But I am not a fan. HOWEVER, these look amazing and like something I could do at home for my bagel lover (Anna).

    Maybe if I incorporate chocolate…..that’s always the answer for me.

      I WISH I didn’t like bagels! Consider it a blessing!

      This dough is also amazing for pizza. I might do another post just dedicated to the wonder that is 2 ingredient pizza dough. I made a pizza for my son with it and he said it was on par with the take out we usually get. High praise from a food snob (he gets that from his momma).

    Can I use full-fat yogurt or it won’t work here? 🙂

      Hi Ewa! You can use full-fat, just make sure that it’s Greek yogurt. The low moisture is the key!

    WHAAAT? These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them. I don’t have a mixer with a dough hook, so I may get a work out by mixing them by hand, but I’m definitely going to do it! I’m really glad you shared the recipe with us at Thursday Favorite Things.

      Thank you Pam! I hope you try them! And mixing by hand is just as good, just make sure to use flour on your hands because the dough is super sticky. Let me know how it goes!
