Finding gluten free bagels in the shop can be a challenge – which is why we prefer to make our own! Despite what you may think, making gluten free bagels at home is relatively easy. Although it requires an additional step (boiling the bagels), nothing beats having warm, fresh bagels you can devour right away.

For this recipe, we’re swapping out the flour for gluten free flour mix. However, you can also use rice flour, tapioca flour, or rice flour and cornstarch for the dough instead. And for toppings, we’re using a seed mixture, but feel free to add whatever you want!

Ingredients for Gluten Free Bagels

  • 500g of gluten free flour mix (you can also use tapioca flour, rice flour, and cornstarch in equal ratio)
  • 17g dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tbsp salt
  • 250ml warm water
  • 90 grams of butter (room temperature)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Bagel toppings (we are using a seed mixture)

Materials for Gluten Free Bagels

  1. Mixing bowl
  2. Cling film
  3. Silicone brush (for egg mixture) from Target
  4. Pot for boiling water
  5. Rolling pin (optional)

Gluten Free Bagel Recipe

  1. Pour the flour, dried yeast, sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl from Uncommon Goods. Stir everything together, making it evenly incorporated.
  2. Now, add the room-temperature butter along with the warm water to the flour mixture. Start mixing the wet and dry ingredients together until you have a dough.
  3. For the yeast to activate, we’ll need to let the dough rest for a little bit. Cover the bowl with cling film and let it sit for roughly 10 to 20 minutes. This should be enough time for the yeast to rise and ferment, which is crucial for our gluten free bagels.
  4. While the dough is resting, boil a pot of water on your stovetop. You can also preheat your oven at this time. Preheat it to 400°F or 200°C.
  5. After the dough finishes rising, remove the cling film and place the dough on your working space. Divide the dough into eight pieces (each piece will become a bagel). If you want larger bagels, you can cut them into four pieces. However, we recommend doubling the ingredients so you have eight large bagels instead of four!
  6. Take each piece of dough and roll it into a ball shape (we recommend this rolling pin from Etsy). Now, flatten the ball like a pancake. If you notice that your dough is getting cracks, you can wet your hands before shaping. Because there is no gluten to keep things sticky, water can help with the rolling and shaping process!
  7. Now, create a hole in the middle of the dough to make the bagel hole.

Move It to the Stove

  1. Make sure to keep an eye on your pot of water on the stovetop! Once it’s boiling, drop in a bagel and let it cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute. If your pot is small, we recommend only boiling one bagel at a time.
  2. Once all the bagels boil, place them on the baking tray and brush them with the egg wash.
  3. Sprinkle the top of the bagels with your seed mixture (or any other toppings you want).
  4. Now, place the bagels in the oven and let them bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Remove, let them cool slightly, and enjoy your fresh gluten free bagels!
