Homemade herb and cheddar bagels! No yeast, no rise time, easy to make, and so delicious! These easy Greek yogurt bagels are sure to be a newfound staple in your house.
When I first posted these bagels about a year ago people went CRAZY for them. Everyone I made them for instantly became obsessed. I don't blame them though these are out of this world good. They literally taste exactly like your favourite bakery bagels except you can make them in the comfort of your own home. That means that you can have homemade bagels every single day. Who wouldn't want that?
What is 3-Ingredient Dough?
3-ingredient yogurt dough is my absolute favourite. It's probably one of the most versatile dough's I have ever worked with. It's so easy to make and can be made with literally only three ingredients. All you need is a thick yogurt (think Greek yogurt), all-purpose flour and baking powder. The dough puffs up perfectly, requires 0 yeast and needs no time to rise. It makes all the recipes you thought were hard SO simple. So here is your chance to impress your loved ones with homemade bagels.
PS. If you haven't tried my cinnamon buns yet here is your reminder. They make the process of makign homemade cinnamon buns SO easy, you'll be able to have them every single morning with minimal ingredients, minimal time and ALL the flavour.
What Ingredients do you need for these Greek Yogurt Bagels?
The best part about these easy homemade yogurt bagels is the ingredient list! It is SO short. All you need is the three ingredient dough I was talkign about earlier, some spices you probably already have in your cupboard and some cheese!
Baking Powder- this is important for these yogurt bagels! Don't forget to mix the baking powder with the flour BEFORE adding the yogurt, this helps create a self rising flour to make sure the buns rise!
Flour- I used good ole' all-purpose flour because it's cost efficient and we always have it on hand (meaning cinnamon buns everyday). Note that I have been told 1:1 gluten free flour works just as well but I have not personally tested it!
Yogurt (duh): I've only ever used plain greek yogurt so I can't comment on how alternatives would work- but any thick yogurt should work! If you end up testing an alternative- comment how it worked!
Spices- Oregano, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. These are the only spices you need to have your kitchen smelling AMAZING.
Cheese- I love a good sharp cheddar. I find that a stronger cheese really shines through in these, but feel free to use whatever cheddar cheese you have!
Other easy breakfast recipes to try:
If you found me on Tiktok you know my love of breakfast. Although I don't know if I believe it's the 'most important meal of the day' ( I personalyl believe all meals are important), I do believe that skipping breakfast isn't soemthing anyone should be doing. Especialyl if the reason is soley lack of time! Which is why I love a good easy breakfast recipe that won't take up too much of your morning.
Some of my favourite recipes to either meal prep of make the morning of are:
- chia pudding parfaits
- banana bread oat cups
- oatmeal cookie cups
- air fryer breakfast cookie
- spinach and feta egg cups
