These easy 2 Ingredient Bagels are soft, chewy and have fewer calories than traditional bagels. Only 3 Weight Watchers Smart Points and so delicious!
If you're trying to eat lighter these days, you're going to love these easy 2 ingredient bagels. And even if you're not on Weight Watchers or trying to cut back, you'll still want to try them. They're so good!
My daughter made these homemade bagels during Christmas break. She got the recipe for 2 ingredient dough from a friend, and she couldn't wait to share it with the family.
I admit I was skeptical. I mean, how can you make bagels with only two ingredients?! But since I'm trying to cut back after the holidays, I couldn't wait to try these weight watchers bagels.
How do you make 2 ingredient dough?
All you need for this dough is Greek yogurt and self rising flour. Just combine the yogurt and flour in a large mixing bowl, and that's it.
Do these bagels have eggs?
There are no eggs in the dough. You can make a simple egg wash before baking if you want, but it's not necessary.
How do you make a bagel with two ingredients?
Start by forming the dough into a large ball. It helps to cover your work surface with flour to make it easier to work with the dough.
Next, cut the dough into 4 even pieces, and roll each piece out to form a log. Then, form the dough into a circle, and press the ends together.
Place the bagels on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake! You can use an egg wash if you're adding toppings. We made salt bagels and everything bagels here.
2 ingredient bagels are light and soft and chewy. These also had a tangy taste from the yogurt that made them taste like sourdough to me. You guys, I love these bagels!
You can go crazy with variations here just by using different flavors of yogurt. We made cinnamon raisin, chocolate chip, banana oatmeal, jalapeno, cheese and even peppermint mocha!

2 Ingredient Bagel Recipe
2 Ingredient Bagels
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup plain non-fat Greek Yogurt OR 2 5.3 oz containers of Greek Yogurt
- 1 egg (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and yogurt. Mixture will be somewhat crumbly and sticky to start out with and if mixed further, should form a mound of dough.
- On a floured surface, knead the dough until it is no longer sticking to your hands. Shape the dough into a ball.
- Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Once cut, the dough may become sticky again. This is fine. You can knead the individual balls of dough further if you want.
- Take one of the dough balls and roll it out with your hands until it forms a rope that is roughly the width of both of your hands placed directly next to each other. Combine the two ends of the rope together as to form a ring. You may have to squish down on the ends in order to get the ends to stick. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or a non-stick baking sheet. You have now made a bagel!
- Repeat step 4 with the other balls of dough.
- (Optional) In a separate bowl, roughly whisk an egg. Using a basting brush, apply an egg wash to the bagels. This allows the bagels to brown and crisp up on the top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the bottoms of the bagels are browned. The bagels should be firm at this point.
- Broil the bagels on HI for 1-3 minutes or until the tops are more evenly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Everything Bagels: Sprinkle salt, minced onions, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds on top after applying the egg wash. I used an Everything Bagel seasoning that had all of these already included.
- Salt Bagels: Sprinkle coarse salt on top after applying the egg wash.

Easy. Ingredients in pantry and fridge. Put egg in the batter. Great. Love these. 74 years old and had easy time rolling. Thank you. Can always learn from young people.
I'm so glad you liked the bagels, Charlene. Thank you!

They are fantastic but I bake them at 350 for 22 minutes then increase oven to 550 for 6-10 minutes. Need to watch to make sure they don’t get too well done.
Thanks for sharing, Rona. SO glad you like the bagels!
I made these this morning and they are so dang good! I had stuff I needed to use up before spoiling. I didn’t have self rising flour so I made my own with 1 cup regular flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder and a 1/4 tsp salt, then added two containers of two good coconut yogurt. Mixed it up and put the egg wash on it...perfection! You can make these with any flavor of yogurt! Thank you!
Thank you so much for sharing your tips, Belinda! Glad you like them!
Granted I didn't make a rope and then shape into a round, I just made a ball and poked a hole in the middle, but they are taking forever to cook through. Went through the 30 minutes at 350 and were a great color but uncooked. Back in for another 7 minutes, darker color and still goo in the middle. Now they're back in at a lower temp for another 14 minutes in a hope that the middle won't be just be hot dough.
Sounds like the dough is too thick. We shape them first, and they always come out fine.
I used my air fryer for 10 min they were done but wanted a little darker. I added another 3 min. Perfect!
What is the best way to store these. They are so good I want to make a few batches for the week. Do you think they would freeze well? Thanks for sharing!!
So glad you like the bagels! We usually keep them in zip top bags, but they are gone in a couple of days. I do know that some people have frozen the bagels and reheated them, but I'm not sure about the specifics.
I freeze them with no issues. Just thaw out then eat
OMG these are the best bagels I have ever had. And only 3 WW points. YAY!!!
So glad you like them, Andrea. Thanks!
can this be made without Greek yogurt.
can it be made with Plain Yogurt???
I haven't tried it with regular, but regular yogurt is usually thinner than Greek, so you might need less of it.
These are delicious!!! Would you please share your recipe for the banana bagels?
I have to get it written out. But basically, you sub banana yogurt for the plain and add some cinnamon and a little maple flavoring. 🙂
These were so easy to make. So happy I finally got around to trying. I topped with Trader Joe's everything bagel topping.
We love that topping! So glad you liked them, Joanne. 🙂
Oh my goodness! This recipe is amazing. I couldn’t believe how great these came out with such little effort. Finally, a bagel recipe that is not only diet friendly and easy, but you also know exactly what’s in your bagels. My daughter said these are the best bagels she’s ever had. Thanks for sharing!!
You've made my day, Heidi! Thank you so much -- glad you liked them!
