Recipe: Gluten Free/Egg Free Bagels

One of the first successful gluten free recipes that I ever tried, these bagels are fairly simple to make, and they are chewy and delicious!

Gluten Free/Egg Free Bagels
  • 3 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed Meal
  • 1/3 Cup Warm Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Tapioca Starch
  • 2 Tablespoons Potato Starch
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  1. Heat the 3 Tablespoons of water in the microwave and add to it the flaxseed meal. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In another small, microwave safe bowl heat 1/3 cup water just until warmed but not too hot to kill the yeast. Add yeast and sugar and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer combine starches, rice flour, xanthan gum and salt.
  4. Go back to your liquid ingredients and add the flax-egg and the oil to the yeast mixture.
  5. Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and mix on low until combined. Turn mixer to medium and mix for 2 to 3 minutes more.
  6. Pipe or spoon batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet, using wet hands to form your bagels (I just put a circle on the sheet and then make the hole in the center with my wet fingers).
  7. Let rise for about half an hour. They will look a bit puffier, but don't expect them to double in size.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool, cut in half and eat or freeze for later.

Hope you're having a great Sunday, everyone!

  2. I need to try these! I made my own mini vegan gluten-free bagels with coconut flour once and they rocked!
