  • 1 cup self-rising flour or 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 and ½ baking powder, and ¼ tsp salt mixed together
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • Toppings of your choice


  • Combine self-rising flour and Greek Yogurt in a bowl and stir until they are fully combined together. Once this is done you will want to place the dough on a floured surface and knead until you form a ball with the dough.
  • Separate the dough into 4 equal-sized pieces and then roll them into circles. Lightly flatten them and stick a hole in the middle.
  • Use a pastry brush and spread the egg over the bagel dough. Top with your favorite toppings. Bake in the Air fryer or oven.

Air Fryer Method

  • Lightly spray the Air Fryer Basket with oil and place the bagels inside. Cook on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes or until tops are golden and the bagel is cooked through. Remove and allow it to cool.

Oven Method

  • Place the bagels on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Place in an oven that has been preheated to 450 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes until the tops are golden. Serve and enjoy!



  • Try not to over-knead the dough when making this recipe. A light roll into a ball is all you need. Over-kneading will cause the bagels to become tough.
  • Omitting the egg wash will cause the top of the bagels to become tough and hard rather than nice and crusty. I wouldn’t omit it in this recipe.
  • These bagels can be stored in your refrigerator for 3-4 days or they can be frozen.
