Stop overpaying for Gluten Free Bagels. Making these Gluten Free Bagels at home is easier than you think, and not only are they free from gluten, but from eggs and dairy too.
When you are on a gluten free diet, having a good New York style bagel can be a challenge. In the past year, I have found some fantastic store bought gf bagels, but they can cost up to $8 for 4 of them. With prices like that, having gluten free bagels is a very, very special treat, not something you can eat on a daily basis.
These bagels are not only gluten free, but they are also egg free and dairy free, and they cost about $2.85 for 4, or $0.70 each.
How to make homemade Gluten Free Bagels:
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, slightly warm up the oven to a nice cozy temperature for the bagels to rise.
- Mix the dry ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer, and in another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. With the mixer slowly running, pour in the wet ingredients, then mix on medium speed.
- Grease your hands with shortening. Take 1/4 of the dough, and form it into a bagel shape, being sure to use your finger to create a large hole in the center of the bagel. Repeat to create 4 large bagels or 6 smaller bagels.
- Place the baking sheet in the warm oven, and allow bagels to rise until they have really puffed up.
- While the bagels are rising, get a large pot of water to a rolling boil and add molasses to the water. The molasses will create a nice chewy outside to the bagel.
- When the bagels have finished rising, gently place one bagel at a time in the boiling water. Boil on one side, flip the bagel, and boil again. Remove the bagel and place on a cooling rack that has been placed over another baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the bagels.
- Place boiled bagels back on the parchment lined baking sheet. At this time, you can sprinkle the tops with whatever toppings you desire. Sesame seeds, flax seed, chia seeds, onion flakes, poppy seeds and course salt are just a few ideas.
- Bake bagels until they are a nice golden brown, and try to wait 10 minutes before devouring them.
