How To Make Two Ingredient Bagels
Preheat the oven to 350. If using, prepare your melted vegan butter by melting it in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix your everything bagel seasoning (or use store-bought).
Mix the 2 ingredient bagel dough by using a fork to mix the non dairy yogurt and flour together until a thick dough forms. If the dough is too wet and sticky, add another 2-4 tablespoon of flour until it rolls easily. Use your hands to roll about ¼ cup of dough into a ball and then use your thumb to press into the center of the ball, creating a 1 inch hole. The shape should resemble a bagel. Place each bagel onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
To make everything bagels, use a pastry brush to brush the tops of each bagel with melted vegan butter and then sprinkle the tops with everything bagel seasoning (about ½ tablespoon each + more to taste). Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bagels are lightly golden on the bottom.
To give the bagels more color, you may broil them for 1-2 minutes at the end.
To make cinnamon sugar bagels, leave the bagels plain and then bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bagels are lightly golden on the bottom. While the bagels bake, melt 2 tablespoon of vegan butter in a small bowl. In a separate larger bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together. Once the bagels are done baking, let them cool before using a pasty brush to brush the tops with melted vegan butter. Then, roll the top of the bagel into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Slice your bagels in half and serve with spread with vegan butter or vegan cream cheese.
Storing leftovers: These are best warm out of the oven. If you have leftovers, let cool completely and store in a zip baggie or other airtight container for up to one day. Or refrigerate them for up to 3 days.
Freezing: To freeze them, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer-safe bag. When you're ready to enjoy, let them thaw before toasting.
