These two ingredient AIR FRYER BAGELS cook in just 10 minutes! Tastier and fresher than packaged bagels, and so simple to whip up!
Nothing beats a fresh bagel for breakfast – except maybe a fresh bagel smeared with an obscene amount of cream cheese. 😉
Soft, chewy, warm bagels are one of my favorite breakfast (right on the list with the air fryer donuts!) and I love these two ingredient bagels that you can make at home, in minutes, in the air fryer!
Plus, it’s easy to customize the bagels…a little Everything but the Bagel seasoning for my bagels and plain bagels or even cinnamon crunch bagels for the rest of the family.
No matter your preferred bagel flavor, making them from scratch offers the opportunity to enjoy your bagels, your way!
Self-rising flour – This is readily available at nearly every supermarket, but we’re also including instructions for making your own down below.
Greek Yogurt – We use 0% fat yogurt to keep our bagels on the heathier side.
Egg– Not 100% necessary, but it helps the bagels brown nicely when you brush an egg on them before baking.
How to Make Your Own Self Rising Flour:
To make self-rising flour, you just need to add baking soda and salt to the flour. That’s it!
For this recipe, we only need one cup of flour. So we are going to take 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. Stir them all together in a small bowl and you have made your self-rising flour!
Double or triple the recipe to keep on hand for future uses.
How to Make Air Fryer Bagels:
Prepare the dough – Grab a mixing bowl and add your flour and greek yogurt. Stir well and combine until you have a ball of dough. Place the dough onto a flat, floured surface and divide evenly into 4 pieces, then roll those into balls. Use your thumb to make a hole in the center of the dough ball, then stretch out the sides to shape into a bagel.
Cook the bagels– Place the bagels in the air fryer basket without letting them touch each other or the sides of the air fryer. Work in batches if necessary. Brush the tops of the bagels with a beaten egg and then sprinkle with any of your toppings. Air Fry for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Not wanting to make it from scratch? No problem! Just toast your premade bagel for 3 minutes at 375 degrees F in your air fryer!
One day if you store at room temp in an air-tight container. You can keep them in your fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat either use your toaster or an air fryer at 375 degrees F for 4 minutes.
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
Some of our favorite bagel toppings include sesame seeds and everything bagel seasoning.
You could also mix some raisins and cinnamon into the dough for cinnamon raisin bagels.
My favorite is to use everything bagel seasoning. It is a great blend of savory flavors that go great with cream cheese. This also works well when using the bagel to make a sandwich.
If you have a sweet tooth you can add a cinnamon sugar topping too!
