Tips & Tricks

  • Use Greek Yogurt: Opt for full-fat Greek yogurt for the best texture and flavor. The thickness of Greek yogurt helps bind the dough together and adds richness to the bagels.
  • Choose Self-Rising Flour: Self-rising flour already contains baking powder and salt, which are essential for achieving the right rise and flavor in the bagels. This simplifies the recipe and ensures consistent results.
  • Don’t Overwork the Dough: Be careful not to over-knead the dough, as this can result in tough bagels. Mix the ingredients until just combined and then gently knead until smooth.
  • Shape the Bagels Properly: When shaping the dough into bagel forms, ensure they are uniform in size and thickness. This helps them cook evenly in the air fryer.
  • Use an Egg Wash: Brushing the bagels with an egg wash before baking gives them a shiny, golden exterior. It also helps any toppings, such as sesame seeds or everything bagel seasoning, adhere to the surface.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheating the air fryer helps ensure even cooking and a nicely browned exterior. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for preheating time and temperature.
  • Give Space Between Bagels: Leave some space between the bagels in the air fryer basket to allow for proper air circulation. This prevents them from sticking together and ensures they cook evenly.
  • Flip Halfway Through Cooking: To ensure both sides of the bagels are evenly browned, flip them halfway through the cooking time. This helps achieve a uniform texture and color.
  • Check for Doneness: Keep an eye on the bagels towards the end of the cooking time to prevent them from over-browning. They should be golden brown on the outside and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  • Let Them Cool Before Serving: Allow the bagels to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. This allows them to firm up slightly and makes them easier to handle.

FAQs about Air Fryer Bagels

While Greek yogurt is recommended for its thick consistency and higher protein content, you can use regular yogurt as a substitute. Keep in mind that the texture and flavor may vary slightly.

Yes, you can use whole wheat flour, but you’ll need to add baking powder and salt to the dough to ensure proper rise and flavor. Use 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt for every cup of whole wheat flour.

Air fryer bagels are best enjoyed fresh on the day they are made. However, you can store leftover bagels in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Alternatively, you can freeze them for up to 1 month and reheat them in the air fryer when ready to eat.

Yes, you can customize your bagels by adding toppings such as sesame seeds, poppy seeds, everything bagel seasoning, or cheese before air frying them. Simply sprinkle the toppings over the egg-washed bagels before placing them in the air fryer.

To prevent sticking, lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray or oil before placing the bagels in it. You can also use parchment paper or silicone baking mats to line the basket.

Yes, you can shape the dough into mini bagels or different shapes if desired. Adjust the cooking time accordingly, as smaller or differently shaped bagels may cook faster than standard-sized ones.

Yes, you can customize the flavor of the bagels by adding ingredients like cinnamon, raisins, blueberries, or chocolate chips to the dough. Simply mix in the desired ingredients before shaping the dough into bagels.

Yes, you can reheat the bagels in the air fryer for a few minutes until warmed through. This helps restore their freshness and crispness.

Yes, you can prepare the dough ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. Simply cover the dough tightly with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container before refrigerating. Allow the dough to come to room temperature before shaping and air frying the bagels.

Yes, you can bake the bagels in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Adjust the baking time as needed based on your oven’s temperature and the size of the bagels.

  1. Hello I’m Sherry and on my attempt to make these bagels I couldn’t find self rising bread flour anywhere in my area of Long Island, New York. If you would be so kind as to tell me where I can find that flour I would truly appreciate it. Thanks for response in advance. BTW I made the bagels with just self rising flour and they come out pretty good and tasted great. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    1. Sherry,
      From what I read in the recipe, you are supposed to use self rising flour. I don’t think self rising bread flour exists, as most bread recipes use yeast. The addition of baking powder in the flour wouldn’t be needed. So, I believe you used the correct flour.

    2. @Sarah, I had the same problem and I made my own self rising flour by adding 1.5 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt to 1 cup flour! They turned out amazing !

    1. You can use milk or oil to get a similar finished result, but make sure you include that when figuring your points. You can also use plain water if you just need toppings like sesame seeds to adhere to the top.

  2. Hi. I’m making these today and was wondering which setting you used on the Ninja Foodi? Do you use the Aircrisp or the bake/roast?

    Thanks!

    1. @Melissa, I have a breville smart combo and I followed the recipe and used AIRFRY (400 degrees)15 minutes was perfect.

    1. Mine also did I am also wondering what could have happened. The flavor is very good though. Glad I tried it and I hope she will update with a suggestion on what we can do differently. I baked mine in a conventional oven.

  3. I followed the instructions on this site and the WW site for this recipe. Both ways the dough was always very under cooked and practically raw. I think I will just buy my bagels! Glad I tried though.

    1. You can also bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Try air frying only 2 at a time. The hot air needs to circulate in order to cook. Your basket may have been too crowded.

    2. @Maureen, I make 6 mini bagels from this recipe and bake them on top rack for 15 minutes at 350 and then broil on low for about 5 minutes or u til tops are golden. They’re never doughy

  4. I’d like to try this recipe, however, you reference self-rising bread flour. No such thing. There is bread flour. There is self-rising flour, which is AP flour with baking powder. So. Which did you use?

    1. @Karen Johnston, self rising flour does exist but if you don’t have it just add baking powder to your flour.

    2. @Wayne Lowery,
      Self rising flour definitely exists. You can find it in the flour section at any grocery store including Walmart.

  5. I tried it using Light&Fit strawberry flavored Greek yogurt. Absolutely wonderful, 1 extra point per bagel. I will definitely make these again!

  6. So this was my first ever recipe in the air fryer… and I didn’t follow directions very well (I added the egg in the dough mixture, lol), but 15 minutes later an WOWZA!!! Real, hot, homemade bagels/bread. Now, I have to find a GF recipe for my husband and we’ll be golden. Thanks so much! I’m liking this thing!

    1. Kathi, I am going to try this GF using a 1-1 GF flour such as king Arthur or Pillsbury and add the salt and baking powder as if you were making homemade self rising flour. I will also add the egg like you did here as GF stuff as you know is so dry. I’ll be doing this within the next couple days as I’m out of GF flour currently.. Ill be back in touch after ..

  7. Have you (or anyone else) tried making air-fryer bagels with gluten-free flour? I know that can make things trickier but thought it worth asking?

    1. @Jessica, I made these with Better Batter GF flour. Added 1.5 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. I air-fried at 400* for 12 minutes. The inside was a little doughy, but we managed to eat them 🙂 so I’m going to try them again baking at 350* and see if that helps. Yummy!

    1. @Cheryl, Hi Cheryl. I made these bagels this morning using Fage 0% Milk fat Greek yogurt. Followed the remaining directions to a tee only to add Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel seasoning after I egg washed the bagel. Air fryed them in my Ninja for about 11 minutes, until golden brown on top. I just have one word to describe these “gems”…FANTASTIC!!!!!

  8. Why do my bagels never rise that high? 😢 Mine seem to come out like hockey pucks. I’d upload a picture, if I knew I could

  9. They came out perfect! I did have to cook them for two additional minutes. When I took them out after 10 minutes, they were a little gooey in the middle instead of having a bread-like texture. After the two extra minutes …. perfection!!

  10. I made these bagels this morning using Fage 0% Milk fat Greek yogurt. Followed the remaining directions to a tee only to add Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel seasoning after I egg washed the bagel. I also used Gold Medal Self-Rising Flour that I purchased at Walmart. Air fryed all 4 bagels in my Ninja for about 11 minutes, until golden brown on top. I just have one word to describe these “gems”…FANTASTIC!!!!!

    BTW, after calculating the points using my WW app, the points came out to 4 points per bagel. Well worth EVERY point!!!! =0)

  11. Just made these for the first time, very good! I used everything bagel seasoning on them! What is the shelf life for theses, also should they be stored in the fridge? Thanks!

  12. Hi. Just made these and all I can say is Wow!!! I only have 1 question: is 1 serving actually all 4 bagles?

  13. I’ve made these bagels several times and they are delicious , how many points are they for weight watchers?

  14. Just made these bagels and they are EXCELLENT! 4 fit perfectly into my Ninja. A definite keeper and so easy to make. Wish I had a break out of the nutritional value.

  15. Tried this recipe for the first time today and had amazing results…they were a huge hit!! Only thing different that I did was spray the basket bottom with a cooking spray….delicious!!

  16. I made these this morning and they were delicious!! I cooked mine for 17 minutes at 350 they were moist and crispy. Thank you.

  17. Finally made these. So easy! They were light and fluffy and less dense(?) than a regular bagel. Making again today

  18. I have found the best yogurt to use it makes the texture just like biscuits.
    It’s Two Good! Best I have tried and I have tried many.

  19. I love cinnamon raisin bagels. Do you think I could make this with half whole wheat flour (adding 3/4 tsp baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt) and half SR flour, adding cinnamon and raisins? I know the points would change but I don’t mind that.

  20. These are really delicious! I used all purpose GF flour. I added 1/2 tsp of Xantham gum, about 1-1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and a dash of salt. They rose up while baking in the air fryer. I baked it for about 13 mins. It was easy to knead and cut into 4 pieces. Got 4 delicious GF bagels out of it!

    P.S. I’ve seen many questions about self rising flour. In Iowa, we can get that anywhere. Walmart and any other grocery store. I have it, but I couldn’t use it because it’s not GF. Hence the Xantham gum, and baking powder.

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I think I’ll use it to make flat breads too!

  21. I am almost 80 y/o. My son gave me an Instant Pot about 5 years ago. I am afraid to try it. Seems like there are so many variables and things to go wrong.
    I don’t have an air fryer either.
    Could you give alternate instructions for regular ovens?
    Just found your blog. You have the most interesting recipes.
    I am of German descent but I LOVE Italian food.
    I was born and raised in Texas so naturally Mexican food or Tex-Mex is our choice for many meals and/or snacks.
    Thanks so much
    Elizabeth
