From Roben Ryberg's "The Gluten Free Kitchen" These bagels are easy, tasty, and amazingly light!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and put a pot of salted water on to boil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine milk, yeast and sugar.
  3. Stir well to dissolve yeast.
  4. Mix in egg.
  5. Add remaining ingredients.
  6. Mix well to remove all lumps.
  7. Divide dough into 6 disks, press a hole in middle of each disk and shape into bagels. (these will rise quite a bit - so be sure to make a big hole).
  8. Gently place bagels into boiling water. Boil bagels (I boil each separate) for approx 1 minute.
  9. Remove bagles from water and place on a greased baking sheet or one sprinkled with cornmeal.
  10. Bake 15-18 mins or until golden brown.

These bagels were great. I was a little skeptical at first because of the flour mixture, but the texture was better than I expected. I substituted tapioca flour for the cornstarch, used dairy free milk replacer, as well as egg replacer and they turned out great. Because I made my bagels larger I only got 3, so next time I will make a double batch so I can freeze the extras.

Sorry, but unless something was left off the recipe, as posted, there very dry and didn't taste like any non GF bagel I've ever eaten. I followed the recipe as posted, but had to add more milk to dry ingrediants to get dough to stay together. If I ever attempt this recipe again I'll substitute some of the starches with almond or coconut flour.

This was my very first attempt at GF Bagels and I was scared I would make some kind of mistake. I didnt know which yeast to use...rapid rise or regular so I used Rapid Rise. I just ran out of Potato Starch as well so I read someone used Tapioca Starch so I substituted that as well. I had everything else. I placed the bagels on the parchment paper to bake them and I had to bake 22 minutes to get them golden. They did come out YUMMY! I was surprised how easy this recipe is. I was scared as it seemed to easy. I thought you had to rise the bagels but they came out fine without that step. I immediately cut one in half and toasted it and spread on some yummy cream cheese for a delicious snack.
