Recipe by **Jubes**
From Roben Ryberg's "You Won't Believe It's Gluten-free" Posted in response to a request from the Special Diets Forum. Roben says that you do not need boiling water and that this recipe has a thick, crisp crust. She goes on to say that the bagels are good when first made, but even better after a few hours. You can freeze any extras . I haven't tried this recipe yet

**Jubes** you should try these. These are good for gluten free. There were none left to try after a few hours so I can't tell you if they got better at that point. I made our corn free by using a mix of other starches, mainly tapioca, some potato starch and a little sweet rice flour. I used sea salt, white sugar, canola oil, organic no fat yogurt, I used almost 1 tbs extra organic apple cider vinigar and a bit extra baking soda to make up for not adding baking powder since I can not find one that fits our diet (no corn, cream of tartar or gluten), I replaced the xanthan gum with guar gum to be corn free (but I am looking for another replacer for guar gum if anyone knows!? since it is close to soy in composition and we are soy free) I think it should be clear that they should be piped with a pretty large hole in the middle as most of mine were closed up once baked. I piped these onto a parchment paper lined sheet rather than greased and it worked well. Served with buttered eggs. Made for RECIPE SWAP #48 - January 2011.
- 1⁄2 cup warm water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1⁄3 cup plain yogurt
- 1 cup cornstarch, 125 grams
- 1⁄3 cup rice flour, 50 grams (use a fine milled rice flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (ensure gluten-free)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

- Preheat oven to 350°F Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Mix the warm water and salt in a small spray bottle. Set aside
- Place the egg whites in a medium-size bowl.Beat until very frothy, with big and little bubbles. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well until thick. The dough will appear soft, with many small air bubbles.
- Place the dough in a resealable plastic bag. Cut one inch diagonally off the lower corner of the bag.
- Pipe the dough into three large or 4 small circles onto the prepared baking tray.
- Spray liberally with the salt water. Bake for 5 minutes.
