Roben Ryberg's - Gluten-Free Bagels

READY IN: 50mins
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.
