This easy recipe for gluten free bagels are boiled and then baked to get the perfect texture. These homemade bagels are made with yeast and I used everything seasoning on top. They are perfect for breakfast or a snack with cream cheese spread on them.



1 cup Warm Water
1 1/4 tsp. Active Dry Yeast
2 tsp. Honey
3 cups Gluten Free Flour
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
4 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1 Tbsp. Molasses
1 large Egg


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

In a small bowl add the warm water and honey. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let stand for 5-10 minutes until the mixture starts to get foamy on top. 

In the bowl of your mixer beat together the gluten free flour, salt and butter. You can use your dough hook or the beater at this point. Add the yeast mixture and blend until a dough forms.

Divide the dough into five even balls. Form each ball into a bagel shape and place on the baking sheet.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the baking soda and molasses to the boiling water.

Carefully lower 1-2 bagels at a time into the boiling water. Boil on one side for 3 minutes and then flip and boil on the other side for 1 minute. Carefully remove them from the pot and place them on the baking sheet.

In a small bowl beat the egg until frothy. Brush each bagel with egg and then sprinkle with salt or everything bagel seasoning. 

Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The bagels will be golden brown when they are done.
