Five ingredient (kid-friendly) skinny bagels!

These bagels hit the Pinterest stream heavy about a year ago or so. They were everywhere and for good reason! These bagels are delicious, easy to make, and cut the amount of carbs in half to a traditional bagel.

Let's take a look at the facts:

Traditional bagel:

Calories: 289 Carbohydrates: 56.1g Protein: 11g Total Fat: 1.7g Sodium: 561mg Dietary Fiber: 2.4g Sugars: 0g

Skinny bagels:

Serving: 1 bagel, Calories: 152kcal, Carbohydrates: 26.5g, Protein: 10g, Fat: 0.3g, Sodium: 434mg, Fiber: 1g, Sugar: 2.5g

Not only do these bagels cut the amount of carbs, but you're also going to have a decrease of 100 to 150 calories depending on the size of your traditional bagel! And the icing on the cake is that these bagels are delicious - my two year old even gobbled them up. I also love them, because they are a blank canvas. I like to add different toppings to mine.

OK, without further ado, here's the recipe (originally posted on


  • 1 cup (5 oz) unbleached all purpose flour, whole wheat or gluten-free mix

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder, make sure it's not expired or it won't rise

  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, use less if using table salt

  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt

  • 1 egg white, beaten (whole egg works fine too)

Here are a few fun optional topping ideas: sesame seeds, Trader Joe's Everything Bagel seasoning, poppy seeds, cinnamon and sugar, onion flakes, the possibilities are endless! Have fun with it :)


  • Preheat oven to 375F.

  • Prep baking dishes - either line with parchment or spray with a non-fat cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well. Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.

  • Dust your working surface with flour and work the dough about 10 to 15 turns (don't overwork) until the dough is not sticky.

  • Divide into 4 equal balls. If any part of the dough is still sticky, I then add a bit of flour to the individual balls. I then make a hole in the center and form into a bagel.

  • Top with egg wash and sprinkle both sides with seasoning of your choice.

  • Bake on the top rack of the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting.

I always double or triple this recipe! They freeze so well and make it so easy to have a grab and go breakfast for you or your kiddos! Please let me know if you try these and what your favorite toppings are! Enjoy!!!

Blessings! Jenna
