Jalapeno Bagels

thumbnail_IMG_7410

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup self-rising flour (I use Gold Medal)
  • 3/4- 1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt (I use Fage)
  • Egg wash (1 tsp water mixed with a beaten egg)
  • 1 Tbsp light cheddar cheese ( I use Trader Joes light three cheese blend)
  • 1 Tbsp canned jalapenos
    ——————————

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, add yogurt first, followed by self-rising flour. Use a rubber spatula to mix together. It will be crumbly at first which is totally normal.
  1. Flour your hands and work surface and begin kneading. I knead my dough in the bowl because its less messy. Knead until you can easily form a ball, about 20-30 turns.
  1. Cut the dough into 4 sections. Roll each section of dough into a long rope about 1/2-3/4″ in diameter. Pinch the two ends together to form a bagel shape.
  1. Transfer to a parchment lined cookie tray. Using a basting brush lightly spread the egg wash over the bagel then sprinkle cheese/jalapenos or any toppings of choice. Bake 15-18 min until golden brown.
  1. These bagels can be stored in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month.

Servings: Makes 4 bagels / 3 Freestyle SmartPoints® each.
