These 2 ingredient air fryer bagels were so good, they disappeared within minutes

These 2 ingredient air fryer bagels taste AMAZING!

For only a couple of main ingredients and very little cooking time, this is a definite must-try recipe! I love that there’s no yeast required, no boiling, and the dough comes together easily.

Hip Tip: Don’t have self-rising flour? For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 2 teaspoons of baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

You can even slice and toast these 2 ingredient air fryer bagels

Love everything-flavored bagels?

I do, too! Ideally, my favorite is Everything Bagel Seasoning like Trader Joe’s carries! I didn’t have that on hand, so I combined poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic flakes, onion flakes, and salt to make my own. It’s so good!

It’s also worth mentioning that this is a Weight Watchers idea and is said to be 3 smart points per bagel. Consider using this simple dough in other ways too, like breadsticks, pizza, calzones, etc!

And let me know when you do, because I’ll be right over to help taste test! 🤣

    Hey Lina, thanks for the grt ideas!

  4. kimmy8

    ok sooo trying this .
    thanks for the recipes
    I’ve had my fryer over a year and haven’t really made anything from scratch or fresh except to cook frozen foods.
    I’m excited to try these.
    the sweet potato fries yum

    • Lina D

      I think you’ll love it!

  5. 50ShadesofLipstick

    Trader Joe’s makes an amazing product called “Everything but the Bagel” sesame seasoning blend. It is a MUST, if you make homemade bagels and breads!

    • CO Mama

      Yes! Was just coming to say this! LOVE Everything But The Bagel Sprinkles 😍

    • Lina D

      Yes! I want to try it!

    • Patricia Kennedy

      Walmart has their own brand of everything bagel seasoning also!

  6. Jessica

    where can we find all your air fryer recipes? I just bought one and am excited to try it out.

  7. Tracy

    Thank you! These look so yummy. Has anyone tried making these with a gluten free flour?

    • Lina D

      I have not personally tried – but I read you defiantly can. Don’t forget to add the baking powder and salt 👍

    • Kathleen

      I tried making with Namaste GF flour. I added the baking powder and cooked them for the time stated. Mine turned out very gummy inside. I will try again soon

  8. Juli

    Love the recipes!!!
    Any chance you have any gluten free “bread” ones that you coul share? Donuts, bagels, etc….. buying gf bread products totoally breaks the bank

    • coolrocks

      If you have an aldi near you they have a ton of gluten free products for extremely decent prices.. I love their gluten free bread

  9. Opie

    Yikes, these look awful. This is an insult to bagels.

    • Beverly

      LOL, I am a NYer and therefore a bagel snob. I was wondering how good could these bagels really be? Opie, I wouldn’t put them down until you taste them. I think the idea of making them fresh at home in the air fryer is really cool. If u knew something about baking science u would know that yogurt + self rising flour has all the ingredients u need to bake bread…or in this case, bagels. On the other hand, it’s not a bagel without NY water!

  10. Ruby

    It says they can be baked in a regular oven at the twice the time. An air fryer is small table top convection oven. So if you bake them in a regular convection oven instead, the time should be the same.

    • Lina D

      It’s a smaller space so takes less time. I actually just used this dough for a diff purpose and took 25 min in my oven – hope that helps. Try it! 👍

      • coolrocks

        You can use this same concept to make pizza .. which is delicious btw

        • Lina D

          Yes! I love that idea 👍

  11. Amie

    These are good!

    • Lina D

      Great! Thanks for sharing Amie!

  12. Moni B.

    Thank u so much. How about whole-wheat bagels? Trying to eat healthier. Is that possible with an air fryer? I will def try this in my as-of-yet unopened air fryer box!

    • Hunterwoody

      I used while wheat flower and it was great. But almond flour did NOT work 😂

  13. erika maxwell

    I know that yogurt and sour cream can be exchanged for each other in certain recipes. Would this be one, or is there something different about Greek yogurt where sour cream wouldn’t work in this instance?

    • Lina D

      I don’t believe you can substitute sour cream in this instance.

  14. Wanda K

    If you use a regular oven what temperature do you use? Could I use regular flavored yogurt?

    • hellfiregainz

      No, it would make the dough too runny. Greek yogurt is thicker.

    • LaTrice

      I would strain it using cheesecloth 1st…bascally a diy greek yogurt.

  15. Chelle L.

    Want to try this. Sounds delicious but do you happen to know what the carbs would be?

    • Judy

      I don’t know – but if your flour shows how much is in one cup, and your yogurt shows the content of 8oz, just add them and divide by 4. It should be close.

  16. Lin

    Thanks Lina! Love your posts. Do you know if I can substitute the AP flour for almond flour?

    • Lina D

      I’ve heard it comes out sticky —however, I’ve heard you could add a teaspoon of gluten free baking powder to the basic fathead keto dough, which is cream cheese, mozz cheese, egg, and almond flour…and it should rise. I’m going to try it soon! <3 Hope that helps!

    • Hunterwoody

      Almond flour never baked for me. It ended up being like burnt cheese 😂

  17. Susan Johnson

    Could I use almond or coconut flour to make these low carb?

  18. hellfiregainz

    I do something similar but cut the flour in half and use protein powder for the remaining half.

    • Lina D

      That’s smart!! Thanks for sharing 👍

  19. Tara

    I love two ingredient dough. I use it for my pizza dough, pretzels and have made cinnamon rolls.

    • Lina D

      That’s fantastic!

  20. JES

    I guess I’m gonna have to breakdown and order an air fryer, these look so yummy!

  21. Jennifer

    I think you convinced me….. Which airfryer should I get ? Any deals out there

  22. Maite Cabrera

    I loooooove bagels!!!! Don’t have an air fryer but I do have an oven and I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you so much!!!😊

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome!

  23. Rachael

    These are so good and so easy! I’ve only made in the oven, but got an air fryer yesterday and I cannot wait to make them in the air fryer! I see a fried egg bagelwich in my future!

    • Lina D

      YES! Let us know how you like your air fryer! 👍

  24. Nicole

    Sorry if I missed it, buy nutrition facts? Carb count?

  25. erika maxwell

    I made these today using the self rising flour substitute and 2% Greek yogurt. They turned out like biscuits, not bagels. Tasty, but not bagels.

  26. erika maxwell

    So when you say a cup of yogurt, do you mean 8 oz, or just the single 5.3 oz standard yogurt cup?That might be my problem.

    • Evan

      Agreed.. when providing recipes for preparing anything, you should use detailed instructions. I have cups of every size shape and color. Should I use my opaque purple cup or my yellow dinosaur cup??

  27. KK

    Just made these and they were perfect! Highly recommend!

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing! ❤️

  28. Gus

    When you say 1 cup of yogurt, do you mean one typical packaged cup of yogurt (6 oz) or 1 measuring cup?

    Thanks!
    Gus

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I just used a measuring cup. Hope that helps 👍

      • Gus

        Perfect…thank you!

  29. April

    I would like to by an air flyer but not sure which one to buy. In Canada I do not have much choice to pick from. I have a tfal one but cannot do to much with it.

  30. Lorie

    It wasn’t that I didn’t believe this would work, wasn’t sure I could make it work! They were easy, great pictures to follow (thank u for that), BUT REALLY GOOD!!!!!! For one person perfect think I will leave them in a minute or two longer next time so the inside is a little more done. I love my air fryer, cook mostly from scratch except fries, I have a smaller one perfect for one or two. Love your sight thanks for your hard work and making cooking fun!!!!!

  31. Joan

    I am struggling with the dough. Very sticky and hard to handle. I add a little additional flour but that doesn’t help. I know many use Fage yogurt and I am using Oikos. Appreciate any tips. Thank you.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya it is a sticky dough in general. Making sure to flour your hands and the cutting board you’re working on is helpful.

    • Marcia

      We love our bagels and I’ve made two batches now which turned out so good I’m shocked. Ive been telling friends and it’s “well I like Montreal bagels” or “i like NY bagels”. For heavens sake use a cup of flour and try them. I used 2% yogurt the first time and whole yogurt the second. Both worked.

  32. Linde

    Would it be possible to add asiago cheese to the batter and have them turn out? And of course, tons on top!!

  33. judy Moses

    I agree. They are interesting but they do not taste like bagels. Keep trying.

  34. Mari

    I’m a bit late to the party but I’m here! Have made these twice already since I got my air fryer less than two weeks ago, and they’ve turned out really good! I even added cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins for cinnamon raisin bagels! Blueberry bagels next. 😀

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum!! That all sounds awesome 👏

  35. EC

    These are delish and SUPER easy!!!! Thank you for sharing.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good thanks so much ❤️

  36. PC Lane

    I followed the directions and made the bagels today. They looked beautiful and smelled heavenly however, they were raw inside. Has anyone else had this issue??

    • Micki

      Yes. I had to add more. The dough was also super sticky. They were more like biscuits.

  37. Valerie Green

    I just made these bagels. 2 I worked the everything but the bagel seasoning into the dough and the other 2 I added 1/3 cup shredded taco cheese that I worked into the dough. I had to bake them 5 minutes longer and I didn’t stretch them out big enough because the hole in the middle almost filled in. I ate the cheese bagel for dinner and it was amazing! Glad I put all the goodies inside so I didn’t loose any to the toaster or floor!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’m so glad it all worked out Valerie! Thank you so much for sharing ❤️

  38. Amber

    A lot of people on weight watchers make these, they also use the same recipe for pizza dough and biscuits!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I’ve seen that too! Can’t wait to try pizzas

  39. Anna

    Can you make this with almond flour? I am trying to lose weight and don’t want to eat flour? Have you tried it with any other flour?

  40. VB Vee

    Last week I picked up a container of Spice Supreme “Everything Bagel Mix” in the spices section at Dollar Tree. Did not have a specific use in mind at the time. Just figured $1 wasn’t a bad price.
    Just received an Air Fryer today that I had ordered last weekend.
    All I need is the Yogurt and I will be set to give this recipe a try.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! You’ll love these and great find 🙂

      • VB Vee

        Just a heads up to anyone interested in the spice mix. The Everything Bagel Mix is a spice blend shake on type seasoning sold in a shaker jar. It is sold along side the regular spices…garlic powder, italian seasoning, onion powder, etc…. It has the type seasoning and seeds seen on anytime italian loaf bread like what Walmart sells. I haven’t noticed the spice at all Dollar Trees.

  41. April

    These look soooooooo delicious!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks April!

  42. Paula

    Recommendations on air fryers please? So many brands and features!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I have a nuwave and power xl. Love them both!

  43. Amanda

    I apologize if someone has already asked this, but do you know a keto friendly version for the air fryer? Thanks in advance.

  44. barb

    Oh my goodness thank you Lina!! I love my air fryer (thank you H2S) who introduced the airfyer world to me, you’re great enablers, lol!!! I use mine all the time for Salmon (it’s amazing!!), Shrimp, asparagus (amazing too) diced potatoes, fried chicken, zucchini, and that’s all I can think of at the moment! But I’ve never tried donuts or bagels – I’m so excited to try them! Thank you Lina for posting your amazing recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I’m so happy Barb! Wow you’re an air frying pro now! ❤️👏 Thanks for the sweet comment.

  45. Graviey

    I made these yesterday for my daughters. Today I made 4 more batches. My girls love them! I made blueberry, cinnamon sugar, everything, and plain. They are amazing. I wish I could post pictures here.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh my goodness how awesome! Thanks for sharing Graviey!

  46. Mary Anne

    Can these be made Gluten Free?

  47. Micki

    Be careful if you don’t have a nonstick air fryer basket. They stuck terribly. Also, the dough is super sticky and not smooth at all. Your photos look like you used two separate batches of dough for the pictures. They were tasty but more like a biscuit than a bagel. Next time, I’m going to try mixing in my stand mixer to get a smoother consistency.

  48. Jessica

    I’ve made these before and they are awesome!!! Is there anyway you can make these while on a Keto diet??? I tried a couple of times but they never came out right, do you have any idea?
    Thanks!

  49. Cindy

    Maybe it depends on the brand yogurt used but I found it way too sticky and hard to handle with only 1 cup of flour. I probably added an additional 1/4 to get it the way it looked in picture.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ok thanks for the suggestion Cindy!

  50. Allie

    That did not turn out tasty at all, and I’ve made pizza dough with those ingredients before… are we supposed to eat them once they are cooled off?

  51. Rosa

    Hi—I’m curious how far in advance you can make the dough? Can I make it the night before?

    • Jessica Kilburn

      You use the dough straight away cos it doesn’t need to be proved xx

  52. Nina

    Does this work with normal yogurt (not greek)? If not and I want to use it do I have to change the ratio of the flour and yeast? thanks!

    • Nina

      I’m sorry, of course I meant “If so” 🙂 !

  53. Kathy O'Rourke

    I am a lifetime WW member and have been using the two ingredient dough for a while. It is great for many things (like a hot dog wrap, or biscuits). I have never thought of using my air fryer to cook them (have always done it in the oven.) So, thanks again Colin for another great idea. One extra step that I do (but it can be messy) is that I boil them for about a minute before I bake them. It makes them puff up so they look a bit larger. Can be difficult to flip them in the boiling water; I use a spatula.

    • Kathy O'Rourke

      oops; one more comment. I find that if I save the dough and don’t bake it all at the same time, the dough will last in the fridge for about a day but then it goes dead/flat and gets a little gray looking.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Thanks for sharing that!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice – yes you’ll like the air fryer method – this dough rocks!

    • Maria

      What temperature do cook them in a regular oven?

      • Barbara Shinn

        What temperature and how long do you bake them in your oven?

  54. Beth

    Does anybody know how many carbs these bagels are ??

  55. Debbie

    has to be greek yogurt? Can we add cheese to the top?

    • Yierou

      I topped mine with shredded parm and came out yummy!

  56. Christina

    First time trying these and will be a must make going forward.

  57. Linda

    They looks so good ,must try them

  58. Lynn Olson

    Just made these for the first time. So easy to do. I put everything bagel seasoning they are amazing!!!!! Will make again.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Yummy I love these – thanks for sharing Lynn!

  59. Nancy

    Can you use heart health bisquick in stead of flour?

  60. Denise

    Do u know the nutritional value? How many carbs?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Denise! I did find that it looks like this recipe has about 26.5 g of carbs per serving. Here is another option with only 6 net carbs per serving –> https://hip2keto.com/recipes/easy-keto-bagels/

      Hope this helps!

  61. Debbie

    Oh my!! These are fabulous. I also took some crushed walnuts and dried cranberries and roll them in it before I baked them. They were fabulous too. The everything seasoning for bagels were awesome too.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! Thanks for sharing!

  62. Leyna

    I love the new recipe! I used cinnamon and sugar and it was delicious

  63. Shanta

    Really worth trying . So simple. Will make some for Doc Uncle.

  64. AWS

    Anybody tried these with Gluten Free Flour? Curious for our GF household. Thanks!

    • Elizabeth

      I used gluten free flour and added 1/4 tsp extra xanthum gum. I used about 1/2 c extra flour. But you can tell if you need more flour or yogurt when mixing. It turned out great!

  65. xara

    Can you substitute almond flour make them keto friendly

  66. Wendy

    I’ve used a similar recipe to make pretzels. They were pretty good too!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing!

  67. Piper

    Really thought it wasnt gonna work out when I was making the dough, but it came out amazing!! Dont be fooled!

  68. Jen B.

    These turned out perfect! I used the melted butter to make the seasonings stick. I’m going to try a gluten free dairy free version and see how they turn out. I did flake salt on 2 and everything seasoning on 2.

  69. radrzr

    Worked like a charm! I guess I am not buying bagels in the store again……

  70. radrzr

    Worked like a charm! I got inventive and made one with poppy, one with sesame, one with cheese, and one covered with a seasoning blend.
    I guess the grocery store just lost my bagel business…….

  71. Vanessa De Guzman

    I have multiple modes on air fryer. Do I just use air fry or bake?

  72. Grace

    Omg! I can’t wait to try these! And I just bought the Everything But the Bagel seasoning from ALDI last week. Please keep sharing more air fryer recipes. I just bought an air fryer based on one of the deals you shared and am still figuring out what to make in it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! You’ll love it 😍 Thanks for the feedback Grace!

  73. Ella

    I just made these this morning! Wow! Because this is such a customizable recipe, I added a little salt to my dough (as a cook I like flavor!), and did the egg wash with everything bagel seasoning. I have the 6-qt air fryer so I was able to do all 4 bagels at once. They came out perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy in the inside. We did not toast them, but if you wanted a truer bagel experience, you could split and toast for even more crunch. I will definitely be making these again. <3

  74. MamaDi

    I made these and used half whole wheat flour for the dough. After making into the bagel shape and resting for about 15 minutes, I placed them in a pot of boiling water seasoned with about a tablespoon of molasses and about 2 teaspoons of baking soda. I boiled them for about 75 seconds. Remove from the boiling water with a slotted spoon. Top with bagel seasoning. I baked these in the oven at 400° for 18 minutes. They turned out more like a true bagel. Next time I will try the air fryer but since this was my first time making bagels I thought I would do it in the oven first.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow so awesome- thanks for sharing helpful tips!

  75. susan walsh

    hi tried the bagels in my ninja foodi but it doesnt go up to 300f is this a merican thing only 210c id love to make these any suggestions please thankyou as im trying healthier recipes

    • griselda

      330F is 165C according to google. hope that helps.

  76. Melinda Brenner

    Thanks for this amazing recipe! I was hankering a bagel and had self rising flour but only had flavored low fat strawberry greek yogurt on hand… it turned out GREAT! Such a nice texture inside. I seasoned with Italian sea salt garlic & parsley seasoning and the half way thru baking I added shredded pecorino romano… WOW. Sorry to the bagel shop, I will no longer being buying their banker’s dozen!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the great feedback and review! So happy that you enjoyed it!

  77. Cathy WIEWEL

    Flatter, top with a bit of pizza sauce, cheese and your favorite pizza topping. Bake or air fry. Yummy personal pizzas.

  78. Margaret

    Mine didn’t cook inside. The outside was nice an crisp but inside was very soft and doughy. Cooked them in Ninja air fryer at 330 for 10 minutes.

  79. Ricky Rad

    I’m trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong. I’ve been making these since the recipe came out on here a few months ago. They come out excellent. But I end up using almost double the flour than the recipe states. If I use the regular one cup it says, the mix is still mushy and sticky. Am I missing something?
