Omigosh, I made Whole Grain Bagels!!

They’re cooling as I type. Fingers crossed they’re as good as they look!

UPDATE: they’re delish! 🤣

Whole Grain Bagels

• 250g whole grain flour

• 250g all purpose flour

• 1 tbsp + 2 tsp sugar

• 1 tbsp active dry yeast

• 1.5 tsp salt

• 1.25 cup water

• Optional topping spices of your choosing

Note: I used a kitchenaid stand mixer but this recipe is totally doable by hand

1. Combine dry ingredients and whisk gently to combine

2. Attach dough hood, turn stand mixer on to low speed & slowly add water

3. Continue on low speed until completely incorporated, then set timer and continue to let the dough hook kneed the dough for 10 minutes

4. Turn dough into glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for about an hour until at least double in size

5. Set a large pot of water on the stove to boil, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside

6. While waiting for the water to boil, using a pastry scraper divide dough into 8 pieces for large bagels, 10 for medium or 12 for small. Using your hands form into balls, flatten slightly, then using the handle of a silicone spatula or spoon poke a hole in the center of each bagel from one side, then repeat on the other side

7. Gently dd bagels to boiling water a few at a time, boil 2 minutes, turn and boil 2 minutes more. Using tongs or slotted spoon remove bagels from water & place on parchment lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with herbs and spice of your choosing.

8. Bake @425-degrees for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 375 and continue baking for another 10 minutes or until nicely browned; Cool on rack 10-15 minutes before enjoying

Gluten-free Flatbread Bruschetta

Italy meets Mexico? Why the heck not!? 😀

Gluten-free flatbread

  • 1 cup brown rice flour + more for forming flatbreads
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp potato flour*
  • Approximately 3/4 cup water*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Mix dry ingredients by hand or in food processor fitted with dough blade
  2. Gradually add water & mix well until soft dough forms. If dough is dry & crumbly add a bit more water; if too wet to handle add a bit more flour
  3. Divide dough into 4 large or 6 medium or 8 small pieces; place one of the pieces onto floured board, flatten with with fingertips, turning dough over as needed to keep it from sticking; repeat with remaining pieces
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat, cook flatbreads one at a time for approximately 1 minute until it just begins to brown; flip to cook other side. Over-cooking will net dry & crunchy results
  5. Cover cooked flatbread with kitchen towel to keep them soft while you finish cooking the batch. Best served immediately

* Sub 1 cup potato purée for the potato flour and water
