A stack of high protein, homemade bagels.

Delicious & Easy Protein Bagels With 19g Of Protein

Most high protein baked goods... what's the best way way describe them...aren't good.

I've had plenty of flops trying to turn a delicious and beloved baked good into something healthy.

The problem?

A lot of the time you can tell it's healthy. It just doesn't compare to the real deal.

For breads, the major issues when healthifying it, is ending up with a very dense, very dry, and very bland product that looks good but doesn't quite taste good.

And that's how it was with protein bagels too.

The first time I tried the Greek yogurt and flour technique I found on Pinterest left me underwhelmed.

It barely rose. It was small. And it felt like a rock in my stomach.

But I refused to give up. I saw potential in the protein bagel.

So after multiple attempts, each one yielding a better bagel than before...

I perfected the recipe and technique.

And that's what I am sharing with you!

High Protein Bagel Recipe


  • 2 Cups Flour (I like King Arthur)
  • 1 Single Serving Container Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 Tsp Salt


  • 1 Tsp instant yeast + 1 Tbsp water


  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Use a fork or spoon to start mixing, but use your hands to mix and knead.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured counter for 1-3 minutes, until dough is well mixed and smooth. Should feel like pizza dough.
  • Allow it to rest for 10 minutes. This isn't necessary but does help it rise.
  • Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each into a log and combine ends to create a bagel shape.
  • Either use a donut baking mold or bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 18-22 minutes. Until lightly golden on top and edges.
  • Allow bagels to cool before digging it. These guys are HOT and STEAMY!

But wait...

There's more!

Apple Pie Filling

In the video, I'm also sharing a super simple spiced apple filling to make your bagels turn into pure fall bliss.

It takes just 5 minutes and a small skillet.

  • 1 Cup apple slices
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (or butter)
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp All Spice
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp Cashew Butter (optional)

So many have already tried the recipe and given it 2 thumbs up, I'd love to hear what you think of them too!
