Delicious & Easy Protein Bagels With 19g Of Protein



And not so appetizing.

Most high protein baked goods (breads) fall flat... both in looks... and in taste.

My first several attempts at protein bagels totally sucked. Very underwhelming.

But I'm stubborn and I love to cook.

I finally perfected the protein bagel recipe and baking technique... and now you get to learn from my failures and bake up some amazing protein bagels.

High Protein Bagel Ingredients:

The ingredients listed below make 5 bagels:

  • Bullet point

    2 Cups Flour*

  • Bullet point

    1 Single Serving Container Greek Yogurt

  • Bullet point

    1 Tbsp Yeast

  • Bullet point

    1 Tsp Baking Powder

  • Bullet point

    3 Tbsp Water

  • Bullet point

    1 Tsp Salt

* The flour you use matters.

Splurge on a high quality flour like King Arthurs unbleached all purpose flour for the best results.

What makes these high protein bagels is the Greek yogurt.

The nutrition information is below the directions.

High Protein Bagel Baking Directions:

A stack of high protein bagels with different toppings.
A bagel sliced open dripping with warm cream cheese.

Step 1

Mix all of those ingredients together and knead for 3-5 minutes on a clean surface.

You can knead and mix up with your hands or use a standing mixer with the hook attachment.

I use my Kitchenaid... worth the (large) purchase!

Step 2

Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes.

In case you didn't know... you need to let the dough rest because this lets the flour fully hydrate and absorb the moisture in the mixture.

This absorption is what gives the dough the consistency you are used to when it's done.

Step 3

Cut the "well rested" dough into 5 even pieces.

Roll each piece into a 5-6 inch log and wrap the ends together to create your bagel.

I used a donut sheet for the perfect shape. But a handmade bagel has some character 😉.

This is also a good time to preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Step 4

You don't have to do this step, but I HIGHLY recommend it.

In a small bowl, whisk an egg.

Wipe the top and sides of each bagel to make them sticky.

Sprinkle with your favorite bagel toppings such as flaky salt, everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppyseeds, etc...

Step 5

Remember you should have preheated your oven at this point.

Bake for 18-22 minutes until the bagels are lightly golden at the top and sides.

Allow the bagels to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing and enjoying.

Pretty crazy right?

19g of protein in one bagel?

That's pretty good!

Protein Bagel Notes:

Wet, Extra Doughy Bagels?

I always get asked about using flavored yogurt.

It sounds pretty good too... a strawberry or blueberry flavored bagel. Sign me up!


Depending on the brand of yogurt you're using... yogurt can make the dough wet and flimsy.

If you want to add a flavor... use real berries (not frozen) and add them into the dough when you're kneading the dough.

If you use frozen fruit, the extra water released during thawing may end up making the dough wet as well. Be careful!

Ready For Me To Help You Master - Real - Healthy Eating?

Do I personally use this recipe?

Not really. Personally, I tend not to eat wheat based carbs in my diet.

But just because I don't... doesn't mean you should not use this recipe.

I may have a pretty strict diet... but I've been eating healthy for nearly my entire adult life. I'm used to it.

Unlike what you hear out there on the Internet... you do not need to eat a perfect diet to burn fat and lose inches from your hips... waist... shoulders... even arms.

I call this eating eating real food.

Eat real food... limit sugar and sugar responses (insulin) as much as you can.
