If you love bagels, but hate the work that it takes to make them, then prepare to have your mind absolutely blown. The Viral TikTok 2-Ingredient Air Fryer Bagel Bites are soft, pillowy, bite-sized bagels that are not only so simple and easy to whip up on a whim, but also happen to be gluten-free. Can you believe it?!
Friends, let’s get one thing out of the way: I eat both gluten-free and gluten-filled foods. Why? Because I truly believe that life is about variety! Unless you have a gluten allergy, or are otherwise gluten-sensitive eating gluten-free isn’t always necessary. But, it can be healthier and gentler on our guts, which is why I often opt to eat gluten-free most days of the week!
But even with that said, mastering the art of gluten-free baking and/or cooking can be rather difficult. It’s why my famous Best Ever Paleo Everything Bagels were a labor of love to develop, and are still one of my more complex recipes to make. And while I am adamant that they are absolutely worth the time and energy to make them, it’s not exactly a recipe that you can whip up on a whim. Luckily, these bagel bites are here for you.
These bites, which I discovered on TikTok, thanks to @lilsipper and @bearinger, use only TWO ingredients, and are naturally gluten-free. Plus, they can easily be made vegan, and turn out just as good. Truly, there are very few times that I will say a recipe is perfect, but this one is pretty dang close.
As mentioned above, you truly only need two ingredients to bring these bagels to life!
Making these bagel bites couldn’t be any easier! The first step is to decide whether you want to make them in an air fryer or an oven. Both turn out equally as well, though an air fryer is quicker! If using an air fryer, move onto the next step. But if using an oven, preheat your oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, set aside.
Next, in a large bowl, mix together your gluten-free flour and yogurt until a dough forms. It will be on the stickier side, but that is okay!
Grease your hands using a little bit of oil, so that the dough doesn’t stick to them, then use a spoon to scoop out a small spoonful of dough. Roll it in your hands until it forms a ball, then coat it in the everything but the bagel seasoning, if desired. Repeat until all of the dough has been rolled into balls!
Finally, place your bagel bites into your air fryer basket, or line them up on your baking sheet. If using an air fryer, cook them at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. if using the oven, bake them for 16-18 minutes.
Once done, let cool, and enjoy! And for the best bagel experience, I recommend breaking them in half and slathering them in cream cheese. Yum!
