Light, fluffy, and rich in protein, these 3 Ingredient Greek Yogurt Bagels are a breakfast favorite. 

One of the best things about these bagels is that they’re easy to make with a few pantry staples, and they’re super versatile.

Best of all, you can experiment with your choice of toppings so they’re a different bagel flavor every time, and you can find your favorite flavors!

Easy Greek Yogurt Bagels

Similar to my other easy bread recipes like this 2 Ingredient Bread and my 2 Ingredient Bread Buns recipe, this easy no-yeast bagel recipe is a cinch to make.

Topping them with regular sesame seeds, cheese, or with everything bagel seasoning makes them even more delicious.

Ingredients And Substitutions

  • Greek Yogurt: Use unsweetened, unflavored Greek yogurt. Make sure it is at room temperature before you use it for the recipe. It’s important to note that it must be Greek yogurt because regular yogurt has too much moisture content.
  • Flour: I used all-purpose flour for this recipe. You can also use Self Rising Flour which includes the baking powder and salt already included. I use both methods so whatever you have on hand will work.
  • Baking Powder: Helps the bagels rise. NOTE: Don’t add the baking powder if you’re using self-rising flour.
  • Salt: Added for flavor. NOTE: If you use self-rising flour, no need to add the salt.
  • Egg (optional): To brush on top for a golden finish on the bagels, but it’s not necessary for the finished product.
  • Bagel seasoning (optional): For added flavor. You can buy everything but the bagel seasoning from the store, or you can easily make your own

***EAZYTIP: Ingredients like salt, pepper, seasonings and oil don’t count towards the ingredient list because most people have these basic items in the pantry.

How to Make Greek Yogurt Bagels

Prep: Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit, 190 Celcius.
Step 1: Combine all Ingredients. – In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix until you get a sticky dough. 
Step 2: Knead. – Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. 
Step 3: Portion. – Portion out the dough and shape into rounds using your palms. 
Step 4: Shape. – Make a hole in the center and stretch and shape the bagels.
Step 5: Add Toppings. – Transfer to a lined baking sheet, top with your choice of toppings and pop in the oven. 
Step 6: Bake. – Bake until golden brown and serve warm. 

Tips, Variations, and Serving

  • I know I said it was optional, but I recommend brushing the bagels with the egg wash before you sprinkle the toppings on them. Doing this will help the toppings stick to the surface, and will also lend the bagels a beautiful shine. A substitute for the egg wash can be milk or even water in a pinch.
  • You can experiment with lots of different toppings on the bagels. A bit of sea salt is normal, but Everything bagel seasoning is my all-time favorite. Also, single-ingredient toppings like poppy seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, or even dried onion or garlic flakes are delicious. 
  • While these bagels taste insanely delicious on their own, I highly recommend toasting them because, well, everything tastes better toasted in my opinion!
  • You can spread them with a bit of herbed butter, jam or jelly, or a cheese of your choice, lox (smoked salmon) and capers, or use them as a base for your sandwiches.

Storage Ideas & Suggestions

I love that this bagel recipe is a small batch recipe so there isn’t a bunch hanging around to go moldy. Your leftover Greek yogurt bagels can be refrigerated for up to 4 days and should be brought up to room temperature before toasting or serving for the best flavor.

Freeze them in an airtight container for about a month. Thaw before trying to cut.

Start your day right with these easy homemade Greek yogurt bagels! Soft, chewy, and perfect for breakfast or snacks. Serve them warm and toasted with your favorite toppings!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Seasoning (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will ensure that the bagels cook evenly and prevent them from sticking to the baking sheet.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the dry
ingredients until smooth.  Add the Greek yogurt to the dry ingredients. Stir until a sticky dough forms.

3. Place the dough on a surface sprinkled with flour and knead for about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.

4. Cut the dough into 4 equal portions Form each portion into a smooth ball. Using your thumb, make a hole in the center of each dough ball, gently stretching and shaping it into a bagel shape.

5. Place the formed bagels on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each bagel with
beaten egg, which will give them a beautiful golden brown color when baked.
Sprinkle to tops with the topping of your choice.

6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the bagels are golden brown and hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove and cool.


I recommend letting the bagels cool significantly before trying to slice them. This helps them keep their shape. Once they're cooled, you can slice and toast them if you prefer.

When shaping the bagels, make the holes a bit larger than what you think is right. These rise in the oven and the hole diameter will shrink.

Note: If you have self-rising flour on hand, you can substitute it for the flour, baking powder, and salt combination. The amounts will be the same, just substitute it and leave out the baking powder and salt called for in the recipe above.
