Two Ingredient BagelsPosted by in General
I’ve been hearing a lot lately about two-ingredient dough which is a popular bread hack for Weight Watchers. It’s substituted for bagels, pizza dough and more. Most recipes say a serving is 3 Weight Watchers points. Which if you consider that a regular bagel is going to set you back at least 11 points, is significant.
I decided to give it a try. The recipe is very simple. For 4 servings, mix 1 cup self-rising flour with 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt. That’s it! Because we are gluten-free though, I had to substitute, so I made my own GF self-rising flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt mixed with the 1 cup gluten free flour.
You mix it all up and separate it into 4 balls. I decided to make bagels so I rolled each ball into a log then formed it into a donut shape. I brushed them with egg wash and then sprinkled with Everything Bagel seasoning.
Bake at 350 for 23 minutes then take it out and turn the heat up to 500 then bake it at that temp for 3 more minutes.
They were amazing! I cut them in half, toasted them lightly and then I put cream cheese, chives, and smoked salmon on top. I could not tell it was not a regular bagel.
The Weight Watchers app told me this comes out to 4 points, which I think is because gluten free flour has slightly more calories than regular flour.
