This dairy packed recipe was created in partnership with the ADA Mideast. As always, all thoughts & opinions expressed below are 100% my own.


Since I have been on a kick lately to eat healthier, I have made it one of my goals to incorporate more low fat Greek yogurt into my cooking & baking. Not only it is one of my favorite ways to lighten up some of my go-to recipes, but Greek yogurt also happens to be high in protein (aka, keeps me feeling fuller for longer) & packs a nutritional punch with dairy's 9 essential nutrients. (CLICK HERE to check out some of the differences between Greek yogurt & regular yogurt.)

Since I love using Greek yogurt in my baking, I decided to give the latest foodie trend a go- making soft & fluffy bagels using only two ingredients, self-rising flour & protein-packed Greek yogurt! Yes, I was a little skeptical myself at first. But after baking up a batch of these Mixed Berry Greek Yogurt Bagels, I am definitely a believer now...

Making fresh-baked bagels at home really couldn't get any simpler, folks. You just mix the Greek yogurt into the self-rising flour, knead it a little, shape them, & then pop them into the oven. I brushed them with a simple egg wash before baking them to help with the browning process a little, but you could totally skip that step if you wanted to. 

These bagels turned out perfectly chewy on the outside with a soft & fluffy center on the inside. Just slice, toast, & serve alongside with your favorite cream cheese.

Not only are these homemade berry flavored bagels perfect for that summertime breakfast or brunch spread, but they also happen to be a delicious way to celebrate the start of June Dairy Month. :) June Dairy Month is the perfect time to recognize the 2,200 dairy farms that are currently owned & operated by families throughout Ohio & West Virginia. Like Greg Gibson, a second-generation dairy farmer in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia. Or Joe Shockey who is raising 250 dairy cows with his wife & 4 kids in Ravenswood, West Virginia.

Did you know that there are more than 260,000 dairy cows being raised in Ohio & West Virginia alone?? In just one year, Ohio & West Virginia dairy farms produce about 640 million gallons of milk on average! And that milk makes it from the farm to your table within 48 hours making it a fast & fresh source of healthy protein for your family.

Mixed Berry Greek Yogurt Bagels

prep time: 15 min cook time: 25 min total time: 40 min

ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/4 cups (approx. two 5.3 oz cups) low fat mixed berry Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg

How to bake Mixed Berry Greek Yogurt Bagels

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour & Greek yogurt using a sturdy spatula until it forms a shaggy dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface & knead for about 5 minutes until the dough is smooth & elastic. 
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts, & then shape each portion into a large ball. Punch a hole in the center of each ball using your thumb. Gently pull & stretch the dough to form a bagel shape. Repeat this with the remaining dough balls. 
  4. Place the bagels onto the prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg & water. Brush the egg wash over top of each bagel. 
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes, rotating the baking sheet about halfway through until baked through & golden brown. 
  6. Serve warm with cream cheese on the side.
  7. Enjoy!
