How to make Bagels in the Air Fryer
Let’s walk through the simple steps to make these crunchy bagels right in the air fryer.
First, let’s talk about the ingredients that you will need.
Air Fryer Bagel Ingredients:
- All purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Greek yogurt, plain
Making Air Fryer Bagels
Start by combining together the flour, baking powder, salt and Greek yogurt in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until the dough begins to come together. Use clean hands to knead the dough into a ball.
Next, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and slice into 8 equal pieces (for mini bagels). If you want bigger bagels, slice into 4 pieces.
Roll each piece of dough out into a snake like shape, long and not too thin. Bring the two edge pieces together and roll or pinch together to form the bagel shape.
Brush the bagels with a little bit of olive oil or melted butter and season with your favorite bagel seasoning. We like to use the Everything But The Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe’s.
Place the bagels into the preheated air fryer basket that has been lined with parchment paper.
How long to cook bagels in an air fryer
My air fryer basket can fit 4 bagels, adjust yours a needed, if you can fit more, then definitely go for it!
Be sure not to overcrowd the bagels as they will rise and expand as they are baked.
Bake the bagels for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through and golden on the outside.
Carefully remove the hot, fresh bagels from the air fryer and allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing. I know you won’t be able to wait too long, these are so good fresh out of the air fryer!
