I love a good bagel, but to go to a shop and order one is a pricey item. Learn how to make blueberry bagels so anytime you get a craving whip these up.

This Blueberry Bagel Recipe Is…

  • Made with 3 Ingredients
  • Quick Mix Bagel Batter
  • Breakfast Idea
  • Freezer Friendly
  • Easy to Make

Ingredients For Blueberry Bagels

Flour, yogurt, and blueberries on a white countertop.
  • Self Rising Flour – Make sure it is self rising not all purpose flour. Or else the bagels will not rise.
  • Blueberries – Fresh or frozen work. If you use frozen they will turn the bagels purple a bit, as the juice colors the batter.
  • Yogurt – Plain yogurt is what you will need. I used Greek for added protein.

How to Make Blueberry Bagels (step-by-step)

The complete list of ingredients, quantities, and instructions can be found in the printable recipe card below.

Step One: Preheat the oven as directed, and then grab your hand mixer or stand mixer.

Step Two: Add your flour, and yogurt into the mixer and knead for 6 minutes. You want it to form a cohesive ball. (Photo 1)

Step Three: Next, add any extra flour as needed or yogurt. Once the dough is ready place on a flour dusted counter.

Step Four: Next, divide dough into 6 parts, add 10 blueberries to each ball and work the dough and then shape into a circle with the center cut out, like a bagel. (Photos 2, 3 & 4)

Step Five: Place bagels on cookie sheet and bake as directed. You can brush with egg whites before cooking if you want a more golden brown color. (Photos 5 & 6)

Storing

These bagels are best to be stored in the fridge, as I find with the berries they will last longer before they spoil. Just place in a sealed bag or container for 3-5 days.

Then you can slice and toast your bagels, or eat cold straight from the fridge.

Can You Freeze Bagels

Yes, you can freeze these bagels if you want. Just let them fully cool and then place them in an airtight container or bag. Freeze for 2-3 months. Then thaw in the fridge overnight or thaw on the counter for about 30 minutes to an hour.

Topping Ideas for Blueberry Bagels

Here are a handful of ideas on how to top these homemade bagels. Feel free to dress up your bagels as you would like. Or try out one of these options here below.

  • Cream Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Jam
  • Hazelnut Spread or Peanut butter
  • Fresh fruit and cream cheese
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly

Tips For Success

  • Make sure to do even sized pieces of dough, so that you ensure the bagels cook up the same.
  • Don’t overwork the dough or it can become very chewy and dense.
  • You can easily swap out the blueberries with any other fruit, or top with herbs or spices to change the flavor of the bagels.
  • The egg whites will give the bagels a rich brown color on top, otherwise the bagels can be pale in color.

FAQs

What if I don’t have self rising flour?

If you don’t have self rising flour here is what you can do. For each cup of all purpose flour add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. This can then be used as a self rising flour.

Does this recipe double?

Feel free to double this bagel recipe if you want to make extra bagels. Just mix it all up and batch cook your bagels if you don’t have room for them all at once.

What can I do with leftover bagels?

I love to freeze bagels until I want to eat them. But if you want to use up some of your bagels that you haven’t eaten here are a few ideas. You could make French toast with them, or even a bread pudding. Both would be so delicious to whip up.

3 ingredient blueberry bagels are so easy to make and will curb your carb cravings. Chewy outside with a tender bagel center, loaded with blueberries in each bite.

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups (250 g) Self-Rising Flour plus additional for kneading
  • 1 cup (200 g) Greek Yogurt
  • ½ cup (74 g) Blueberries fresh
  • 1 Egg White optional see note below

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475F
  • Set up your electric mixer with a kneading/paddle attachment, if you have one.
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, combine the self-raising flour and yogurt and knead for 6 minutes until a ball forms. Add additional self-raising flour as needed. (The moisture of your yogurt may affect the exact quantities.)
  • If you don’t have an electric mixer, you will need to knead the dough by hand for the 6 minutes.
  • Once the dough forms a cohesive, elastic ball of dough, remove it from the bowl and place on a work space dusted with additional flour.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal portions, knead 10ish blueberries into each bagel portion.
  • Form each portion of dough into a bagel. Make them wider with a bigger hole than a normal bagel as they will get smaller with baking.
  • Place the formed bagels onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Brush the bagels with the egg white, if desired.
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes, until tops of bagels are golden brown.

Notes

Egg white is optional to give the bagels a golden brown crunchy exterior
