HEALTHY BAGELS | By Hubert Cormier
Strangely enough, it is often said that bagels are not healthy. However, they are a good alternative to traditional sliced bread, have less fat than croissants and are enjoyable to eat. Popular for both breakfast and lunch, bagels can be sweet, savoury, multi-grain, cheese- or cinnamon-flavoured or raisin, not to mention the “everything bagel”. Even if nothing beats the taste and texture of a bagel baked in a wood-fired oven, here is a simple, protein-rich recipe that you can easily make at home.
✔ 250 ml (1 cup) all-purpose flour
250 ml (1 cup) whole wheat flour
20 ml (4 tsp.) baking powder
7.5 ml (½ tbsp.) salt
500 ml (2 cups) plain Greek yogurt
1 beaten egg (egg wash)
Sesame seeds for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the flours, baking powder and salt. Add yogurt and mix well.
On a floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes and divide into 8 equal parts.
Form small discs and make a hole in the centre using a cookie cutter. Stretch out slightly to form a typical bagel shape.
Brush the bagels with the egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Place in the oven for 25 minutes or until the bagels are golden brown. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before eating.
