Recipe: Air Fryer Bagels

by Nadeen N. Risi, MS, RDN, LDN

Bagels are a staple breakfast bread but can leave you feeling hungry soon after with their low protein content. These easy, high protein, and great tasting bagels can be made in your air fryer in about 30 minutes. You can change the flavor by using different seasonings or fruits every time you make them.

Prep Time

5 minutes

Cook Time

25 minutes


4 servings


1 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt

1 egg

Cooking spray

Optional: everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, cinnamon sugar, blueberries, bananas


  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt until well combined. Add in the yogurt and mix until it looks like small crumbles.
  2. Lightly dust a work area with flour. Take the dough from the bowl and knead it on the floured surface. If you are mixing in fruit, add into the dough now. Knead until it is just sticking to your fingers, about 15 to 20 turns.
  3. Divide kneaded dough into 4 sections. Roll each section into a rope, about ¾ inch thick. Create the bagel shape by joining the two ends of one rope.
  4. In a separate small bowl, scramble the egg to use as an egg wash. Brush each bagel with egg wash and sprinkle any preferred seasonings on top.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the basket with cooking spray. Transfer 2 bagels, without overcrowding the basket, and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. No need to turn the bagels.
  6. Let them cool for 15 minutes before cutting. Store by wrapping in plastic and refrigerating for up to 3 days. When freezing, cut each bagel in half and wrap each individually. Can freeze for up to 3 months.
