Calling all of my food allergy conscious mamas! I was looking for an at-home bagels recipe and stumbled upon an awesome site: Only Gluten Free Recipes. Not only did the site have a Gluten-Free Cheese & Jalapeño Bagel recipe (even better than what I was looking for), it also had a ton of other recipes for kids, gluten-free eaters, dairy and egg free eaters, and paleo diet followers, as well as a ton of vegetarian options. The site contains recipes that originate from across the globe, so whether you’re craving Greek or Thai, or anything between, you can find the right recipe.
Regular bagels involve resting, followed by baking and then boiling. These bagels are so much faster! All you have to do is mix, form, and pop them in the oven. If jalapeños are too much for you or your babes to handle, just skip adding them. They are still super delicious! I went ahead and made a batch with and a batch without and enjoyed them both ways. You can always freeze the bagels and save them for later too! We found an awesome everything bagel seasoning mix at Trader Joe’s, so we used that instead of seperate salt and sesame seeds. We are officially obsessed with making bagels at home!
