  • 3 ½ teaspoon dry yeast
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups lukewarm water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • seeds for garnish


  • Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sugar into ½ cup of lukewarm water, add dry yeast and mix everything well. Cover a bowl with a towel and set aside for 10-15 mins, yeast will “wake up” and grow in size.
  • In a large bowl mix flour, salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar.
  • When the yeast is ready, add it into a bowl with flour. Add oil and remaining water, stir to combine and knead everything with a mixer, with a dough hook, or with your hands for about 10 mins, until a smooth dough forms.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a slightly wet towel and set aside for 1 hour to rest.
  • The dough should grow 2 or even 3 times larger in size.
  • Roll the dough and cut into 12 equal pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a ball. With a finger make a small hole in the center, then stretch it with one more finger and spin around a few times.
  • Place all the dough rings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • In the meantime, bring a pot of water to boil, add 1 teaspoon sugar in it. Then preheat the oven to 420F.
  • Carefully place the bagels into a pot with boiling water, not too many, maybe 2-3 at a time. Simmer for 1 minute each side and remove with a sieve or slotted spoon.
  • Place the bagels on the baking sheet lined with paper and sprinkle with your favorite seeds.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins. Then remove, let them cool a little, but not too much. Enjoy your warm homemade bagels!


  • These homemade bagels should be eaten within 3 days. The longer that they stay out, they will harden and start to become stale.
  • Store the bagels at room temperature in a sealed paper bag, ziplock bag or a covered container.
  • Freeze bagels for up to 3 months in a freezer bag or container. Make sure to defrost at room temperature for a few hours when you're ready to eat it again. Once defrosted, just slice it and heat in the toaster.
  • Do not refrigerate your bagels as this will cause them to go stale.
