For the bagels

  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups flour (we prefer bread, can use all-purpose or whole wheat - see post for details)
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup vegan cane sugar
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the water bath


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. 
  • Then, add in the water.
  • Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined.  Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  
  • Add blueberries and then fold dough over to combine, adding more flour if needed to form a solid ball (see video for visual)
  • Cut the ball into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Poke a hole through the center and stretch the hole a bit to make a center (see video for visual).
  • Place shaped bagel on a parchment lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.
  • Cover with a damp towel and let rise for 60 minutes
  • 10 minutes before timer goes off heat water in a large pot over medium high heat. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Once boiling add in sugar and blend together until sugar has dissolved.
  • Add in baking soda.
  • Drop 2-3 bagels in at a time for 1 minute. Flip and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Remove bagels and place back on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake bagels for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top, flipping halfway through.
  • Remove from oven and let cool before slicing and eating
