If you are on a weight loss program, you probably thought bagels were off-limits and normally you’d be right. But these 2 Ingredient Weight Watchers Bagels are a game changer. All of my Weight Watchers friends have been raving about these, so I had to make them and see what the fuss was about. Wow, the hype is real! These are delicious and easy to make. They are just 3 points each on the Freestyle program so you can enjoy a good sized bagel with no guilt. So what is the secret to making these bagels low in points? Read on to find out how to make them and when you are done check out our 2 Ingredient Bagels with Cinnamon Sugar Topping and 2 Ingredient Dough Pretzels.

The secret to these 2 Ingredient Weight Watchers Bagels is fat free Greek yogurt. Fat free Greek yogurt is 0 points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan and is one of the main ingredients in these bagels. The crazy thing is that you cannot taste the yogurt at all in these bagels. Give them a try and see for yourself! You won’t believe that you are able to eat these and stay on program.
One final note before I share how to make them – these are called 2 Ingredient Bagels, since the bagel is made from flour and fat free Greek yogurt. You do add some toppings like and egg wash and seasoning so technically, it might be more than two.
2 Ingredient Weight Watchers Bagels
These bagels use self rising flour which you can buy pre-made or make yourself. I make my own self rising flour and have always had wonderful results.
You can make your own self rising flour by mixing:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Sift together and use whenever a recipe calls for self rising flour. This will make 1 cup of self rising flour.
To make 4 bagels, combine 1 cup of self rising flour and 1 cup of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt in a bowl until a dough starts to form. If you just want to make 2 bagels, just use 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of yogurt. The rest of the recipe remains the same.
This dough will be pretty crumbly at this point. Turn on a lightly floured surface and brush your hands with a bit of flour.
Knead until dough forms and divide into 4 parts. I weigh my dough on this scale to make sure I have 4 equal pieces.
Roll out the dough balls to form a “rope” and pinch the ends together to make a circle.
Brush bagels with an egg wash and sprinkle with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning. This stuff is amazing! I use it on bagels, eggs, avocado toast…everything!
Bake at 350 degrees for 23 minutes and 500 degrees for 2 minutes so the tops can brown.
I like to cut these in half and spray them with a few squirts of Parkay Vegetable Oil Spray which has zero calories. You can also toast these, use them for a breakfast sandwich or freeze them for use later.
