Gluten-Free Vegan Everything Bagels (with Arrowroot)

Recipe from Fork and Beans

Ingredients

Wet ingredients

  • ¾ c. warm water
  • 1½ tsp. dry active yeast
  • ½ tsp. granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. ground chia seeds (I used white but you can easily sub the black ones)
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Dry ingredients

  • ⅔ c. oat flour
  • ⅔ c. millet flour
  • ⅓ c. arrowroot powder
  • ⅓ c. tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp. baking power
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt

For the "Everything" mix (really it's whatever you want but here is what I did)

  • 2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. dried onion
  • 1 Tbsp. oats
  • 1 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1 tsp. cornmeal

Instructions

  1. To create the yeast mixture: Add the yeast and ½ tsp. of sugar (yeast food) to the warm water and allow to foam up (takes 10 minutes). Add the chia seed, oil, and vinegar and allow 5 minutes for the chia to thicken.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the yeast mixture into the flour mix and stir for 2 minutes with a wooden spoon until well-combined.
  3. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and lightly dust with cornmeal.
  4. Divide into 4-5 balls (depending on what size you want your bagels) and smooth with your hands. Form each ball into bagel form and creating a hole in the middle by using your thumb. Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Fill a pot with 4 c. water and bring to a boil. Once rapidly boiling, add 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar and 1 tsp. baking soda.
  7. Keep the small bowl nearby with the "everything" mixture inside.
  8. Gently toss 1 bagel into the boiling water and boil on each side for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, scoop out of the water.
  9. Place back onto the parchment paper and quickly sprinkle the "everything" topping mixture. Do this one at a time.
  10. Bake for 20-23 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack. When ready to eat, slice in half and toast.
