Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt preferably 1% or above
  • ¾ cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons flaxseed meal optional
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cream cheese
  • boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • oil to brush
  • milk to brush
  • bagel seasoning

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, flour, flaxseed if using, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Knead until it forms a dough.
  • Divide the dough into 5 equal pieces and roll each into a ball, then flatten. Take 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and place it in one piece of dough. Wrap the dough around it and pinch the ends together so it is one uniform ball. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  • In a medium pot, boil water and add the baking soda to it. Let the balls soak in the water for 30-60 seconds. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, mix together a splash of milk and oil and brush on the bagel bites. If you want these to be oil free, you can use egg wash or just milk (but oil will have a better result). Sprinkle everything bagel seasoning on top (you could also keep it plain, or add cinnamon sugar/whatever bagel flavors you like).
  • Bake for about 13 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
