3-Point Bagels (plus Bagel Sticks)

I have to say that I was skeptical. How could 1 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 cup self-rising flour turn into a dough that you can form into bagels, soft pretzels, even pizza crust? I had to try it, and the results were amazing! I've already used this dough for bagel sticks, pizza, and pigs in a blanket! I made my own self-rising flour using all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. It's so easy to form and work with and each portion is only 3 points! You'll be a convert, too!

3-Point Bagels
Makes 4
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (I used Fage)
1 egg (for egg wash)
Seasoning (I used Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Add the Greek yogurt. Mix until it pulls together to form a dough. Turn dough onto a floured work surface. Form into a ball. Divide into four quarter pieces. Work each piece into a rope, adding flour to your hands as needed in small amounts, and form into a bagel. Place bagels on prepared baking sheet.

Brush each bagel with egg wash and sprinkle with seasoning.

Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Increase the oven to 400°F and bake until bagels are browned on top, about 10 minutes longer. Let bagels cool about 10 minutes before eating.

Each bagel is 3 points.

Bagel Sticks
Makes 12 sticks

Make dough as stated above. Roll each quarter piece into 3 ropes and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with seasoning. Bake at 375°F until browned, about 30 minutes.
