Hi Mary! I do not provide macros on my recipes but there are tons of free calculators on google!

I MADE THESE AND THEY ARE TASTY!! HOW CAN I PROPERLY STORE THEM SO THEY DON’T GET ROCK HARD OR STIFF?
Thanks

Hi Lindsay! so so happy to hear you liked them! I store mine in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge. and then reheat in the toaster or air fryer!

I am addicted to these bagels, I make this recipe every week. I can’t even eat “real” bagels after this. I use normal white flour and my favorite yogurt brand to use is Fage 0% because it is less “wet” than other brands like Chobani and makes the perfect dough texture.

Hi Maddy! aw yayyy, these are my favorite too! so happy to hear you’re enjoying them! I have learned that the type of yogurt that is used can change the consistency, but they all will work the same, just keep adding in a little bit of flour at a time until you reached the right workable dough consistency!

Hi Hannah,

I saw this recipe on instagram and really wanted to try it. When I made the dough, it stayed sticky for some reason and I couldn’t get it to a nice dough. I used the measurements as discriped, but it didn’t work. Do you have any idea why the dough woudn’t form?

Hi Zoe! You can add more flour in as needed. Dough will be slightly sticky, but it still should be workable. Feel free to add in flour as needed and dust your hands with flour as well when working it.
