Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Pumpkin Bagels. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
The base of this bagel is made with all purpose flour, but can substitute for whole-wheat. I have not tested this recipe with a 1:1 gluten free flour yet.
Baking powder will help to create a fluffy texture in these bagels.
Salt helps to balance out all the flavors.
Use cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to ensure you’re getting all those fall flavors in this recipe.
These bagels are made with greek yogurt which also helps to activate the baking powder to create a really lovely texture. If you are dairy free, feel free to use dairy free yogurt as an alternative.
Use Pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling.
A touch of maple syrup will add a subtle sweetness which tastes amazing with the pumpkin flavor.
Add on pumpkin seeds before baking.
How To Make
ONE: Start by mixing together the wet ingredients and set aside. Then, in a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
TWO: Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a spatula until a dough is formed. Roll the dough into a ball and cut into four equal parts. Then, roll each section into a ball and create a large hole in the center.
FOUR: Brush each bagel with an egg wash and top with pumpkin seeds. Place in the air fryer and fry at 350F for 12-15 minutes, or bake in the oven at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
FIVE: Slice into and enjoy!
Tips And Tricks
Mix together the wet ingredients separately from the dry and then add them together. This is to ensure all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
If your dough is too sticky, just add in a touch more of flour until it’s workable.
Depending on the size of your air fryer you made need to fry the bagels one at a time. The oven also works great.
How To Serve And Store
Serve these Pumpkin Bagels toasted and with a touch of cream cheese and pumpkin butter.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy up to 5 days. Reheat in the toaster or air fryer.

Frequently Asked Questions
