You name it, I have tried making it in the Air Fryer. At first, when I bought my Air Fryer, I wasn’t sure how often I’d use it. In fact, I sort of regretted buying it because I figured I didn’t need one more ‘gadget’ hanging around my apartment. But once I broke it out for the first time and realized how fast, efficient, and easy it is to use, I knew I had made the right decision.
Air Fryers are ALL the rage right now. Definitely one of the “food fads” of the year. But regardless of whether or not they remain popular or not on the foodie scene, I know I’ll be using mine for a long time to come. Partly because I LOVE the way it cooks many staple foods that I usually use the oven for; and partly because I’ve discovered some pretty cool uses for it that you won’t find in any Air Fryer manual or recipe book.
Make Mini Bagels in the Air Fryer
Yup, that’s right. After seeing a few people attempt to make bagels in their Air Fryers on social media, I thought it was time to try my hand at the experiment! Everyone I saw was going the sweet route, so obviously, I had to be different and go SAVORY. It makes sense since my favorite kind of bagel is Everything anyways.
The Air Fryer bagel recipes I saw on social media all required some sort of dairy ingredients or eggs to make them. But I wondered if I could make a vegan recipe that would work just as well!
Equipped with a few key ingredients, I got to mixing and shaping.
Vegan Everything Air Fryer Mini Bagels
Delicious mini bagels without any boiling or baking, or yeast! Soft and fluffy inside, crispy and perfectly seasoned on the outside.
The unsweetened vegan yogurt made these bagels turn out as perfectly as they did. It kept them moist, soft, and fluffy without any added dairy, eggs, or oil. Alternatively, you can also use regular plain Greek yogurt if you want!
How to Make Vegan Everything Air Fryer Mini Bagels
These Everything mini bagels are made by mixing flour, seasonings, yogurt, and baking powder. When your dough is formed, you split it into three equal portions and roll it into thin long logs that can be formed into circles (bagel shape!). Then, wet the top with almond milk and sprinkle on the seasonings. You could make these sweet by adding cinnamon and sweetener or leave them plain without any seasonings.
After forming the bagels, cook them in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. The result is perfectly toasted mini bagels with a soft, fluffy interior!
