Chicken wings. Potato chips. Sweet potato fries. Onion rings. Roasted vegetables.
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 a lot of 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.
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. 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.
The end result was BETTER than I expected. Delicious mini bagels without any boiling or baking or yeast! Soft and fluffy on the inside, crispy and perfectly seasoned on the outside.
The SoDelicious Unsweetened Plain Yogurt is what made these bagels turn out as perfectly as they did. It kept them moist, soft, and fluffy without any added dairy, eggs, or oil.
I always have SoDelicious yogurt on hand, so it isn’t really a surprise that it ended up in this recipe. SoDelicious yogurt actually helped me switch from regular yogurt to dairy-free. I never thought I’d be able to give up regular yogurt (even though it didn’t make me feel very good) because I had such a hard time finding a vegan/dairy-free variety that I liked. SoDelicious is THAT variety. It’s so smooth and creamy, plus it actually has that slight ‘tang’ that I love about plain yogurt. It blended in PERFECTLY in this bagel recipe and I can’t imagine using any other yogurt to make these.
Vegan Everything Air-Fryer Mini Bagels
Vegan Everything Air Fryer Mini Bagels
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 10 mins
- Total Time: 20 mins
- Yield: 5 mini bagels 1x
- Category: Breakfast Foods
1 single serve container of SoDelicious plain yogurt
1 cup gluten-free oat flour (can sub regular flour if you want!)
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp sea salt
Unsweetened almond milk
Dried onion flakes
Dried garlic flakes
Trader Joes Everything But the Bagel seasoning
Mix together all ingredients. Sprinkle flour all over your hands and divide dough into 5 equal pieces. (you will need to flour your hands between each bagel as the dough is sticky) Roll each piece into a long log shape and close ends to make a circle (bagel shape).
Lightly brush the bagel tops with almond milk. Sprinkle top with onion flakes, garlic flakes, and Everything Bagel seasoning. Cut a piece of parchment paper into a circle and put it in your air-fryer. Place bagels (2-3 at a time depending on the size of your air fryer) on top of parchment paper.
Cook at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool and slice! Spread with vegan cream cheese!
After making vegan AND gluten-free bagels in the Air Fryer, I feel like the possibilities are ENDLESS. What’s next vegan donuts? Soft pretzels? I can’t wait to keep experimenting.

Is this something I MIGHT be able to make in a regular or toaster oven? I love the idea but have no air fryer
I think it’s definitely worth a try! Maybe try at the same temp and for the same amount of time in the oven? And just keep a close eye on them! Let me know if it works for you. 🙂

These are some delicious bagels. I was also not aware that they can be made in an air fryer. I also loved the way you have done the topping. Thanks for sharing. I will try this in my kitchen.
Thank you so much! Enjoy!

I make these little bagels but use yogurt . I would like to switch to a vegan product but can’t find a low fat coconut? Do you think they make it?
Hi Judee! I am not quite sure what you’re asking here. These bagels are vegan and made with coconut yogurt.
What would be the best substitute for oat flour? I am allergic to oats but love everything else about this recipe.
I think you could try white whole wheat flour! 🙂

I’d love to try these but I am grain free. Might this recipe work with either almond flour or perhaps sunflower seed flour?
I don’t think it would work with grain-free flours! I’m sorry!
Do you think that coconut cream would work as a substitute for the dairy free yogurt? Thanks!!
Hi Katie!! I don’t think it would. Feel free to try it though and report back. 🙂
Would it be possible to omit the pumpkin?
Hi Thea! I can’t guarantee results but you could definitely try it and let me know how it goes. 🙂
Hi! Do you think I could sub oat flour for equal parts (or less?) whole wheat? Thanks!
Yes that should work….they may be a bit more dense/gummy. But equal parts should work! 🙂
I ended up doubling the amount of oat flour trying to make these not sticky enough to roll into balls and even that didn’t work. Tried to wet my hands and even that was a mess. After about an hour of effort I just threw the whole thing away
Hi! No one else has had this experience with this recipe. It’s actually one of my most popular recipes and has been tested by/featured in numerous publications. If it is not followed exactly, I cannot vouch for results.
I love bagels. – we eat them a lot. Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party – hope to see you there this Sunday. Have a fantastic weekend.
These were actually so delicious to eat! I made the 1 serving of 5 but wish I made more because I just scarfed down 2 with cream cheese and they were DELICIOUS!
Will be making these all the time thank you!!
I am so happy you loved them!! 🙂
I’ve done something wrong I think. I only had gluten free coconut flour on hand. From what I can tell, a single serve so delicious yogurt is 5.3 ounces (I buy the 24 oz tubs), but that wasn’t nearly enough wet to overcome the dry. I added a little more yogurt, but it didn’t seem to help. I finally just patted them down into thin biscuit shapes and cooked them in the air fryer. They were terrible! Any thoughts?
Can’t use coconut flour. As the recipe states, you need oat flour OR you can use regular wheat/white flour. Coconut flour need 2-3x more liquid when you’re baking with it. Typically a recipe will provide substitutions where possible…in no way would coconut flour EVER work with this recipe. They were terrible because the recipe was not followed.
That makes sense! I knew I was doing something wrong. I’m new to gluten free, so I need to learn the particulars of the different types of flours. Thanks for the heads up!
You’re welcome! I have a lot of recipes that use coconut flour that you could make…but for these GF oat flour is a necessity! 🙂
Started over with GF all purpose flour. Amazing! And quite frankly better than my local bagel shop’s GF bagel. And cheaper! Lol. I will check out your other recipes! Thanks again!
So happy you gave this another try, Ken!! 🙂
Can you make extras and freeze them?
I made these using a single serve of Fage 0% yogurt. The dough was dry and not sticky. They did not rise at all. Was it because I didn’t use the SoDelicious yogurt. The taste was great and they are super easy so hoping that was my mistake using the wrong yogurt ?
The type of yogurt could definitely be the issue! I’ve only made these according to my original recipe so I can’t say that any deviations away from that would work. I am glad you liked the flavor though!
What brand of flour did you use? And do you think these are better made gluten free or with regular flour? TIA
