2 Ingredient Bagels- Weight Watchers Bagels

 Self rising flour and fat free Greek yogurt is all you need to make these 2 ingredient bagels. Top this popular Weight Watchers dough recipe anyway you like, and enjoy your 3 point bagels!

Weight Watchers Bagels

It's been 4 weeks since I embarked on my Weight Watchers journey. I really wasn't sure how I would do trying this program, or if I could even do it. As someone with Crohn's Disease, I've never been able to eat a large amount of fruits and veggies. For the past 28 yrs, I've been avoiding eating too much fruit, veggies and nuts. Add in an ostomy, and it's double jeopardy. There are so many times when I think I've eaten well during the day, only to be bed ridden the next day, in excruciating pain. Hence my reluctance at doing the program.

That being said, I decided to try it for 1 month free of charge thanks to an invite from my SO's mom. The first week was tough. I was placed in the blue group, which focuses a lot on fruits and veggies being 0 points. By the 5th day, I was bed ridden and in pain, so I decided to look into the other group colours available. I then decided to change to the purple group. In the purple group, certain carbs are zero points, which gives me a break from all the fruit and vegetables. I could eat potatoes, whole wheat pasta, brown rice Ramen and brown rice, without counting points.

I have to say that in the 3 weeks since switching, I've only had one day where I did not feel well, due to my fresh fruit and veg intake. An absolute win for me. The bonus is, that I've also lost 16 lbs, since beginning the program 4 weeks ago! I am amazed at how much weight I dropped by switching my eating habits, and how much better I feel. I am energized, my mood has improved, and my body no longer aches 24 hrs/day. 

Being on WW has given me the tools to eat more healthily and to be more mindful of what I am eating. They focus on whole foods, and steer you away from processed foods. As much as I am loving it, I am missing a few things- like BAGELS!

In one of the FB groups I joined, the ladies were talking about these 2 Ingredient bagels, that were only 3 points. Now I have been avoiding bagels like the plague because they are about 8 or 9 points each, and with only 16 points for my day, bagels were not worth it. So when I heard of low point bagels, I was all in. These bagels are made with 2 ingredients- self rising flour and fat free Greek yogurt.

I know you guys are thinking flour and yogurt? I was too....until I made these little beauties! The dough is so soft and supple and these bagels are only baked, rather than boiled and baked. Once baked they are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and when you toast them up, they are even better! I've enjoyed several of these bagels with cream cheese, for breakfast, or as a yummy snack.

How do I make 2 Ingredient bagels?

The recipe is very simple. It is 1 cup of self rising flour, to 1 cup of 0% Greek yogurt; that's it. Now you could flavour these bagels anyway you like. I added dehydrated onion to mine and then topped them with Everything bagel seasoning. Depending on your add-ins, these bagels are only 3 Smart Points on the WW program.

Once the dough is made and kneaded, you separate it into 8 equal pieces. Roll the dough into a ball and insert your thumb in the center of the dough. Gently pull the dough, making the hole in the center larger. Place shaped dough on a baking sheet and brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or Everything bagel seasoning and bake until dark golden brown.

What if I don't have self rising flour?

Making your own self rising flour is super simple. You would mix 2 cups of all purpose flour, with 1 Tbs baking powder and 1 tsp salt.

How do I store my 2 Ingredient Bagels?

These bagels are amazing right out of the oven. If you make a larger batch to have them on had for the week, you could store them in a zip top bag on the counter for about 24 hrs. Refrigerated bagels will stay fresh for about 3-4 days. Alternatively you can freeze them, by wrapping them separately and placing them in a zip top bag. Simply thaw the bagels before cutting and toasting.

  2. What a great idea! I also avoid bagels as the carbs are treacherous for weight gain in my 50+ body. Love these WW "bagels" as a low-point.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
