Honey Whole Wheat Bagels recipe

Whole wheat bagels are just as easy to make as the regular ones, but they deliver a fiber-rich punch and a lovely sweet flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 4 ½ cups whole wheat flour, divided
  • 2 packets active yeast
  • 1 gallon plus 1 ½ cups warm water, divided
  • 4 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:

1) Combine 1 ½ cups flour and yeast in a large bowl. Combine 1 ½ cups water, 3 tablespoons honey, and salt in a medium bowl; pour over flour mixture.

2) Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes on high speed.

3) Add remaining flour to mixture; stir gently to mix. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

4) Knead dough 10 minutes, until stiff and elastic. Place in a large greased bowl; cover and allow to rest 15 minutes.

5) Cut dough into 12 pieces; shape into smooth balls. Punch a hole in the middle of each with a floured finger. Pull gently to enlarge hole to about 2 inches. Transfer to a greased baking sheet; cover and allow to rise 20 minutes.

6) Preheat broiler. Bring remaining gallon water and 1 tablespoon honey to a boil in a large pot over high heat; reduce to a simmer.

7) Place bagels under broiler and cook 90 seconds on each side. Reduce oven temperature to 400°F. Transfer to simmering water in batches of 5; cook 8 minutes and remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining bagels.

8) Place drained bagels on greased baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes, until golden. Cool and serve.

These were delicious! I didn't have whole wheat, so I used half all-purpose-half hungarian stone-ground wheat. I also live at 8000ft above sea level, so I added 2 tbl of yeast and let them rise 5 extra minutes.
