I’m always excited and happy to share Weight Watchers recipes. Of all the recipes on this blog, they are the recipes that I make over and over again. My Weight Watchers chili is a good example of one of these recipes!
My favorite “challenge” with Weight Watchers is coming up with recipes that use zero point foods. If you’re on the Freestyle program, you know exactly what I’m talking about. There are over 200 foods that have no points, and one of them is in this recipe (you’ll see soon!).
The recipe in the spotlight today is two ingredient bagels.
2 Ingredient Bagels
If you’re part of any Weight Watchers communities online or if you’ve gone to meetings, you might have heard whisperings about these Weight Watchers bagels. What are they? What are the two ingredients? Are they disgusting? Delicious? How do I make them?
I’m here to teach you how to make these little dough-y wheels of delight and then answer any questions you have! Because the truth is, these Weight Watchers two ingredient bagels are pretty amazing.
You can eat this Weight Watchers recipe for breakfast as bagels, form into small sandwich rounds, make a large or several individual pizza crusts, or even use the dough to make pigs in a blanket.
What do two ingredient bagels taste like?
I find that this recipe tastes a little bit like dense white bread with a hint of sourdough (thanks to the Greek yogurt). Here’s what I love about this Weight Watchers dough: it’s the perfect vehicle for other “stuff.”
Other stuff like butter, cream cheese, shredded cheese, tomato sauce, and more.
Of course those things are additional points, but these bagels are so dense, filling, and low in points that they are better than a lot of other options as a base. Having said that, I don’t mind eating them plain. I find them to be so good and a perfect substitute for other calorie and point dense breads.
SmartPoints and Freestyle
This bread can be divided into four or six servings. I’m going to be honest, I love this recipe so much that I always divide it into four. Here are the points, depending on what you choose:
Four Servings – 4 SmartPoints, 3 Freestyle Points
Six Servings – 2 SmartPoints, 2 Freestyle Points
Anything extra that you add to the two ingredient bagels beyond what I’ve specified in the recipe are extra points that you’ll need to put into your equation.
Self Rising Flour vs. Regular Flour
The recipe calls for self rising flour, but to be honest you can make your own self rising flour (and then they become three+ ingredient bagels!). Just combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to make the shelf rising flour.
I’m going to be honest though – I don’t find that these WW bagels taste as good if I don’t use self rising flour. I always use Gold Medal self rising flour, and it is the best tasting to me. I absolutely taste a difference; maybe you won’t. I’d love to know in the comments if you are like me when it comes to flour taste!
Weight Watchers Freestyle Two Ingredient Bagels
Serves Four or Six
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt (I recommend something with a thicker consistency like Fage)
- Toppings like sesame seeds, cinnamon, poppy seeds, parmesan (optional and add extra points)
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Combine the yogurt and flour in a large bowl; mix using a fork.
When the dough clumps and you feel like it’s not mixing anymore, it’s time to use your hands. Knead the dough in the bowl, continuing to mix the flour and yogurt together.
After the ingredients are completely combined, divide into either four or six balls.
Roll each ball out on a silicone mat or lightly floured surface. Form a long tube.
Bring the tube around into a circle and attach the end to form a bagel shape – place on a cookie sheet.
If you want to add any butter or oils or toppings, do it at this time (these may be additional points depending on what you choose!).
Bake your bagels for 10 – 12 minutes, checking for doneness. Let cool for several minutes before enjoying!
