When I was on Weight Watchers, I attended meetings regularly. It is the one thing I miss about the program having a group of people to sit with for 30 minutes, share challenges and, of course, recipes. This Weight Watchers 2-Ingredient Dough for Bagels came up often in our meetings. You may have heard of the famous Greek yogurt and self-rising flour bagels, here’s your chance to try it.
How Weight Watcher 2-Ingredient Dough Came About
For those following the WW program, you have a specific number of points to work with each day and some weekly points to play with each week. It is a mission for those on the program to use up as few points as possible.
With Greek yogurt appearing on the zero point list, this dough recipe made its way back to mainstream recipe sites. That said, this is not a low carb recipe. The result is a dough, and what makes it so great is a 1-2 point bagel made with little effort.
Easy to Make Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Bagels
You will need two things to make the dough for these bagels, and then when baking, you’ll add seasoning and an egg wash.
- 2 Cups Self Rising Flour
- 2 Cups Zero Fat Greek Yogurt
- 1 Egg (to wash over bagels before baking) (optional)
- Seasonings like sesame seeds or everything but the bagel seasoning (optional)
How to Make Self Rising Flour
If you don’t have any self-rising flour on hand, you can easily create your own. Just mix the following well in a canister or large bowl.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
Some Tips for Making 2-Ingredient Bagels
When I started making these bagels, the instruction was to create long rolls of dough and form a circle by squishing the two ends. I found that sometimes the bagel came apart during baking.
I recommend rolling the dough and cutting it into biscuit size pucks. You can then create the hole with your thumb or finger to shape the bagel.
Season the 2-Ingredient Bagels Your Way
You can make plain bagels by just adding an egg wash on top before baking or sprinkle your favourite toppings. I like sesame seeds or Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning.
Use your imagination with these bagels. You can skip the egg wash and add cinnamon and sugar substitute to the dough or tops of the bagel.
Other things you can make with Weight Watchers 2 ingredient dough
Weight Watchers 2-ingredient Dough Cinnamon Rolls
I have also made Cinnamon Rolls with the 2-ingredient dough. Just roll out the dough into long strips. Sprinkle with Brown Sugar or Brown Sugar substitute, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Roll it up into a log and cut the rolls.
I like to make these rolls very small and then place the mini rolls into a ramekin for baking. When making cinnamon rolls, it is essential to keep the rolls together, so they don’t separate when baking.
