Homemade Pumpkin Bagels

These light and chewy bagels have a subtle pumpkin flavor that goes great with Nutella, cream cheese, or butter and cinnamon-sugar. I also love making my own sweet cream cheese spread with vanilla or maple syrup.
I left the flavor of this recipe simple to maxmize their versatility – try them untoasted, dipped into a hearty vegetable soup! You'll love having these hot and fresh bagels right from your own kitchen!

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional)


  • Strain the pumpkin puree through a fine mesh strainer or a piece of cheesecloth for 5 minutes or until it's about the same texture as Greek yogurt.
  • In a marge mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Mix in the pumpkin puree, Greek yogurt, and pumpkin pie spice (if using) to form a sticky dough.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead 5-6 times, until smooth.
  • Divide the bagel dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece of dough into an 8-inch rope. Bring the ends of each rope together and pinch to seal.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg and water together. Brush the top of each bagel with the egg mixture.
  • Place the bagels in your air fryer basket in a single layer. Air fry at 325ºF for 14 minutes, until criso and golden brown.
