1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl, mix flour with baking powder, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins.
3. Add yogurt and mix well with a spoon.
4. Use your hands to knead dough. The dough will be sticky, just add flour to your hands.
5. Form the dough in a ball and tear into 8 pieces.
6. Roll on a floured surface until your dough looks like a rope. Form a circle and pinch the ends shut. Repeat with remaining dough.
7. Bake for 25 minutes, then broil on low for 2 minutes until the top is browned.
I have seen versions of the recipe on the internet and was so intrigued to give it a try. Some recipes call for self-rising flour. You can make your own by just adding baking powder and salt to your flour, as I did in this recipe. Most recipes I saw called for white flour – I tried whole wheat and liked the result so much better! If you want to make a ‘plain’ version, just take out the cinnamon, sugar and raisins. Get creative by adding your own spices on top, and trying different shapes like a pretzel or ‘breadstick’; you could also use this dough as a pizza crust! These bagels are great as is or you can toast them. They also freeze well - hope you enjoy!
