When I developed my gfJules Nada Flour, I wanted it to be the go-to option for anyone who needed or wanted to eat grain-free and maybe even had other food allergies or dietary restrictions as well.

Nada Flour is allergen-free and is a 1:1 for regular all purpose flour in most recipes, so it is a real baking miracle for many!

Feel free to add raisins or herbs or other seasonings to the dough to change up the flavor of these bagels, or just sprinkle your favorite toppings on.

Grain Free Bagels Recipe

Yield: 4 bagels
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Grain free, allergen free bagels that bring great bread back into your life!


Bagel Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (220 grams) gfJules NADA Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature (for egg substitutes see choices here)
  • ¼ cup avocado oil or other mild cooking oil
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2-3 Tablespoons water

Boil and Toppings

  • 1 Tablespoon baking soda for the boil
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or everything seasoning (optional)
  • egg wash (optional)
  • • 1 egg
  • • 1-2 teaspoons water


    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk Nada Flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in eggs, oil, and maple syrup, then gradually add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time until a smooth dough forms. You should be able to handle the dough without it sticking, but the dough should still be moist, not crumbly.
    3. Separate the dough into 4 equal parts.
    4. Fill a deep pan with 2 quarts of water or halfway full. Bring the water to a boil, add baking soda, and then turn it slightly down but keep the water boiling.
    5. Roll each segment of dough into a ball and then shape it into a bagel. Poke your thumb or a spoon handle through the center of the dough ball to make the hole.
    6. Drop one bagel at a time into the boiling water and boil for 1 minute or until it rises to the top of the water. Remove with a slotted spoon or sieve to lay on the baking tray.
    7. To make the egg wash, combine the egg and water in a small bowl and whisk to combine. If not using egg wash, use your favorite milk instead. Brush the egg wash or milk over the bagels and sprinkle on any seasonings.
    8. Bake the bagels for 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and the bottoms are lightly browned. Cool completely before slicing or storing.
