The original bagel factory!
Julie & Kittee’s Bagel Factory
Our bagels are made with whole grain flours and are nutritionally dense. They average upwards of 6g of protein, and 10g of fiber per bagel. They’re also soy, refined sugar, and nut-free (one recipe contains walnuts).
Because vegan, gluten-free baking can be tricky, the bagel recipes in this e-book were written by weight, to be as precise as possible. You will need a digital scale to weigh most of the ingredients in the recipe (please read the FAQ tab for more info on suggested equipment).
The bagel recipes included in this volume: Plain, Not Pumpernickel, Cinnamon Cherry, Banana-Nut, Olive, Jalapeno-Cheese, Matcha Sesame, Peanut Butter & Chia Jam, Pizza, and Pumpkin-Fig spice. We also include information on marbling bagels and making bagel pretzels.
Thanks for your support!
Q: Can the bagels be frozen?
A: Yes. Actually, if the bagels will not be consumed right away, we recommend freezing them. They stay freshest this way!
Q: Is any special equipment required for the recipes in Bagel Factory?
A: Yes. To ensure accuracy, the recipes are by weight, so you’ll need a digital scale. You’ll also need disposable pastry bags, and we also recommend a stand or hand mixer.
Q: Do the bagels contain any gums or starch?
A: Yes, the bagel recipes contain xanthan gum and tapioca flour.
Q: What are the bagel macros?
A: Based on the nutritional analysis from My Fitness Pal, the bagels range from 290-394 calories, 2-8g fat, 6-10g protein, 9-12g fiber, and 6-16g sugar, per bagel.
Q: Are the bagels soy-free?
A: Yes, the bagels are soy-free. The recipes with cheese can be made with a soy-free brand like Daiya.
Q: Do the recipes contain yeast?
A: Yes they do.
Q: Do the recipes contain salt?
A: Yes they do. Salt is a necessary ingredient in yeasted bread recipes.
Q: Are the bagels nut-free?
A: All of the bagels are nut-free except the Banana-Nut bagels, which can be made without nuts.
Q: Do you need to have a digital scale in order to make these bagels?
A: Yes, a digital scale is imperative to the success of these recipes, they’re written using weights instead of volume. GF baking is super finicky, and weighing the ingredients is very important to ensure consistent results and success.
Q: Do I need a stand mixer for these recipes?
A: These bagels were all developed using a stand mixer, but a strong electrical hand mixer also works. Mixing by hand is not recommended.
Q: Are the flours used in these recipes easy to find?
A: Yes, you can usually find them in well-stocked natural foods or grocery stores, or order them online from Amazon. We intentionally tried to stick to products that are easy to find.
Q: Are these recipes corn-free?
A: The only corn in these recipes is the small amount of cornstarch that is in baking powder. You cannot substitute baking soda for the powder. We don’t add any extra cornmeal or cornstarch.
Q: Are there potatoes or potato starch in these recipes?
Q: Do these recipes contain sugar?
A: For flavor and to feed the yeast, we use small amounts of unrefined sweeteners such as agave, maple syrup and blackstrap molasses.
