Super Simple Bagels!

These bagels are so yummy you wont believe they are really gluten-free! Not to mention, egg, dairy, and soy-free too!  Think of all the options to top them off or add in to them; blueberry, cinnamon and raisin, onion, garlic, poppy seed, sesame seed. Then make a bagel sandwich or smear some peanut butter on them; the possibilities are truly endless.

Makes 8

1-cup sorghum flour
3/4-cup millet flour
1-cup tapioca starch/flour
1/4-cup arrowroot starch
1-teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons flax
1 1/2 teaspoons egg replacer
1-tablespoon xanthan gum
1-tablespoon yeast
2 tablespoons agave (you could use honey)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-teaspoon cider vinegar
1 1/4 cup warm water
1-teaspoon granulated sugar

How to Make It:
{    Line a baking pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and sprinkle some flour on it.
{    Put the flour blend, salt, flax, egg replacer, xanthan gum, and yeast into a mixing bowl and whisk together.
{    In a separate bowl, whisk together agave, oil, vinegar, and 1 1/4 cups warm water.
{    Slowly incorporate the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Add more warm water, if necessary, to create a smooth consistency. Mixture should be thick. Beat on medium- high speed for 3 minutes.
{    To shape the bagels, use a large spoon to scoop out the batter. Drop a spoonful on to the baking pan or cookie sheet sprinkled with flour. Lightly roll dough in the flour to coat it and then shape into a ball. Flatten the ball slightly and, using your index finger, create a hole in the center large enough not to close during the rising and baking.
{    Place each bagel on the baking pan. Lightly cover bagels with a tea towel and place pan in a warm place for bagels to rise for about 20 to 30 minutes.
{    When bagels have risen, bring a skillet of water to boil. Add 1-teaspoon sugar to the water; preheat oven to 375 degrees.
{    Drop a few bagels into the boiling water. Simmer for 30 seconds, turn over and cook for another 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove bagels, drain away excess water, and put bagels back on the baking pan.
{    Once all bagels are boiled, bake them for 25 minutes in preheated oven.
{    Cool on rack and enjoy!

***Top it off: sprinkle each bagel with your topping of choice; poppy, sesame, caraway seeds, toasted onion, garlic bits, salt… right after they come out of the boiling water before they dry.  Then bake as directed.
