This Gluten-Free Cheese and Jalapeño Bagel recipe is fun to make and the bagel is particularly good when toasted for breakfast with eggs or for making bagel sandwiches with avocado egg salad or salmon spread.

Jalapeño bagels without donut pans – recipe details.

The bagel dough takes only minutes to prepare. First, mix dry ingredients with yogurt and sour cream and form small balls. Now comes the fun part.

Place the dough balls on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Using your finger, poke a hole in the middle of each ball, then spread out the hole to about 1-inch in diameter.

Smooth the tops with wet hands. That’s it. Super simple. No need for donut pans. But if you have a donut pan, use it, it will save you time, and you will have a perfectly shaped gluten-free cheese and Jalapeño bagel.

Add healthy sesame seeds

To make the bagels extra special I added sesame seeds not only for the texture and flavour but for their many health benefits.

Sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper and manganese, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber. Jalapeño is another mildly spicy green pepper not to be shy from.

Some studies suggest that jalapeño peppers have been known to aid in weight loss and fight cancer cells and tumors as per Dr. Axe

I hope you enjoy these gluten-free cheese and jalapeño bagels, but be warned; they’ll disappear before you know it. I always double the recipe because they freeze well!

I used the flour you recommended and they turned out delicious. They did take a little longer to bake.


I am very sorry to hear that. Did you use the flour I recommended? This GF flour blend is rice based and works beautifully in this recipe. Sometimes other blends don’t work the same. Again I am sorry they did not turn out for you.


These bagels took forever the cook and after an hour they were dried out and still wet in the middle. Very disappointing
