These strawberry bagels are off da chain! If you have followed along, awhile back I posted a recipe for bagels from the cookbook Without Grain by Hailey Barisa Ryczek. If you are new and the strawberry bagel recipe caught your eye, WELCOME!! I’ve taken Hailey’s recipe and added a simple ingredient to get amazing fruit flavored bagels. This simple ingredient is freeze-dried fruit. I have done it with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Each one has been a success (never done the fruit flavors together, always individualized).
These strawberry bagels are amazing alone, topped with butter or cream cheese. My husband and I have found they even make great breakfast sandwiches too! The fruit flavor adds a bit of sweetness to the bagel.
One silly thing, and yes I’ve done it too many times. I often get rushed and open up the bag of freeze-dried fruit, throw it in the blender, turn the switch on and then remember it has a ‘fresh’ packet in it. Needless to say, that powder quickly finds it way to the trash can. Make sure you remember to remove the packet prior to creating powder. And if you don’t, know you are not alone…been there, done that!
