Homemade Blueberry Bagels

This chewy Blueberry Bagel recipe is easy to make and ready in just a few hours! Make a big batch on Sunday and enjoy them throughout the week with cream cheese, butter, or a drizzle of honey!

– 2 teaspoon Active Dry Yeast or 1 package – 1 tablespoon Sugar – 1 ½ cups Warm Water – 3 ½ cups Bread Flour – 1 teaspoon Salt – 1 cup Blueberries  – 1 teaspoon Vanilla – 1 tablespoon Honey


In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let that sit for 5 minutes to activate the yeast.

Add the flour and salt to the bowl.

Fit the stand mixer with the hook attachment. Turn on the mixer and mix for 3-4 minutes.

After 3 minutes, add the blueberries. Continue mixing on medium speed. The dough will start off shaggy, but as the dough mixes, it will turn into a smooth ball.

Lightly oil a bowl and place the dough into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place for 90 minutes to 2 hours.

If you are using frozen blueberries the dough may take up to 3 hours to rise. Just be patient!

When the dough has doubled in size, place the dough on a well-floured surface and divide the dough into 10 pieces.

Allow the bagels to rest for 30 minutes on the baking sheet.

Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the honey and allow the water to gently boil. Place 2-3 bagels in the boiling water at a time and boil each side for 45 seconds.

Bake the bagels for 20-25 minutes until golden browned.
