What Is 2 Ingredient Dough?
If you haven’t tried it yet, 2-ingredient dough is a bread recipe made with equal parts self-rising flour and Greek yogurt.
The bagels, breadsticks, and more that you make from this recipe have a tangy flavor similar to sourdough from Greek yogurt. They are soft on the inside with a chewy crust on the outside that is perfect for any bread lover.
All the recipes with this dough are no-yeast and no-knead, which makes them extra-easy.
This recipe has been around for quite some time, but because plain, non-fat Greek yogurt is now zero points for most WW members, this recipe has really taken off.

Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
I love bagels, but can I really eat these and lose weight?
Yes, you can! Most bagels are 300-400+ calories and many times don’t feel worth the calories or points. These bagels are approximately 150 calories each or 3 WW points.
Why is my yogurt dough too sticky?
One of the top trouble-shooting questions we receive is how to fix sticky dough. This dough can be quite sticky. That’s why we recommend that you start with using ALL the flour and only HALF of the yogurt. Slowly add more of the yogurt until you have a pliable dough ball that you can work with.
Also, be sure to use the thickest parts of your Greek yogurt and strain off any extra liquid.
If you’ve already started making your dough and it’s too sticky to work with, add extra flour. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to adjust the points accordingly.
How long do these bagels last and how should I store them?
These bagels are best when eaten within a day or two of baking them, but they freeze beautifully. To freeze, place the bagels on a sheet pan in a single layer so they don’t stick together. Place in the freezer to flash freeze.
When frozen, place the bagels into a gallon storage bag and back into the freezer. Frozen bagels can be thawed on the countertop for a few hours or in the microwave for 30 seconds. Once they are soft, they are especially delicious toasted in the toaster or air fryer.
You can even freeze the raw dough. Make the dough and divide into balls. Freeze the dough balls. Thaw dough overnight, shape into bagels, and bake as directed.
What are the best ways to top these bagels?
Some of our favorite ways to top and serve these:
- As a delicious breakfast sandwich with an egg and spinach. (0 additional points)
- Make a ham or turkey sandwich and top with Dijon or honey mustard (0-3 points extra for a the ham or turkey)
- Spray with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray (0 points)
- Spread with Brummel and Brown spread made with yogurt (1 T is 2 points).
- Spread with real butter (1 T is 5 points).
- Spread with reduced-calorie margarine (1T is 3 points).

Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Bacon and Cheddar Bagel Recipe with Step-by-Step Instructions & Photos
Step 1 – Gather the ingredients
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Get ingredients measured and ready to assemble the dough.
Step 2 – Mix the Greek yogurt with the self-rising flour
Mix flour and half the yogurt to form a soft dough. Gradually add more of the yogurt until you have a pliable, slightly sticky dough.
Step 3 – Add the rest of the ingredients and mix
Knead by hand for 3-4 minutes or use an electric stand mixer with a dough hook attachment.
Step 4 – Form dough
Dust your workspace with additional flour and turn the ball of dough onto the workspace. Divide dough into 6 equal portions and form each into a ball.
Step 5 – Form into bagels
Form each ball into a bagel shape. Make the hole in the center wider than you think necessary to allow rising.
Step 6 – Add toppings and bake
Sprinkle the top of each bagel with the additional cheese and bacon, pressing in gently.
Place bagels onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Bake in 350 oven for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
You can serve these warm right out of the oven, or refrigerate to have for the week.
I recommend toasting bagels to get that crusty, chewy texture.
Imagine how delicious these would be at your next brunch or breakfast gathering. These are a perfect healthy bagel option to bring to your next potluck, too.
