1 1/4 cup boiling water 3 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon salt 2 tablespoons yeast 1/4 cup lukewarm water 4 cups whole wheat flour, more if needed
Combine boiling water, honey, salt in large bowl. Cool to lukewarm.
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water, add to honey mixture when it has cooled. Stir in 2 cups flour and beat well to develop gluten. Add remaining flour, kneading well till smooth and elastic. Shape dough into balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each one. Cover with dry cloth, let sit 30 minutes.
In a large kettle of salted water, boil water, boil bagels, 4 or 5 at a time, for 7 minutes, turning once with slotted spoon. Place on ungreased sheet, bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.

This was exactly what I needed for a whole wheat bagel recipe. The flavor and texture are pleasing, and I love that it is low fat. I did add a touch more honey and some vital wheat gluten (as a security), but otherwise, I followed the directions to the letter. Of course, the very best part of this recipe is its ease--from start to finish, this took me 90 minutes!

This recipe worked out fine for me. I was looking for a whole wheat bagel recipe, and this one looked nice and easy. It says that it will make twelve, but they would have to be pretty small... I made six regular sized bagels out of it. The flavor isn't that great... but I think they will be good for sandwhiches, which is why I wanted to make them. I also rolled them into a rope and put the ends together, it seemed a lot better than just poking a whole in the middle...

Usually, you split the flour- half whole wheat and half white. These must weigh a ton.

somebody screwed up this recipe. shouldn't 1 of the salts in the list of ingredients be yeast?
