Gluten Free Bagels

IMG_5212

Honest moment:  one of my secret life long goals is to open a little bagel shop.  Basically because I love bagels, I can’t get enough!

Honest moment #2:  Sometimes I eat up to 2 large NY style bagels in a sitting.  Serious piggy moment!  Since going gluten free, I have had a hard time finding a bagel that tastes like a real NYC bagel.  When I found this recipe from Petite Allergy Treats for gluten free bagels I could hardly wait to try them out! These bagels lasted maybe 2 days!  I had my GF girlfriends over to help me bake them and we may or may not have polished off a whole batch of them that afternoon!
