My first attempt at homemade gluten and yeast free bagels

Today I decided to have a go at a gluten free, yeast free bagel recipe from Isabel’s naturally free from. Using her gluten free pizza dough mix made from cassava flour. IMG_8611 The mix costs £2.99 for 300g very good value I think,  available from Ocado, Asda, Amazon, Simplyfree recipe- 200g Isabel’s Pizza dough mix (Bags come in 150g so you will need to open second bag for extra 50g and store the remaining mix for next time) 2 large eggs 50ml water 1tsp sugar or 1tsp dextrose ( fructose free ) 2tbsp olive oil 2tsp gluten free Baking powder Put pizza mix in bowl add baking powder, and sugar then add eggs, oil and water mix together. Once mixed together, take dough out of bowl and place on a clean surface. Knead for a few minutes. Divide dough into equal amounts. Either roll into balls and make hole in the centre or roll into sausage shape and then make into rings. Image Have boiling water ready in saucepan, drop a few in at a time while still boiling for 1 min, no longer . Image Ensure they don’t get stuck on the bottom of the pan, Take out using a draining spoon and leave to dry for a moment. I used a clean tea towel to sit them on. Repeat with all Bagels Place on greased baking trays and put in pre heated oven 180oC , 160oC fan oven for about 20 -25mins Image until golden brown, allow to cool slightly , Then slice and a spread sugar free peanut butter like Biona Organic or Full fat cream cheese or just some good butter. Delicious! Image Very pleased with my first attempt. I was able to make 8 small bagels. Chewy and soft even better than I remembered Bagels to be. Next time I will make less but make them bigger! Happy gluten free Baking! Lots more recipes here from Isabel’s naturally free from

gluten free easy cheesy dough ball mix

Today I tried a new bread mix which is gluten and yeast free. I found the mix on the Ocado website Made by the lovely Isabel from Isabel’s naturally free from . I cannot believe I hadn’t seen it before.

The directions were very simple and clearly written on the reverse of the box.



I used melted butter instead of the vegetable oil. The mix came together easily and I then kneaded the dough until it was smooth and pliable.


Then split into little balls, I made 14 little rolls.


I had pre heated the oven and they cooked in 25 mins.


They looked and smelt amazing, I couldn’t wait to try them.


When gluten eating Mr S tried them, he commented that “they tasted like the cheesy rolls from Gaucho’s” He absolutely loved them, saying it was the best gluten free food I had made.


They had the most lovely airy texture, bouncy ! One of the best products I have found that is gluten and yeast free.


Lovely filled, I chose egg and bacon today. I urge you to try them. Definitely not just for kids!

I’m going to stock up on these.
