Multigrain Good-for-you Bagels!!

As I was working on this recipe, I belatedly realized that two other recent blogs have been about pretzels/bagels.....Ahhh my one-track mind! I really should start a bagel/pretzel shop, as I just adore making them! So, my apologies to those who do NOT adore making them and were hoping for a recipe of a different kind. I'm already thinking about next week's blog.....I'll probably send along a sweet roll recipe, as I haven't posted one for a while. If anyone has a recipe request, I'd be happy for any suggestions that you might send my way!

I'm excited about this recipe.....It turned out beautifully and I love the whole grains in it! Our mildly-handicapped neighbor came to the door to chat with me while I was in the middle of making these this morning. We talked and laughed for a few minutes (he likes to talk for a LONG time- LOL!!) , then I explained that I was in the middle of bagel-making and that I had to go. He left on the premise that I would bring him a few bagels when they came out of the oven. So, my friends, I'm off to deliver bagels! (Along with some currant jelly I made last week!)  Love that this recipe makes PLENTY to share!

Multi-Grain Bagels
Dough Ingredients
1 ½  cups warm water
2 Tbsp honey
1 pkg/Tbsp Red Star Platinum Instant Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 ¼ cup bread flour
¾ Cup 7- grain rolled/flaked mix (I picked mine up at the local bulk food store; it contained red hard wheat, spelt, white soft wheat, oats, rye, barley, triticale (I could swear I’m seeing some flax seeds in there, too)

Optional- toppings:
1 egg
½ -1 Tbsp. each: chia seeds, poppy seeds, brown flax seeds, millet, cracked wheat….or whatever you like!)
kosher salt

Place warm water and yeast in EZ DOH bucket and stir to dissolve yeast. Let rest 1 minute. Add one cup of flour, then additional dough ingredients. EZ DOH-it for 2-3 minutes, or until dough is smooth and soft and all ingredients are incorporated. Add additional flour, if necessary, if dough is too sticky. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket with cooking spray, “smooth” dough and replace in bucket. Cover and let rise until doubled.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add two tablespoons of brown sugar to the water. Preheat  oven to 400 degrees. Punch down the dough and divide into about 14 equal-sized pieces. Shape into a bagelby rolling into a ball and then using your fingers to poke through a hole. Lay the shaped bagels on a cookie sheet covered with parchment, sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise again for about 20 minutes until the bagels are plump. Gently lift each bagel and drop into the boiling water, three or four at a time. Boil one minute on each side. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on a paper towel, then place back on parchment-covered cookie sheet. Once all the bagels have been boiled, brush them with an egg wash made of the egg and a few tablespoons of warm water, then sprinkled with your topping mix.  Bake in pre-heated oven for about 15- 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
