Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bagels!

Ahh, the ongoing saga of my kitchen remodeling project..... I am in NO way complaining- I am sooooo excited about the whole thing! It's looking beautiful and....the space! Oh, the new amount of space there is! It's hard to believe it's even the same house! (Our youngest daughter was in for Easter after not being home since Christmas ....She had a hard time orienting herself-she was stunned!) However, we're by no means done.  Right now my kitchen is spanning every room as we wait for paint to dry, hinges to be attached and for doors to be hung. Floors aren't finished and the lighting has to be put in.  I keep reminding myself , "Patience is a virtue", "Good things come to those who wait", "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, PATIENCE......" . So I take a deep breath and tell myself that soon I'll see the end result of all this waiting....I'll know, in the famous words of Paul Harvey, "the rest of the story!" 

Perhaps you're waiting for something too....Take a breath and remind yourself of the rewards of patience. And in the meantime, make up some of these super-tasty bagels and share them with your friends! 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bagels

1 Cup water water
1 Tbsp/Pkg. Red Star Platinum Yeast
1/3 Cup peanut butter
2 ½ Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
¼ Cup mini chocolate chips
3 Cups unbleached, all-purpose flour 
For egg wash: 1 egg, beaten lightly with 1 Tbsp. water

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. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket with cooking spray, “smooth” dough and replace in bucket. Cover and let rise until doubled.

Remove dough from bucket and divide into 8-12 equal pieces. Form each piece into a smooth ball then using a floured finger, press a hole in the center of each piece of dough. Stretch the hole a bit to form the bagel shape. (This hole will get smaller when you water bathe it). Place the formed bagels on a greased baking sheet and let rise briefly, 15-30 minutes.  While bagels are rising, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place 2-4 bagels in the water at a time, depending on the size of your pot, allowing 1 minute per side. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and briefly drain on a paper towel. Replace bagels on baking sheet. Brush each bagel with egg wash. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Enjoy!
