Here's a healthy version that you can make at home for less than you can buy a fresh bagel at a local deli. And they are a full sized bagel, not just a smaller version of the same recipe.
1 1/2 Cup warm water (110 degrees)
2 packets or 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast

2 cups bread flour
1 1/2-2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon each poppy seed, sesame seeds, dried onion flakes
2 teaspoon garlic powder

Place dough into a bowl oiled with about 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Cover and let rise in a warm draft free place for about an hour or until doubled in size.
