Number of Servings: 12


    1 3/4 cups warm water
    2 tbsp honey
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp yeast

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup all purpose flour plus more as needed (another 1.5 cups for me - and that is reflected in the nutritional info
    1/2 cup ground flax seed


Combine water, honey, yeast and salt in a bowl.
Add flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough is too difficult to stir with a spoon, turn out onto a lightly floured counter and knead, adding flour as necessary to keep the dough from sticking, until you have a tough, smooth, very elastic dough.

Put dough in a bowl, cover loosely w/plastic wrap or a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours.

Punch dough down and divide into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball, then make a hole in the centre of the ball and shape into a bagel. When all the pieces have been shaped, let rest for about 25 minutes, until the bagels are nice and puffy.

Preheat the oven to 400; put a large pot of water on to boil.
When the water boils, add 2 tbsp sugar, then begin to drop the bagels in, a few at a time, cooking on each side for 1 minute. Remove to a baking sheet (sprayed w/baking spray). Bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, until the bagels are a lovely golden brown.
