Cinnamon Raisin Bagels With Maple Cashew Cream Cheese [Vegan]

This Recipe is :





For the Bagels:

  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 non-dairy milk, plus 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (vegan buttermilk)
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup rye flour
  • 3/4 cup barley flour
  • 1/4 cup psyllium husks
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/4 cup baking soda

For the Cream Cheese:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 3 hours
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


To Make the Bagels:

  1. Combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast in a small bowl. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, until foamy.
  2. In another bowl, mix the milk and apple cider vinegar and let it rest.
  3. Combine the flours, psyllium husks, and spices in a large bowl.
  4. Using a stand mixer with the hook attachment, add the coconut oil, raisins, yeast mixture, and buttermilk to the flour mixture.
  5. On medium speed, knead for 12-15 minutes, until you get a smooth, not sticky and pliable dough. If the dough is too wet/sticky, add more whole wheat flour, one tablespoon at a time.
  6. Remove the bowl from the mixer and cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel. Let it rise in a warm place for 1 – 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Punch the dough down and divide in 6 equal parts.
  8. Using your hands, shape each part into a ball, and then carefully make a hole (about 1-inch wide) in the middle with your fingers.
  9. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  10. In a large saucepan, bring the water and baking soda to a boil. Add 1-2 bagels at a time and let the, boil for 1 minute. Then, flip them and let them boil for another minute.
  11. Scoop them out of the water with a slotted spoon and place them in the prepared baking sheet.
  12. Once all the bagels had been through the same process, transfer them to the oven and bake for 15 – 17 minutes until golden brown.
  13. Let them cool completely on a wire rack.

To Make the Cream Cheese:

  1. In a food processor or high-speed blender, blend the cashews (soaked and rinsed), nutritional yeast, maple syrup, lemon juice, salt, and apple cider vinegar until smooth.





I’m a lover of food raised in Argentina: the land of meat and abundant cheese. From the time that I was a small child I eschewed meat, and later in life my body revolted against all lactose. I was used to being the oddball. Still facing the battle of family and friends who don’t understand what it means to be a vegan, I took up the torch and started cooking, and writing about eating healthy, without meat, and without dairy. I soon learned that there were those who faced the same challenges that I do. So I made it my mission to create dishes that could be reminiscent of the classic argentinian cuisine I grew up with, while being the most nutritious, healthier and delicious option.
