In the grocery last week, bagels caught my eye. We rarely buy them, and I thought it might make a fun breakfast. I picked them up for a quick ingredient check and…THE HORROR.
Ingredient #2 was high fructose corn syrup. No thank you.
Vore and I used The Breadbaker’s Apprentice to make an at home alternative. Darn if they weren’t delicious and super fun to make!
