Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bagel Bread


This recipe for Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bagel Bread is a version of my super popular everything bagel bread and it is sooooo great! Making bagels from scratch seems a bit time consuming (shaping each one, etc) but making bagel bread seemed right up my alley and easy enough. And this recipe is so easy! It tastes just like an everything bagel but you slice it like bread.

Fluffy, with a chewy exterior, just like bagels. The secret is in the soft dough, which rises to create that amazing fluffy texture, and then the dough is boiled in baking soda which gives it that chewy crust and helps it brown beautifully in the oven.

How to enjoy it? Well, just like you would a bagel OR bread. It’s both! It is amazing toasted with vegan cream cheese.

  • Yield: 1 loaf


Tastes like a cinnamon toast crunch bagel, but can be used like bread! So delicious!


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp warm water (about 105 F)
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/23 cups flour (if you use bread flour you’ll need closer to 2 1/2 cups and all purpose closer to 3 cups)
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar + 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 5 tbsp vegan butter (either cut squares from a stick or you can melt it and drizzle it overtop)


  1. Combine warm water and yeast and let sit 5 minutes. Add to stand mixer bowl with sugar and salt. Add the flour and knead about 5 minutes in stand mixer until not sticky to the touch.
  2. Cover and let rise 30 minutes. Then shape into a greased loaf pan and rise another 40 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  4. Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add 1 tbsp baking soda. Boil the dough for 1 minute, then flip and boil on the other side for 1 minute.
  5. Remove from pot and let the water drip off, then add back into loaf pan. Cut a few slits in the top for steam. Sprinkle on the cinnamon brown sugar mixture, and add the vegan butter on top.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until deeply browned on top.
  7. Let cool before slicing. I love to serve with vegan cream cheese! It is also great toasted.
