I first started to make my own homemade bagel chips because Glutino bagel chips discontinued theirs. How am I supposed to make Gluten Free Chex Mix without the bagel chips?
Spoiler alert, I can’t. They’re the best part!
I’ve been working on a new flavor of homemade Chex Mix – it’s magnifique! Can’t wait to share it with you. Of course, these bagel chips were involved.

Key Ingredients for Homemade Bagel Chips
- Bagels – I’ve made these with Canyon Bakehouse and another brand of gluten free bagels that were shelf stable and in a yellow package. I can’t remember the name but they definitely weren’t Schar. Somebody help me out!
- Fat – For this recipe, you can use melted butter or oil. I use pure Olive Oil or avocado oil.
- Garlic Salt – garlic salt is my favorite way to season bagel chips. Feel free to use your favorite seasoning instead.
- 1 Rimmed Half Sheet Pan
- Bread Knife – make sure it’s nice and sharp for easier slicing!
- Cutting Board
Dairy Free Bagel Chips
To make dairy free bagel chips, make sure your bagels don’t contain milk or dairy products. Use the oil option instead of melted butter.
How to Make Bagel Chips
Step 1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Step 2. Slice the bagels into thin pieces and place on a rimmed half-sheet pan. Pour the oil or melted butter over the sliced bagels and sprinkle with the garlic salt. Toss together to coat the bagels with the oil/butter and salt.
Step 3. Spread the bagels out in an even layer on the baking sheet and bake on the center rack for 15 minutes. Then remove from the oven and stir the bagel chips. Spread them back out into an even layer and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until crips all the way through.
Tips for Making Gluten Free Bagel Chips
Use shelf stable bagels for best results. They’ll be much easier to slice.
Don’t worry about perfect slices. Imperfect pieces taste just as good!
If your bagels are pre-sliced, find the section that hasn’t been sliced through. Start cutting your bagel chips there and you’ll have a few whole pieces.
