Homemade Bagel Chips – Air Fryer Recipe

  • Author: Amy Estes
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 5-6 servings 1x


These homemade bagel chips are irresistibly crunchy and cook in the air fryer in just 5 minutes! Enjoy them as a light and richly flavorful healthy snack everyone will love. Customize them to your taste or even make them gluten-free!


  • 2 large bagels – I used plain bagels (not split)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Cut the bagels into chips – use a sharp kitchen knife or serrated knife and cut each bagel into a C-shape, cut them again, and then cut into chips that are about 1/8-inch thick. The thinner you cut the chips the quicker they will cook but you do not want to cut them too thin or they will fall apart. 
  2. Season – place the bagel chips into a medium bowl, drizzle them with olive oil, and season with salt. Toss to coat them in the oil and salt. 
  3. Cook – preheat the air fryer to 380°F and spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place the bagel chips into the air fryer basket and give it a good shake to evenly distribute them. Some overlapping is okay. Cook for 4-6 minutes, shaking the chips in the basket halfway through the cooking time to get them nice and golden all around. 
  4. Serve – let the chips cool for a few minutes since they will crisp up even more as they cool and serve plain or with your favorite dipping sauce. 


  • I recommend using unsplit bagels since they will yield larger, more even-sized chips when you cut them. I got mine at the bakery in our local grocery store. 
  • Any flavor bagels will work in this recipe. 
  • Store leftover bagel chips in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
