Cut the dough ball into 4 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough ball out into an 8-inch long rope, then bring the edges together to form a bagel shape, pinching the ends of the dough together to close the circle.

Lightly grease the bottom of the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Place the bagels into the basket, leaving about an inch of space between each. Note: if your air fryer is small, you may need to cook the bagels in two batches.
