What can I use to stick sesame seeds to bagels? Egg allergy.

I'm making a double batch of bagels for a friend and I just remembered about the egg wash to stick the seeds on we usually use EnerG egg replacer and I don't have any at my house. Any suggestions, need to bake them soon?

A little milk or water should work just fine.

I agree, spritz or brush them with either. Milk might actually work a bit better than water.
