Craving bagels but can’t afford the carbs? Today, we fix that and make some Low Carb Keto Bagels! These are super easy to make, great for those on a low carb or keto diet, actually have the taste and texture of a bagel, and the best part? You probably already have all the ingredients on hand!
Like making recipes like this? Buy your almond and coconut flour in bulk, it’s WAY cheaper!
Start this one by adding into a bowl 2 1/2 cups of a shredded cheese and 2 ounces of cream cheese. I’m using mozzarella but cheddar or even a blend is great too depending on the flavor you’re going for.
Mozzarella is pretty bland so it makes for a great keto bagels base. You could also use reduced fat or fat free if you’re not worried about the carbs.
Throw those 2 ingredients in the microwave for around a minute depending on how powerful your microwave is and mix them together. They should mix easy if you microwaved them for long enough.
Throw that back in the microwave for an additional :30 seconds.
Right after the microwave add into that same bowl 3 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 large beaten whole eggs, 1/2 of coconut flour, 2 tablespoons of almond flour, any seasonings, herbs, or spices you want your bagels to have (I like garlic seasoning), 1 tablespoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum.
Mix those together with something that won’t break or just use your hands (more fun).
Once it feels like dough and looks mixed together, take out a donut pan. Coat that pan with some non-stick cooking spray then rip off a piece of your dough and roll it up. Press that into your donut pan.
If you really don’t want to buy a donut pan just to make keto bagels you can take out a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put your rolled dough on that.
Last, top your bagels with whatever you want. I’m using an everything seasoning mix I found at Walmart.
Throw those into the oven on 400F/204C for around 10-14 minutes or until they look like this…
There are your Low Carb Keto Bagels! Yes, they taste just as good as they look and even better when you lightly toast them.
Get creative with these and you’ll never get sick of them. Cinnamon raisin topped with some protein frosting, onion topped with some chive cottage cheese, and so on!
Let the community know in the comments below what seasonings you use, what you top yours with, and/or what you add in so we can think outside the box together.
