Bagels with Fathead Dough – Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

Bagels with Fathead Dough - Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

If you are new to Keto, you might be missing those high carb breads and bagels.  These are a great replacement that are easy to make and will satisfy your cravings!  You can top them with a number of seasonings and eat them with butter, cream cheese or even make an egg and cheese sandwich!

 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups almond flour

2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

2 eggs, beaten

1 egg white, beaten with a little water (for brushing the tops of the bagels)

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Flavorless oil (for handling the dough/forming the bagels)

*Optional toppings (I use sesame seeds and Trade Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400F.

Place the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for 30 seconds or until both are melted.

Add the almond flour and baking powder in a bowl and whisk together to combine.  Add in the 2 beaten eggs and mix.  Then add in the mozzarella and cream cheese and combine.  As the cheese cools, it can become more difficult to mix, so if that happens, microwave the dough for 10 seconds and it should be easier to mix.

The dough will be very sticky, so be sure to oil your hands to make forming the bagels easier. Divide the dough into 6 balls and poke your finger in the center, then using both index fingers, widen the center hole until you have a bagel shape (see video).  You can also roll these out into logs, then form into bagels, I just prefer this method, it’s how I used to make regular bagels before Keto.

Place bagels on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper.  Brush the tops lightly with the beaten egg white and add your favorite toppings (or you can leave them plain).

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops have browned nicely.  Serve with some grass-fed butter, cream cheese or even make an egg and cheese sandwich!
