    Mold into bagel shapes

    Divide dough into four balls. Place balls on a parchment lined baking tray about 2 inches apart. Using your finger make a circle in the center of each ball. Make sure the circle is a little wider than a typical bagel as the bagels will rise and fill in the circle as they bake. Brush with egg white for egg wash to create a shine on top. **NOTE: When handling dough, it's best to wet your hands or spray oil on them in order to keep the dough from sticking to your hands.

Keto Flours for Bagels

In this recipe, I use a combination of almond flour, unflavored low carb protein powder and inulin powder. The protein powder helps to puff up these low carb bagels, while the inulin powder helps keep this recipe low carb and provides a chewy texture.

There are some substitutions you can do if you don’t want to use some of the ingredients. You can omit the inulin powder and use 1 1/2 cups almond flour. If you don’t want to use all almond flour, you can use 1/2 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup of lupin flour. This also helps to keep the net carbs low; however, the lupin flour gives the keto bagels a yellow coloring.

The best part about this recipe is that it doesn’t contain fathead dough, mozzarella cheese or cream cheese! Many keto bagel recipes use fathead dough or some version of it which makes the recipe loaded with cheese and dairy plus it might have a cheesy flavor.

Keto Approved Spreads for Bagels

You can enjoy these keto bagel, plain but I like to add spreads to my bagels. Some keto friendly toppings and spreads you can add to your bagels are:

  • butter
  • cream cheese
  • avocado
  • avocado spread
  • salmon spread
  • almond butter
  • peanut butter

I love to make these bagels ahead of time and use them for breakfast throughout the week. You can store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can freeze these for up to 3 months.

  1. Delicious ?! I followed most the whole recipe. I had to exclude the insulin becase I had none but used the almond flour substitute an added the extra 2 table of water. I also added in the leftover egg yolk because I didn’t want to waste it! What a delightful treat! I served Hubby’s with butter and jam and mine, butter alone. I will make them often! Oh, I doubled the recipe. Made 3 with poppy seeds, the rest with parmesan cheese on top

  2. I made these tonight but they really didn’t rise and are small. I believe you may have a typo in the keto flours section. You say that instead of 1.5 cups almond flour (if not using inulin) you can use ½ cup almond flour and ¼ cup lupin flour. Which I did but after cooking them and realizing something was wrong I did a little research and I think that it should be 1 cup almond flour and ¼ cup lupin flour.

    Reply

    1. I reviewed my baking note and they are correct 1/2 cup almond flour + 1/4 cup lupin flour. Did you forget the protein powder?

  5. All I need to do if I do not have whey powder and inulin powder is to add to 1 1/2 cups of almond flour and maybe extra 2 tbsp water?

    Reply

    1. Yes, you might not need the water. But add the almond flour and see how the consistency is. If it’s too dry, then add the water.

      Reply

      1. Wish you would have made that note in the directions. I think my dough was too wet and wouldn’t cook through. Over doubled the time and then they were a bit crumbly. Not sure what I did wrong. Maybe it was simply the extra water because I only used almond flour. I’m not an experienced baker so I have no idea. I also didn’t use and egg wash because apparently that’s just for aesthetics and I didn’t want to waste the egg white.

  7. I have had bagels all week! They dry out fast, but you sure can get creative when you have a bagel as foundation. I made pizza, sandwiches, toasted bagels, etc.

  9. I made a mini version of these. Delicious. Was wondering if it would be possible to make a loaf of bread with these ingredients?

    1. I haven’t tried that substitution. It might work. If you try it let me know how it turns out.

  12. Love these, but I think I made them even better. I made the lupin flour version, and added a 1/4 cup of vital wheat gluten. It is really low in carbs., only adds 4 carbs total for all the gluten, but the lupin flour version has less carbs anyway. Not perfectly like a bagel, but better than before. Of course not gluten-free now, but still good. Consider adding wheat gluten, as it only takes a bit.

  13. Easy to make and tasty, but mine turned out more like cakes than bagels. I used the all almond flour as I didn’t have inulin. Wondered what I did wrong. Thoughts?

  14. Re. Sweetener Necessary?
    Thank you for this recipe!! I am not a fan of fathead dough especially when there is not alot of fiber in it and wanted something for a hamburger. I just made this and they look good: hamburgers tonight!!! A question: is there a reason for the sweetener or can you leave it out … I prefer a more savory taste????
