Wake me up, I must be dreaming... Keto Bagels

Delicious, chewy, toasted to perfection outer crunch, flavorful, no guilt 
low carb KETO BAGELS. Let's just say...YUM.

What I absolutely love about these ketogenic bagels is that they are so simple to throw together, just a few simple ingredients swirled together create an outstandingly flavorful bagel.  The crunchy texture leaves you wondering if it is actually a low carb / keto recipe?  No worries, when you see the list of ingredients on the recipe you will have no doubts AND when you taste the final product you may just scream at the top of your lungs... "Wake me up, I must be dreaming!" 

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup                  coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese 
  • 2 oz                          cubed cream cheese 
  • 2 large beaten eggs
  •  Everything but the Bagel - sesame seeds

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper 
or use stoneware greased with coconut oil.

2. Stir together the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder. Set to the side.

3. Combine the shredded mozzarella and cubed cream cheese in a large bowl. 

4. Microwave for 2 minutes, stop and stir halfway through. Stir briskly & thoroughly 
once completed.

5. Stir the flour mixture and the eggs into the melted cheese mixture.

6. Knead with your hands until a soft dough forms. The dough will be very sticky, 
but just keep kneading. If the dough becomes too firm before fully mixed, 
or is too difficult to mix, you can microwave for 15-20 seconds to soften it.

7. Divide the dough into 6 parts. Form a long log with each part, then press the 
ends together to make a bagel shape on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with the 
remaining dough. 

8. If using the delicious sesame seeds, sprinkle them over the bagels and gently 
press into the dough.

Bake for approx. 12 minutes, until the bagels are golden and firm. Serve warm or 
toast just before serving.

Topping the bagels with these delicious sprinkles takes them to a whole new level of deliciousness. 

 My family,  keto eaters (or the carb inhaling others) all gobble these down in no time. 
If you are looking for something that is delicious, crunchy-chewy as close as you can get bagel-licious than this is the recipe for you. When you bite into this you simply will not believe it is low carb. Who knew gluten free could be so delish. Kid you not.
