Keto is definitely talked about lately. I have some family members who stick with it and feel and look incredible. Makes me think I should give it a good college try. I was hanging out with a friend and she had some Keto bagels another friend made for her. I gave it a try and couldn’t believe how good it was! I found a recipe and modified it to what I had in my house. I have to tell you I was beyond happy with the results. It is super easy, which is always a bonus.
I started by getting all the ingredients. Mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, olive oil, almond flour, baking powder, egg, and seasoning. I used my Penzey’s spice mixture recipe found here and Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel sesame seasoning blend. This stuff is AWESOME!
You will take the mozzarella and cream cheese and start melting it in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. I do 30 seconds at a time. Stir in between until it’s all melted then add egg.
Stir together with the Almond flour mixture until well combined. I use my hands to kneed it a bit to make sure it was all combined
Break dough into four balls and start rolling out and forming bagel shape. Once all completed you brush olive oil on with a silicone brush and sprinkle with any seasoning you want. I love the Everything But seasoning.
Then you bake for about 20 minutes. The beautiful thing is that these are good for a couple days! I just warm them or toast them just like a would with any bagel. They make a perfect breakfast sandwich or just some bread with a yummy salad. You definitely won’t miss bread with these around if your eating a low carb diet!
- 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (I love Tillamook)
- 3 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 cup super fine almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp Penzey’s spice mixture (sea salt, dried garlic, and sea salt)
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- Everything But seasoning or any other seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and begin heating 30 seconds until all melted and mixed together.
Mix almond flour, baking soda and Penzey’s spice mixture until well combined.
When cheese is all melted mix in the egg and then mix in the almond flour mixture. Stir until well combined. Knead until mixture is all together.
Divide dough into four balls. Roll out into about 6 inch strips and make bagel shape and set on greased cooking sheet. Brush olive oil on with silicone brush and sprinkle with desired Everything But seasoning.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. I would start checking on the bagels at around 15 minutes just because ovens vary. Then enjoy!!
If bagels are not eaten all right away, cool them, then store in sealable bag with a paper towel to absorb any moisture. Reheat in microwave or toaster.
