▢1 3/4 cup almond flour
▢1 tablespoon baking powder
▢3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
▢2 oz cream cheese softened
▢3 large eggs divided
▢1 tablespoon sesame seeds optional
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the almond flour and baking powder and set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, add the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave them together in 30-second spurts, until mostly melted. Whisk them together until smooth.
Transfer the mixture into a food processor, along with two of the eggs and dry ingredients, and pulse until smooth.
Lightly flour a kitchen surface with some almond flour. Transfer the dough onto it and divide it into eight equal portions. Roll out each piece of dough into a thin, sausage shape. Connect the sides to form bagels.
Place the bagels onto the lined baking sheet. Whisk the third egg in a small bowl then brush it over the tops of each bagel, then sprinkle your toppings of choice. Bake the bagels for 12-15 minutes, until firm and golden on top.
Remove the bagels from the oven and let them cool completely, before slicing and serving.
* Add an extra egg for an egg wash.
Topping suggestions are included in the post.
