Low carb Bagels
For the bagels:
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 2 large eggs
For toppings (optional):
- Everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, etc.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheeses are melted and well combined. This usually takes about 1-2 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the dry almond flour mixture to the melted cheese mixture. Crack in the eggs. Use a spatula or your hands to mix everything until a dough forms. If the dough becomes too sticky, you can wet your hands slightly to handle it more easily.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.
- Roll each portion into a ball, then use your finger to poke a hole through the center to create a bagel shape. Gently stretch the hole to make it larger if needed.
- Place the bagels onto the prepared baking sheet.
- If you’re using toppings, you can sprinkle them over the top of the bagels now. Press them gently into the dough so they adhere.
- Bake the bagels in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
- Once done, remove the bagels from the oven and let them cool slightly before slicing and serving.
