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.


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. 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.
  5. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.
  6. 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.
  7. Place the bagels onto the prepared baking sheet.
  8. 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.
  9. Bake the bagels in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  10. Once done, remove the bagels from the oven and let them cool slightly before slicing and serving.
