Prep Time

10 min

Cooking Time

16 min

Yields

6-9

Ingredients


  • 60 grams coconut flour about 1/2 cup
  • 2 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder can be cut in half to reduce sodium, but will result in flatter bagels
  • 250 grams mozzarella cheese shredded (about 2-1/2 cups)
  • 55 grams cream cheese 2 ounces
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted (add a bit more if needed and use unsalted to reduce sodium)

Directions


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Mix coconut flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in microwave on high power for one minute. Stir. Place back in microwave on high for another minute. Stir.
  • Using hands or dough hooks, mix in beaten eggs, butter, and coconut flour mixture until a dough is formed. Dough should be a bit wet and sticky. If dry, try adding in another egg or more butter.
  • Divide dough into 6 pieces and roll out each piece connecting the ends to form a bagel shape. Dough is easier to work with if hands are wet.
  • Place bagels on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for about 12-16 minutes or until lightly browned.

Notes


Each bagel has about 4g net carbs. 

If using baking SODA, reduce the amount to 2 teaspoons.

Reader mentions the following add-ins to help prevent the bagels from flattening during baking and add flavor: Add a tablespoon almond flour… A tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes… Seasonings of garlic and onion powder and about a teaspoon of Xanthan powder…. 

Another reader notes that a hard tack consistency can be achieved by putting them in a low temp oven (210°F) for 4-5 hours after the bagels cool.
