“what’s the purpose of vital wheat gluten?”

BEST EVER LOW-CARB BAGELS (Yeast-Risen)

BEST EVER LOW-CARB BAGELS (Yeast-Risen)

low-carb bagelslow-carb bagelslow-carb bagelsHOLY CRAP GUYS.

HOLY CRAP.

These are amazing. Like I cannot contain my excitement.

I have been attempting low-carb bread and bagel recipes for AGES AND AGES.

I feel like I’ve finally cracked the code.

These bagels not only LOOK like real bagels, they also toast up perfectly like real ones!!

I’m actually almost in tears (okay not really) but I’ve missed bagels so much being on a keto diet and these are such a nice replacement. They also aren’t hard to make! Sure anything yeast risen takes a bit of extra effort but these are worth it. Plus the flavour possibilities are endless…

Just a quick note, these bagels are NOT gluten-free but they are low-carb. You can totally eat these on a keto diet if you do not have a gluten allergy. Just as with anything, make sure they fit your daily carb count. (These are 5g of NET carbs each).

Anyways, without further ado, if you are a bagel lover like me but can’t justify eating that many carbs daily… these beautiful babies are for you. Continue reading “BEST EVER LOW-CARB BAGELS (Yeast-Risen)”
