These Low Carb Bagels 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 low carb 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). If you’d like to read more about their main ingredient “Vital Wheat Gluten” then see my article here.
Guys I feel like I made history today. Low Carb Flatbread.
If you are someone who eats low carb then you will know what I mean when I say trying to find bread replacement options is NOT EASY.
A lot of keto bread recipes I’ve tried in the past have been huge flops(literally, I’ve seen them deflate before my eyes..LOL). BUT THIS ONE…oh this one is so different.
It’s soft, fluffy, actually tastes GOOD and works as a replacement for so many things! Burger buns, naan bread with dip, cheese bread, pizza crust, you name it!
Did I mention it only takes 2 minutes to prepare and 5-6minutes to bake?
Some Ingredients I’d like to Highlight:
Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
Vital Wheat Gluten – If you have questions about why I include this ingredient, I wrote an entire article on what it is and why I use Vital Wheat Gluten on my keto diet! I also included where to buy it, how many carbs it contains..and how to use it in different kinds of baking.
