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)”

This new low-carb flatbread is stretchy, easily foldable, DOESN’T FALL APART. It has the texture and mouth feel of real flat bread..PLUS you can freeze it for later use without it becoming dried out quickly. Continue reading “EASY LOW-CARB FLAT-BREADS (YEAST RISEN!)”

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.

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?

High Protein Keto Cinnamon Rolls w/ Cream Cheese Glaze

High Protein Keto Cinnamon Rolls w/ Cream Cheese Glaze

DSC_0497DSC_0592

Keto Cinnamon Rolls…saying those three words together is just plain weird right?

But maybe not.

Keto Cinnamon Rolls are DEFINITELY a thing, but making keto cinnamon rolls vs. the regular flour and sugar laden cinnamon rolls is a whole other ball game.

First off, almond flour, the base to this recipe, has no gluten. Gluten is the protein found in bread that gives it it’s elasticity and airy-ness. No gluten=no gluten strands formed=dense “bread”.

Thus, in this recipe I have added vital wheat gluten(the isolated protein from bread) back to the recipe, this means we have all the gluten we need, without the carbs!

Tip:*Xanthan gum is also great for creating a similar texture to gluten!*

I’ve also added a teaspoon of sugar to this recipe. (OMG SUGAR, SAM, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING, THIS IS A KETO RECIPE!! SUGAR??).

Yes, I realize sugar is not keto guys, I haven’t lost it(yet) but thankfully yeast is a pretty greedy little monster and will eat up all of that sugar for us while it activates!

(I feel like I can relate to this on a physical level..GIVE ME ALL THE SUGAR.)

But it’s pretty great, huh?

This recipe also offers a whopping 20g of protein and 4g of fibre per serving making this a totallllly acceptable breakfast option (or lunch or dinner..I don’t judge).

What doesn’t this recipe offer??

Okay, maybe a self-baking option…but I mean where’s the fun in that? Obviously watching dough rise is one of my favourite past times..

But enough jokes, since this recipe isn’t going to bake itself, this is where you come in.

High Protein Keto Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:

-1/4 cup vital wheat gluten(36g)

-2 scoops(56g) Quest all purpose whey protein

-2 cups(224g) almond flour   +1/4(28g) cup reserved

-1/2 an envelope yeast (or 1 1/4 tsp) 

-1 tsp sugar (will be eaten by the yeast!)

-2 tbsp truvia sweetener (or 1/4 cup of sweetener that measures like sugar)

-1/4 tsp salt

-6 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

-2 tbsp water

-2 1/2(37g) tbsp butter

-1/2 a well beaten egg

Filling:

 -5 tbsp truvia (or 1/3-1/2 cup of sweetener that measures like sugar)

-1/2 tbsp cinnamon

-3 tbsp butter-softened

-Pecans (optional)

Glaze:

-1 tbsp coconut oil

-2 tbsp cream cheese

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-1-2 tbsp almond milk (optional- makes a glaze rather than a thick frosting)

-1 1/2 tsp pasteurized egg whites(safe at room temp.)

-2-3 tbsp splenda or another sweetener(to taste)

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients except the reserved flour in a large bowl.
  2. Heat your butter, milk and water in a microwave safe cup for roughly 50s to a minute. 
  3. Stir the warm mixture into the dry ingredients along with the egg.
  4. Use a spoon to start forming a dough. Add the extra 1/4 cup almond flour as you go to make it less sticky.
  5. Use your hands to begin kneading the dough.
  6. Knead it for roughly 3-5min (it contains quite a bit of vital wheat gluten so we want to be careful we don’t over-knead or it will become too dense).
  7. Next form the dough into a neat ball and sprinkle the bottom/sides of your bowl with almond flour before placing it back down.
  8. Cover the bowl with a towel and move it to a warm location like an oven that still has a bit of heat in it but is not hot, or use the microwave method (just heat water or nothing particular in it for about a minute or so before placing the dough in to rest).
  9. After and hour, remove the dough from the bowl and place it on an (almond) floured surface. 
  10. Roll the dough to be a rectangle roughly 12×9 inches in size (about 1/4 inch thick)(see instructional photo for a better idea-don’t mind the 5-year-old style rolling pin)DSC_0441
  11. Using a spoon, spread the butter gently over the entire surface of the dough then combine your cinnamon and sweeter of choice and sprinkle on top. DSC_0446DSC_0452
  12. Roll the dough, long-side to long-side, being careful not to tear it. Tuck in the ends and use your fingers to press any cracks back together if they do occur. DSC_0458
  13. Next, slice the dough into 7 even pieces and place them, inner-side up, in a butter or coconut oil greased baking dish. DSC_0469
  14. *Cover the rolls and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes in a warm location.DSC_0476
  15. Finally, bake the rolls uncovered at 375* for 15-18min. (I purposely took them out a little early so they wouldn’t over-bake).DSC_0483
  16. Combine your coconut oil and cream cheese in a microwave-safe dish and microwave it for 30 seconds.
  17. Mix in your egg whites, vanilla and sweeter and almond milk until it becomes smooth.
  18. Drizzle or spread on the glaze on each cinnamon roll and then don’t wait for them to cool at all, just tear them straight out of the pan and devour them like a crazy hungry keto monster. DSC_0510
  19. JK. If you want to be normal and not burn your mouth(that definitely didn’t happen to me…..)then wait for the cinnamon rolls to cool before gently removing them from the dish with a knife or spatula (trust me, it will make your life SO much easier).
  20. NOW you can devour them. ENJOY!DSC_0565

    Destroyed.
  21. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freeze until you have another cinnamon roll craving!
