Miss Bagels? These Easy Keto Bagels Are Only 5 Net Carbs!

These easy keto bagels require only a few ingredients.

Did you know you can make easy keto bagels from scratch?

Let me introduce you to this delicious dough recipe that uses mozzarella cheese and almond flour and can be used in all sorts of keto recipes as a bread replacement. Today I’m sharing how you can make these easy keto bagels with just 5 simple main ingredients, and for only 5 net carbs each!

The secret to these bagels is baking powder!

It will help your bagels get very puffy in the oven. For this recipe, it’s recommended to use the super-fine almond flour in order to achieve the best bread-like texture.

Helpful Tips For Making Keto Bagels:

  • You can mix by hand, but I found it easier to use my stand mixer to turn the ingredients into dough! Then you can divide up your dough ball and roll out into bagels for baking.
  • If your dough ball is super sticky to work with, try placing it in the fridge for a few minutes, then continue. That usually helps me!
  • Please note you’ll need to place bagels on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, not wax paper. You can also opt for a silicone lined baking sheet pan, like I used.

  • 1-1/2 cups super-fine almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • sesame cheese and poppy seeds for topping as needed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix almond flour and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stop at the one minute mark, stir cheeses, and return for another minute in microwave.
  4. Stir together beaten eggs, cheeses, and flour mixture into a dough. (I used my stand mixer to do this, but you can also mix by hand. The more you mix, the less sticky the dough becomes.)
  5. Cut dough ball into 6 sections.
  6. Roll each section into a tube shape and pinch together ends to form a bagel shape.
  7. Place bagels on a parchment lined baking sheet or silicone lined baking sheet.
  8. Press poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top of bagels as desired.
  9. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown.
Recipe Notes

Love everything bagels?

Those are my absolute favorite! I topped my bagels with sesame seeds and poppy seeds before baking, but I usually use Everything but the Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe’s.

Enjoy Keto approved bagels with your cream cheese!

This is such a yummy and easy to make breakfast idea! How about adding an egg and bacon for a delicious breakfast sandwich? SO GOOD!

The inside texture of the bagels can be a bit soft, so cut the bagels in half and toast them for a crispier texture. Enjoy!

    Can I make my own super fine almond flour by using the almond flour from Costco and putting it in like Blendtec or something for a few minutes or Vitamix

      • Mel

        Not sure what I did wrong, but the dough was a sticky mess after stirring in the melted cheese. Maybe I should have used my mixer rather than stirring with a spoon? I cut into 6 pieces and put the board in the fridge for a bit, but they were still sticky when I rolled them out.
        Baked for 12 mins, and when I pulled the pan out, the dough had spread, so they looked like buns rather than bagels and they didn’t rise up much. that was my fault as I shoulda checked the baking powder… it was a tad out of date (Jan ’18) But they were at least edible!
        So note to self.. buy baking powder and have lots of mozz & cream cheese on hand!!

      You could, however your results may not be the same. If you do try it, be sure to let us know how it turns out!

    I have been eating Keto the last 2 2/1 weeks…and have lost 10 lbs. The day I decided to start your website came out within a few days. I’ve been trying lots of recipes and just made and ate the warm Keto bagel. I didn’t add the seeds but put Kerry butter on top to add fat…delicious!! I am stuffed and satisfied my bread cravings. Thanks for sharing!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You can! However, Almond flour is finer and measures differently. You may want to try it with a halved recipe…just in case. Hope that helps!

    No rise, and possibly too much mozzarella? It’s too hot to shred, do you have a weight measurement for the mozarella?

    • Lina D

      If you’re not rising, try adding an extra .5-2 tsp baking powder to the recipe (experiment for best results). Also make sure it’s not expired. Hand beating the eggs to whip some air into them prior to adding to the rest of the ingredients might help whip some extra air into the recipe as well.
