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 the dough by hand, but I found it easier to use my stand mixer to turn the ingredients into the 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!
Make these easy keto bagels with just 5 simple main ingredients, and for only 5 net carbs each!
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
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix almond flour and baking powder in a bowl.
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.
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).
Cut dough ball into 6 sections.
Roll each section into a tube shape and pinch together ends to form a bagel shape.
Place bagels on a parchment lined baking sheet or silicone lined baking sheet.
Press poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top of bagels, as desired.
Bake for 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown.

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!
Hip Tip: 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.
