Low Carb & Gluten Free Bagels

Sharing is caring!

 This recipe is just yummy and I can slather them with cream cheese in the mornings and be ready for a day of number crunching!   You need a donut pan or could make them by hand…but I recommend that you get a donut pan..This version is onion and garlic as I prefer a savoury bagel flavour, but feel free to omit, make it plain, add other ingredients…Low Carb Bagels for all!! Woo hoo!

    I Just tried to make the bagels.
    I don’t have a donutpan, treid without it.
    They smell great, but didn’t rise at all. Any idea why they didn’t.

      Hi Rosi. I’m glad you enjoyed them but wonder if perhaps you should add a touch more baking powder next time to help them rise? Thanks for popping by!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with
    the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or
    did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the
    excellent quality writing, it is rare to
    see a nice blog like this one nowadays.

    The quantity of the ingredients doesn’t sound like it would make many bagels – how many regular sized bagels should this amount make?

      Hi Kim, it should make about six. Hope you enjoy them!

      I purchased mine from Geant in Ibn Battutua. It makes about 15-18 mini bagels.. And the Flax seed/coconut flour can be purchased from Geant/Organic Food shop. Enjoy!
