Sunflower & Chia Seed Bagels

Fancy a couple of  low carb bagels for the weekend breakfast?  Try this sunflower and chia seed bagel recipe and you won’t be dissapointed.

Sunflower bagels

 

This is one of the bagel recipes from my coconut flour eCookbook.  I thought it would be a perfect recipe for the weekend to share.   As well as being low carb they are a great gluten free alternative to the real thing.  Probably healthier too as they are high in fibre due to the combination of coconut flour and pysllium husk powder.  

Chia Sunflower Bagels

When I  was experimenting with this recipe I made so many batches that I had to freeze some.   They kept well in the freezer and I took some along to the local vegetable market to give to one of my weekly vendors to try.   She loved them and was amazed that they were made with coconut flour.  I’m slowly spreading the word on the island about the wonders of coconut flour.  One market vendor at a time it seems!

    Are you meant to use the whole 1 cup of water? Or just enough to make a dough? Mine ended up really wet inside.

      Use enough to make a dough as variations of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour will differ slightly. I initially add about half a cup, then pour the rest in gradually until I get a dough.

    Thank you so much for your recipes, I started to try them. For this particular recipe I do not have psyllium husk powder, what can I use instead?

      Ground flaxseed/flaxseed meal might do it. Hope you enjoy the recipes!
