Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix almond flour, baking powder, and garlic salt together in a bowl.

  • Combine mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute; remove and stir. Microwave for 1 minute more; remove and stir until well incorporated. Stir flour mixture and eggs into the melted cheese mixture, working quickly. Knead by hand until a sticky dough forms. Keep kneading and squeezing until dough is completely uniform, about 2 minutes.

  • Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Roll each into a long log, then press ends together in a bagel shape and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bagels are golden, 10 to 14 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't want to use the microwave, heat the cheeses in a double broiler on the stove over low heat, stirring frequently, until completely melted.

If the dough becomes hard before fully mixed, is too difficult to mix, or is still sticky after a couple minutes, you can reheat for 15 to 20 seconds to soften it. In that case, wash your hands and knead again. It is important for the dough to be completely uniform. You shouldn't have pieces of cheese separate from areas of almond flour. Keep kneading.

Great bread recipe for a keto diet. Very good hot out of the oven. Holds up well in the toaster. Slices nicely for sandwiches. Didn't have garlic salt so substituted 1 teaspoon of salt and garlic powder which may have made it a little salty for my taste will cut salt in half next time. Dough is really sticky. I used a pastry scraper to help with the kneading and olive oil on the hands when forming the bagels. May be my oven but I had to bake them a little longer to get the golden brown color. Will make again and experiment with different herbs and spices...maybe even a sweet version. Thanks for this recipe....a winner. Read More

I ve been doing the keto diet for the past 5 weeks and was looking for an east bread alternative. I tried this recipe and made it as specified but found the dough was too sticky and I added 1/2 cup more almond flour to it. I made 9 mini bagels out of this dough and they came out very salty and not at all a bagel consistency or texture. They re more like a biscuit but they still taste good. I won t be using these as bagels but rather as a biscuit. Read More

These were really good. The texture wasn't exactly like real bagels obviously but it was much better than other low carb breads. My dough was pretty soft so I found it easiest to shape them by forming them into balls and then poking a hole through the middle. They were really easy to cut and weren't crumbly and dry. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I'm not a big fan of fathead dough. But if you are needing a bread fix it does give you that savory feeling without the carbs. This particular recipe was too salty for me. These really don't make good bagels though. They don't toast up well and stay soggy/wet in the middle from all the cheese in them. They make decent sandwiches and can be used in other recipes such as pizza etc. I enjoyed trying the recipe. Thanks! Read More
