KETO EVERYTHING BAGELS
Initially, I was skeptical of making a keto dough, but it was pretty fast and very simple. The key is to continue to heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals until all of the ingredients are combined with no lumps. Makes 6 bagels.
2 C organic almond flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp oregano
3 C organic low moisture mozzarella cheese
5 Tbsp organic cream cheese
3 Tbsp everything bagel seasoning (combine poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion in a bowl and set aside)
1 tsp JF Universal Salt
PROCESSPreheat the oven to 425º. Line a regular size baking sheet with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder and onion powder and mix very well. From some recipes I looked at they say you should even run the flour through a sifter but I didn’t….your call I’m lazy like that). Add 2 of the eggs to the flour mixture and mix very well.
In a small separate dish, crack and whisk the other egg and set to the side.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the mozzarella and the cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1.5 minutes. Remove and mix well and place back in for another 1 minute. Remove and mix until well combined and add to the flour mixture. It will be funky and stringy and you will think, “this isn’t working," but it is….be patient. I used my hands to mix and pull the almond flour through the cheese mixture to create a dough. Place back in the microwave and reheat and remix. Repeat and repeat until it is FULLY combined. Once it finally comes together you will see it is a smooth dough.
Portion the dough in half then into 3 balls from each half to make 6 balls total. Place the balls on the baking sheet and roll to smooth balls then pinch a hole in the middle of each to create a “bagel” shape.
The shape of the dough doesn’t change much when baked so make them as perfect looking as you can. Brush with egg wash and then generously sprinkle with the everything seasoning and with JF Universal Salt to create the topping (you can even roll the dough in the everything mixture prior to forming the “bagels” if you want more seasoning. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden.
Slice and toast when ready to eat. Store any extras in the fridge or freezer.
