Initially, I was skeptical about trying to make a Keto dough. But I have to say it was pretty fast and very simple. The key is to continue to heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals till all of the ingredients are combined with no lumps.
Recipe is for 6 Bagels
2 Cups Organic Almond Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Oregano (I like to grind it up into smaller flakes with a mortar and pestle )
3 eggs (2 for dough and 1 cracked & whisked in a bowl on the side as a wash for the tops of the bagels)
3 Cups Organic Low Moisture Mozzarella Cheese
5 tablespoon Organic Cream Cheese
3 tablespoons Everything Bagel Seasoning (Combine Poppy Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Dried Garlic, Dried Onion in a bowl and set aside)
1 teaspoon JF Universal Salt
Preheat oven 425
Line a regular size baking sheet with parchment pape
In a mixing bowl combine the Almond Flour, Baking Powder, Garlic Powder and Onion Powder….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 aside.
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 use my hands to mix and pull the almond flour through the cheese mixture to create a dough. Place back in microwave and reheat and remix. Repeat and Repeat till it is FULLY combined.
Your hands will be gross and have to wash a few times but once it finally comes together you will see it is a smooth dough.
Portion the dough in 1/2 then into 3 balls from each 1/2 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 Jennifer Fisher 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 approx. 12-14 minutes until golden.
Slice and Toast when ready to eat. Store in fridge or freezer.
