The Best Keto Bagels Recipe - Low Carb & Gluten Free (1)

This bagel recipe is a modified version of our Keto Pretzels and is topped with our Everything Seasoning.

Ensure that your keto bagel holes are a little bigger than you think they should be. These low-carb bagels will rise as they cook, and the holes can close if they are not wide enough.

Why do we use inulin? Inulin is a low-carb substitute that works like sugar when proofed with yeast. Yeast needs food to work correctly and get the rise needed for these low-carb bagels without sugar.

Keto Bagel Ingredients

The Best Keto Bagels Recipe - Low Carb & Gluten Free (2)
  • 2 teaspoons of Yeast, dried
  • 1 teaspoon of Inulin
  • 2 tablespoons of Warm Water
  • 10 ounces of Mozzarella Cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of Butter
  • 6 ounces of Almond Flour
  • 2 teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum
  • 3 large eggs, one is for egg wash
  • 2 tablespoons of Everything Seasoning

How to Make Keto Bagels

  1. Add the yeast, inulin, and warm water in a large mixing bowl and set aside to proof.
  2. Melt the mozzarella and butter until it’s completely melted. This can be done in the microwave or a saucepan on the stove.
  3. Once the yeast is foamy, add the almond flour, baking powder, and xanthan gum and mix well.
  4. Pour the hot melted cheese mixture into the almond flour mixture. When it’s about halfway mixed, add two eggs.
  5. Continue mixing until you have a slightly sticky dough. I highly recommend mixing the dough with gloved hands for the best results.
  6. Set the dough aside and prepare a large cookie sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Set your oven to 180C/355F.
  7. Split your dough into eight evenly sized-pieces. Ours weighed out between 75-80g/2.6-2.8oz.
  8. Roll each dough into a ball, then poke your finger through the middle to make an opening. To widen the opening, gently spin the dough around your finger like a tiny hula hoop.
  9. Place your bagel on the lined cookie sheet and repeat step 8 for the remaining dough pieces.
  10. Crack the extra egg into a small bowl and beat well.
  11. Spread your Everything Seasoning on a plate, ready for dipping.
  12. Gently brush each bagel with egg wash, then press into your seasoning. Place it back on the cookie sheet and continue with the other bagel.
  13. Once all the bagels are seasoned, leave them in a warm place for 15 minutes to proof.
  14. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until browned.
  15. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes before enjoying.

  3. I was wondering if there is anything else I could substitute for inulin in your bagel recipe?

    Reply

    • Hi Jane,

      There are no low carb substitutes for the inulin.

  4. Why you have to add 1 teaspoon inulin? Can you make the bagels without it or substitute it with something else?

    Reply

    • Hi Lyne,

      The inulin is the “food” for the yeast, which helps give rise to the bagels. Without it, the bagels will be denser and won’t rise as much.
