Everyone is tired of eating the same breakfast. Trust me, I get it. Bacon and eggs are only good for so long. But what if you piled your bacon and eggs onto a bagel? A KETO BAGEL! That’s exactly what I did. I added fresh spinach, too!
What is Fathead Keto?
Fat Head is a documentary. It’s from 2009 and is a direct response to the controversial Super Size Me documentary. The narrator does a couple of experiments. One experiment is to eat a lot of food from McDonald’s in order to disprove the result of the Super Size Me documentary. His second experiment centers around a lipid hypothesis. He goes on a low-sugar, low-starch diet for a month. At the end of the month, he has lowered his cholesterol.
The documentary mentions a pizza that is made using almond flour. This recipe was adapted from the film.
How Do You Make Fathead Dough?
- You will need to microwave mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Next, add almond flour and eggs.
- Stir and combine to form a dough.
How Many Carbs Are in a Keto Bagel?
There are 2 net carbs in these keto fathead bagels, compared to 44 net carbs in traditional bagels.
Which Bread Has the Least Amount of Carbohydrates?
Ezekial Flax bread is pretty low in carbs, but not low enough for ketosis (in my opinion). You can read more about Ezekial Bread and Sugar Free Staples here.
What Can I Substitute for Bread?
Do You Use Coconut or Almond Flour for this Recipe?
I recommend almond flour. Coconut and almond flour absorb moisture differently.
How Do You Store Keto Bagels?
I store mine in sealable plastic bags in the fridge.
Keto Low-Carb Almond Flour Gluten-Free Bagels
Homemade Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
- 1 1/2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon poppyseeds
- Watch the video instructions above.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Add the almond flour and baking powder to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
- Add the cream cheese and shredded mozzarella to a separate bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds.
- Remove the bowl from the microwave.
- Stir in the almond flour. The mixture may become really thick and difficult to stir. If so, place the bowl back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.Remove from the microwave and stir. Add in the egg. Stir until the mixture forms dough. Ensure the cheese is fully melted and mixed. If there are large pieces of cheese, they will form on the outside of the bagel.
- Wet your hands with water. Knead the dough with your hands to form one large ball.
- Use a silicone spoon to scoop out 8 balls of dough. You will likely need to wet your hands in between forming each ball. Place them on the silicone baking mat.
- Use your fingers or a butter knife to create a circle in the middle of each ball. As the dough bakes and rises in the oven, the holes will close up some. Be sure to make the holes large enough so that when the dough rises and spreads the bagel doesn't close completely. You can also check in on the bagels while they are in the oven. If you see the circles closing up, use a knife to open them back up.
- Wet a cooking brush or your hands and wet the top of each bagel. This will help the seasoning stick.
- Sprinkle the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning throughout each bagel.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden-brown. Mine were ready right at 20 minutes.
