Of course in my former pre-Paleo life I loved bagels and grew up in the 1990’s heyday of whole grain hedonism. There was a bagel shop that popped up on every corner when I was kid. I love bagels with light cream cheese or low fat spray butter which does not provide nutrient density. Lots of Paleo bagels are made with a lot of carbs such a tapioca or arrowroot. My readers often tell me that doesn’t go down well and for me too it is not ideal. I wanted to make a bagel that has a chewy texture but is still low in carbs.
Another issue is nuts, many times almond flour is like a brick in my stomach so I avoid eating too much. My husband will not eat a burger without at least a gluten free bun. He was excited when I made these and we used them at dinner for our hamburgers. It was great to hold somethings and not just have a lettuce wrap. These bagels would be great with my strawberry and cream jam.
Recipe: Low Carb Breakfast Bagels with Sesame Seeds (Paleo and Nut Free)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 12-15 minutes
Yield: 4-6 bagels
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the eggs, flax, and vinegar in one bowl and let the mixture sit until gelled about 5 minutes. Mix the coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt in another bowl. Combine the two mixtures and pour into a greased bagel/donut pan. Add the sesame seeds on top and place in the oven to bake. Check the bagels after 12 minutes and leave in a bit longer if needed. Let them cool outside of the oven for 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
