Seriously, this is the real deal, delicious and grain-free. Low carb and keto-friendly and provide protein too. The recipe makes 6 small to medium bagels and is very filling.

Keto Protein Bagel

The left bowl in the picture contains mozzarella cheese and it is how it should look, smooth, after microwaving for 30 seconds 3 times and mixing it well. I just used a silicone spatula to mix. It works wonders.

Preparation

Moving on to the bowl on the right with the almond flour, eggs, and whey protein. You can choose to mix the dough with your hands, as I did, or you can place all ingredients in the food processor and let it do the work. The dough will be sticky. I suggest using a little bit of avocado oil on your to ease the creative rolling process so you don’t fall in the sticky trap.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 large eggs (one saved for egg wash)
  • 1 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup whey protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  • everything season (to sprinkle on top of bagel)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats
  • In a small bowl, whisk together almond flour, salt, whey protein powder and baking powder. Set aside.
  • Add mozzarella and cream cheese to a large microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave at full power in 30 second intervals. After each 30 seconds, stir cheese until cheese is completely melted and uniform. In total you will microwave 3 times. Do not try to microwave for the full 1 1/2 minute the cheese will harden. You can also melt the cheese over the stove in a double boiler.
  • Add cheese, 1 egg and almond flour mixture into a food processor with dough blade attachment. Pulse on high speed until the dough is uniform. The dough will be quite sticky, which is normal (use some oil) or you can use manual labor and just mix well with a silicon spatula and your hands.
  • Shape them into a log then make a circle and place them on the baking sheet. Place the bagels 2 inch apart. I usually use to baking sheets and place 3 bagels on each
  • Add the final egg to a bowl and whisk. Generously brush surface of bagels with egg wash. Add bagel toppings on top at this time, as they will stick to the bagel.
  • Bake bagels for about 15 minutes in the middle rack of your oven, or until bagels are golden brown. Cool them on the rack before you start enjoying them.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

You can make 3 bagels if you want regular sized bagels. Depending on the oven type and temp the results can vary so always look for a golden brown finish as a finished end product.

About Me

Sometimes I tweak traditional recipes and sometimes I get bit by the creative bug and whip up new and unique ones. I’ve had the opportunity to try a variety of cultural dishes from the quarters of France to the mountains of Iceland, to the islands of Greece to the food trucks of New York City. They’re all full of flavor and I like to create healthier versions of these dishes while keeping the flavor intact. They’re healthier, so you can eat them all of the time! Enjoy these quick, easy (for the most part :-)) and oh so delicious recipes!
