Asian Bagels


Jump to Recipe
I think for most people, there comes a point in your keto journey where you JUST WANT SOME BREAD! Especially in the morning.  The eggs, bacon and avocados just weren’t doing it for me anymore.  I missed having variety.  I missed having bagels and cream cheese.  Up until then, I had never tried to make any kind of keto friendly baked goods.  I just did without and I was fine.  However, since I couldn’t stomach another day of my usual breakfast, I decided I was going to attempt to make keto friendly bagels.  I scoured the internet looking for the best recipe and of course I added my own Asian twist to them.  To my surprise, they were so easy to make and really satisfied my bagel and cream cheese craving.  Disclaimer, if you’re expecting it to taste just like a regular bagel, it won’t be that.  However, it will be a delicious bread-like bagel that you can eat with cream cheese or your favorite toppings.

When making this, make sure you really mix the dough well. Don’t be afraid to get in there with your hands and if the mozzarella and almond flour are not coming together well, just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and knead until everything is completely combined. Doing this will ensure your bagels have the right texture.  Furikake is a dry Japanese seasoning usually sprinkled on rice and creates a savory umami flavor. You can omit the furikake and just make them plain, or sprinkle your choice of toppings.

Now, let’s get started!

6) Dump the almond flour mixture into the cheese bowl while still warm and quickly knead with hands until dough like consistency and everything is fully combined.  If dough cools too much just microwave for a few seconds, take out and knead again.

7) Take enough dough a little larger than a golf ball and form a log by rolling it between your hands. Then place on the silicone mat and join the ends together. Repeat until all dough is used.

8) Sprinkle furikake on top of the bagels. Press some down lightly to make the furikake seasoning stick.
