There are few versions out there to make keto low carb bagels, but if you tried the fat head dough and made pizza out of it, you probably appreciate how delicious fat head pizza crust is. It is very popular and has been a life saver for low carbers everywhere, including my friend who has a 12 year old with Type 1 diabetes and who’s a very picky eater.

    If you love bagels, why not make keto low carb bagels out of the fat head dough that practically require 5 ingredients, very easy to make, chewy and delicious. And if you sprinkle “Everything but bagel” seasoning on top and bake with it, oh you will be in a bagel heaven without added load of carbs and sugar, and which definitely doesn’t taste low-carby. See Keto low carb bagels making in action video below.

    The everything but the bagel seasoning is Trader Joe’s exclusive and used to be sold at Trader Joe’s stores only but now you can get it on Amazon. It is amazing and can be used on anything. I use it on my bagels; the one type I like  with scallion cream cheese and smoked salmon is my favorite and another personal favorite is the one with fresh avocado. By the way, if you like your low carb bagel with avocado, this is a perfect balance of low carb, protein and high fat since avocado provide healthy fats.

Best low carb Keto Bagel with Everything Seasoning

Ingredients for Keto Low carb bagels:
1 and 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
3 TBS cream cheese
1 egg
1 cup Almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
Optional ingredients:
1 tsp spices like, dried oregano, basil, garlic powder
For topping:
Everything but the bagel seasoning or seasoning of your choice

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Microwave Mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl until soft, about 40 seconds.
  3. Add egg, Almond flour, remaining ingredients and spices and stir and blend well using spatula into a dough ball.
  4. Optional – you can proceed right away but for best results – let the mixture cool or freeze it for 30 minutes or else the dough may be sticky
  5. Divide the dough into 6 parts. Form a long log with each piece by rolling with your hands, then press the ends together to make a bagel shape on the lined baking sheet. You can use the bagel/donut pan if you have it. I didn’t have the pan, so rolling by hand and forming the dough into a circle works just fine. (see photo below)
  6. Sprinkle “Everything but the bagel seasoning” over the bagels and gently press into the dough. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the bagels are firm and golden.
  7. Serve fresh out of the oven, sliced in half and spread with cream cheese.

Recipe notes:
1. Leftovers (if any left) can be refrigerated for up to a week
2. Leftovers can be frozen as well – if freezing leftovers, slice bagel ahead of time. Place in toaster and toast for 1 minute.
3. If you have a nut allergy, you can substitute for Gluten free baking flour instead or Sunflower seed flour (meal) or CarbQuick baking mix
3a. I have also seen other people have baked these with protein powder, instead of Almond flour.
4. If you don’t have a microwave, melting ingredients on stove top will work too.
5. Try these bagels as bun or sandwich option – works amazing!
6. Below please find the printer friendly recipe, some more photos of the process and a video!
