One of my favorite things about going keto (other than the unicorn skin, magical sleep, hormone balance, and 20-pound weight loss) is finding newer, healthier ways to eat the things I heart(ed) when I was a carb-o-holic. Homemade Keto Bagels sit at the top of that list!

EASIER TO MAKE THEN YOU THINK!
I found a great recipe over at Wholesome Yum so I can’t claim this for my own. But, I will share my experience baking these bready bites of goodness and also brag about how awesome I am at it. Hee-hee.
HOMEMADE KETO BAGELS
These homemade keto bagels use a Fathead style recipe (we use this one when we make traditional fathead pizza). We make Fathead pizza on the regular but it was fun to do something a bit different with the dough to create more meal options.
You have to work super quickly with the dough – having a four-year-old doesn’t make this task an easy one, but I somehow manage every time. All you do is melt the cheese and sour cream in the micro, mix it up and then add the eggs and dry ingredients to form a super sticky dough.
Once you’ve done that, you make your little bagel shapes, plop it on some parchment and bake it for like, 12 minutes. Here’s the link to the recipe again in case ya missed it.
Oh, and PS. These keto bagels are gluten-free and have just 5 ingredients. here is nothing more magical than that (except eating them, obvsiously
LOTS OF VARIETY!
I’m sure you can do a million and one things with these bagels topping-wise. I’ve done sesame seeds and this Everything But The Bagel Seasoning and plan on trying bacon crumbles and maybe even something sweet (I bet a cinnamon/vanilla bagel would be INSANE good!
We eat them with butter or cream cheese, have made sandwiches, BLT’s and Pizza Bagels. The only bummer is that the recipe only makes 6 bagels – so if you have a house to feed, you’re gonna need to double up.
I’m sure the real things…well, I know the “real things” are even better, but that’s not my life anymore – these homemade bagels are a great substitute. The best part about being Keto is that you don’t have to let all of your favorites go. It takes a bit of adjusting and home baking, but you can have most of your favorites, in a newer, healthier format and still rock the benefits of grain-free, sugar-free living.
Let me know if you make them too! I’m obsessed!
