One of my much coveted rituals when I was a kid was going to work with my mom during the summers to earn some extra mulah. We would stop at the local bagel shop before work and I’d get a toasted everything bagel smeared liberally with butter.

When I began eating gluten-free, it was not only difficult to find gluten-free bagels, but more importantly, good gluten-free bagels.

WELL.

Recently, the nostalgic need for revisiting that childhood experience hit so assertively that I made it my mission to make grain-free low-carb keto everything bagels at home. I simply couldn’t withstand my craving any longer.

If there were an alternative title to this post, it would be Why Didn’t I Do This 8 Years Ago? You guys, the bagels are just that good.

I have the answer to my own question, though…I assumed until recently that making grain-free paleo bagels was difficult. The way we do them in this post, they are not difficult at all!

Let’s discuss these keto bagels in detail.

How to Make Keto Bagels:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and break out your donut mold. I use a silicone donut mold, which does not need to be sprayed or oiled prior to using.

Stir together the ingredients for the everything bagel seasoning. I doubled Natalie Perry’s recipe for Everything Bagel Seasoning to flavor these beauties, which leaves you with some extra seasoning. You can use this seasoning for sprinkling on your avocado toast, scrambled eggs, roasted veggies, you name it!

Whisk together the eggs and cider vinegar in a mixing bowl until well combined.

How to make paleo bagels

Transfer the bagel dough to the donut mold and sprinkle liberally with additional everything bagel seasoning.

Bake! Allow the bagels to cool at least 15 minutes before removing them from the mold.

What do Low-Carb Keto Bagels Taste Like?:

I’m going to give it to you straight – these bagels are spongier and not as crispy as a regular bagel. The texture is not exact, but when they are toasted they really do quench that bagel hankering.

Can I Bake These Without a Bagel Mold?

YES, absolutely! You can use a muffin tray instead – just be sure to spray/grease it first. Obviously, you won’t end up with a standard bagel shape, but you will still be able to enjoy these lumps as rolls.

Can I Freeze Homemade Bagels?:

Yes, absolutely. Simply place them in a zip lock bag, seal them up, and freeze them for up to 1 month. When you’re ready to eat one, thaw it at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Toast to your heart’s delight and go from there.

Bagel Topping Ideas:

Personally, I feel like everything bagels are a savory affair. You could absolutely go with sweet toppings like almond butter, sliced banana, peanut butter and jelly, etc, but I prefer the salty approach. Here are some ideas:

  • You can go traditional with your standard cream cheese, or do as I do and smear with ghee or goat cheese. Recently, I’ve been adding smoked salmon.
  • Cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs and bacon.
  • Avocado and sunny side up or fried egg.
  • Goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, sauteed spinach.
  • Gouda cheese, turkey, pesto sauce

Recipe Adaptations:

  • This recipe has not yet been tested with other flours, so at the moment, I do not recommend any substitutions for the almond flour.
  • For a more bagel-like texture, use 1 ½ cups almond flour and ½ cup tapioca flour or arrowroot flour.
  • Omit the everything bagel seasoning to make these plain bagels.
  • Use an egg wash for a laquered bagel top.

Questions and Reviews

  1. Hey there this recipe looks amazing, I will definitely give it a try as soon as I can. I’d probably make a few batches and store it the freezer, does these freeze well?

    1. Hi Yanis,

      The bagels freeze very well! I keep mine in a zip lock bag and simply thaw one out when I have a craving for one. Then I just slice it in half and toast it. Hope you enjoy!

    1. Hi Nancy,

      They don’t taste eggy. I would recommend adding an additional tablespoon of the everything bagel seasoning to the dough to be sure no egg flavor comes through. xo

  2. Do you usually use all almond flour or do you use the combo of almond flour and tapioca starch? My donut pans are arriving today from Amazon and I’m anxious to try these. ?

    1. Hi JoAn! I use all almond flour and the bagels turn out great! If you aren’t following a keto diet and are going for a fluffier bagel that’s closer in texture to a regular bagel, you can replace some of the almond flour with tapioca for sure! Hope you enjoy!

  3. Delicious. Just made them today. Thank you for sharing your recipe ?
    I’m certain I will make them again.
    What’s the breast way to store these just for a day or 2? Is room temp ok? Tightly or loosely sealed. Sorry to be a pest but gluten free stuff is so tricky sometimes.I
    Again, many thanks!

  4. I just made these! The house smells amazing, the recipe (once I acquired the ingredients) went together quickly, the silicone doughnut pans are perfect and easy (no prep!). I think making them in a muffin tin would work as well.
    NEXT MORNING: Ok, my husband just ate his first one (he is the Keto diet guy) and while it’s nothing like a bagel (chewy, bready) he says it’s savory and filling and definitely would satisfy the bagel urge. So SUCCESS!

    1. Hi Janice,

      I haven’t tested the recipe without eggs yet, so I can’t be too sure. My guess is it would work, but that the bagels will turn out pretty dense. If you’re okay with that, I’d either go with Bob’s Red Mill’s egg replacer or flax eggs 😀 Let me know how it turns out! Hope you enjoy!! xo

  5. Do you need a bagel mold? Is the batter sticky? Could I mold into a bagel shape and cook on a cookie sheet?

    1. Hi Kate! The batter is pretty sticky, so I don’t think it would work well if you tried molding them into bagel shapes. You could use a muffin pan, though!

  6. Just made these with mods! Substituted 1/2 cup of almond flour with Tapioca as suggested and since we didn’t want all the seeds, made these with cinnamon!
    Smells great and taste great!

  7. Do we have to use the everything seasoning? If I wanted to make some plain bagels what would I substitute that with?

    1. Hi Lauren!

      You could just omit the Everything seasoning, or you can sprinkle the bagels with coarse sea salt if you like your bagels with a little salt 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

  8. Dear Julia, I am so happy to see this recipe, but until I can get that Navy Blue glittered silicone muffin tin, do you know if it’s possible for me to use an 8X4-inch loaf pan? Have you ever tried it> If not I will take the plunge. :).
    I am so excited, Thanks and take care…

    1. Hi Laura! I love the idea of turning this into a loaf of bread! I haven’t tried it myself, but I imagine it will work great. I would think baking it at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes would work. Let me know how it turns out! 🙂

  9. I made these in a regular size muffin pan (yield 12 little muffins). They are a perfect snack or meal replacement with a good spread. Tasty plain, too! I made them for my low carb paleo version of the Dash diet.
