These homemade gluten free low carb garlic coconut flour bagels are much cheaper than buying pre-made ones. They taste delicious too!
It’s been over a week since I’ve posted on the blog. The main reason is that I just haven’t been eating much food while working towards a weight loss goal. I am happy to say that I exceeded my goal.
I managed to lose an average of two pounds a week by making a drastic cut in calories and exercising thirty minutes a day. Now that I am down to where I want to be, I’m slowing adding more calories to enter into maintenance.
I could stand to lose a couple more pounds. But anything more than that could be too much too fast. I’m happy with my weight now, but I’ve got to keep an eye on my food intake.
I have had a serious craving for bread lately. There’s a guy at work who is always toasting a bagel in the toaster by my desk each morning. That’s why I made up some low carb coconut flour bagels.
While downing my morning low carb protein bar or shake, all I could think of was sinking my teeth into a warm buttered garlic bagel.
I’m doing really well with my weight loss plan. Giving in to my cravings will only make things worse. And, I don’t want to gain back the pounds I worked so hard to shed.
This garlic bagel recipe is really just a quick bread baked into a donut shape. I think adding in some psyllium husks may give the bagels more of the traditional texture.
I was really surprised at how well these low carb bagels came out since it was a cinch to throw them together on the spur of moment. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
This garlic bagel tastes best when it’s toasted because it get’s rid of the cake like texture. The butter in the batter gives them a nice buttery taste as well. So, you won’t have to add any additional butter or cream cheese.
If you don’t have a donut pan, you may want to try the coconut flour fat head dough recipe instead. It’s a thicker dough that holds it shape while baking.
