These homemade garlic coconut flour keto bagels without cheese are super easy to make. Once you give them a try, they are sure to become a regular breakfast item on your low-carb menu.
I've had a serious craving for bread lately. But I wanted something a little more crusty than my keto cheese bread.
Although I have a great recipe for fathead bagels made with coconut flour, I wanted to try keto bagels with no cheese. That's why this recipe is made without it.
I was really surprised at how well these quick bread bagels came out. It was a cinch to throw them together on the spur of moment with ingredients I had on hand.
You only need five simple ingredients plus salt to make the bagels. To give them a nice shape, you will need to use a large donut pan.
Because there's no cheese needed, the recipe can easily be modified to be dairy-free. All you have to do is use a non-dairy substitute for butter. My favorite alternative is butter-flavored coconut oil.
The full ingredient list, including amounts used, is available in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Making Keto Bagels Without Cheese
There's only a few simple steps needed to make this easy quick bread recipe. After making the batter, it's piped into donut molds and then baked until brown.
- Combine eggs, butter, salt, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl.
- Mix coconut flour with baking powder and xanthan gum (if using) then add to egg mix.
- Stir the coconut flour mixture into the wet mix until there are no lumps. Then pipe or spoon into a greased donut pan.
- Bake until browned on top and set in the middle. Cool slightly then remove from pan and allow to cool completely on a rack.
This garlic keto bagel coconut flour 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.
If you don't like garlic, you can replace that with onion powder or some finely chopped onions. Or, you can add in some nutritional yeast instead. A little everything but the bagel seasoning is great to sprinkle on top as well.
The recipe can be easily be modified to make any flavor you want. In fact, I've used the base recipe to make french toast bagels.
Serving and Storing
These garlic bagels taste best when toasted because it gets 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.
You can leave them at room temperature for a couple days. But I recommend placing them in foil or loose fitting container in the refrigerator.
The baked keto bagels can be stored for at least a week in the refrigerator or up to three months in the freezer. If you want to toast them straight from the freezer, be sure to slice them first.
