Each bagel has about 4g net carbs. 
Original recipe used 2 tablespoons baking powder but the recipe changed to use only 2 teaspoons due to taste. If using baking SODA, you will need to use less as the amount of soda used is about a third of the amount of powder used. 
Reader mentions the following add-ins to help prevent the bagels from flattening during baking and add flavor: Add a tablespoon almond flour… A tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes… Seasonings of garlic and onion powder and about a teaspoon of Xanthan powder…. 
Another reader notes that a hard tack consistency can be achieved by putting them in a low temp oven (210°F) for 4-5 hours after the bagels cool.
