Keto Bagel Recipe
If you’ve ever been around someone training for a marathon, you’ve probably witnessed them pounding carbs. Lots of carbs.
And if you’re like me, you probably want to rip the bagels right out of their hands and enjoy them yourself.
I’ve got a better idea. Leave your runner friends alone and get your fix with this Keto bagel recipe.
Taking the Carbs Out of Bagels
When I think of carbs, I think of bagels. I mean, they don’t give out salad at the end of a race.
So how in the world do you make a bagel Keto? Is it really a bagel if it doesn’t have all those carbs?
Yes, and it’s even better.
You get a bagel back in your possession, and your body doesn’t get the shock of some 48 grams of carbs.
I did have to make some changes, however. Instead of all-purpose white flour, I used a mix of almond and coconut flour.
I blend these two flours together all the time for Keto recipes. The almond flour is a great source of fat, with negligible carbs.
Coconut flour offers a lighter texture. You’ll notice there is much less coconut flour than almond flour used in this recipe.
That’s because coconut flour soaks up liquid like a sponge and expands. A little goes a long way.

Also present in these bagels in a lesser amount is psyllium husk powder. In addition to being a great source of fiber, psyllium husk helps to glue everything together like gluten does.
I added baking powder and a bit of vinegar to help these bagels rise. Garlic powder and ghee add flavor.
As a finale, I brush the bagels with olive oil and cover them with sesame seeds. It’s perfection!

Missing a good bagel in your Keto lifestyle? Now you don’t have to!
- Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C).
- Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, garlic powder and salt in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and vinegar together. Slowly drizzle in the melted ghee (which should not be piping hot) and whisk in well.
- Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and use a wooden spoon to combine well. Leave to sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Divide the mixture into 4 equal-sized portions. Using your hands, shape the mixture into a round shape and place onto a tray lined with parchment paper. Use a small spoon or apple corer to make the center hole.
- Brush the tops with olive oil and scatter over the sesame seeds. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Allow to cool slightly before enjoying!
