26 Best-Ever Keto Bagels Recipes

I like to think of bagels as the original breakfast on the go. Did you know some bagel recipes are over several centuries old? Bakers used the bagel’s iconic hole to help cool and display their wares to hungry crowds.

Unfortunately, today’s bagels, especially those you find in the grocery store, can be chock full of unhealthy ingredients. So, to get my beloved bite of bagel, I often find it much easier to make them at home!

I used to be so intimidated by the idea of making bagels, but now it’s one of my favorite things to do! So many healthy ingredients can be added to a bagel recipe to boost its protein or even veggie content (that’s right- you can eat a bagel and get your veggies too!).

That’s why I’ve put together this list of Keto bagel recipes. Once I started making my own ketogenic bagels, I couldn’t believe how many folks out there were doing the same thing! From bagels made with cauliflower rice to chia seed bagels to even a mozzarella cheese bagel, you’ll become your own best bagel baker in no time with these great recipes!

Low carb bagels are real, we promise. Just check out this video:

Here are just a few of the Keto Bagels Recipes we’ve included:

If you are finding it difficult to get enough roughage and fiber in your keto diet then bagels like these could really help. They are so tasty and covered in seeds, making them a great fiber source and a delicious way to eat healthier at breakfast time or for lunch, stuffed with deli meats or smoked salmon. If you find these a bit of a challenge to form, you can press the dough into a donut tin!

Here is the perfect bagel recipe if you need to keep things nut and grain free, and this keto recipe also gives dairy free directions too. These are dense but springy in the middle, making a great platform for the fillings of your choice. If you like your bagels a bit sweeter, you can follow the recommendations listed in the ingredients, or you can leave them savory to serve with cold meats and cheese.

Low Carb Gluten Free Onion “Bagels”

Ingredients: flaxseed meal, coconut flour, baking powder, eggs, dried minced onion.

When you have family members who can’t tolerate gluten it can be so handy to find recipes like this one. The bagels are gluten-free but full of flavor and have the texture we would all want from this breakfast bread. These ones are flavored with onion and you can vary this a bit by adding a little garlic powder which can be really tasty served with cream cheese!

Easy Low-carb Bagels

– Keto Diet Blog

Ingredients: almond butter, eggs, coconut milk or cream, water, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt.

When you are making keto alternatives to baked goods, it is virtually impossible to replicate the actual flavor and texture of the full carb ones you might have had before, but recipes like this one can give you a very close copy, yet still keeping the carbohydrates to a lower level. These bagels are firm on the outside and soft in the middle and are just crying out to be stuffed with salad for lunch!

Blueberry Protein Bagels

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: Jay Robb vanilla egg white protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, Celtic sea salt, eggs, coconut oil, blueberry extract.

When you are baking goods on a ketogenic diet and need to keep things gluten-free, you can get the same chewy texture if you use guar gum to replace the gluten, otherwise, the goods can be a bit crumbly and dry. If you don’t have blueberry extract you can flavor these with any spice you have – cinnamon and ground ginger work really well here.

Dairy-free Keto Bagels

– My Pcos Kitchen

Ingredients: water, egg yolk, almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, baking soda, Himalayan salt, roasted garlic, roasted onion, egg whites, eggs, refined coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk, apple cider vinegar, black poppy seeds, sesame seeds.

This is a fantastic keto bagel recipe as it is not only dairy free but gluten-free as well! Bagels can be very portable, so you could use them in place of sandwiches for school lunchboxes or to take to work with you and they can be filled with sweet or savory ingredients. One of the best things with this recipe is that the bagels can be frozen, then defrosted and microwaved or toasted, so you can batch-cook these.

Paleo Bagels

– Elana’s Pantry

Ingredients: almond flour, golden flaxmeal, coconut flour, baking soda, Celtic sea salt, eggs, apple cider vinegar.

Here is another straightforward bagel recipe that you can use for a low carb and high fiber breakfast if you fill them with scrambled eggs or deli ham and salad. It just shows that low carb doesn’t have to be boring – use these delicious bagels as platforms for whatever fillings you like! These bagels are suitable for freezing and can be handy if friends drop by for lunch.

I love that these are made with almond flour – my go-to substitute for wheat flour.  Registered Dietitian Ryan Raman, RD notes that almonds is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. “Almond flour is incredibly nutritious. It’s particularly rich in vitamin E and magnesium, two important nutrients for health.”

French Toast Bagel

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: Jay Robb vanilla egg white protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, Celtic sea salt, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon.

In this keto recipe the bagels are sweetened and full of cinnamon and taste amazing spread with some keto jam for breakfast, but if you prefer a savory taste you can swap the sweet ingredients for poppy seeds or sesame seeds and serve them with your choice of meat or smoked salmon for an impressive lunch for friends and family.

Bacon Paleo Bagel

– Paleo Porn

Ingredients: almond flour, eggs, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, lard, mace, cloves, bacon, baking fat.

If you are looking for a filling and tasty paleo breakfast dish, perhaps because you need a little boost in the morning to keep you going through till lunch, these bacon bagels could be the answer! They have bacon slices inside and would be amazing served warm with extra bacon and eggs for a hearty start to the day, but I find they are delicious spread with a low carb spread and eaten cold for lunch.

Low Carb & Gluten Free Bagels

– Divalicious Recipes

Ingredients: ground flax seed, coconut flour, baking powder, eggs.

This is quite a simple recipe but the results are great! Not only are the bagels delicious, they are low in carbs, gluten-free and also quite low in calories, so you could enjoy one of these even on a weight loss diet. These can be cooked in a bagel tin, a donut tin or even turned into mini bagels which are ideal for kids who don’t eat a lot at breakfast.

Cauliflower Low Carb Bagels

– Bites of Wellness

Ingredients: frozen riced cauliflower, egg whites, ground flax, coconut flour, sea salt, garlic powder.

What an amazing recipe this is, because not only does it give you low carb bagels but it increases your intake of veggies since they are made with riced cauliflower. The cauliflower does not add any flavor, so these can be served either savory or sweet, depending on your taste. Why not try this recipe next time you are missing bagels and load them with bacon and eggs for Sunday brunch!

High Protein WYBM Bagel

– The Untamed Gypsy

Ingredients: chia seeds, almonds, water, salt, egg protein powder, psyllium flakes, eggs.

This recipe is another great example of how chia seeds can be used in baked goods to add fiber and help hold the mixture together, giving you a really spongy but tasty bagel. These are high in protein and fiber but low in carbs, and are completely dairy free. This makes them perfect for breakfast or as an alternative to bread for sandwiches in lunchboxes or at picnics.
