Low Carb Gluten Free Bagels

WE GET IT. Breakfast is the most wonderful part of the day. Because we are total food hounds, we are constantly looking for new, delicious breakfast options while ensuring we start our days off in a healthy way. Sometimes we travel for work, and were in New York last week for a few meetings, and consequently felt inspired to make our own bagel recipe to have a taste of NYC at home. These low carb, gluten free bagels will become a staple to your breakfast menus. AND they are protein packed. They also look cute on Instagram. Of courses, they also are delicious. What more could you ask for? Low Carb Gluten Free Bagels will be your new go-to breakfast prep!

We love Trader Joe’s for many, MANY reasons. Have you ever tried to Cauliflower Gnocchi? If the answer is yes, you are our kind of person. Speaking of which- we have an entire recipe just to spice it up, our Lemon Parmesean Cauliflower Gnocchi! We always have a few bags in our freezer, and also have a little jar of the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning on hand, too! We use that seasoning for these Low Carb Gluten Free Bagels in order to make an Everything Bagel, but you can honestly use this recipe for many other bagel types.

If you want a NYC bagel recommendation…

Since we frequent New York fairly often, we always go to a little bagel spot call Best Bagel and they are not kidding with that name. Oh my gosh the bagels are absolutely incredible, and they have some of the best gluten free bagels we have ever had. That NY city water is no joke, because it really makes the bagels magical. We were inspired to try our own, and love topping these with cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers!

    Really starting to learn the differences almond flour fineness matters in these recipes lol mine 100% will not turn out like these. But they’re in the oven so let’s see if they taste ok haha

    • YAY! How did you like them?! It definitely does make a huge difference… We usually get ours from Costco and have found that one to be a really good consistency when baking
