Low Carb Bagels


  • ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 egg whites, separated
  • 1 ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt

Optional Toppings: everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic flakes, dried onion flakes, cinnamon sugar, sea salt, etc.


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Place parchment paper or a silpat on a baking sheet. If using parchment paper, spray with oil to avoid sticking. If you have a donut pan, spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk one egg white until frothy (about 2-3 minutes), fold in Greek yogurt until fully combined.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well. Add the yogurt and egg white mixture and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined.
  4. Lightly dust a parchment lined work surface with coconut or almond flour and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until dough is tacky, but not sticky, about 15 turns. If it seems to be too sticky, add more coconut or almond flour.
  5. Divide into 4 equal balls. Poke a hole in the center of each ball and then stretch it slightly to make form the dough into a bagel. Place bagels on prepared baking sheet or in donut pan molds.
  6. Top each bagel with egg white wash and sprinkle with seasoning of your choice. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting. Keep bagels refrigerated.
