Bagels. It’s one of the most common breakfast options around. It’s flexible. It’s easy to eat. It’s easy to prepare. And depending on your preferences, you can make it the way you want to. Just like pancakes, you can prepare them with whichever ingredient you wish. But unlike pancakes, you can store them for a couple of days, and they still eat and taste good.

I’m not sure about you but I love pairing them with cream cheese every time. I’d be a really happy man if I have them both to kickstart a busy day. Oh wait, I totally forgot about coffee. If you’re wondering why coffee is a good idea for a Keto diet, check this post I wrote earlier.

Bagels Made with Fathead Dough
If fathead dough is any familiar, you could be thinking of the fathead dough pizzas I tried awhile back. Now, it’s in your bagel too. What’s great about fathead dough is that it’s a low-carb dough made up of almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and egg.
I’m a big fan of almond flour. Not just because of its taste, but also because it’s such a good replacement for the typical plain flour/ all-purpose flour that everyone is used to.

Soft and Chewy Keto Bagels (Gluten-free)
This is probably my favourite one on the list. Because it fits many criteria, and so suitable to many different diets. There’s no need to change anything in this recipe to suit your dietary needs because it probably already fits.
True to its word, the bagels I made using this recipe were very chewy, fragrant, and I actually ended up making a bagelwich topped with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and some olive oil. Trust me, it’s really good.

Keto Bagels with Almond Flour
I was supposed to try this recipe out last week. I even scheduled a day to prepare these bagels but because the previous bagels were so great, I couldn’t resist making them again. But this recipe is on the list because it uses almond flour as well. And it’s a great alternative if you have leftovers from the previous recipe.
And it also contains everything you need for a low-carb, high-fat, high protein diet!

Keto Fathead Bagels with Coconut Flour Dough
Another fathead dough here but this one is made with coconut flour. And that’s something you don’t see often. Coconut oil is one of the most valuable resource to a healthy body and not a lot of people realise it. Thus, when I saw this recipe using coconut flour, I know I have to give it a shot too. And it certainly didn’t disappoint!

Low Carb Keto Bagels
Have you seen a bagel that’s anymore golden and luxurious than these? Bring these to your colleagues and they’ll love you for it. They not only look great, they also taste great. They’re proof that healthy foods can also look and taste yummy.
But what’s most important is that they’re extremely easy to get up and going. You can store them for a couple of days and they still will taste just as good.

Not exactly a bagel per se but I wouldn’t let it stop me from disqualifying this recipe from the list. I mean, it still looks and tastes great. In fact, this “bagel” (or chaffle) is actually made with a waffle iron. If you don’t already have a waffle iron, I gotta convince you that it’s a great investment in the house. Especially if you have kids because making waffles/chaffles is such a great bonding moment with them and it’s extremely easy to get started quickly.

Low-Carb Keto Bagels (Dairy-free)
How about one that doesn’t include any form of dairy in it? This would be suitable for anyone who’s lactose-intolerant. I was a little apprehensive about this recipe because I’ve always paired my bagels with some form of dairy (either in the recipe or as a spread).
But I have to say this did change my perspectives on dairy-free bagels. They’re not only tasty, but they’re quite refreshing because it includes some zesty lemon juices in it. Oh and I bet you’ve never heard of coconut butter before.

If you noticed, there’s not a lot of variations with each bagel recipes. But it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to change up the flavour and taste of the bagel. These recipes utilises different flour (almond, coconut, etc) in each recipe to suit different dietary needs.
