Keto Flours for Bagels

In this recipe, I use a combination of almond flour, unflavored low carb protein powder and inulin powder. The protein powder helps to puff up these low carb bagels, while the inulin powder helps keep this recipe low carb and provides a chewy texture.

There are some substitutions you can do if you don’t want to use some of the ingredients. You can omit the inulin powder and use 1 1/2 cups almond flour. If you don’t want to use all almond flour, you can use 1/2 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup of lupin flour. This also helps to keep the net carbs low; however, the lupin flour gives the keto bagels a yellow coloring.

The best part about this recipe is that it doesn’t contain fathead dough, mozzarella cheese or cream cheese! Many keto bagel recipes use fathead dough or some version of it which makes the recipe loaded with cheese and dairy plus it might have a cheesy flavor.

  1. Delicious 😋! I followed most the whole recipe. I had to exclude the insulin becase I had none but used the almond flour substitute an added the extra 2 table of water. I also added in the leftover egg yolk because I didn’t want to waste it! What a delightful treat! I served Hubby’s with butter and jam and mine, butter alone. I will make them often! Oh, I doubled the recipe. Made 3 with poppy seeds, the rest with parmesan cheese on top

  2. I made these tonight but they really didn’t rise and are small. I believe you may have a typo in the keto flours section. You say that instead of 1.5 cups almond flour (if not using inulin) you can use ½ cup almond flour and ¼ cup lupin flour. Which I did but after cooking them and realizing something was wrong I did a little research and I think that it should be 1 cup almond flour and ¼ cup lupin flour.

  3. Amazing! They more than doubled the size. The crust turned out beautiful 😍 💕 I made 2 kinds everything bagel and sesame . Thank you🥰😃😃😃
