Low Carb Everything Bagels – Almond Flour Fathead Dough Recipe

All the delicious flavors of an everything bagel – sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic flakes, onion flakes and pretzel salt baked up in this low-carb, keto, Gluten-Free recipe that is sure to satisfy!

Every morning I drop my son off to daycare and head to work passing by one of my favorite bagel cafe’s.  Oh how I long for the days when I would stop in and grab an everything bagel with chive cream cheese.  The first bite was loaded with all that topping goodness!  It was a burst of flavor and chive cream cheese –  I mean who doesn’t love a bagel?! Right!   I couldn’t take it – the bagel craving was intense so it was time to find low carb everything bagel recipe and make it happen.  Not to say I can’t have a good old-fashioned bagel but my “cheat day” wasn’t today and I couldn’t wait!

Plump everything bagel

The buzz in the Keto community for a bread alternative is “fathead dough”.

This is a simple low-carb everything bagel recipe consisting of 4 main ingredients: almond flour, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and eggs.  You can also find this recipe using coconut flour, which has a slightly sweeter taste.  I plan on trying that recipe next to see which flavor profile I prefer.  Which flour do you prefer, drop a comment and let me know? 

The recipe itself is pretty straight forward. Melt, mix, form bagel holes or use a silicone bagel pan and bake.

I don’t have a special bagel pan so I decided to do it freehand.  I think the pictures say it all! These bagels baked up plump and perfect, so no need to go and buy any extra molds. Unnecessary if you ask me.

I’ve added a few notes to the recipe below so make sure and read each step.  I hope your bagels bake up plump and fat like these beauties!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour Anthony's Almond Flour
  • 2 cups shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 4-5 tbsp Trader Joes - Everything But The Bagel Seasoning
Instructions
  1. Cube the cream cheese and add it to a microwave safe bowl along with the mozzarella cheese.  Cook using 30 second durations until melted. 

  2. Add melted mixture to a food processor or bowl if mixing by hand - add 1 egg and pulse/mix until combined. 

  3. Add almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder and onion powder and pulse/mix until combined.  Dough will be very sticky at this point. 

  4. Preset over to 400º - place dough in the freezer while the oven is warming up. This allows the dough to cool and set, will make for easier handling.

  5. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or if using a mold - spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Remove your dough from the freezer.  Spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray for easier handling.

  6. To make a good size bagel you'll want to take a decent amount of dough - the size of a baseball or slightly a tad more.  Portion your dough into equal amounts - this will yield roughly 6 bagels. 

  7. Place each dough ball onto the cookie sheet and gently press down in the center to make a ring.  Stretch and shape the center and around the sides to form a bagel shape. 

  8. Take the remaining egg and beat - brush the top of each bagel with the egg wash and sprinkle a generous amount of Trader Joes - Everything But The Bagel Seasoning.

  9. Bake in the center rack for roughly 15-16 minutes or until golden brown.
