Keto Blueberry Bagel – Chewy Yeasty and Delicious!
If you are looking for a keto blueberry bagel that easy, delicious and perfectly chewy then you have found it.
As a former HUGE bagel fan, it was important to me to make an amazing low carb bagel recipe and these are just perfect. I am sure you will love them fresh or toasted and topped with your favourite bagel toppings.
Keto Blueberry Bagel Ingredients
The ingredients list for the keto bagels is filled only with ingredients you will recognise.
Instant yeast does not only help the bagels rise, but it really adds an authentic flavour to a keto bagel dough.
Inulin is a prebiotic used to activate the yeast (check the video link). If you do not have inulin you can substitute sugar or honey. The yeast will consume the carbs in the sugar or honey. Sweeteners like erythritol or monk fruit are not suitable to activate yeast.
A double acting gluten free baking powder that is aluminium free is also perfect for a recipe for keto bagels. Because a keto bagel recipe lacks gluten and carbs the combination of the baking powder and yeast really do help the dough to rise.
Frozen berries – I use frozen berries because I prefer whole blueberries in my bagels. If you use fresh ones, they will smoosh a bit and if you mix them in, you will have a delightful blue bagel.
When the Blueberries are added to the mix you can see the texture is changed slightly Shaping and Baking Bagel FAQs
Once the dough is mixed it should be soft and not sticky. Knead the bagel dough into a smooth ball and separate into 8 equal pieces.
Using a cupped hand over the ball roll until the dough forms a smooth ball. Using your middle finger and thumb create a small hole in the centre of the dough and shape the bagels.
Cover the bagels with a silicone mat or towel and leave in a warm place to rise. Preheat the oven when you see the bagels have puffed and risen.
Baste with a little egg yolk and sprinkle with a little gold sweetener and flaked almonds. Bake until lightly golden and cooked through.
Can Keto Bagels be frozen? Yes, they can. I find it better to pre-split the bagel so you can defrost easier or toast from frozen.
Can I make a nut free low carb bagel? I use lupin flour or golden flax meal in place of the almond meal.
Can I use almond flour instead of almond meal? Of course!
Can I freeze the dough and roll later? I would suggest to roll into the bagels first and then freeze them. Keto fathead bagel dough is best shaped while it is still warm and easy to shape.
Can I make these as coconut flour keto bagels? Use only 1/4 cup of coconut flour with this recipe.
Can I make keto bagels in the Thermomix? Absolutely!
