Keto Bagel Recipe

Looking for something tasty to spread some creamy filling on? There are possibilities to find meaning for our filling on a low carb diet too!

Being in the superhero business is a tough one. With great power does not only come great responsibility but amplified problems too. Sure enough, most superheroes don’t need to decide what they want to be when they grow up, they don’t stress in the traffic after a wrong turn or do the shopping but they must make their own decisions scrutinized by public’s eye.

As for us picking the fights is worth to fight for, is important to save our sanity, it is crucial for a superhero too. Picking the right supervillain to be their archenemy is a fundamental element in their career that will complete their whole existence.

As an arch wouldn’t exist without its two legs, they couldn’t either. Being on the two opposite end, they complete each other creating meaning to their existence.

Although it’s very fascinating to study the psychological motives of superheroes or villains, these feelings are embedded into our everyday souls too. We strive for balance in everything we do too.

Unfortunately, balance is a rather vague term and one can only measure the world with it based on personal experiences. The more we chart out to discover unknown territories, the wider our ability to understand the world around us will grow.

For example, if we only eat at home, we may very well be pleased with the amount of salt we use during preparing our meals until we are forced to go to a family dinner and faced with the excruciatingly long seconds we need to shake the salt dispenser to force a slight smile onto our face.

A lack of an arch enemy makes a story exactly as unbearable as our meal without our salt, yet most of the time we fail to recognize such crucial ingredients, let alone grateful for them. The very meaning of our own existence hangs on the thread that balances life, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

We wouldn’t think much of bread or to stick to the point bagels either, but we make so much fuss about what’s on or in them. They seem so insignificant that it is not even worth advertising them but once they are gone, we feel like a piece is carved out from us with a blunt Wusthof.

We get desperate pretty soon which spawns many less than perfect solutions. Some think that punching holes in anything edible is enough to solve the problem. But that’s like dressing up as Joker for Halloween in a one size fits all costume.

We need more then that to become or even just imitate something that exists at such altitude. We must get the gist of its entire existence and pour it over our reality to get close by it.

This is why so many old recipes translated to keto, fall flat in the low carb world. We fail to get the gist of the original recipe.  (And of course, we leave out crucial ingredients that create the whole structure of some dishes, plus we miss the reward that our brain issues for any bite of carbs we put into our mouth.)

But as no supervillain can exist without a superhero, no filling can exist without something to fill it into without losing its whole meaning. As villains complete the heroes by enhancing each other difference,s making them one whole piece, so buns need to wrap the juicy creaminess of a filling to make a perfect sandwich.

Trying something new is never an easy journey but trying to bring the essence of left behind favorites onto a new adventure is even harder. However, the road is potted with the deep holes of disappointments when bite after bite old memories flew back to us, we know we have reached our goal, we have reached harmony.Keto bagel

 

Ingredients:

  • 6oz / 120g Mozzarella
  • 2 oz / 50g Cream cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1½ cup / 150g Almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon / 9g Baking powder
  • Optional:
    • Sesame seed
    • Chia seed
    • Poppy seed

 

How to make Keto bagel:

    1. Measure the mozzarella and the cream cheese into a microwave safe dish and put it into the microwave oven for 45 seconds on the highest power.
    2. While the cheese is melting measure the Almond flour and baking powder into a bowl with the egg.
    3. Mix them well together.
    4. When the microwave oven finishes with the first 45 second of warming,  take the cheese out and give it a stir.
    5. Put it back for another 45 seconds then stir until it gets a smooth consistency.
    6. Mix the cheese with the almond dough.
    7. This might be a bit hard, especially if the cheese cools off too quickly. If necessary put the whole batch into the microwave for a couple of seconds to warm it up again.
    8. Use a non-stick baking tray or parchment paper whichever is prefered.
    9. Apply oil onto our hands.
    10. Form the dough. Place them apart as they will grow about 1½ times their original size.
    11. Poke the holes from one side and widen it from the other.
    12. Sprinkle the optional sesame, chia or poppy seeds on top or just leave them as they are.
    13. Put them into a preheated 350°F / 180°C oven for 20 minutes.
    14. Let them cool down a bit before serving.

Enjoy!

 

F.A.Q.

Are bagels OK on keto diet?

Normal bagels are made of wheat flour thus making them unsuitable for a keto diet. Luckily, these bagels are made with almond flour which is allowed on any low carb diet, including keto.

What are keto bagels made of?

The dough is made of almond flour, eggs and cheese raised with baking powder. As the chewiness is somewhat replicated by the added cheese, the end result is remarkably similar to the original bagel, although there are differences due to the lack of gluten in almond flour.
