Almond Flour Makes the Difference!

What a difference my second attempt at Keto Bagels using Fathead dough was since I used Almond flour, which I didn’t have the first time!

I actually found a cheaper brand of almond flour at Aldi! A 1lb bag from Baker’s Corner, 6 carbs (per 1/4 cup), gluten free, cost $6.99!

On my first attempt seen here, I used flax and egg to sub for the absence of almond flour. I kept the rest of the recipe the same, yet they came out tiny but still tasty.

This time, I measured everything carefully, used almond flour, egg, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, baking powder and followed the directions to the letter.

BOOM! These bagels came out of the oven beautifully browned, large, dense, almost like ciabatta instead of a bagel. The cheese also lends a sourdough like flavor.

If you are following a Keto diet (or lifestyle like me) and you’ve been missing bread, these bagels are just the ticket! I only eat a half at a time and I’m totally full.

Today I paired an egg cup with half a bagel, slathered in grass-fed butter and some sugar-free strawberry preserves I made on Monday. YUM!!

This time I used the recipe from Fit Mom Journey and maybe that made a difference too. Now, I don’t know if the macros are for a whole or half bagel but they are this:

292 calories, 25g of fat, 4.5 net carbs, 14 g of protein.

Let me know if you have given these a try or even would! Do you indulge in bread once in a while as long as you make it yourself?

I have other go-to breads as well, like 90 second Keto bread and more. Check out my Pinterest page for other great ideas!
