Keto Everything Bagels


Serves 5-6 bagels
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1Ž2 teaspoon beef gelatin (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 1Ž2 teaspoons psyllium husk powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1 1Ž2 cups shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1Ž2 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • McEvoy Ranch Rosemary Olive Oil or our Basil Olive Oil (NOTE: use the same oil throughout the recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon of Everything Bagel Seasoning
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 (o) (put the degree symbol here)F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, add the instant yeast, coconut sugar, and warm water and stir well.  Set aside in warm location and cover with a towel, about 5-10 minutes.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix together the beef gelatin and boiling water (must be boiling).
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, and baking powder and set aside.
  5. In a large microwave-safe bowl (recommend shallow bowl for better melting), add mozzarella and cream cheese.  Microwave for 60 seconds and then give it a stir, and continuing microwaving in 20-second increments until the cheese is fully melted and combined when stirred. This will vary depending on the strength of your microwave. Cheese should be fully melted, but not brown/burned on the edges.
  6. Stir the yeast mixture and dissolved gelatin into the melted cheese until fully combined, then stir in the beaten egg. Stir in the almond flour 1Ž4 cup at a time until it is fully combined.
  7. Oil your hands with McEvoy Ranch Rosemary or Basil olive oil and knead the dough a couple of times until it comes together as a ball.
  8. Divide the dough into six equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope and twist and attach the ends to make a bagel shape with a hole in the middle.  The opening in the center should be around 1 1Ž2 “ in diameter.
  9. Arrange the bagels on the prepared baking tray. Lightly brush the tops with McEvoy Ranch Rosemary or Basil olive oil and sprinkle on the Everything Bagel Seasoning.
  10. Bake until golden on the bottom, about 15 minutes (depending on your oven). Make sure that the oven is fully heated and don’t open the door until done.


Tip: The bagels will not rise as tall as regular bagels, but are still delicious when thinly sliced and toasted (recommend broil or toaster oven over a toaster) and smeared with your favorite cream cheese or avocado! Enjoy!
