    9:30 at night, i’m googling for breakfast ideas, and I land on a site that links to this. 10:30pm, and these bagels are done. It really took me about 30 mins, but I was actually making bacon at the time too.

    Anyways, this. was. amazing. Wife loved it, I loved it. Only had the one so far, but it was perfect. I didn’t have everything spice available, so I just made these plain (but will try something else later), but they were still perfect. 10 / 5 stars.


      I’m happy to hear the bagels worked out for you, Chris. I’m sure you will like them much better with the everything bagel seasoning!


    These are aMaaaazing!! Tried them for the first time last week, very easy to make! So delicous!! They have become our weekly meal prep for the week! We make two batches and freeE them and they warm up wonderfully!! Thank you for the recipe! Well be definitley Trying your other recipes!!


    all the reCIpes you post are such amazing. i just love all of them. thanks for sharing this with all of us… i’m from brazil… the only challenge that i have is to convert cups, tbsp, tsp, etc… it would be great if the measures could come either in us metrics or internationl metrics system.. it would make my life way easier… anyway, thank you for sharing all these recipes…


    You SaVEd me! I am a carb addict and I am really trying to limit my daily carb intake. I have these as my afternoon snack. These are so so good!!

    Has anyone tried making these sweet? My kids are not digging the everything spices….i sure do! But it made me think that i could probably make them a sweet bagel. tips? ideas? advice?

    how do you store them…. ziploc bag on counter? Fridge?


    These keto bagels turned out amazing!!!! I will make them again for sure.


    When I tried these they weren’t as thick as the ones in the picture. They flattened out and barely had a hole in the middle. Any Tips? Why did they flatten out?


      I’m not sure why they flatten out but it could be due to the brand of almond flour. I would add another tablespoon of almond flour next time and see how they turn out.


    I made these and when i plugged in my ingredients to my fitness pal i got the carbs as 2.5g per bagel. Is your NUTRITIONAL label with added cream cheese after?


      12g in cheese
      42 in almond flour (6 per 1/4 cup)
      2.5 in 2oz cream cheese
      56.5g/8 bagels = 7g

      Sesame seeds have 2.1g per tbsp so I’m guessing the small amount of EVERYTHING seasoning on top is the .5g

      We made them this weekend, they are amazing!


    How do you store them?

    Hi! I love the ease of your recipe for these bagels but I have a tree nut allergy and can’t use almond flour. Is there a way to make these with another kind of flour?


      I’m sorry I have not tried the recipe with any other type of flour but you might be able to use coconut flour.
