As a former bagel lover, I had to create an amazing keto bagel. This recipe is incredibly easy and tasty.

I wanted a low carb bagel made with yeast. Yeast imparts so much flavour to the bagel as well as giving it rise. Check out my tips below for making these tasty fathead bagels with a bit of a difference.

Keto Bagel Ingredients

To make your own keto bagels at home you only need the usual keto pantry essentials.

The main ingredients to get right are

  • Instant yeast is available from the supermarket. Yep, it is just that powdery stuff that is on the baking aisle at the supermarket.
  • Inulin is used to activate the yeast (check the video link). It is a prebiotic available from health food shops or online. Use the link within the recipe to order online. Sugar alcohols do not activate yeast. If you do not have inulin you will need to use sugar or honey to activate the yeast. The carbs will be consumed by the yeast.
  • The baking powder used is a double acting gluten free and aluminium free brand. Double acting baking powder begins forcing the rise of baked goods when liquid is added and when baking.
  • For a nut free bagel substitute flaxmeal or lupin flour.

How to make Keto Bagels at Home

Trust me these keto bagels are so easy to make at home. As per usual for the recipe I have included how to make these by hand with conventional methods. I use a microwave, but you can use a saucepan over low heat to achieve the same results.

I have included a Thermomix keto bagel recipe. You may recognise it from the Cookidoo Low Carb collection because I wrote the recipe. My recipe uses inulin for the yeast activator as sugar alcohols including monkfruit do not activate yeast. You can see my video comparison here.

The Thermomix keto bagel method is my favourite as it is super easy. Also, since my original method for the Cookidoo I have increased the mixing and kneading time to achieve a beautifully mixed dough. I also find this helps to achieve a beautiful rise.

Kneading and Shaping

Once you have mixed dough knead it 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 with a silicone mat or towel and leave in a warm place to rise.

Baste with egg yolk and season as preferred. If you want a super tasty bagel you have to try an Everything Bagel using our “Everything But the Bagel Seasoning“. Bake until lightly golden and cooked through.

    So easy to make and very tasty, these will be a regular addition to my meal planing. I added some blueberries to half the mix before proving, I would sweeten that half of the dough next time, other than that they were perfect thanks Megan

  • YC Yong says:

    Very easy to make and versatile too. I used the dough to make cinnamon rolls, tasted like Danish pastry to me. In Love with the texture too. Will make this over and over again for sure.

    Best Bagels ~ so easy to make as well. My 4yrs old and I made these for the first time yesterday and all 3 of my kids are devoured them (they are tough critics)
    We used them as our buns to make burgers for dinner and were perfect. Will be on high rotation at our house
