Are Low Carb Bagels and Keto Bagels the Same?
There is always a lot of dispute over what “is keto” or isn’t. You do you! If you think grains will kick you out of ketosis then don’t consume them. Ketosis is the state of burning ketones your body creates when you do not consume too many carbs.
These bagels are approximately 4g net carbs for a full-size bagel. You can find more bagel recipes right here with both my yeasted keto bagel and basic keto bagel recipes. Both have no grains or gluten if you prefer to go that way.

The Atkins Bread mix only requires warm water for it to be made as per the package instructions. To make these easy low carb bagels you will just need;
Atkins Bread Mix – available in most supermarkets. The bread mix is a seedy mix using flour that is low carb, high in protein and fibre. It is suitable for the Atkins Diet and for low carb recipes. It does contain wheat gluten and is not suited to a gluten-free diet.
Granulated Garlic – is found in the spice aisle in the supermarket. It is just dried granules of garlic. You can use fresh minced garlic or dried onion flakes if you prefer. Or you can make an Everything keto bagel with our Everything But the Bagel Seasoning if you prefer.
Parmesan – I use freshly grated parmesan. You can use any firm cheese you prefer. I like the parmesan as it adds a nice sharp cheese flavour to the bagel without them being stringy.
How To Make Low Carb Bagels
Step 1. Add all the ingredients to the mixer.
Insert the dough hook attachment and mix for 5 minutes.
Step 2. Transfer the dough to a workbench or silicone mat. Gently knead the dough into a small ball.
Step 3. Cut the dough into 4 balls.
Step 4. Roll the balls into a long log roughly 25cm long
Step 5. Wrap the log around the top part of your palm and squeeze the ends together to form a bagel (see video). Roll the joining part on the mat with your hand still between the bagel. Transfer to the prepared baking tray. Cover and leave to rise for 1 hour.
Step 6. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Season the bagels with extra garlic and salt flakes (if preferred).
Bake the bread for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through and lightly golden.
Leave to cool on baking trays. Serve as is or with your favourite keto soups, sandwich fillings, or a slathering of cream cheese.
