Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

Delicious Keto Bagels make me very happy indeed!  If I was to say there was one thing that I truly loved before going keto it was bagels.  My favourite was my Goat’s Cheese and Jalapeño Bagels they were so good….oh and then sometimes I did it with pumpkin as well….

I mean, I couldn’t count how many bagels I have cooked and eaten in my life.  In Australia, bagels have been so underrated as a super star in the bread world.  While I miss the chew and smell of a great boiled bagel these keto bagels are pretty damn good.

This keto bagel version is quite simply an adaptation of a fathead dough, with the addition of baking powder and xanthan gum to give the bagel a bit of “bagel” consistency and rise.

Keto Bagel Variations

This keto bagel dough is ridiculously versatile.  You can use it from everything to pie crusts, pizzas, bombs, dumplings bagels and hotdogs.  As another version, I wrapped the keto bagel dough around a hot dog and baked it, then just topped with sugar free american mustard and tomato sauce.  So good, so easy, and so like an old fashioned dog.

You can also top these with my Trader Joe’s “hacked” seasoning, and enjoy with any of your favourite fillings, or just straight up.

Week 2 Meal Plan Keto Bagel Serving Suggestions

This Keto Bagel recipe has been included in the Week 2 Meal plan for our 365 Members.  If you are following the plan.  While you will find the instructions  for what to serve with your keto bagel on the bottom of your printed plan

Day 1 – Toast a bagel and top with 1/2 avocado and season well with salt and pepper (if you are lucky enough to have the Tajin seasoning this teams fab with avocado)

Day 2 – Bacon and Egg Rolls – Yes please.  Eat you Keto Bagel fresh or toasted along with 2 rashers of bacon and 1 fried or poached egg.  YUMMO!

Bagel Base

Fillings optional


  • Preheat oven to 180℃
  • Add cheese and cream cheese to large glass bowl and microwave for 2 minutes / high. Stir until well mixed
  • Add baking powder, xanthan, eggs and almond meal. Stir until combined, then add to mixer with dough hook, or thermo - mixers and knead for 2 minutes, add jalapeños for last minute, (if no mixer just do this the old fashioned way on the work bench)
  • Roll into 6 balls (mine weighed 95g each). Roll ball out into a sausage that is just long enough to roll around the palm of your hand.
  • Slightly flatten your sausage and then pop small dots of goats cheese along the centre, then encase into the dough by rolling the dough over the cheese, and forming a sausage again
  • Wrap your sausage around the palm of your hand with the ends in your palm, squeeze the 2 ends together, and slightly roll your bagel with a flattened palm on a flat surface. This will complete your shape and seal the ends.
  • Repeat until you have 6 bagels. Baste your bagels with cold water and dunk your bagel top into the seasoning, and place your bagels, seasoning side up onto a baking tray lined with baking paper
  • Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden and cooked through. Serve.


These bagels can be frozen before or after cooking.  For easy use and thawing split before freezing.
The nutritional has been calculated without goat cheese and jalapeños.

  • Anonymous says:

    Megan roughly how long is the roll as I have a large hand LOL

    • Megan says:

      Probably around 25 cm. I dont exactly has a small hand either lol. Alternatively you can just make a bun and push a finger through the centre then gently pull the dough out a little to leave a good sized hole in the middle

    Finally got around to making these! Omg! Wow! I didn’t worry about the goats cheese or jalapenos, but they were still awesome! Made the seasoning as well, but had to improvise with a couple of the ingredients. Love that I will know have a stash in my freezer! Bonus!

  • Lyn Wishart says:

    I’m just wondering about the amount of baking powder? I’ve never used such a large amount before but I’m sure you’re the one who knows best 👌🏼
