Low Carb Bagels - Coconut Flour Fat Head Dough
I just made these and they turned out AMAZING I split my dough and put asaigo cheese in one and cinnamon and vanilla, carmel stevia in the other and they turned out so good and I guess because I added those extras I was able to make 10 bagels instead of 6. Mine are cooking right now, they looked great going in, smell great now, and have no doubt will be great. Our favorite in our house is the Peanut Butter power Bars! I have tried the BODE drinks and loved them and would love to try the protein powder! Kyodo News reported that about people complained of agonies.
Also great work, Angela and i made them, delicious! Congratulations for your amazing recipe. Greetings from Greece, love your recipes!!! I made these and added some asiago cheese and they turned out delicious! They were a tiny bit flatter than I would have liked but I think I flattened them too much before baking. They spread more than I expected so if I had left the higher before baking I think they would have turned out perfect! I like dairy but thats to much.
I am cannot wait to try! Can you explain further why you use 2 duck eggs rather than 3 eggs. I have both available to me from my son. I thought duck eggs have more white not less? Just trying to figure out so can try myself. I am in NC and want to compare since stated elevation can affect recipe. I made these both ways today and they came out perfect!
I doubled this dough…worked perfectly. This dough is the holy grail of low carb dough! Awesome bread , I cant beleive it! Something to soread butter or cream cheese on or eggs and sausage. I do not bake much so what would make them raise more , I dont care that mine turned out a little flat because it worked great for a flat bun!
I am just curious as to what i may have done wrong? The baking powder or baking soda helps with rise. However, using too much adversely impacts the taste. This recipe was amazing! I made some mistakes I think i should have cooked the cheeses longer and I hand kneaded it instead of rolling it but they came out fantastic! I can barely taste the coconut flour and the texture tastes JUST like bread. This recipe was also very easy to make! Definitely going to keep it around in my house.
This recipe is perfect! I only made a half batch because I had only a little less than half of Mozzarella in my fridge, measured it by the gram, and added a bit of an Italian cheese blend I had-and used two eggs for that which still worked perfectly. Thank you so much for this recipe. Oh my, I loved lived this bagel recipe!!! I loved bread a lot before I started my Keto diet less than two mths ago.
Oh I think I will be addicted to this bread recipe. Thanks for the idea! Now I just need to see where goat cream cheese is sold in my area. I just made these with cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella.
They rose really well in the oven, but once i pulled them out, they went flat as a tack! Too flat to slice and put butter in. What did i do wrong? The rise comes from the eggs and baking powder. It might help to beat the eggs first before adding. Results can vary depending on elevation too. I ended up using cheddar cheese since I was out of mozzarella. Thank you for the recipe! It is my second time making these in two days They are amazing! Perfect for sandwiches too. I followed the recipe to a T and everything was perfect.
I found I could still taste a hint of coconut so next time I will do more seasoning in the dough, maybe some cheddar too, but once you add toppings it not noticeable at all! These will definitely be going into regular rotation, thank you! Love the idea of adding in some seasonings. And I bet topping off with a little cheese like asiago would be great too.
This has become a must have staple in my house now! Can you freeze them after you cook them? Does this dough thicken up to be able to form into 6 pieces? Mine are cooking right now, they looked great going in, smell great now, and have no doubt will be great.
I made these this afternoon. I had such high hopes—they looked great after taking them out of the oven. One bite and I was very disappointed. All I could taste was baking powder—is the 2T really the correct measurement?
I even whisked the baking powder and coconut flour together to make sure they were well blended. I had the same experience. Attempted to make these with my boyfriend. They looked and smelled great coming out of the oven. We were so excited to bite into one.
So disappointed when we did. They were not edible due to the overwhelming metallic taste of the baking powder. What a waste of all that cheese! I was wondering if the 2 Tablespoons was the correct measurement too. I use aluminum free baking powder or a combination of baking soda and cream of tartar.
This bread is really good. I am new to Keto and was getting tired of eggs. It was quick and easy to make and taste delicious. But it did and this is by far the BEST bread recipe!! Thank you so much for this! I made the almond flour ones recently, and they were pretty good but I wanted to try with coconut flour this time. I used the old recipe and it was a disaster!
It was soo dry. Now I see your recipe and your explanation that I used way too much coconut flour. These are absolutely delicious! We slice them, put 2 eggs, cheese and 3 slices of bacon on one bagel.
We do Keto and it gives us enough fat for breakfast. I stopped eating bagels years ago because they would always plug me up. Can I substitute raw cheddar for the mozzarella? Mine were too wide and flat. I think I rolled the ropes too long when forming the bagels, so they were too wide to start with.
Also, perhaps a donut pan will help constrain the horizontal growth maybe. I found the taste too eggy so I might try substituting one flax egg in next time. Texture was bready which is so wacky. That dough is so bizarre. Thank you for sharing, as I greatly prefer to work with coconut rather than almond if possible. They are similar to flax eggs and I do think it would work with either.
I did two psyllium eggs and one chicken egg. The psyllium was a disaster—turns there is no agreement on the internet as to how much water to use per tablespoon of psyllium. I used a recipe that called for only 2. It was too little. It never fully mixed in. The psyllium cut the eggy taste and these were just great.
Next time, though, the psyllium goes in with the coconut flour and the water goes in separate so we get an even blend. I use them to cut back on eggs due to egg white sensitivity. I am trying it now and will report back! I think my eggs started cooking when I added them to the warm mozzarella, cream cheese and butter. Do we wait until the cheese cools before adding the beaten eggs? Sounds like you heated the cheese too long.
I stir my eggs into the baking powder and coconut flour first because I get mine too hot sometimes. I love this recipe too. This will be regular on my menu for…ever: I was not really sure about using coconut flour because it often leaves that coconutty flavour, which is good in some things but not what I wanted in a bagel. This is excellent, and I will definitely be making it again and again. I might try forming rolls next time.
Thank you for the recipe. I tried this tonight and the taste was pretty good. I read the comments and it was probably because I kneaded the dough too much. Not sure how to avoid that. I used fat free mozzarella. Could that be the reason.
I hope it works out for you. Coconut flour can be a little more difficult to work with. I may try thinning the batter with a bit more liquid to see if it helps with the dryness some have mentioned.
I made these again today and they look great! Measured ingredients with a scale this time. The only thing I actually did differently was to throw in the butter with the cheese when melting. The butter took forever to melt, but it still worked beautifully. Coconut flour to the rescue! I made these bagels today, and they are great!
I had a silicone donut pan so I made 12 bagels from this dough. I did add some Seasoning to half of them. Thanks, I really like them! Thanks for the recipe. I made these a couple days ago and they tasted great. Unfortunately they did not rise and turned out like flatbread. This did not affect the taste, but I would prefer them to really turn out as a bagel so I can use them as buns.
Planning on adding more baking powder the next time, but is there anything else that could make them rise? The right amount of baking powder is key along with NOT overworking the dough. You also should get them in the oven pretty quickly.
I loved these and the almond flour version. Thanks for the recipes! These were good, I have made them twice but for some reason mine did not rise correctly so I ended up with flat bagels. They were still good. Overworking the dough can result in flatter bagels.
Also, a bit more baking powder may be needed. Trying my first batch now in oven. Have you ever tried to sweeten these up a little, say with a little Splenda? Can I just say WOW!!! This might just be the key to my success. These were sooo easy and they are so good. My super picky hubby liked them as well. Thank you so much for this recipe! Thanks so much for writing in to let us know how they worked out.
Yes, if too moist, definitely cook them a bit longer or add a little more coconut flour. Quick question, do i need to store these in the fridge or can they be stored on the counter in a Ziploc?
You can probably leave them out for a day or so, but I like to keep them in a zipper bag in the refrigerator. I tried this recipe tonight and am so happy! Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
I will be making this again. I kinda gasped when I saw the amount of baking powder and after reading through the comments I wanted to ask if a combo of baking powder and soda be used successfully in this recipe? You could try a combo, but I usually use one or the other. Be careful mixing baking soda and coconut flour. They can react and turn the bread green!
I use aluminum free baking powder I usually make my own from cream of tartar and baking soda so that may be why it never happens to me. I ended up with fluffier bagels than i expected. I used benecol instead of butter so i added about 12tbs more and i added 2 tbs ground flax powder and 1 scoop of nutrim. They taste great and are super filling and just what i was looking for. I think i will experiment with adding some garlic powder in the mix and some sesame seeds on top next time.
Even my 15yo daughter thought they were tasty. Thanks for the great recipe Lisa! I also like them a bit on the salty side. Coconut oil or unsalted butter could be used to cut down on salt as well as reducing the baking powder. Sadly these were awful. They tasted like baking soda.
I took one bite and tossed them all. The dough was crumbly, and they ended up looking like huge cookie globs. I have noticed coconut flour can vary. I added in some extra notes to the recipe as the dough should have been wet and sticky, not dry. Also, if you used baking soda, less needs to be used than the baking powder called for in the recipe. Baking soda and baking powder which the recipe calls for are different. Hard to believe they would taste like baking soda when using baking powder.
I have a child with a nut allergy so the almond flour was a no-go. Some may need slight adjustments as coconut flour can vary a lot more than almond flour. I made these bagels before and I found the dough was really difficult to handle and found them hard to form, also they are salty tasting. I wonder if there is a mozzarella cheese that has less salt? Can you use a mixer to mix the dough and then knead it? I tried these and the texture is much like biscuits, not bagels, actually quite crumbly.
Also because of the large amount of cheese I found them much too salty. What brand of coconut flour did you use? They have never come out crumbly for me. In fact, they should be chewy from the mozzarella. Did you weigh the coconut flour and mozzarella? Some mozzarella tends to be saltier than others.
You can use unsalted butter to cut back. I doubt the other cheeses would do the same. Both turned out the same as mozzarella.
My favorite way to use protein powder is in a smoothie for after a workout and in snack balls made with oats, cocoa powder, and nut butter! I just love to fill my blender half way with spinach lettuce. Then add ice, water, a tablespoon of peanut butter. I mix that all up and then add protein powder and shake it up in my blender cup. I get my veggies, protein, and fat. It is a smoothie but I like the peanut butter: I also make ice cream in my blender with fruit and ice and a little almond milk.
We have added protein powder to it too and make Popsicles for the kids!! When im in a rush in the morning a put a scoop of my cinnamon protein powder in my coffee! Protein plus caffine punch: Serve topped w a little PB2 and some fresh berries…yum!! Less in freezer roll into balls of about an inch in diameter.

I have a black bean brownie recipe that uses protein powder. A great little healthy snack with a boost of protein to keep me full! Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Oatmeal: Cook the oatmeal to your liking and add in the scoop of protein powder and then put in fridge to cool. Once oatmeal is cooled, scoop yogurt on top of oatmeal and sprinkle chocolate chips on top and enjoy. A butterfinger shake is my favorite.
I used Beverly international UMP when I was training for competition and the chocolate makes great pudding, all you had to do was add water.
I like to make homemade protein bars made with oatmeal, honey, natural peanut butter cocoa powder unsweetened and protein powder. Thanks to all other posting recipes. Delicious way to start the day!

The best part is the above recipe 1 serving made 4 popsicles!
Talk about a snack! My fav is frozen bananas, 1 T PB2, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, and enough unsweetened vanilla almond milk to cover the bananas. Blend it and suck it down! The pancakes look good and gluten free too. I am allergic to egg whites, what could be used as a substitute? Looking at all these recipes is really helpful. Gonna try some new things. I love a portable, power-packed breakfast I where I can switch up the tastes according to the day, my activities and even the weather.
Then I often add berries, a banana, or other fruit in season. I use Herbalife meal replacement. My fav is apple pie protein shake! Scoop of vanilla protein powder, almond milk, half of a diced apple or sugar free all natural applesauce a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, ice and blend… yum!
