Even though I when I want a keto bread, I usually make my super simple 90 seconds bread, I decided to try the super popular keto bagel fathead dough bagels recipe.


For the fathead dough, you need simple ingredients like:

  • shredded low-moisture mozzarella
  • cream cheese
  • eggs
  • almond or coconut flour
  • baking powder

Make sure all the ingredients are well incorporated before you proceed to the next step. I prefer to mix the shredded cheese and cream cheese with the almond flour before melting it in the microwave. This way I am sure that all the ingredients are well combined.

I topped my keto bagels with everything seasoning mix but feel free to add any seasonings you like.

I’m not sure who came with the idea of making low carb baked goods out of mozzarella dough but it’s a brilliant idea. It’s super easy to make and turns out great everytime.

You won’t miss bread with the keto bagels recipe because it’s perfect for low carb breakfast sandwiches, toasted with butter or cream cheese on top.

You can use the fathead dough as a gluten-free pizza crust, you can make keto breakfast hot pockets. It’s so versatile, you can even make keto desserts like Low Carb Keto Cinnamon Rolls with Fat Dough and they turn out divine.

I am pretty sure you will love the texture of the keto bagels and will want to make them over and over again. Each bagel is only 5g net carbs per serving.

They require a little more work than other keto bread recipes but they are way tastier and have no eggy taste.

This recipe yields six bagels meaning six serving. You can refrigerate them for up to 6 days. I almost never had the opportunity to keep them in my fridge because everyone in my family loves them.

To show you how I eat the keto bagel for breakfast, here’s an example. Cut the bread in half and toast. Smear one half of the bagel with cream cheese, add a fried egg, cooked bacon slices, avocado and some veggies of choice. It’s one of my favorite keto breakfasts. Super easy to make and great to take with you at work ar pack for when traveling.

  1. The local bagel shop closed a while ago and we live nowhere near another. Sad.
    It's wonderful to know about these; I'm pretty sure my husband will love them too.
    Seriously, thank you for this recipe, you've changed my life!

  2. These were so easy and so tasty! Haven't eaten wheat in 3 years but only started doing keto about 2 weeks ago. This is the first bagel I have had in 3 years and it was delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
