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.

You’ll need only 5 ingredients to make the keto bagels dough:

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

The bagels are gluten-free and can be used by the people on the Atkins diet too.

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.

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.

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.

  • In a microwave-safe bowl mix well the shredded mozzarella, the cream cheese, the almond flour, and the baking powder.
  • Microwave the cheese mixture for 60 seconds.

  • Add the eggs while the cheese mixture is still warm.
  • If the dough is too sticky add 1-2 tbsp almond flour and incorporate well.

  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!

      1. It was, actually…maybe too much cream cheese…I eyed it. However, they are super yummy, and are perfect size for hamburgers!

        Thanks again for the perfect bagel replacement!

  3. Hi! Can you substitute mozzarella cheese for shredded cheddar? Not sure if mozz. is just for the flavor or if there's something specific about the moisture of mozzarella that requires it. Thank you!

    1. I guess it should work just as well, but I have never tried it. The recipe requires low moisture mozzarella, so you can make low carb bagels with cheddar cheese.

    1. It is 5g net carbs for a keto bagel. You have to subtract the fiber from the total carbs to get the net carb count. The carb count may be different if you are using other brands, so to make sure I always suggest calculating the macros using the specific products you are using.

    1. Hello Danielle and welcome,
      You can shape the keto bread into a loaf and then slice it. Just watch the cooking time.

  4. hi. i made the bagels but i put them in a donut mold. To actually make them look more uniform. But…i have had them come out very dense. I see no holes like regular bagels. I have tried this twice. and both times it has come out so dense. I left them in the oven the first time 15mins or so, second time like 25-30mins. same problem. What am i doing wrong. thank you

  5. Tried these as my first keto baking project. They probably weren't quite perfect (I don't think I mixed quite enough) and I lost the holes in the middle as I made them a bit fat, but they tasted amazing and I have one for breakfast every morning. I don't even bother putting anything in it as they are delicious on their own. Great recipe and super easy for a noob keto baker, thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Made them this morning. Came out great! I had to add about 1/4 cup more almond flour in order to overcome the stickiness. Thanks for the recipe. Looking forward to trying more!

  7. These are amazing!!! I was nervous about how almond flour would taste because I haven’t ever used it before but couldn’t taste it. Can’t wait to use these for a sandwich.
