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.
This version is quite simply an adaptation of a fathead dough, with the addition of baking powder and xanthin gum to give it the bite and rise.
As another version, I wrapped the 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 top these with my Trader Joe’s “hacked” seasoning, and enjoy with any of your favourite fillings, or just straight up.

One of the simplest recipes that gives you a very bagel-like keto bagel
- 1 tbsp pickled jalapeños diced
- 100 g goats cheese
- 1 tbsp Megs Everything but the Bagel seasoning
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
Enjoy with your favourite fillings
