Bagels (using Keto Flour)

Unlike other types of bread, bagels are poached in water before baking. The process gelatinises the crust, resulting in a crispy exterior and soft pliable interior. It's the only way to experience real bagels. 

Ingredients (* = available here at Keto Store 
113g Butter melted
3/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Cream
1 teaspoon sugar 
2 teaspoons + 1/4 teaspoon Active Dried Yeast* 
1 Egg 
1/2 teaspoon of Salt 
If making sweet bagels 2 Tablespoons Allulose*. If making savoury leave it out.  
328g (4 Cups) of Keto Flour* 
spray oil for hands to handle and shape the dough
2 litres of water
1 teaspoon Salt 
1 teaspoon Baking Soda* 
Everything but the Bagel seasoning* (with or, and now, without salt) 


1 - Heat up the water and cream to 43 °C
2 - Add 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoons + 1/4 teaspoon active dried yeast 
3 - Stir to combine, cover and leave in a bowl for 10 mins 

4 - Melt the butter and pour into a stand blender bowl with a bread/dough attachment
5 - Add in the activated yeast mixture, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon of Salt 
6 - If you are making sweet bagels, 2 Tablespoons of allulose. If you are doing savoury bagels leave this out. 
7 - Add in 320g of Keto Flour and mix in the stand mixer to combine to form a sticky yet moldable dough 
8 - With a spatula move all the dough off the stand mixer and form into a ball of dough 


9 - Spray your clean hands with oil and scoop out even portions of the dough (approx 1/4 Cup of dough in size).
10 - Roll the dough into a ball, then slightly flatten it
11 - Stick your finger through the centre of the ball. Place one index finger into the hole from the left side and your other index finger into the hole from the right side. turn your fingers over the top of each other in a circular motion to roll and create a bagel or donut shape.
12 - Set aside in a warm environment (avoiding humidity) for 1 hour 

13 - After this time, get a large pot with 2 litres of water with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and bring it to the boil. Turn the heat down so the water is simmering.  
14 - Boil the bagels in the pot - 1 or 2 max at a time and 1 minute a side before turning the bagel over.  This gives the crust a sealed chewy texture. 
15 - Take the bagel out of the water, drying it off before placing onto an oven tray. 
16 - Sprinkle 'Everything but the Bagel' seasoning onto the top of the bagels.

17 - Preheat the oven to 218 °C and place the tray in the middle of the oven 
18 - Bake for 13 minutes.
