I love bread and making my own sourdough and wheat bread were just a few of my favorites. The best part of making bread is the opening of the oven, and slicing a fresh piece of the hot bread, and placing a slice of cold butter on top of that warm bread. It melts down the side and you begin to have many memories as it reaches your lips. Were those memories at home when your grandmother baked bread, or your mother making a sandwich with freshly baked bread.

While on my ketogenic lifestyle the love of those things we used to enjoy; don’t need to be distant memories. While surfing on my Facebook group of fellow Ketogenic lovers. Post of these bagels kept popping up.
I found a recipe from wholesomyum.com
I made them and they tasted good, but I want to play with this recipe by adding yeast next time to perhaps create that elasticity that you experience with a bagel.
Here is the recipe of the 5- Ingredient low carb bagel with almond flour.
1 1/2 cups of Almond Flour
1 TB Baking Powder
2 1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese shredded
2 oz cream cheese
Sesame seed and poppy seeds
1 TB butter
In a bowl mix the almond flour and the baking powder. Place the mozzarella cheese and the cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl, until melted. Stir as needed. About 2 minutes. Just keep and eye on it.
Add the cheese mixture to the flour mixture together and stir with a spoon. Add in eggs and form into a ball. Cut the ball into 6 pieces. Take each piece and roll out into ropes. Place to ends together to form a bagel.
Brush with butter and sprinkle sesame seeds and poppy seeds if you choose.
Bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes.
