3-Ingredient Grain-Free Bagels :: GAPS-Intro, Low Carb
Enjoy breakfast again with these easy, 3-ingredient grain-free bagels! They’re perfect for a GAPS-Intro, primal, or low carb diet.
Some people are eggs and bacon morning people, some people prefer cereal, some are just about a slice of toast and jam. And me? I could eat a bagel for breakfast every morning for the rest of my life and be one happy momma.
Maybe it’s just me, but nothing quite says ‘good morning’ like a freshly toasted bagel, dripping with melted butter or piled high with cream cheese. I’m not really a morning person, but that’s worth getting up for. Especially if I didn’t have to share. Which I don’t think has happened once in the last 10 years, but it’s a nice thought…
It’s a hard GAPS life.
Unfortunately, since going gluten-free, my morning bagels have been few and far between. In fact, I can probably count the time I’ve had bagel over the past 6 years on one hand! And starting the GAPS intro diet didn’t give me much hope of a future with my beloved bagels, either.
For the first few stages I ate soup for pretty much every meal, ’cause that’s just what all the cool people do. Then once I could handle eggs, I added those (yes, into the soup, but also in omelettes). When I got to those fun little nut butter and squash pancakes on stage three my breakfast game was looking up.
But I still missed my breakfast breads.
Finally stage four came and I began introducing the yummy baked goods. After I got the hang of GAPS intro muffins I got a brilliant idea: fill up my donut pan with muffin batter!
Genius, I tell you.
Not to brag, or anything, ’cause I’m really such a humble person (ha!), but these turned out WONDERFULLY. No more missing bagels, my friends. I know, they’re not a perfect replica, because GAPS intro… but they’re as good as you can get! Especially after you toast them up and top them with butter.
Now, these little beauties do have dairy in them. You can try using coconut yogurt or coconut cream in place of the dairy, but I haven’t tried it yet, so don’t be mad at me if it doesn’t work for you.
I’ll probably be trying it soon, though, since I’m not doing well with dairy. But until I figure that out, enjoy these delicious little grain-free bagels for breakfast!
Finally…. my search is over!! ?? This is the best bagel recipe ever!! There are so many low carb and gluten free bagel recipes on the net and I think i’ve probably tried every single one. This bagel recipe, with only 3 ingredients, is the BEST one so far. I’d give it an 11 out if 10!! And they toast really well too!! I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder and kicked them up a tiny notch by adding some parsley flakes. Thanks, Raia, for a bagel recipe I will continue to make!
We love these!! I used sour cream, added Trader Joe’s “21 Seasoning” to the batter, and Everything Bagel to the tops.. I have made them twice so far and they seem to keep well in the fridge. (I used 144 grams of almond flour if anyone weighs their flour and that worked!) Thank you, Raia!
Seems to be some missing steps and variations in baking I don’t know. I remember my ex-wife boiling the bagel rings for a short time, then baking. Cupcake pan not involved at all. Almond flour also not an ingredient. Baking now. Holes in the middle done how? Dough looked a little stickier than I remembered. Hope all is right. Welcome for my wife.
These bagels are not baked like regular wheat ones. The dough will be quite different! I also don’t make them in a cupcake pan. I bake them in a donut pan. Here is a link to the pan I use… If you bake them in a cupcake pan, they definitely won’t look like bagels. ??
I stated the GAPS diet for my high functioning autistic son. He’s recovering fantastically. My three year old speech delayed daughter refuses broth though. And she appears to suffer from IBS. She did however fully do intro with the broth but refuses broth since. Sometimes she does not digest her food in her stools. Sometimes baked good with eggs causes stomach pain and gas other times not. She cannot have any scrambled, raw, or hard boiled eggs without severe pain. Should I take her off all eggs? Then she misses out though and I worry about her nutrition. And the baked good with eggs and the pain is random. Any thoughts?
Raia, I wonder if I can use a small loaf pan to make this recipe into a bread, instead of using a bagel/donut pan. Your thoughts?
I’ve made these bagels several times (in my donut mold) and they’re fantastic!
Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
