Fathead Bagels


  • 2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (full-fat)
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • Optional: Butter, Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, or Sesame Seeds


Preheat oven to 400° F. Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in microwave, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Whisk together 2 eggs, baking powder, vinegar, and buttermilk. Pour egg mixture into cheese mixture and stir a couple times before adding almond flour. Knead the dough with hands until well incorporated. Alternatively, pulse a few times in food processor. The dough should be smooth and fairly elastic (not two-toned) when done. Divide dough into 4 rolls. Use your thumb to press a hole into the center of the roll, making a bagel shape. Bake bagels in preheated oven, on a greased baking sheet, for 20 minutes or until lightly golden. If desired, brush the tops of the bagels with butter and sprinkle with Everything But The Bagel Seasoning or sesame seeds.

Nice post, thehypothyroidismchick! As I’m a food lover, I learn a lot about people from the food they enjoy the most! From one food lover to another (I hope!), what’s the best thing you ever tasted?
