- 1 1/2 cup Almond flour
- 1 Tbsp Baking powder
- 2 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese shredded
- 2 oz Cream cheese cubed
- 2 large Eggs beaten
- Sesame seeds for topping - optional
- Cinnamon and sugar for topping - optional
- Everything seasoning for topping - optional
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the almond flour and baking powder, removing clumps. Set aside.
Combine shredded mozzarella and cubed cream cheese in a large bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes, stir and mix until incorporated.
Stir the flour mixture and eggs into the melted cheese mixture. Working quickly while the cheese is still hot, knead with your hands until a dough forms. The dough is very sticky, but keep kneading and squeezing through your fingers for a few minutes. (If the dough becomes hard before fully mixed, and is difficult to mix, or is still sticky after a couple minutes, you can microwave to reheat for 15-20 seconds to soften it. In that case, wash your hands and knead again. Dough needs to be well formed before starting the rolling for bagel shapes. To make this step easier to mix the dough, you can use mixer with a dough attachment instead of kneading by hand.
Divide the dough into 6 parts.
Form/roll a 6" log shape between hands with each part, then press the ends together to make a bagel shape, place on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Sprinkle with desired toppings. If using sesame seeds, sprinkle them over the bagels and gently press into the dough.
Bake for 10-14 minutes, until the bagels are firm and golden.
Toast bagel in toaster and top with cream cheese, fried or scrambled eggs and cheese, peanut butter, butter and or sugar free jam for a crispy delicious quick and healthy breakfast!
