Nut-Free Keto Bagel Recipe FAQs

Before making this recipe, be sure to read through these answers to commonly asked questions about keto bagels:

How is this a nut-free recipe if they contain coconut flour?

Contrary to popular belief, coconuts are not a nut. They are actually a fruit (a drupe).

Real Balanced recipes are nut-free, but DO contain coconut products as I follow the recommendations of the Doctors at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology.

This is what they have to say:

Although the Food and Drug Administration labels coconut as a tree nut, the vast majority of tree nut-allergic individuals also tolerate coconut without difficulty, since coconut is not truly a nut, but rather a fruit

American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology

If you have a coconut allergy, I have many keto coconut-free recipes for you! If you are allergic to tree nuts but are unsure if you are also allergic to coconut, ask your doctor to test you!

Why are my bagels darker/lighter in color than the ones in the photos?

The color of your low carb bagels may vary depending on the ingredients or brands that you use. For example, brown flax will yield a darker looking bread than golden.

Why are my bagels purple?

For this recipe, psyllium husk is used. If the bread turns purple, it’s due to the brand of psyllium husk powder. Though it’s not completely known why psyllium powder sometimes turns foods purple, some think it may have to do with the minerals being “activated” when cooked. This is usually more common when yeast is involved in the recipe.

This recipe doesn’t use yeast as an ingredient, but if your bagels turn purple, don’t worry! The bagels are absolutely fine to eat and will taste just as intended.

Note that you won’t want to omit this ingredient, as psyllium husk benefits include probiotic properties, and the powder can aid in lowering blood sugar levels.

Why are my bagels green?

Much like with the purple coloring, if your bagels have specks of green in them, don’t panic! They’re completely edible and will taste just as intended.

Sunflower seeds contain a chlorogenic acid (an antioxidant) that, when combined with an alkaline baking ingredient like baking soda, can turn spots of the dough green. This happens when the two ingredients are heated together and then begin to cool.

We need the baking soda to make the bread rise, so be sure not to leave this ingredient out.

SunButter notes that in some recipes, adding a splash of lemon juice can help to offset any green hues. In this recipe, a small amount of lemon juice is included for this reason.

How many net carbs are in these nut-free bagels?

Each bagel contains 1.1 grams of net carbs. This amount does not include the optional seasonings and toppings included in the recipe card.

This recipe yields 10 servings in total, and each serving is equal to one bagel. The serving sizes are quite generous and will leave you feeling full and satisfied!

How to serve keto fathead bagels?

Nut-free keto bagels are best served warm and fresh from the oven, but they can also be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator and served later.

For serving, slice bagels in half and add desired toppings, such as cream cheese, SunButter, or butter!

What materials are needed to make this recipe?

These recipe for keto bagels is so easy! All you need are mixing bowls, an electric mixer, spatulas, an electric mixer, and a bagel pan.

How to store these fluffy keto bagels?

These nut-free bagels are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, but can also be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

  • Room Temperature Storage: When kept on a plate at room temperature and covered with a muslin cloth, they will remain fresh for up to 2-3 days.

Transfer pan to oven and bake until golden, about 40-50 minutes, being careful to not bake too long as the bagels will continue to firm up once they are removed from the oven as they cool.

Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing bagels from cavities and placing on a wire rack to fully cool.

Recipe Notes:

Psyllium Husk Powder: Make sure to use psyllium husk powder (commonly referred to as “ground psyllium husk,”) not whole psyllium husk. If all you have on-hand is whole psyllium husk, simply blitz the whole psyllium husks in a blender or food processor until ground.

Cooked Bagels Appear Purple In Color: If your bagels look slightly purple, it’s due to the brand of psyllium powder. If this happens, do not worry! The bagels are absolutely fine to eat and will taste just as intended.

Bagel Dough Turned Green In Some Spots: If your cooked bagels have specks of green in them, don’t panic! They’re completely edible and will taste just as intended. Sunflower seeds contain an acid that, when combined with an alkaline baking ingredient like baking soda (which you need to make low carb breads rise), it can turn spots of the dough green.

Net Carbs: Each bagel contains 1.1 grams of net carbs. The optional seasonings and toppings are not included in this amount.

Storage: These nut free bagels are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, but can also be stored at room temperature on a plate covered with a muslin cloth for 2-3 days.
