Below is two different types of recipes for Paleo Bagels. I placed both these recipes together as the second one has some ingredients that not all will find 100% paleo and the first doesn’t. Some people on their journey to a healthy paleo diet lifestyle choose to allow certain ingredients in to their diet in small quantities not very often, as long as they do not cause stomach problems. Others prefer to eat strict paleo meaning only what the cavemen were able to forge for. Bagel recipe one, from family and friends that have tried it say it is delicious, however, has a bit of a muffin like texture. Bagel recipe two was more of a hit. Hit has the active dry yeast in it giving it more of a bread taste and feel to it. After making the batter for both recipes you can also add raisins and cinnamon or apple chunks and cinnamon instead of just toppings. Try them out and leave me a comment below letting me know what you think.
Bagel Recipe One
1 ½ tsp garlic powder
5 tbsp butter, grass-fed or ghee
½ tsp paleo baking powder, non-aluminum
6 tbsp coconut flour
6 eggs, large and organic
¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a donut pan by greasing with grass-fed butter or ghee.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, butter, salt, and garlic powder.
- In a small bowl, combine coconut flour with baking powder.
- Whisk dry ingredients into wet ingredients, beating batter until there are no lumps.
- Pour into prepared donut pan. At this point you can top the bagels prior to backing with ingredients such as poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion flakes.
- Bake 15 minutes. Cool on rack. Serve.
Bagel Recipe Two
6 tbsp water, lukewarm
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup, raw and natural
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp active dry yeast
1 egg, large and organic
2 cups almond flour, blanched
1 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
Coconut oil, for greasing baking sheet
1-2 quarts water
1/4 cup (per 1 quart of water) honey or maple syrup, raw and natural
Poppy seeds, Sesame seeds, Onion flakes for toppings
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a large baking sheet with some coconut oil.
- In a large bowl, combine the water with the honey and olive oil. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let sit a couple minutes.
- Whisk in the egg.
- Stir in the flours and salt. Dough should come together and be very stiff.
- Separate the dough into 6 balls, and make the dough balls into bagel shapes.
- Using the measurements for Water Bath, combine the water and honey or maple syrup in the large saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Boil the bagels, one or two at a time depending on saucepan size, for 1 minute or so,when they rise to the top they are done boiling. Repeat until all the bagels have been boiled. Place boiled bagels on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion flakes, or leave plain.
- Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
