Low Carb Gluten Free Bagel Recipe

You guys loved Dessi’s low carb gluten free bread post a few weeks ago that she decided to make the ultimate gluten free bagel recipe. You can use this batter to make bagels or bread, either way you are in for some of the best starch and grain free bread you will ever try! Most gluten free bread recipes are loaded with starches like potato, tapioca, and rice, bu this gluten free bagel recipe is 100% starch free, making it perfect for the keto diet.

If also have a recipe for gluten free cloud bread, it’s made with cream cheese and eggs and is light and airy like a cloud. This gluten free bread recipe has 3 main ingredients: macadamia nuts, eggs, and coconut butter. Many people have been asking me where you can buy coconut butter. The best price is on Amazon. It is very hard to make it because they use fresh coconut meat, not flakes. So don’t bother trying it at home.

The key to making this gluten free bagel recipe is to thoroughly mix the batter in a food processor or powerful blender. You have to mix it very well and them get the batter in the oven asap so the oil does not start to sink to the bottom. We used a gallon size zip top bag to pipe the bagels into a doughnut tin. Just cut the end off of the bag and squeeze away.

Use the same keto fat bread recipe and make my:

Just look at that bagel, cream cheese, and salmon sandwich. How good does that look!? Growing up, we would go to the deli and have fresh bagels all of the time, but now Dessi & I avoid flours and starches most of time, plus the wheat they use to make bagels is so refined these days that it has no nutritional value. This low carb bagel recipe is just about as close as you can get to the real deal, and when you make a sandwich from it, you will be in heaven.

Once you fill the doughnut tins with the bagel batter, tap them on the counter to settle the batter, and then transfer to the oven until golden brown. Make sure the bagels have a nice golden brown color on them and then pull from the oven. Schmear the low carb bagel with full fat cream cheese, some smoked sugar free salmon, tomatoes, and red onions. You will be one happy camper!

These low carb everything bagels are perfect for the keto diet beause you can eat bread again! This keto bagel recipe makes 10 bagels and is perfect for a low carb bagel sandwich.



  • 1 cup macadamia nuts unsalted & roasted if desired
  • 1 cup coconut butter I like this one
  • 5 good quality eggs
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F and make sure the oven rack is set in the middle of the oven. Add the macadamia nuts to a food processor or a powerful blender and process for about 30 seconds, until almost creamy. While the machine is running, add the eggs one at a time, making sure each one has been incorporated into the batter before adding the next one. Turn the machine off and add the coconut butter and salt, and process until smooth and creamy. While the machine is off, add the baking soda, lemon zest and juice, and process for 10-15 seconds.
  2. Spray some non-stick in a bagel or donut pan. Add the batter to a large zip-top bag, cut off one of the corners, and pipe the batter into the tin and tap it on the counter a couple times. Sprinkle as much of the everything bagel seasoning as you would like and use your finger to gently press it down into the batter so it does not fall off. Bake in the oven for about 22 minutes, or until nicely golden brown on top. Remove from oven, allow to sit in tin for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a cooling rack for 15 minutes.
  3. Slice the bagels and enjoy! Bagels will keep for 3 days in the fridge in an airtight container or can be frozen for 3 months.

    1. it’s a mix from trader joes or you can buy it from the amazon link in this post. Its garlic and onion granules with salt, and sesame seeds.

  1. WOW! I didn’t even wait for these to cool before I sliced one open and loaded it up with cream cheese. It was DELICIOUS! My only problem was the bottom bagel was a little sad without the Everything Bagel Seasoning so I sprinkled a little Everything seasoning on the cream cheese. :). I followed the recipe as it was written. The bagels are well worth the investment in the coconut butter and macadamia nuts which were on the pricey side.

  2. Very tasty and makes a great sandwich, however, I am not a fan of coconut butter. Would butter or ghee be a good substitute? Keep up creating the excellent recipes!

  3. Hi I am wondering if these taste eggy. If not I will definitely try them I have made a couple different ones already . Thank you

  4. Hiiiiiii! I am new to the Keto lifestyle and am so happy to come across your page. You have such great recipes and I am so looking forwrd to trying some of them out. You give so many options we are sure to not get tired or feel like we are always eating the same thing! I do have a question, I hope you can help me with, I am going on my first grocery haul and am not sure what to get besides meats, bacon, and eggs. If you had to put together a keto starter list, what would you include?

    1. i dont like to go to heavy on the fat for keto…i focus on low carb…i like what you got..but you also need coconut milk, cauliflower. mayo w/o sugar, almonds, walnuts, spinach. I think you are off to a good start

      1. Hi Bobby, are you saying you can sub almond butter for the coconut butter in this keto bagel recipe? Loved the bread! Can’t wait to try the bagels and muffins…waiting for more coconut butter to arrive…I have almond butter on hand.

        1. Hi Susan, yes you can sub almond butter for the coconut butter. The flavor and color is slightly different, but overall pretty much the same.

  5. I only have one donut pan. Is it a good idea to wait for the second batch or maybe use a muffin tin to make rolls at the same time?

  6. Just made the bagels and they were delicious. I think my food processor was to small. What is the one you use to mix the dough.. P.S. Love your videos!

    Question. What is coconut butter? I’ve never seen it in stores. Is it the same as coconut manna? I’m going to make this bread today; I have the macadamia nuts and other ingredients from Trader Joe’s. Is there a substitute?

    Love your shows. Did you film your trip to Israel? I would love to see it as I am going there in September.

    1. Coconut manna and coconut butter are the same. Here’s a link to the coconut butter on Amazon – it’s the best price I’ve seen: https://amzn.to/2L7ZUGd

      My trip to Israel was only filmed as an Instagram story – sorry. Have an amazing trip when you go!

  8. I made these last night and followed the directions. My bagels came out like sponge-y. I’ll try to leave the bagels in the oven longer to see if that will help to make them firm.

    1. Hi Lafay, did you use the correct ingredients? If you subbed any of them or if your processor didn’t blend them well to together, that might attribute to the spongy texture.

  9. Amazingly delicious, so excited to find this recipe! Thank you!!! Also a heads up to save a little money you can totally make coconut manna at home it’s super easy if you have a good food processor or blender. It’s a lot cheaper and saves me having to order it online as I can never find it when I go shopping. Just use shredded coconut and keep blending until it’s super creamy, takes like 10 min, works like a charm. The bagels came out perfect! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!
