Yes, you can have bagels on the keto diet!


  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp everything seasoning optional



  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese to a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  3. Remove from the microwave and stir with a four until fully combined. Immediately add the almond flour, egg, and baking powder. Stir to combine until the flour and eggs are incorporated into the mozzarella. If the dough is sticky, knead with hand until long longer sticky.
  4. Divide dough into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a doughnut shape. Place on prepared baking sheet. Garnish with the desired topping or leave plain.
  5. Bake 15 minutes. If desired, broil for 1 minute to brown the top of the bagels.

Recipe Notes

If the dough is too sticky, reheat for 30 seconds in the microwave and re-mix and it should hold up. If it’s still sticky after reheating, add 1/4 cup more flour and mix in.

Keto Cereal

Yes, a keto cereal! It’s even a cinnamon toast cereal!


  • 192 g almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum or 1 tsp flax meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 80 g grass-fed butterfat room temperature*
  • 96 g golden erythritolor erythritol-based sweeteners
  • 1 egg


  • 28 g grass-fed buttermelted
  • 2 tablespoons xylitolor Swerve
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon



  1. Add almond flour, cinnamon, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
  2. Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer, 2-3 minutes. Add in sweetener and continue to beat until thoroughly light and fluffy and much of the sweetener has dissolved.
  3. Add in egg, mixing until just incorporated. The mixture will appear slightly ‘broken’ (i.e. not thoroughly smooth).
  4. With your mixer on low, add in half of your flour mixture- mixing until just incorporated. Mix in the rest.
  5. Wrap cereal dough with cling film (saran wrap) and refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 3 days.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.


  1. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper until nice and thin. Using a ruler, cut dough lengthwise and then crosswise into squares. Prick each piece with a small fork (optional).
  2. Transfer parchment paper with the keto cinnamon toast crunch to a baking sheet or tray, and place in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to baking. The shaped dough can be frozen for up to 3 months, and baked straight from the freezer (adding 2-3 minutes more to the baking time).
  3. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until fully golden (depending on size and thickness). Keep an eye out for them, and note that if you like them crisp you’ll want to push the baking time as much as possible (until deep golden).
  4. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon ‘sugar’. You can also do this prior to baking for a more ‘crusty’ result, both work well just depending on your preference so feel free to experiment.
  5. Allow to cool for ten minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely, as they’ll continue to crunch up (this may take a few hours for the sweetener to harden up again!).
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


Coconut butter can be substituted if dairy free or paleo. Just note that your cereal will be less airy (and therefore crunchy). Having said that, still much crunchier than our previous version!

  1. Wow very cool. It looks like you can just use the alternate flours like coconut flour or almond flour to make things like they would make from wheat flour. I saw some coconut flour in the store. Does it taste like coconut? 

    Do you have any recommendations on where to buy these kinds of flour online? My store only offers a few options. 

    Is Pea Protein Keto? Do you think I could use flavorless Pea Protein Powder as flour?

    1. Well some people say that they can taste the coconut, but I can’t..

      Yes, I have found a bunch of flours on amazon. I’ll provide a link. I don’t think that pea protein powder is keto-friendly. If I remember right it’s not. And since peas aren’t keto friendly, then the protein powder probably isn’t.

  2. Just got done making these beautiful Keto Bagels, couldn’t wait to try them so had one fresh out of the oven!!! Oh my!!!. The truth is that, I’ve tried a fair few recipes the last few days but this was the best so thank u so much Thanks for sharing your recipe!!! Delicious!!! I will definitely try the others, and give you a feedback.


  3. Although I have heard about the Keto diet, I was hoping to get some background or introduction to what the Keto diet is before getting straight into the recipes. Some great looking recipes and ideas, but an explanation about Keto would be great and educational. Is the Keto diet or way of life similar to Banting? or is it very different? I would appreciate if you could expand more on what Keto actually is. Thanks

  4. Hi there, I really liked your site and I’ve mentioned it to my wife who is most definitely on board for the breakfast recipes! Is the goal of the site to inform people how to eat healthy on a budget and eat less carbs in general ? I’ve never heard of the Keto diet until now but my wife has informed me it is to limit the number of carbs. What are some of the health advantages of the diet ? I’ve heard a high fat diet is a good move. 

    Site wise, the presentation is as good as any I’ve seen and the instructions would be something even I could follow ! :p  I think I’ll go with the green smoothie first and see how that goes. I play a lot of soccer during the summer and am often on the look out for a good energy booster smoothie afterwards. 

  5. Hello Buffy, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. Keto diet is truly one of the best diets where folks can lose a significant amount of weight. I plan to start with keto as I need to lose a few pounds and this recipe looks so delicious. I never tried Naked egg tacos so now is the chance to enjoy in this meal.

  6. Oh, thank God I found your site.

    I’ve fallen off the keto wagon so bad that I actually had rice for lunch! I ran out of recipes to try that are cheap and easy to make. I have a young child so time is of the essence and, of course, he’s not on the diet. lol

    These look really easy to make and delicious to boot. And also, it seems he can eat these too. Win-win!

    Thanks for sharing. 

  7. C’mon this can’t be keto foods are they? Wow,it’s hard to believe because when I was on keto diet for a while, I couldn’t think any of this were something I could eat and honestly, I felt deprived because it’s not a eating habits I was used to in the past. Seeing this now, I feel pained that I didn’t get this earlier. I think I’ll go back to the keto diet after this. Yes, the keto foods look good and I want my keto back.

    1. Yes they are 🙂 It’s because we use substitutes now. Stevia/monk fruit for sweeteners, and almond/coconut flour instead of regular flour. So we don’t have to feel deprived anymore! Yay!

  8. I have been looking for quick and easy keto breakfast ideas. I came across your article and I know for sure I am going to try those Keto chocolate muffins. Those look delicious! I have a lot of chocolate cravings and that is my downfall, so I’m hoping to cure my cravings with these muffins. Also, the cinnamon and chocolate breakfast smoothies I am going to give a try too. These seem so simple to make, I never would have thought going on a keto diet would be this easy. Thanks for the ideas!

  9. I was just talking with my daughter about Keto, these recipes will be great to share with her. I’m looking forward to trying them myself. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I too often skip it. Now I have some quick and easy things to get my day going. Thank you.
