KETO RECIPE: Fathead Bagels


Who doesn't love bagels? Luckily, you don't have to give up bagels to live a Ketogenic Lifestyle. Just make them at home! 

This FatHead Dough makes bagels that have the perfect texture and consistency. Today, I kept it simple and topped the bagels off with Everything Seasoning, but you can make any flavor you want. 

Add Jalapeños and cheese on top for a spicy keto snack. Or stuff them with blueberries and top with nut butter for a keto breakfast. 

This Fathead Dough can also be used as a pizza dough. Check out this Fathead Pizza Recipe. 


FatHead Bagels  

  • Serves: 6

  • Prep time: 20 minutes

  • Cook: 15 minutes


  • ¾ cup of almond flour

  • ¾ cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tbsp. of cream cheese

  • 1 egg

  • Salt

  • 1 tbsp of Everything Bagel Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Make the fat head dough add shredded cheese and cream cheese to a microwavable bowl, microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir the mixture and microwave again for 30 more seconds.

  3. Add the egg, salt, and almond flour to the cheese mixture and mix everything together gently.

  4. If dough is sticky sprinkle it with a little extra almond flour. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to firm up.

  5. Once dough is firm, divide into 6 balls and roll them out into logs.

  6. Spray a donut pan with nonstick spray and wrap dough around the tin. Top with Everything Bagel Seasoning.

  7. Bake the bagel for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Variation: Add pepperoni and jalapeño slices for a spicy alternative.

  •  If you don’t have a donut pan you can place your round “wreaths” of dough onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking pad. They will just have a flat bottom, so you could make halves.
