These are so very delish. Not hard to make. Perfect anytime.
What's not to like there? I am happy to get the chance to review these Bagel Spice products. They had me at Everything bagel.
The wonderful taste and textures of the toppings have made Everything bagels a favorite from my bread eating days. I always have such a hard time saying no at the annual teachers breakfasts-- which always have a full table of designer bagels.(and absolutely nothing low carb) Everything and Asiago cheese bagels have always been my favorites. Because this bagel recipe has cheese in it, these low carb treats taste like my two favorites combined! It is love at first bite.
The Bagel Spice company sent me three different flavors. This is the original. Salt free, gluten free and not just for bagels, of course. I do have a few other ideas awaiting, but I just had to start out here, with a copy of the original treat. These are not boiled and baked, and they definitely do not have that sturdy chewiness of a gluten filled treat. They also don't have many carbs and they taste amazing! I am thinking some crackers for the version that has sea salt, and perhaps a fish topping the the spicy variety. Check out this product! http://www.bagelspice.com/
Remember I said not hard to make? I am so lazy that I didn't even use separate bowls for the wet and dry ingredients. After combining the wet ingredients, I just dumped the dry ones over and mixed lightly before diving to the bottom of the mixing bowl. Worked fine. I hate dishes. One ingredient note. I used almond meal that I blended myself. It has the skins and is a little more coarse than almond flour. I think either will work fine, though.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs with olive oil. Stir in cheese. Add the almond meal, coconut flour, Parmesan cheese, baking powder, salt and xanthan gum. Toss the dry ingredients lightly, then mix in with the egg and cheese mixture. When a thick batter forms, spoon the mixture into a sandwich bag and secure the opening with a twisty tie. With kitchen shears, cut about 1/2 inch of the corner off the bag. Sprinkle a small pinch of the Bagel Spice blend into the oiled cavities of a doughnut maker or mini doughnut pan. Use the bag to pipe the batter into circles. Sprinkle the tops with Bagel Spice blend and bake. My doughnut appliance took 4 1/2 minutes per batch. The oven method would probably need 15 minutes at 325 degrees.
When all the bagels are baked and slightly cooled, heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 20 seconds. Stir it and spoon the cheese into a sandwich bag. Use a twisty tie to close the top and cut a very small hole in one corner. Squeeze the warm cream cheese over the bagels. Top with an additional sprinkle of Bagel Spice.
