Gluten-free Bagels is one of the recipes I am most excited about because I LOVE bagels. I repeat, I LOVE BAGELS. But, bagels don’t love my blood sugar. These nutty bagels not only help keep blood sugar levels in check, but they are both gluten- and dairy-free while being high in fiber and low in sodium.

Cooking with coconut flour does require some modifications to original recipes, but nothing too crazy. While it can’t be used in a 1:1 ratio of substitute for wheat flour, the proper conversion is typically 1/4 -1/3 cup of coconut flour for each cup of wheat flour. It’s important to remember that coconut flour is high absorbent, meaning that it requires more moisture from ingredients such as eggs or oils.
Coconut flour is also a great source of MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) which have been used in a lot in helping to manage conditions such as diabetes and heart disease because they promote stabilization of blood sugar as well as an improved immune system and good digestion.

Finally, when you are making your nutty bagels, feel free to easily swap out the poppy seeds for sesame seeds, asiago cheese, cinnamon, or even our favorite, “Trader Joe’s Everything but The Bagel Seasoning” to make your very own stellar bagel variety pack.
