Holy mother of bagels. Why have I not tried this recipe before? I’ll be straightforward–it’s not my own. I’ve found it all over the Web, and I have no idea who to attribute it to. I’m seriously kicking myself right now for trying this only right now and not years ago. It’s sooo easy and folks, even my bagel-loving nine year old– who I’ve banned from bagels because they’re so awful for you– ate these up in the same way she’d gobble up a bag of Lender’s.
What’s best is that these tasty bagels have just 120 calories and 1g of net carbs apiece. They’re also chock full of healthy fats, protein and fiber. Can you say yum? I used a Wilton donut pan for these. I got mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
We made both the onion and cinnamon varieties and I can say they are truly fabulous. If you want them to come out lighter in color, try using golden flax instead of traditional.
