When I went grain-free, I thought my love affair with bagels had come to an end. But then I came up with this recipe! – Elana Amsterdam

  • Coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups blanched-almond flour (not almond meal)
  • 1/4 cup golden flax meal
  • 1 tbs. coconut flour, plus more for dusting the pan
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. celtic sea salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 tbs. apple-cider vinegar
  • 1 tbs. poppy seeds (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a doughnut mold with coconut oil and dust with coconut flour.
In a food processor, pulse together almond flour, flax meal, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Add eggs and vinegar and pulse until thoroughly combined.
Place the batter in a resealable plastic bag, snip off one corner, and pipe the batter into your prepared pan. Sprinkle bagels with poppy seeds.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes, until a knife inserted into the thickest part of a bagel comes out clean. Let the bagels cool in the pan for one hour before serving.
For a perfect texture, leave your cooked bagels out at room temperature overnight. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days.
