Skinnytaste Bagels

Eating gluten free AND low carb, I miss two things the most.  Bagels and brownies.  Okay and sometimes, donuts.

Now I can cross one item off my list.  Bagels have arrived at our home, fresh from our oven.  Using this recipe from Skinnytaste.  I have now made them twice.

First time, seasoned with Trader Joe’s “Everything But the Bagel” Seasoning.

Now, just to say, I think we are the only ones who DON’T love this Seasoning.  We are giving our bottle to a friend.

Second time I made these, I read the post again.  First time, I caught that with gluten free flour, I should up the baking powder to 2 tsp.  Second time I read the post, I read that I should knead the dough.  First time I have ever kneaded gluten free dough, but I did it.  It made a puffier Bagel.  I also realized they are a bigger bagel if you let the dough sit for a few minutes after placing on a baking sheet or in a donut pan.

These bagels were sprinkled with sesame seeds, which I found out after I made them, are SpecialK’s first choice.  Who knew?

At separate points, SpecialK and I shared the same thought, that this would make a great pizza dough.  His idea: some day, we will have carb free breakfast, and share a pizza.

How can I post bagels, and maybe pizza and claim to be low carb?  The recipe says make 4 bagels.  I make them in my donut pan, and I make 6.  All totaled up, one bagel is the same number of carbs as I am allowed for one serving.

What have you been making?
