This homemade onion flavored keto coconut flour bagels recipe is super easy to make. They are a great way to start your morning if you’ve gone low-carb and gluten-free!
Bagels have always been a favorite food of mine. I used to eat so many growing up that my mom would tell me that I was going to turn into a bagel. Spoiler alert: I am still human despite basically living off bagels.
In addition to loving bagels, I absolutely love onion. I throw onion into everything I make. So it’s no surprise that I love these keto onion bagels! The best part is, they’re gluten-free too! My boyfriend and I both love this recipe. He loves to serve them up with cream cheese, while I like to smother mine in Smart Balance.
You only need five ingredients to make these tasty keto-friendly onion bagels.
How to Make Keto Onion Bagels
There’s only a few simple steps needed to make this easy quick bread recipe. After making the batter, it’s piped into donut molds and then baked until brown.
Combine Dry Ingredients
In small bowl, mix flax meal, coconut flour, baking powder, and onion.
Add To Eggs
Beat the egg whites with electric mixer until light and foamy. Slowly whisk in the yolks then add the dry mixture. Allow the batter to sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
Bake To Golden
Spoon into “donut” mold. Sprinkle additional dried onion on top of each bagel, if desired. Bake for 30 minutes until bagels become golden brown. Allow to cool in the oven.
Tips and Tricks
- Omit the onion for other flavors. If you don’t like the taste of onion, leave it out. Garlic is a great alternative for bagels.
- Sprinkle seeds on top before baking. A sprinkling of everything bagel seed mix adds flavor and texture. Or just sprinkle on some sesame or poppy seeds.
- Change the size. Bake in a mini donut pan for bite-sized or double the batter for thicker large bagels.
The best way to serve these low-carb bagels is to toast them and spread on butter or cream cheese. However, you can take them up a notch by spreading on tirokafteri, a Greek feta cheese dip, instead.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do keto bagels need to be refrigerated?
You don’t have to refrigerate them, but they will last twice as long if you do. Refrigeration is recommended if the room is humid.

Will the recipe work for keto everything bagels?
To make keto everything bagels, you can omit the onion and add some everything bagel seasoning. You can also replace the flaxmeal with psyllium husk for a more neutral taste.
