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.

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.

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.

Can you freeze keto bagels?

If you want to make a large batch for later, place them in an airtight container to freeze. When you flash freeze on a baking sheet and then vacuum seal the frozen bagels, it will prevent freezer burn.

How long do keto bagels last?

The bagels will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. They should keep for at least six months if sealed well in the freezer.

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.

Notes

Thickness of bagels will depend on the size donut pan used. We used a very large size mold so the bagels did come out thin. A medium size mold would make thicker bagels.
The bagels will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. They should keep for at least six months if sealed well in the freezer.
If you don’t like the taste of onion, leave it out. Garlic is a great alternative.
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.
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.

    I never thought to make my own bagels but it’s hard to find good gluten-free, Paleo or keto bagels in the store. Have you tried this in a silicone donut pan?
