With the holidays upon us, I wanted to have some options for breakfast that would not derail my progress. I have seen Keto Bagels on Instagram and had to give them a try.
I absolutely love the ketogenic diet and have had great success since starting back
I did not think I was that much of a bread person - until I stopped eating it! It was one of those mindless side dishes I always grabbed and never really thought about.

First, let me just say these do not have the exact texture or consistency of real bagels. They are a bit heavier but have much more flavor.
In the past I could easily polish off an entire bagel... with these, I can only eat half... especially once I cover it with butter and cream cheese... did I mention I love keto!?
The outsides get nice and crunchy while the inside stays soft - so perfect! You can even toast them to melt the cheese on top!
I plan to make a couple batches of these to keep in the freezer to pull out Christmas morning. Since everyone comes to our house and my family often asks about the keto diet, I think this is a perfect way to show them that you can just make a few modifications to the food you already love and still be successful. Total win-win!
