Dough

3 cups shredded mozzarella

1.5 cups almond flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)

2 tsp xantham gum (Bob's Red Mill again)

4 Tbsp. cream cheese

2 eggs

Toppings (to taste)

Sesame seeds

Poppy seeds

Onion Powder

Garlic Powder

I put butter on top of one of the bagels as a test to see if it would help keep the seeds/flavouring on top and it seemed to work well, I will do it again for all of them the next time I do it.

Preparation Preheat oven to 400 In a bowl mix the almond flour, xantham gum, and eggs until combined Place mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium pot and cook on low heated until melted Once the cheese is melted, combine with the other mixture. Knead until thoroughly combined (you will need a mixer, the flour, eggs and xantham powder get really hard to mix after a little bit) Roll the dough into log shapes and rest them into your donut pan (I did not use a donut pan, here you will see what they looked like before I stuck them in the oven, and how you might want to shape them), then sprinkle your toppings Bake for 18 minutes

I made 6 bagels and kept them in the fridge. I can't tell you how amazing these were. I will be experimenting to make other bread-like products so I will post once I make a new batch!

MACROS

I believe these are correct from my calculations, but don't hesitate to double check it yourself! I added them to MFP under "Homemade - Mozzarella Almond Flour Keto Bagel, 1 Bagel" (I'm new to the app so if you can't search it just let me know)

Ok. Some of these are bound to be more successful than others. 😐Although it LOOKS pretty, and tasted ok... I'm reminded that I do, in fact, loathe stevia.
Sticking with erythritol if I need sweetener from here on out, I need to pick up some Swerve

Here's the recipe: Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Pie

Crust:

40g (1/2 cup) almond flour
52g (1/2 cup) finely chopped pecans
25g (2 TBSP) butter, melted
26g (2 TBSP) Erythritol

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients and press dough into bottom of a springform pan (I don't have one so I used a foil-lined round cake pan) Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Place in freezer to cool

Chocolate layer:

8oz cream cheese, room temp
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
27g unsweetened bakers Chocolate
25g butter
4 squirts liquid stevia 👎 (yuck)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Melt butter and chocolate in microwave, stirring frequently. Place cream cheese, vanilla and chocolate mixture in medium bowl, beat on medium speed with electric mixer until fluffy and smooth. Add desired sweetener to taste (I'm using erythritol next time) Add in heavy cream and beat until fluffy. Pour over crust and spread evenly.

Whipped Cream layer:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp erythritol

Beat ingredients together with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Spread evenly over chocolate layer.
Dust with unsweetened chocolate powder and chill for 4 hours. Heat knife under running hot water and clean between cuts for pretty edges and serve.
