When you're craving an everything bagel but you have protein goals to hit, these flourless gluten free protein bagels are everything! ;) Easy high protein breakfast here!
When I first bought this donut pan, I kept thinking it would be great for bagels. And I was right! :) But as a New York City girl, I need to put a disclaimer on this recipe. These aren't comparable to the big, doughy New York City bagels. I mean, c'mon, this isn't magic; it's protein baking. However, if you're trying to hit specific macros and want the taste of an everything bagel, this is your recipe!

- egg whites
- Quest Multi-Purpose Mix protein powder or other unflavored whey/casein blend
- almond flour
- baking powder
- sea salt (or regular salt)
- brown rice flour
- everything bagel topping
- non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
Except for the topping, mix all ingredients until combined.
Spoon batter into a ziplock bag, and cut off the corner (if you want to pipe the batter into the donut pan).
Spray the silicone donut/bagel pan with non-stick cooking spray (to simulate the crispier bagel surface).
Pipe (or spoon) batter into pan.
Spray top of bagels with more non-stick spray.
Spoon 1 teaspoon topping on each bagel.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, just until firm. Don't over-bake!
Enjoy! Store extras in the refrigerator.
This recipe was specifically made for the whey/casein blend used here. It is important to note that using whey protein powder in its place won't work! The two types of protein powder bake very differently. If you only have whey protein on hand, use this recipe for Blueberry Bagels as a base recipe.
Cinnamon raisin bagels? Blueberry bagels? Any kind of flavored bagel work well here!
You'll need a donut/bagel pan. I like this silicone donut pan because it doesn't have fillers (it is LFGB quality), and protein batters tend to stick less to silicone than to metal pans.
I suggest using an oven thermometer so you can see when your oven is actually preheated, and that it is to the right temperature.
Of course, you're also going to need a mixing bowl. I love this mixing bowl set from Target because it is super easy to clean, dries quickly, and the bowls have rubber on the bottom so they don't slide.
If you want to pipe the batter into the donut pan, you can use a ziplock bag or piping bag. I love these piping bags. They are made of a smooth plastic that doesn't stick to itself or to your bowl scraper as you push the batter down the bag.
And I strongly encourage you to measure ingredients with a kitchen scale instead of volume measurements.
Store extra bagels in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
