Mornings can’t get any better than eating a bagel when you haven’t had one in a LONG long LONG time! I’ve been keeping a secret from all of you. I’ve been huddled in the kitchen day and night (in between beach time) perfecting my coconut flour baking recipes! I am proud to say I made an awesome coconut flour based banana bread, apple cinnamon coconut flour muffin, boston cream coconut flour doughnut, and many flavours of coconut flour pancakes! Out of all of that practicing I’ve been able to look at the batter and eyeball if there is enough coconut flour, get it to rise, and not taste eggy!!! I’m feeling very proud of myself.
Here is my recipe for Blueberry Bagels! The texture is not heavy like an ordinary bagel; rather it is light like a muffin. I didn’t add any extra sweetness to it either. If you prefer your blueberry bagels on the sweet, dessert side, add some extra sweetness. I enjoyed it toasted with an egg and a slice of bacon. One I ate like a muffin, pulling it apart and gobbling it up. The last one I toasted and pureed some fresh strawberries, and spread it on it like strawberry jam.
*Hint to get your bagels out of the pan easily use parchment paper! I cut a square and then made a cross in the middle.
