Low Carb Pumpkin Bagels are grain free, starch free, nut free, with dairy free and paleo options. A great way to enjoy the beginning of Fall with a healthy, low carb, pumpkin bagel. These were tasty served with butter, cream cheese or coconut butter.
I do recommend refrigerating them overnight before slicing in half, and serving. It seems to make them more sturdy, and even enhances the flavors. Since I didn’t use any gums in the recipe, the refrigerating over night really helps. We did eat some before refrigerating and they were good, but a little more delicate, and a less intense flavor. You could, however, use a 1/2 tsp xanthan gum, if you tolerate it well. I didn’t use it, as I don’t always tolerate it well. I was going to post this recipe earlier, but I just was not ready for it to be October yet. Now it’s here, and I need to get organized, and ready for all the holidays. Which means a few pumpkin recipes, of course!
