Recipe Review: Vegan Keto Bagel (Meat Free Keto)

These little bagels are oddly delicious, as you begin to mix u the ingredients, you don't think they are going to turn out (and they do seem a little greasy as you mix them). But I really enjoyed the creamy flavour and the dense, chewy texture.  They are also full of fibre so they are pretty satisfying.  Because the base of these bagels are tahini and flax, they do have a slightly earthy, savoury flavour - but I found them great topped with peanut butter, and as a bun for a sandwich. 

This recipe makes two servings, but I would recommend making an extra batch.  Keep in mind, these do take time to bake (about 40 minutes), so you may want to make them ahead of time but they store well in a well sealed container.

OatFree Hot Cereal (Gluten Free, Vegan)

This is a great option for anyone who needs to follow a gluten free diet, psyllium husk is gluten free and gives this cereal a great texture!  Psyllium husk is rally high in soluble fibre, so it makes it really filling as well, and as a bonus psyllium is great for regularity (for those with IBS-D it may help you out!) and cholesterol lowering. 

  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (I used Vega Sport)

  • 4 tbsp psyllium husk

  • 1/2 cup plant milk (unsweetened)

  • Optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder, frozen fruit

Mix protein powder with enough water (or milk) to form a paste. Add to the bowl the psyllium husk and milk. Mix well and let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes (mixing occassionally), adding more liquid as needed. Serve with toppings of choice.
