Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I get tired of eating eggs so I am always looking for other Keto breakfast recipes.

When you’re following a keto lifestyle, there’s not as many choices to choose from so I am always excited when I find a new recipe that I love.

These keto bagels are one of my go-to favorites because you can customize them so many different ways. They even taste good for those who aren’t following keto guidelines.

I enjoy making Keto deviled eggs and Keto nacho chips. They both make great keto lunch ideas.

Common Questions About Keto Bagels

What Are Keto Bagels Made of?

Traditional bagels are high in carbs. However, these use ingredients that aren’t normally keto-friendly. Almond flour and Mozzarella cheese help to make keto bagels low carb and delicious.

Do Keto Bagels Need to Be Refrigerated?

I do not put my low carb onion bagels in the fridge but it wouldn't hurt if you did. I keep mine in the pantry until I am ready to use them. If you aren't able to eat them fast enough, I recommend putting them in the freezer.
