Buttery Blend Protein Bagels
- 1 scoop Buttery Blend Protein Powder Supplement
- 2 TBSP coconut flour
- 2 TBSP almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp Everything Bagel Seasoning
- 1 egg
- ½ C (122g) liquid egg whites (4-5 whites)
- 2 TBSP water
Preheat oven to 350. Apply non-stick spray/oil to 4 wells of donut baking pan with full-size (3.5” across) wells. If using a silicone baking pan, place on a firm baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix together dry ingredients and set aside. Because bagels and buns are often paired with savory ingredients, the seasonings you choose should be complementary to the ingredients you plan to serve with it. A good starting place is ½ teaspoon of granulated garlic. Italian seasoning is an easy choice, but feel free to switch it up. Dill is delicious, as are latin-inspired spices like cumin and chili powder. Crushed red pepper flakes are a great way to add a little kick
If desired, consider mix-ins or toppings, like cheddar, parmesan or asiago cheese. Chopped sun-dried tomato, chopped dehydrated onion, bacon bits, roasted garlic and even jalapenos make great additions. Sesame seeds or a bit of cornmeal are popular toppings for buns. However, keep in mind that additional ingredients do add to the calorie/macro count.
In a separate bowl, whisk together liquids until well blended. Add dry ingredients to liquids and mix well. Quickly pour into prepared donut pan and bake until cooked through, approximately 18 minutes. Tops will spring back when lightly touched.
Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes on cooling rack. If using a silicone pan, run a small spatula gently around the edges to release the bread from the pan. Remove from pan and allow to cool. Once cool, slice and store in fridge.
*Bagels/buns taste best when toasted lightly before serving. Use as a bun for sandwiches and burgers or spread with cream cheese, seasoned greek yogurt or hummus for a delicious snack.
*Consider making up small zip-top bags containing already-measured dry ingredients. Having mixes at the ready makes it possible to throw the batter together in less time than it takes to preheat the oven! This recipe also doubles nicely, making it ideal for meal prep.
