If you want to find Heaven on earth yall here it is in bagel form! And it can be in your kitchen in just about 20 minutes. These everything cauliflower bagels are gluten free, made with cauliflower rice, and the oh so famous everything but the bagel seasoning from our beloved Trader Joes. Aka everything you could ever want in a morning (or midnight!) meal.
So you may be thinking, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And I know how much everyone loves traditional bagels (my family is from New Jersey and all my dad talks about is how great the bagels are). But in line with the intention behind a lot of my recipes, what I really love about using cauliflower rice in these is that it lightens them up.
Usually when I eat a bagel I feel really heavy afterwards because they’re just so much bread. But these don’t do that! Plus it really makes the macros more exciting to me. There are less carbs in these bagels compared to traditional bagels. And while I am not one to avoid carbs, it is important to not start your day with only carbs. So for a breakfast recipe, I am all about it. The cauliflower rice and quinoa flour bring more protein, fiber, and vitamins to this bagel so that you get a little bit of everything and start your day more balanced! That will keep you satisfied and full until lunch, while providing enough energy to get you through even the worst Monday morning.
Let’s Make Some Everything Cauliflower Bagels!
Whenever there is something particular about a recipe, or a good substitute you can make, I like to make sure I let you know! So here are a few tips, tricks, and words of advice to make sure you get the best bagels ever!
- For this recipe you want to make sure you dry out your cauliflower rice beforehand so it is not too watery. Don’t worry about getting it completely dry. A few good pats with a strong paper towel will do the trick!
- I used quinoa flour in this recipe. Honestly the main reason for this was a I saw it in Sprouts one day, thought it was really cool, and wanted to give it a try! But I am sure you could sub out for your favorite flour (just maybe not pure coconut flour because of how particular it can be) and it will be just fine! Let me know if you do!
- It is important to let the bagels cool before removing them from the donut pans! This will ensure your bagel comes out whole. I know it’s hard to wait for these guys but I promise it is worth it!
