***Please read this post before trying these!!!***
If you miss having real bread, then you’re going to love this recipe. I found it on the blog Delicious As It Looks, and it has helped me look forward to eating breakfast again. The original recipe calls for glucose syrup, but since that lists corn syrup as the only ingredient, it made me nervous. So I tried making them with different sugars.
The only on the left is made with the glucose syrup, the center is made with table sugar, and the one on the right is made with dextrose. And the one with table sugar was actually less preferable than the other two. Other than the different look of the ones on the ends, they both tasted great and were soft and fluffy.
If I eat more than one a day my digestion gets a little screwed up (that could have been the corn syrup though, I haven’t tried it with the dextrose version). I halved the original recipe so that it yields 5 bagels (after about 5 days they start to get a little hard).
You also need a doughnut pan for these, since the recipe makes something more like batter and not dough. I found mine at JoAnn Fabrics, but I’ve seen the same one a lot of places that carry baking supplies.
- 3/4 cup of blanched almond flour
- 1/3 (heaping) cup of tapioca flour/starch
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1/2 (heaping) tablespoon of dextrose
- 1/2 teaspoon of rice vinegar
Mix all the ingredients together with a hand mixer and fill 5 of the doughnut molds with batter.
Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
Time: about 20 minutes
Yield: 5 bagels
