A Great Recipe for Healthy Gluten-Free

Healthy, Delicious Gluten-Free Bagels
By Elena Georgiana

Healthy, Delicious Gluten-Free Bagels

Yield: 12 Bagels
Calories: 64

If you've been following my recipes that Nick posts from time to time, you may remember that I follow a grain-free diet for the most part (by the way, Nick and his wife are strong believers and supporters of a gluten-free diet).

Even though there are more and more gluten-free options now available at the stores, they're often still loaded with other health-damaging ingredients like trans-fats, sugar, or even GMO items.

Let's face it, though...bread is delicious, and who could say "NO" to a freshly made bagel, right from the oven!

They're very hard to resist. However, as a healthy eating advocate, I decided to create a healthy version of everybody's beloved bagel...mine is gluten-free and dairy-free.

And now we can enjoy them GUILT-free!


Ingredients

1/2 cup of organic coconut flour *
2 tbsp. psyllium husk
1 tbsp. golden whole flax seeds
1 scoop unflavoured protein
1 cup egg-whites;
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda mixed with 1 tbsp. vinegar
1/8 tsp. guar gum
2 tbsp. organic coconut milk (full fat please; do NOT use diluted version, as all the goodness of it was removed) *
1 cup water
Sesame seeds and poppy seeds to sprinkle on top

How to Make Gluten-Free Bagels


Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 370 F
  • Grease a doughnut pan with a bit of coconut oil;
  • Mix all the ingredients together; ensure that there are no clumps; you could use hand mixer or any other blander of your choice
  • With a spoon spread the bagel dough into the doughnut pan (half-way or ¾) and sprinkle the top of your bagels with sesame seeds and poppy seeds, or any topping of your choice
  • Bake for 25 min or until fully baked
  • Turn oven to broil and continue baking till your bagels are golden (it takes me about 3 min max in my gas oven).

How to Make Gluten-Free Bagels

(Note: if you don't have a doughnut pan, you may be able to find out at an arts and crafts store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. You can also use a mini-Angel cake pain, if necessary)

* It's a common misconception that saturated fats are bad for you...saturated fats can be very good for you (from natural sources of course). They are not only necessary for important healthy physical function, but also for hormone production, cell membranes, your immune system, brain, nerves and more. Saturated fat that comes from coconut milk, coconut flour, and coconut oil...it's actually one the healthiest fat source on a planet.

However, the media, the big food industry, and doctors spend millions of dollars every year trying to convince all of us that saturated fats are "fattening" and that you should avoid them if you want to lose belly fat.

 

Here is what our trusted Food Investigator Nick Pineault tells us about the saturated fats in his excellent book "The Truth About Fat-Burning Foods"), which I call the Food Bible (I call it this way, as it is truly a Bible that everybody should have as a guide to healthy living):


"Don't fall for it. It's just another nutrition myth that prevents you from eating some of the BEST fat burning foods on the planet. In fact, the RIGHT kind of saturated fat is actually good for you and can even help you lose belly fat. Recent studies actually prove that saturated fat REDUCES your risk of heart disease and supports weight loss."

Nick's excellent book "The TRUTH About Fat Burning Foods" will transform your kitchen and reprogram your metabolism to use fat as a fuel source FIRST, in as little as 24 hours... I own this book, and I often use it as a reference when I'm unsure about certain ingredients.
