Enjoy breakfast again with these easy, 3-ingredient grain-free bagels! They’re perfect for a GAPS-Intro, primal, or low carb diet.
Some people are eggs and bacon morning people, some people prefer cereal, some are just about a slice of toast and jam. And me? I could eat a bagel for breakfast every morning for the rest of my life and be one happy momma.
Maybe it’s just me, but nothing quite says ‘good morning’ like a freshly toasted bagel, dripping with melted butter or piled high with cream cheese. I’m not really a morning person, but that’s worth getting up for. Especially if I didn’t have to share. Which I don’t think has happened once in the last 10 years, but it’s a nice thought…
It’s a hard GAPS life.
Unfortunately, since going gluten-free, my morning bagels have been few and far between. In fact, I can probably count the time I’ve had bagel over the past 6 years on one hand! And starting the GAPS intro diet didn’t give me much hope for a future with my beloved bagels, either.
For the first few stages I ate soup for pretty much every meal, ’cause that’s just what all the cool GAPS people do. Then once I could handle eggs, I added those (yes, into the soup, but also in omelettes). When I got to those fun little nut butter and squash pancakes on stage three my breakfast game was looking up.
But I still missed my breakfast breads.
Finally stage four came and I began introducing the yummy baked goods. After I got the hang of GAPS intro muffins I got a brilliant idea: fill up my donut pan with muffin batter!
Genius, I tell you.
Not to brag, or anything, ’cause I’m really such a humble person (ha!), but these grain-free bagels turned out WONDERFULLY. No more missing bagels, my friends. I know, they’re not a perfect replica, because GAPS intro… but they’re as good as you can get! Especially after you toast them up and top them with butter.
Now, these little grain-free bagel beauties do have dairy in them. You can try using coconut yogurt or coconut cream in place of the dairy, but I haven’t tried it yet, so don’t be mad at me if it doesn’t work for you.
I’ll probably be trying it soon, though, since I’m not doing well with dairy. But until I figure that out, enjoy these delicious little grain-free bagels for breakfast!

3-Ingredient Grain-Free Bagels
Free of grain, gluten, and sugar, with dairy-free option.
- 3 eggs (organic and fresh!)
- 1/4 cup thick yogurt or sour cream (use dairy-free yogurt, if necessary)
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
Preheat oven to 350 and grease 5 wells in a donut pan. (I use this donut pan.)
Using a hand mixer, beat the eggs until they’re light and creamy. Stir in the yogurt or sour cream until smooth.
Slowly fold in the almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time.
Spoon batter evenly into prepared donut molds and bake for 20 minutes.
