KETO LOW-CARB BAGEL BITES (HEART HEALTHY)
Keto Low-Carb Bagel Bites give you that bagel taste without the carbs. You can still slice these little babies, toast or eat plain by themselves or with butter or cream cheese. They satisfy that bagel craving! I changed the recipe to meet my “fav” flavour profile. You can do the same. You don’t need to add salt because cheese is already salty enough. The recipe calls for Everything Bagel seasoning. Instead, I use a blend of healthy seeds from the Bulk Store. Or you can simply dip the bagel bits into sesame seeds. I originally saw this recipe on TikTok by Stacey Jobe. Thanks, Stacey.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN KETO LOW-CARB BAGEL BITES?
The Keto Low-Carb Bagel Bite ingredients are:
Cream cheese: Hunt for cream cheese with zero carbs, thus reducing the overall net carbs in your bagel bite.
Mozzarella cheese: Hunt for mozzarella with zero carbs to reduce the overall net carb count. You can also use a mixture of cheeses, as long as mozzarella is one of them for that stretch-able quality.
Eggs: Use 2 small pasture-raised eggs
Everything Bagel Spice: You can substitute this seasoning with just sesame seeds or a combination of seeds you enjoy.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB BAGEL BITES?
Keto Low-Carb Bagel Bites have nutrition from all the ingredients.
Cream Cheese is a popular spread that is enjoyed on bagels, crackers, and as an ingredient in a variety of recipes. When it comes to its nutritional value, cream cheese is a good source of fat, protein, and some essential vitamins and minerals. However, it is also high in calories and saturated fat, so it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
One ounce (28 grams) of cream cheese contains approximately 99 calories, 9 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, and 1 gram of carbohydrates. It also contains small amounts of vitamins A, B12, and D, as well as calcium and phosphorus. While cream cheese does contain some beneficial nutrients, it is also high in saturated fat, which can contribute to high cholesterol levels and an increased risk of heart disease.
When incorporating cream cheese into your diet, it is important to be mindful of portion sizes and choose lower-fat options when possible. Reduced-fat and fat-free varieties of cream cheese are available and can be a healthier option. Additionally, pairing cream cheese with whole-grain bread or crackers and incorporating vegetables or fruits can help to balance out its nutritional value.
Mozzarella is a popular cheese variety that is widely used in many dishes such as pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and more. It is known for its soft and stretchy texture and mild yet tangy taste. In terms of nutritional value, mozzarella cheese is a good source of calcium, which is essential for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. It also contains protein, which is important for muscle growth and repair. However, it is also high in saturated fat and sodium, so it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. One serving of mozzarella cheese (approximately 1 ounce) contains around 85 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 6 grams of protein.
Pasture-raised eggs are known to be more nutritious than eggs from chickens raised in confined spaces. This is because the chickens are allowed to move around freely outdoors, which means that they have access to a much wider variety of nutrients. In general, pasture-raised eggs have been found to contain more vitamins A, E, and D than conventional eggs. They are also richer in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health. Additionally, pasture-raised eggs are typically lower in cholesterol and saturated fat. It’s important to note that the nutritional value of pasture-raised eggs can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the quality of the pasture and the feed that the chickens consume. However, in general, pasture-raised eggs are a great choice for anyone looking to boost their nutrient intake.
Almond flour is a highly nutritious flour made from ground almonds. It is a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour among those following a low-carbohydrate or gluten-free diet. One-quarter cup of almond flour contains approximately 160 calories, 6 grams of protein, 14 grams of fat, and only 3 grams of carbohydrates. It is also a good source of vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber. Compared to traditional wheat flour, almond flour is significantly higher in fat and lower in carbohydrates. This makes it a great option for those looking to reduce their carbohydrate intake or increase their healthy fat intake.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO LOW-CARB BAGEL BITES?
Keto Low-Carb Bagel Bites are so yummy. Of course, they don’t have that gluten-spongy quality. The bagels have a moist and flaky texture with subtle flavor. They are super tasty. You can also toast them much like a regular wheat-based bagel.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB BAGEL BITES?
For Keto Low-Carb Bagel Bites, pair the wine with the ingredients you are putting inside the bites.
- Plain Bagel Bite with Butter: Buttery Chardonnay to match the butter on the bagel.
- Bagel Bite with Cream Cheese: Crisp, dry white (Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio) to complement the tanginess in cream cheese.
- Bagel Bite BLT: Choose a white wine with good acidity. The wine’s acidity will complement the tanginess of tomato while nicely offsetting the saltiness of bacon. Think Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio
*Wine Tips: To maintain your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
CAN YOU REPLACE THE EVERYTHING BAGEL SPICE FOR SOMETHING ELSE?
You can replace the Everything Bagel Spice for any seed combination of seeds of your choice. I love chia seeds and so include them in my seed combination. I use a Super Seed Mix from the Bulk Barn that contributes lots of goodness to my bowel movements. This combination includes Golden flax seed, hulled hemp seed, and chia seed.

WHAT IS SHARI MAC’S PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION FOR YOUR KETO LOW-CARB DIET?
OMG, the Ninja NC301 CREAMi Ice Cream Maker is the BEST appliance I’ve bought for myself to support my Keto diet. I stand behind this product 100%. I eat healthy high protein, sugar-free ice cream every night. I experiment with different ingredient combinations all the time. I purchased 5 additional containers so that I can make a week’s worth of ice cream at one time. I’ve made ice cream with cottage cheese and almond milk with protein powder; tofu with almond milk and protein powder; fat-free plain yogurt with almond milk and sugar-free jello and more! The machine shaves frozen pints perfectly with its one-touch programs.. You can prepare ice cream, sorbet, gelato, milkshake, smoothie bowl, lite ice cream and more. Prep your base, freeze overnight, process, and enjoy!
Sometimes it takes more than one spin to get your desired texture. Select the re-spin function if, after processing, you want your processed treat softer and creamier. This unit is ONLY compatible with the Ninja CREAMi NC299 and NC300 pint accessories. It will NOT fit the NC100, NC200 or NC500 Series pints.
With the Ninja Creami you can enjoy healthy treats that taste just as good as regular ice cream loaded in bad saturated fat, sugar, and preservatives.
