Yields6 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time17 minsTotal Time27 mins

Ingredients
 6 oz full-fat shredded mozzarella
 2 oz full-fat cream cheese
 1 whole pasture raised egg
 1 cup blanched almond flour
 ¼ cup coconut flour
 1 tbsp baking soda
 ½ tsp xanthan gum
 ¼ tsp pink Himalayan seas salt
-Toppings (per bagel bite)
 5 peperonis
 2 tbsp no-added sugar marinara
 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
 1 oz full-fat shredded mozzarella

Directions
1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2

In a food processor add the dry ingredients and pulse until combined, including the mozzarella. Add the cream cheese to the microwave for 30 second intervals, until melted. Place in the food processor along with the egg and process until a dough is formed. This will be wetter than a more typical dough.

3

Remove the dough from the food processor, using a spatula to scrape the processor, and place on a scale to weigh it out in grams. Divide this number by 6 and split the dough into 6 equal portions.

4

Wet your hands, and begin shaping into a uniform ball like when making meatballs. Take a wet finger and poke it through the center of the ball gently. Moving your finger around slightly begin widening the hole.

5

Once the bagel is formed, place on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and layer the toppings like on a pizza. Place bake in the oven on broil until the cheese is nice and melty! Let cool and enjoy!
