Paleo Cinnamon Raisin Bagels or Plain Bagels are a grain free breakfast treat that will remind you of the real thing. These came out so good and really have a “whole wheat” sort of flavor, but are completely grain free, gluten free, starch free, and nut free with dairy free options. A fantastic bagel sub for people who are on a Paleo , GAPS, or low carb diet. I gave a low carb option by swapping the raisins with freeze dried blueberries, and using a low carb sweetener option. You could also make plain bagels by leaving out the cinnamon and raisins or blueberries. You could serve them with butter, sunflower seed butter, almond butter, coconut butter, honey, or cream cheese if you eat dairy. These can also be made ahead and frozen. Left overs must be kept in fridge or freezer. These can be pan toasted or toasted in a toaster oven (most regular toasters will be too destructive for these). Hope you love these as much as my family does.
