I love a freshly toasted bagel with cream cheese. In college, I loved Einstein Bagels so much I would study over there enjoying my bagel and a hot drink on snowy days for hours.
But over the years, I learned a gluten-bagel and cream cheese just don’t love me back. And these days a traditional bagel is not even an option for my Celiac husband. Thank goodness for healthier, allergy-free alternatives!
The beginning of school is not months or weeks away, but days away now. As my daughter approaches her first full day of school in 1st Grade, I want to make sure I am prepared ahead of time with lots of fulfilling and nourishing breakfast and lunch recipes.
These bagels are a new favorite at our house, toasted and topped with either grass-fed ghee, butter, eggs or jam. I plan to make a large batch a few times a month to have on hand for a great lunch sandwich base.
Feel free to top with chia, poppy and/or sunflower seeds for a tasty topping. I am going to try adding all three seeds with a little garlic and onion powder soon to see if I can re-create my beloved “Everything Bagel.”
