Let me just come right out and say it, these are not your traditional New York Style bagels. They have no yeast so they don’t need to rise, they don’t need to be kneaded and rolled out, and they are not boiled. All you have to do is mix the dry and wet ingredients and simply press the dough into a donut pan and baked. They’re that simple! I wanted to make a really quick and easy grain-free bagel recipe. By leaving out some of the traditional steps, I accomplished that goal.

I absolutely love the taste and texture of these bagels. Both Cassava Flour and Almond Flour have unique savory tastes. They come together so nicely in this bagel. Cassava flour has a very soft texture while almond flour is a bit mealy. By combining the two you get a bagel that is soft like bread with a whole grain like chew. To learn more about baking with cassava flour check out my post, Grain Free Biscuits & How to Use Cassava Flour. In that post, I talk about why not all cassava flour is created equal. The quality really does matter. That’s why I use Otto’s Cassava Flour in these paleo bagels.

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons ground flax
  • 9 tablespoons warm water
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened dairy free milk
  • 1/4 cup oil


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your donut baking pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix your ground flax and water together. Set aside to thicken while you prepare the rest of your ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all your dry ingredients together. In a separate large bowl whisk your dairy free milk and oil together. Add your thickened flax mixture to your wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and pour in your wet ingredients. Mix very well. You can’t overmix.
  • Press the mixture into your donut baking pan and top with your choice of toppings. I topped mine with some Everything But the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s. You can also top with other toppings like sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, dried onion, dried garlic, coarse salt, etc.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden and no longer wet to the touch. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out dry. Let cool completely before slicing with a sharp knife. They will slice without crumbling or falling apart but they need to be completely cool before slicing.


These bagels can be reheated by slicing and toasting.
Grain Free Baking Powder: Here’s a good article by Kinsey Jackon on baking powder. While the traditional baking powder is not paleo friendly or grain free, Kinsey provides an easy recipe to make your own grain-free baking powder.

I can not eat almonds. Do you have a suggestion for a different flour I could substitute?

Emily Meyer August 24, 2022 - 5:17 am

You could try oat flour. They both of a similar fluffy texture.

Easy and delicious! And low glycemic, which is very welcome. GF bagels are so expensive, I’m stoked to have this quick at-home option. It’ll be fun to try different flavored toppings with the kids.
