Low Carb Bagels – Coconut Flour Fat Head Dough
The mushrooms caused nausea, vomiting, and dizziness and the ill diners were treated at the Bo'ai Hospital and the Hospital of the People's Liberation Army. We were so excited to bite into one. They were a tiny bit flatter than I would have liked but I think I flattened them too much before baking. Mis well and cook over medium heat. Taste just like cheesecake filling. In the egg mixture, I used almond milk, eggs, egg whites, cinnamon and protein powder!

Over factories were responsible for the production of the formula and Chinese officials seized 2, bags of fake formula by mid-April. Within three days of ingesting the formula, the babies suffered from what Chinese doctors described as "big head disease," since the babies' heads swelled while their bodies became thinner from malnourishment. The government promised to compensate families and help cover medical bills.

Most of the victims were rural families. The labels on the pickled vegetables that was supposed to indicate the chemical content were also found to be inaccurate. In Sichuan, the factories had been using industrial-grade salt to pickle the vegetables and had been spraying pesticides containing high amounts of DDVP on the pickled vegetables before shipment. In spring , four men died of alcohol poisoning in Guangdong and eight other men were hospitalized in the People's Hospital of Guangzhou.

Two other men, one a migrant worker, died the previous night in Zhongluotan in Hunan. Authorities in the local health department suspected that the makers of the fake liquor blended industrial alcohol and rice wine , and closed several unlicensed liquor manufacturers. Stories began circulating in the press about cheap soy sauces made from human hair. These sauces were manufactured in China using a chemical amino acid extraction process similar to artificially hydrolyzed soy sauces and then quietly exported to other countries.

An investigative report that aired on Chinese television exposed the unsanitary and potentially contaminated sources of the hair:. In response, the Chinese government banned production of soy sauces made from hair. Other carcinogens remain; see 3-MCPD. In , China banned food manufacturers from using Sudan I red dye to color their products.

China followed a number of other developed nations in banning the dye due to its links to cancer and other negative health effects. In Beijing, the Heinz Company added the red dye to chili sauce ; in Guangdong , Zhejiang , Hunan , and Fujian , the red dye was discovered in vegetables and noodles. Before the year , companies in China had been using Sudan I illegally, and government officials gave two reasons why the ban had not been adequately enforced.

The first reason was that there were too many agencies overseeing food production, creating loopholes and inefficiency. The second reason was that the government agencies were not equipped or trained with the food testing equipment that could have detected the dye earlier.

Officials announced that they would begin to reform the food safety system on national and local levels. The State Food and Drug Administration reported that their officials had resolved 14 cases involving fake drugs and 17 cases involving "health accidents" at drug manufacturing facilities. In July, , six people died and 80 more became sick after ingesting an antibiotic with disinfectant as an ingredient.

On September 1, , more than students at Chongzhou Experimental Primary School in Chongzhou , Sichuan got food poisoning after lunch. Of those, approximately students had to be hospitalized due to headaches, fevers, vomiting, and diarrhea. The school was temporarily closed for an investigation.

The Ministry of Education ordered an investigation, and officials suspected that the cause of the food poisoning was unsanitary conditions at the schools. During summer vacation, the schools had not been cleaned or disinfected, and the pupils might have been exposed to unsanitary food or drinking water when they returned in September. In late , officials in Shanghai and Beijing discovered illegal amounts of chemicals in turbot.

Currently, China's annual output is 40, tons. Since turbot have weak immune systems, some farmers use prohibited drugs to maintain their productivity, as their fish-farming technologies are not sufficient to prevent disease. Other cities, including Hangzhou , Zhejiang , have begun testing turbot fish and banning the turbot shipped from Shandong.

Many restaurants in Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong stopped purchasing turbot after officials discovered the high amounts of illegal antibiotics. John Chapple, manager of Sinoanalytica, a Qingdao-based food analysis laboratory, supplemented Greenpeace's information.

He was not surprised by the findings and explained that farmers in China have little knowledge of correct pesticide use. In June, July, and August , the Shuguo Yanyi Restaurant in Beijing served raw Amazonian snail meat and, as a result, 70 diners were diagnosed with angiostrongylus meningitis. The snail meat contained Angiostrongylus cantonesis , "a parasite that harms people's nervous system" causing headaches, vomiting, stiff necks, and fevers.

However, the Beijing Municipal Office of Health prohibited restaurants from serving raw or half-cooked snails and disciplined the Shuguo Yanyi Restaurant. The Beijing Friendship Hospital, where the first meningitis case was treated, began a program to educate doctors on the treatment of angiostrongylus meningitis.

Again thank you for the great recipe to keep us all on the LC track as well as everyone else sharing their ideas!!! You could try adding more mozzarella but no guarantee. Just an addendum to my comment a few moments ago. I looked it up and found that Rumford does make a low sodium baking powder, and it would be worth purchasing the next time Intry your recipe. I think this change will rectify the overwhelmingly salty taste of the bagel. Just took these out of the oven. Made these exactly as written, using Rumford aluminum free baking powder.

You do mention to use unsalted butter to decrease that salty taste. But the entire recipe calls for only 2 Tbs. It is really good, but has salt in it too. They looked good coming out of oven, especially using the mold that i got on Amazon.

But a bit too salty overall. I wonder if there is a low sodium baking powder on the market. They sliced decently, I toasted half of one and the texture is not too bad. Going to try one with eggs for breakfast. If i make them again, will definitely lower the salt wherever i can and see if that helps.

Your recipe is better, but still needs some sodium tweaking. Thank you for sharing it! I used my finger to depress a slight hole in the center, not really intending for them to have a hole like a bagel.

I started the baking temperature below degrees but in last 10 minutes the oven did reach that full temp. Baked 20 minutes total until browned on top and bottom. Cooled and cut into 4 large squares and then sliced like a bun. They came out in the shape of a square foccacia bun, and had a nice dense chewy texture.

Many thanks for a low carb bread recipe that works and tastes good. I made these for breakfast this morning. They were SO good! My husband loved them, too! So many possibilities… Thank you!! I do think it would be the best way for them to have a better bagel shape. If i were to do it with coconut flour would i use the same quantity — 1 cup Or would i use less?

Read more at https: However, usually you also need to increase eggs and or liquid as well. Next time will add a bit of nutritional yeast for an extra cheesy flavour. I need to try that! My 3 year old has autism, and he has become a very picky eater. As soon as he saw these bagels cooling on the counter, he reached for one and gobbled it up!

This is such a win for us, since I have been looking to eliminate bread from his diet. My husband loves them as well, as do I! Thank you, thank you, thank you! My niece has autism too and I do believe cutting out gluten is especially important for that. I just made these and they turned out AMAZING I split my dough and put asaigo cheese in one and cinnamon and vanilla, carmel stevia in the other and they turned out so good and I guess because I added those extras I was able to make 10 bagels instead of 6.

Some regular bagel recipes would dip the formed shapes in boiling baking soda water to get it to puff up and then bake to brown and crisp it. These are amazing and delicious.. Thank you so very much!!!! I added chives and bacon. Thank you so much for the yummy recipe! In the past I tried similar recipes that used almond flour, and even used different brands but could never get over the almond flour taste.

This coconut flour one is perfect! Based on some of the other reviews I always add an extra tablespoon of butter. I bake in a cupcake pan, for the perfect sized small muffins. They are so much heartier and more bread like than oopsie bread. I have this old recipe that uses a bread recipe in donut molds. My wife and I are so happy to have something to satisfy our bread cravings.

I made these last night. They looked like the picture but were flatter than I expected. Smelled good baking so I was a little disappointed with the taste. I found that using a blend of almond and coconut flour rises better and some like the taste better. Not sure what I did wrong I followed the recipe!

Any suggestions on how to fix this for next time? It is tough to work the dough even when the mozzarella is melted. But, you should have more than a little noticeable mozzarella in the bagel. Use your hands and squeeze the cheese through the dough like making sausage. Its coconut flour so you wont have to worry about the dough getting tough. You are a genius — I can hardly wait to get to the store for cheese!!! Thank you so much, Lisa! I just made these for the first time.

Everything seemed to go well no problem until they came out of the oven. A couple spread too much so the hole covered in centre and a couple flattened. One came out perfect. The taste is amazing. I measured everything perfectly but put a few more grams of butter. I was scared they would be dry.

This recipe turned out amazing. It saved me from giving into my bread cravings and I was able to stick to my keto diet because of it. This was a lifesaver! I also added more butter, probably next time will add even more! I divided the dough up a bit more, made some of them into thick, round patties to be split in half for flavored cream cheese like a regular bagel, no hole and easier to shape!

Mine are only 2. What is this under on the my fitness pal app? Also great work, Angela and i made them, delicious! Congratulations for your amazing recipe. Greetings from Greece, love your recipes!!! I made these and added some asiago cheese and they turned out delicious! They were a tiny bit flatter than I would have liked but I think I flattened them too much before baking.

They spread more than I expected so if I had left the higher before baking I think they would have turned out perfect! I like dairy but thats to much. I am cannot wait to try! Can you explain further why you use 2 duck eggs rather than 3 eggs. I have both available to me from my son. I thought duck eggs have more white not less? Just trying to figure out so can try myself. I am in NC and want to compare since stated elevation can affect recipe.

I made these both ways today and they came out perfect! I doubled this dough…worked perfectly. This dough is the holy grail of low carb dough! Awesome bread , I cant beleive it! Something to soread butter or cream cheese on or eggs and sausage. I do not bake much so what would make them raise more , I dont care that mine turned out a little flat because it worked great for a flat bun! I am just curious as to what i may have done wrong? The baking powder or baking soda helps with rise.

However, using too much adversely impacts the taste. This recipe was amazing! I made some mistakes I think i should have cooked the cheeses longer and I hand kneaded it instead of rolling it but they came out fantastic! I can barely taste the coconut flour and the texture tastes JUST like bread. This recipe was also very easy to make! Definitely going to keep it around in my house. This recipe is perfect! I only made a half batch because I had only a little less than half of Mozzarella in my fridge, measured it by the gram, and added a bit of an Italian cheese blend I had-and used two eggs for that which still worked perfectly.

Thank you so much for this recipe. Oh my, I loved lived this bagel recipe!!! I loved bread a lot before I started my Keto diet less than two mths ago. Oh I think I will be addicted to this bread recipe. Thanks for the idea! Now I just need to see where goat cream cheese is sold in my area.

I just made these with cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella. They rose really well in the oven, but once i pulled them out, they went flat as a tack! Too flat to slice and put butter in. What did i do wrong? The rise comes from the eggs and baking powder. It might help to beat the eggs first before adding. Results can vary depending on elevation too. I ended up using cheddar cheese since I was out of mozzarella. Thank you for the recipe!

It is my second time making these in two days They are amazing! Perfect for sandwiches too. I followed the recipe to a T and everything was perfect. I found I could still taste a hint of coconut so next time I will do more seasoning in the dough, maybe some cheddar too, but once you add toppings it not noticeable at all! Grind the oatmeal in a blender or food processor. Put the ground oats in a bowl and mix with the rest of the ingredients. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat.

Add the batter to the skillet and cook on both sides until golden brown. Enjoy with your favorite low calorie syrup, or sliced berries. What is your favorite protein powder recipe?

Peel only the yellow rind off two lemons using a sharp pearling knife, leave as much of the white pith intact the bioflavonoids in the white are an important, healing component of the drink. Slice each lemon into four chunks, take out the seeds and throw lemon pieces into your blender with 3 cups of water.

Quite a bit of stevia is required to combat the strong flavors of lemon pith and turmeric and to balance out the Celtic Sea Salt.

There is already some preliminary evidence that cranberry may help protect us from stomach ulcers in this way.

Whole cranberries consumed in dietary form—in comparison with purified cranberry extracts consumed in either liquid or dried supplement form—do a better job of protecting our cardiovascular system and our liver.

This synergy is only found in the whole berry as consumed in food form. This rule about whole dietary intake appears to apply to the antioxidant benefits, anti-inflammatory benefits, and anti-cancer benefits of cranberry. An adrenal healer, cancer fighter and slimming sipper. It is 2 quarts of sustaining liquid, low in calories but dense in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The first reason this shake is a fat burner is because it is laced with turmeric. Turmeric intake is directly associated with increased healthy fat loss and decreased insulin.

Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms actively fight against obesity. These cells produce cytokine molecules that inflame the organs of the body. The inclusion of lemon in the Singing Canary adds strength to its weight loss abilities by reducing hunger.

Lemons also control blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of sugar into the body. The inclusion of the therapeutic grade, lemon essential oil kicks this up an extra notch.
