Blueberry Bagels (with coconut flour and organic blueberries)

Blueberry Bagels

A few years ago one of my coworkers brought me breakfast. A breakfast that I can never forget. A giant piping hot toasted blueberry bagel overflowing with raspberry cream cheese and fresh strawberries. It was one of the best bagels I have ever eaten. The mix of berries and that perfect chewy bread make the best on the go sandwiches. I wanted to try and incorporate coconut flour to lower the gluten. Since coconut flour is know for absorbing liquid and being slightly dry I still left all purpose flour in the recipe.

These bagels are so chewy with a great sugar crust. Cinnamon and nutmeg warm up the fresh flavor of the organic blueberries. These bagels are not overly sweet so they also pair perfectly with savory sandwiches. I think they would be insanely good with bacon and eggs. Especially some delicious thick cut maple bacon.

If you do not want to use coconut flour these bagels still come out great with only all purpose flour. I definitely recommend toasting these and loading them up with your favorite ingredients! Do not be intimidated by these. Once you get the hang of bagels they are so easy to make. If you have a bread maker they are even easier. Just remember the longer you boil the dough the chewier and more dense they will become.
