Cauliflower Everything Bagel Bites

Remember bagel bites? Oh my gosh. I remember going to a friend’s house when I was growing up in the 90s and her mom was a bagel bite queen and always had them on hand. They were the best! I definitely didn’t think that I’d have anything similar to them after changing my diet, but this reimagined version is seriously tasty!

These cauliflower everything bagel bites are made with minimal ingredients and topped with everything bagel seasoning to really round out the bagel flavor! They’re perfect for snacking or pairing with a side for a fun breakfast.

How to make Cauliflower Everything Bagel Bites

  • Pour the cauliflower rice in a bowl along with the coconut flour, baking soda, and avocado oil. Stir to combine.
  • Stir in the eggs (see below for gelatin egg instructions) and mix well. Add 1-2 tbsp more coconut flour if the mixture is too wet.
  • Immediately begin forming the mixture into small, slightly flattened circles. Use your index finger to carefully make a hole in the center of the bagel bites (optional), then form the bagel bites and smooth out any cracks. Top with everything bagel seasoning until evenly coated.
  • Transfer the bagel bites to the oven and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

Everything Bagel Bites

How to serve the cauliflower everything bagel bites

  • Serve as a finger food snack for game day, movie night or after school snacks
  • Serve as a side for a breakfast with something like scrambled eggs and fruit

Can you make these as full-size bagels and slice them in half?

I think this recipe works best as bagel bites! It can more easily fall apart as a full-size bagel, so making them smaller helps keep them together. They wouldn’t be best for slicing in half, but you can for sure top them with something like a cream cheese of your choice of smoked salmon.

Can you make this egg-free?

You can make them with a gelatin egg, but they’re a bit more delicate. You may have to wind up adding more coconut flour depending on how absorbant your coconut flour is.

Can you use frozen cauliflower rice?

Yes, but make sure that it’s fully defrosted and to be careful of any excess water.

 

The Ingredients You’ll Need

Riced cauliflower

You can use either pre-riced or rice your own in a food processor.

Coconut flour

Coconut flour is super absorbent and helps to offset the moisture of the cauliflower. I have not tried other flours and cannot guarantee they would work.

Bagel seasoning

This seasoning is super popular these days and easy to find in the spice aisle or online. You can also make your own AIP version which is detailed in the recipe.

Description

These cauliflower everything bagel bites are the perfect snack or fun breakfast! They’re low carb, paleo, and keto-friendly.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups riced cauliflower (pre-riced, or using a food processor)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour (see notes)
  • 2 eggs (see notes for AIP gelatin egg)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 12 tbsp everything bagel seasoning

AIP everything bagel seasoning (AIP option)

  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tbsp dried garlic granules
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper that’s very lightly greased with oil.
  2. Pour the cauliflower rice in a bowl along with the coconut flour, baking soda, and avocado oil. Stir to combine.
  3. Stir in the eggs (see below for gelatin egg instructions) and mix well. Add 1-2 tbsp more coconut flour if the mixture is too wet.
  4. Immediately begin forming the mixture into small, slightly flattened circles (you’ll have about 8-9). Use your index finger to carefully make a hole in the center of the bagel bites (optional) then form the bagel bites and smooth out any cracks.
  5. Top with everything bagel seasoning until evenly coated.
  6. Transfer the bagel bites to the oven and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

Notes

For the gelatin egg, pour 1/2 cup of water into a small saucepan and evenly sprinkle 2 tbsp of the gelatin over the water. Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes to allow to harden. Place on the stovetop set to low heat until the mixture comes to liquid. Remove from heat. Use a whisk or milk frother to blend the gelatin mixture until frothy. Immediately add to the mixture and stir to combine.

I find that all coconut flours have different absorbancy levels. Add 1-2 tbsp more of the coconut flour is the mixture is too wet.
