Everything Bagels W/ Chive Cream Cheese (gf/df)

Who doesn’t love a good classic bagel for breakfast? I grew up on bagels (again, I’m from New York, it’s in my blood!). I really wanted to make a healthy bagel so I combined a few recipes I’ve used in the past to make this recipe, and it is definitely a winner. They have a nice crunch on the outside, soft on the inside and when you smear that cream cheese on…. Nothin’ better! Also, these bagels are husband tested and approved 😉

Servings: 4 Bagels

Ingredients for Bagels:

  • Avocado Oil
  • Everything But The Bagel Seasoning (Got it from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup GF Flour
  • 1.5 Cups Tapioca Flour/ Starch
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Non-Dairy Yogurt (Unsweetened)

Ingredients for Chive Cream Cheese:

  • 1/4 Cup Non-Dairy Yogurt (Unsweetened)
  • 1.5 Cups Raw Cashews, Soaked
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Chives, chopped.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put aside.
  2. Boil 3 cups of water in a pot or tea kettle. Put cashews in a mixing bowl, pour the hot water into the bowl and let cashews soak for 30-40 minutes. The longer they soak, the creamier the cream cheese will turn out.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, gluten free flour, tapioca flour and baking powder. Mix well to combine.
  4. Add yogurt, mix to combine.
  5. If the dough is too wet, add more GF flour. Knead until it forms a dough.
  6. Take 1/4 of the dough and form in to a ball, place on baking sheet then poke hole in middle and form the bagel shape. Do this for the remaining dough sections.
  7. Rub avocado oil on the tops of the bagels.
  8. Sprinkle Everything But The Bagel Seasoning on the bagels, and press the seasoning in gently so it sticks to the bagels.
  9. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until the edges look slightly brown.
  10. Take out and let cool while you finish the cream cheese (if you are not continuing on with this recipe to make the cream cheese, then let cool for about 5 minutes before you serve them)
  11. Drain the cashews, and put them in a food processor.
  12. Add the avocado oil, yogurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, salt and onion powder to the food processor. Scrape down sides as you blend to combine.
  13. Once done, fold in chopped chives. Taste and add more salt & onion powder if desired.
  14. Serve cream cheese with the bagels, and don’t forget…. Enjoy!
