Poppy & Sesame Seed Cauliflower Bagels + Recipe

cauliflower bagels recipe

I’m such a bread lover… like almost as much as I love chocolate ice cream, I love bread. If I could live on bread and chocolate, I most certainly would. But as of late, {since last Summer actually, when I got a high glucose reading at the doctor’s office} I’ve been trying to cut down on sugar and bread, since bread technically turns into sugar.

So when I saw these cauliflower bagels at Apples to Zoodles I was desperate to try them.

I followed her recipe but left out a crucial step: I didn’t grease my pan because it was non-stick and didn’t think I had to – but I was wrong, so admittedly, my bagels didn’t pop out as they should have and I wasn’t able to brown the bottom as the recipe stated. So I let them cool enough to be able to get them out of the pan, flipped them over on a small baking sheet and toasted them in the toaster oven to finish them up.

They turned out just okay… but I’m willing to take all the blame and I’d like to try again. I wasn’t overwhelmed with the taste either, as I was hoping they’d really feel more like a bagel instead of cauliflower. But they were good.
