A slather of cream cheese, sandwiched with a fried egg, or a smooth spread of almond butter plus sliced bananas... our Easy Blueberry & Sesame Bagels are easy, simple, comforting, and purely satisfying.
My childhood is filled with bagel memories - morning runs rewarded with a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel sandwich for breakfast, a salted bagel with sun-dried tomato cream cheese during high school study breaks, a comforting blueberry bagel freshly out of the toaster after a not-so-fantastic day. Bagels will always be your friend!
Breakfast or dinner - my go to sandwich is a sliced tomato, fried egg, and tender collard greens or kale leaves that have been sautéed in lemon juice. Definitely worth the try!
Absolutely! I actually just took some bagels out of the freezer the other day and they were delicious!
I recommend storing them in freezer-safe bags. Gently press out as much air as possible from the bag, since oxygen is what will make them lose their freshness. When properly stored, you can freeze your homemade bagels up to 3 months.
TIP: Slice each bagel horizontally (or as you would normally eat them), then freeze them.... By doing this, you can defrost them within minutes in the toaster!
Ah yes, the inevitable question regarding "carbs." When considering a balanced diet, the key is understanding that what most affects your health is the ingredients you feed your body. Most pre-made bagels in the grocery contain chemicals to preserve them longer or make them cheaper regarding costs. However, that is where the beauty of homemade bagels comes into play! You know exactly what ingredients your are eating and can even sneak a few additional nutrients into the bagels, such as flaxseed meal, hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc.
Using more easily digestible flours, such as sprouted grains like einkorn flour, and complex flours, like organic whole wheat, are simple additions to making a healthier bagel.
Did you know that you can kick start your metabolism in the morning by incorporating complex carbohydrates in your breakfast routine? Plus, your body is more likely to burn up the glucose, released from the carbs, quicker as you go about your daily routine.
Now, it is time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
