  • 1 Package Active dry yeast
  • 3 Tbsp Cassava flour
  • 1 Cup Tapioca flour
  • 3 Tbsp Potato starch
  • 3/4 Cup Almond flour
  • 1 Tsp Nutritional yeast
  • 3/4 Tsp Sea salt
  • 5 Tbsp Egg white
  • 1/3 - 1/2 Cup Milk warm
  • 3/4 Tsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tsp Honey
  • 2 Tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tsp White sesame seeds
  • 2 Tsp Black sesame seeds


  1. In a stand mixer, add the different flours, yeast and salt. Then, add the egg whites, honey, oil and vinegar to the mixture. Heat the milk until just warm. Add the milk to the mixture and mix for about 5 minutes. Keep mixing - the dough will be fairly thick. If too thick, add a tablespoon of milk at a time. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about an hour. About 45 minutes into the rising time, prepare the steam oven to proof setting. Now, shape the dough into a ball, and using your finger, poke a good sized hole in the middle and gently pinch all around the inner and outer sides. Move the bagels to a baking tray. Add to the steam oven for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Brush the tops of the bagels with the egg white, then, if desired, sprinkle with poppy seeds. Place the bagels on a baking tray and place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, add to a perforated (mesh) pizza screen and bake for another 20 minutes. Turn the oven off, leave the door open a crack and let the bagels sit in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes to give it a good crust and to get out any excess water. Remove from oven and let them cool completely.

    Serve and enjoy!

Keep an eye on the bagels during the second 20 minutes of baking.  You do not want the exterior to get to crisp.
