Za’atar Spiced Cauliflower “Bagels”
Before I lose some of you (or you want to roll your eyes at the computer screen because of the title of this post) let me explain myself. I’ll be the first to admit that I had a hard time naming these “bagels.” These are not bagels; they’re baked cauliflower that just so happen to be shaped like bagels. They don’t even taste like a traditional bagel, they taste like cauliflower in bread form. Sounds weird I know, but trust me, these little “bagels” are awesome! I love that you can slice them in half and spread a mashed avocado on each side and stuff them with fried bacon for a simple breakfast sandwich. You can get fancy or keep them simple with just a smear of good quality butter and sea salt. The addition of the za’atar on top is a game-changer and takes these to a whole new level. I was inspired to make these from one of my favorite food blogs My New Roots. My recipe is slightly different but the concept is the same. Cauliflower is amazing and I love this new and fun way of enjoying it!
I hope you all love these “bagels” as much as we do. They taste best when eaten warm right out of the oven however, they also store in the fridge for 3 days too!

Za'atar Spiced Cauliflower Bagels
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Serves: 6 bagels
- 1 medium sized head of cauliflower, broken into florets (about 3 cups)
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Za'atar seasoning for sprinkling
- Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until the mixture resembles a fine rice-like consistency.
- In a bowl combine the flours, garlic powder, salt and eggs. Stir in the "riced" cauliflower and mix well.
- Form the dough into about 6 baseball size rounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. Use your finger to poke a hole in the middle (this is optional if you want them to look like bagels) Sprinkle with the za'atar and place the try in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Enjoy warm with a smear of good quality butter.
Notes*Store the bagels in a ziplock bag in the fridge for three days
