Funk Food: NC Bagel Deli

Well, this was supposed to be my healthy week. I bought all this fresh veg and NO CARBS and as soon as I’d spent a fortune on feeding my body what it should be consuming, I managed to come down with the flu. What do you want when you have the flu? Not a bunch of cruciferous veg. You want bland and you carbs. And you want these homemade bagels from Skinny Taste.

I made these last week, before the health kick, but I was wishing I still had a few in my freezer for my lay around sick days. Crunchy-ish on the outside and chewy on the inside, they are a comfort food of dreams. At only 150 calories each that’s like half of a regular bagel. So what are you waiting for? Stock your freezer. Your sick days will thank you.

I topped mine with dried garlic. Apparently, you can use just about any seasoning.

Chewy. And slightly dense. But I think that’s a factor of using expired baking powder – something the recipes explicitly says not to use. I’ll splurge for fresh the next time I make these.
