Raw Cinnamon Bagels
When juicing carrots each day one always wonders what to do with the pulp. I have found just the thing to do with it, and it can be the main ingredient in your healthy bagels. However if you do not juice, don’t fret, you can use grated carrots and you can easily grate them in your food processor to save time and energy as well.
There really are just a few things to have on hand when you begin to make your own bagels. Most of these ingredients you will have in your stocked pantry and fridge. So lets get started.
- I cup of raw almonds ( soaked in water for thirty minutes to release live enzymes)
- I cup of carrot pulp from your juicer or grated carrot
- 3 tbsp. Ground flax
- 2 tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp of maple syrup, or agave syrup
- 1 cup of organic raisins
Process almonds in food processor and add carrot to process or carrot pulp,
next add ground flax meal, olive oil, sea salt, and cinnamon, and maple syrup or agave syrup
Process till creamy.
Next put in raisins and process just until mixed
Remove batter from processor and put in bowl. Next shape each small mound into a round shape, much like that of a bagel shape. Then press a small hole in the middle
Put on dehydrator sheets to dehydrate for 4- 6 hours or more, check in about three hours and gently flip bagels
To make everything bagels simply add, 1/3 cup of onion flakes, 2 ½ tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar, one tsp seasoning salt, and one tsp of garlic salt.
Omit the cinnamon, raisins and syrup if doing everything bagels.
When shaping the bagels and putting on the dehydrator trays, sprinkle with poppy seeds and sesame seeds and press gently into bagels
These mouthwatering, low calorie, healthy bagels are great raw recipe to keep on hand when following a raw food lifestyle.
When I first started making raw meals, deserts, snacks and treats I was really stuck right ideas because I can tell you when I began there are very few raw recipe books around, so I was very grateful to find Amber Shea Crawley Practically Raw Desserts because she has so many wonderful recipes in there that are super easy to make.
There is not a week goes by where I don’t delve into her book to make some well worn and time-honoured favourite healthy and fun recipes for my family to enjoy:)
