Ingredients

1 cup + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour (more for dusting)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup blended cottage cheese

1 egg

Everything bagel seasoning

Directions

In a large bowl, add flour and baking powder; whisk well to combine.

Add cottage cheese and stir with spatula to combine, then proceed to mix with your hands until a ball of dough forms. Knead it about 20 times. Dough should be not sticky but not dry. Cover with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Transfer dough on a counter, form a log and cut into 4 even pieces. Flour the surface, place one piece of dough, roll into a rope and then into a bagel shape, pinching the ends together. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and repeat with remaining dough.

In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Brush bagels with an egg wash and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion flakes or leave plain.

Bake on a middle rack for 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes (do not skip!). Slice, spread and enjoy protein bagels with your favorite toppings.
