Easy Cinnamon Apple Bagels with a sugar-free icing.  Paleo, Vegan, nut free, only and sweetened with fruit - the best healthy bagels.




  • 175g Fuji Apple (about 1 +1/2 cups chopped)*
  • 55g pitted dates (about 8 Deglet dates or 5 Medjool)
  • 106g arrowroot starch (3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp)
  • 32g coconut flour (1/3 cup sifted, spooned & leveled)
  • 22g ground flax (4 Tbsp)**
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

Icing (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Make the dough for the bagels: wash the apples, remove the cores and chop them into small cubes.  Place the apples and dates in a food processor.  Blend, stopping every so often to scrape the sides, until the mixture is a chunky puree.  Add remaining bagel ingredients to food processor.  Stir the dough with a spatula a few times, then blend until the dough starts to clump together.
  3. Shape the bagels: Remove the dough from the food processor and separate into four equal pieces.  Roll each piece into a ball and form into a bagel.  (Dust your hands with arrowroot flour if the dough is too sticky.)
  4. Bake the bagels: Place the bagels on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.  After baking, remove from oven and cool on a wire cooling rack.
  5. Make the icing: Mix together powdered monk fruit and tapioca flour.  Add in warm water and mix until smooth.
  6. Ice the bagels: Once bagels have fully cooled, dip them into the icing.  Or, drizzle the icing on top of the bagels using a small spoon.  Top with additional cinnamon.


For best results, measure quantities by weight (in grams) when given.  I use a simple food scale to measure ingredients for baking - it's cheap, convenient and much more accurate than measuring by volume.
