Low-Fodmap Heart Bagels (and yummy topping ideas!)

gluten free lactose free bagel recipe with toppings

If you ask me, Maca, what’s the one thing you absolutely adore about Montreal food? Without a doubt I’ll scream: GIMME ALL THE BAGELS! 

Sorry, New York City bagels, but the Montreal-style bagels are smaller, thinner, sweeter and denser, perfectly handmade and wood-fired paired with dreamy toppings and boiled in honey-sweetened water before being baked (are you drooling at this point?).

If you read my first low-fodmap post last week, you now understand a bit more why I am doing it, the things I’ve been eliminating, reintroducing and now learning how to tolerate. As a bagel fan, I know my delicate tummy can’t process a good ol’ Montreal-style bagel every week, so today I tried this homemade bagel recipe at home that I loved, lots (and you only need three ingredients!).

To celebrate Valentine’s day today, I created these low-fodmap heart bagels (and a bunch of yummy topping ideas!)

The recipe is very easy and nothing beats freshly home-baked bagels, am I right?

what’s the difference between a normal bagel and a low-fodmap one?

By now, I’m sure you think it is very hard to make your own bagels at home, but I promise you they aren’t! To have a low-fodmap recipe you’ll need to replace the gluten using a gluten-free flour and a lactose-free greek yogurt. I didn’t boil the bagels in water sweetened with honey, because honey is considered high-fodmap, so I (sadly) avoided this in this recipe.

Low-fodmap topping ideas 

Aren’t bagel toppings the best part of eating them, for real? I always get SO excited to plan my toppings and add as many colourful ingredients as I can, helping my little ones take their veggies and protein. I always start spreading lactose-free cream cheese as a base to all the bagels, and I add my favourite toppings, such as:

– cherry tomatoes and basil

– cucumbers and cream cheese

– mushrooms and cream cheese

– boiled eggs with sea salt flakes

– feta and chives

– lactose free cheese and chives

– smoked salmon and chives

– alfalfa sprouts, cream cheese and sea salt flakes
