If there’s one factor I can assure once I submit a recipe, it’s that individuals will ask about substitutions. I completely perceive, as somebody with a good quantity of restrictions, however regardless of what number of completely different substitutions I attempt to embody within the notes, somebody all the time needs one thing else. Years in the past, I posted a recipe for vegan keto bagels that turned immensely in style and the commonest query I get from folks is “can I substitute anything for the flax?” So, I’ve lastly gotten round to this, and am excited to current my flax-free vegan keto bagels.
Typically, folks will ask if they’ll sub chia seeds for the flax, as this normally a secure substitute. I attempted this, many occasions, and it actually didn’t work out. Similarly, coconut flour was a bust. Plus, I understand how polarizing coconut could be, and I really feel like each time I submit a recipe for one thing with coconut flour, I’ve to brace myself for the slew of feedback about how a lot folks hate coconut. 😀
Anyway, the flour substitute that appeared to work finest simply so occurred to be one which I’ve actually gotten into currently: lupin flour! Lupins (or lupini) are a kind of bean, most typical within the Mediterranean, and one which has actually taken off, due to ketoers. It’s tremendous low in carbs and excessive in protein. Usually, I purchase lupini beans brined in jars from both the Kosher or Mediterranean meals part of my native grocery retailer, however I’ve additionally seen them within the Latin American meals part. The flour is a special story, although, and I’ve solely been capable of finding it on-line.
A fast word – these don’t style precisely like bagels. For starters, they aren’t boiled earlier than being baked. However, they’re nonetheless fairly darn scrumptious and make a beautiful base for vegan cream cheese or a buttery unfold. I additionally like to make use of them to make tiny bagel pizzas with them.

Too a lot lupin flour simply makes issues a bit dry, so not an enormous deal, however price noting.
- You can’t substitute the psyllium for something, sadly. You can use both psyllium husk, or psyllium powder (in equal quantities by weight), simply make sure you whisk all of the dry components collectively, as psyllium powder tends to clump up simply.
