cheddar bagels

finally my blog is up! yay! first of all i have to tell you guys that English is not my native tongue so if there are mistakes in spelling or grammar please bear with me.  my first recipe that I'm going to post is not entirely mine i saw this post at ginnys lc kitcken she use this for a bun , i don't have nutritional yeast and i don't want wine in my bread so i just substitute and omit some of her ingredients, also she uses a machine called gt express, i don't have that either so i just bake mine and i add cheddar cheese to add chew in the bread.

4 large eggs
4 teaspoon coconut oil or any oil you prefer
2 tablespoon white vinegar ( you wont taste this)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 
1/4 cup almond flour
2 table spoon of psyllium husk powder ( if you don't have this you should stock your pantry it does wonderful for bread recipes)
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 packet of sweeteners
grated cheddar cheese ( enough for 6 bagels or 6 muffin tops)

pre heat your oven at 350 F
greased your donut pan or a muffin top pan
mix all the ingredients together
divide your batter to 6 donut pan or muffin top pan filled it 2/3 because it will rise, that's the magic of psyllium husk
then let it sit for about 5 minutes or more or till your oven reach the right temperature so that the baking soda can activate
bake for 15 minutes then turn off your oven and turn on the broiler, take out the bagels from the pan, it will be hot so be careful, i used bamboo bbq stick to do this job easily then on a broiler safe pan arrange the breads, top it with  grated cheddar cheese and broil it until cheese turn a little brown, try not to skip this process because the cheddar cheese add chew and texture to this bread. cool it down and put in a seal container so you can store it in the fridge. i actually like this out from the fridge then i put it in the toaster to heat it up a bit, it adds a little crunch that this bread needs.
