The Bagel Edit

If you follow me on Instagram you will already know of my love for bagels, if you don’t, well, I LOVE bagels.

So, due to my obsession, I thought I should dedicate a post to one of my favorite carb source, the bagel. I used Genius Gluten Free bagels, as they are still light and fluffy despite being gluten free, but all of these fillings could be used in any other bagel that takes your fancy. Now I know some people disagree with toasting a bagel, and I completely agree if its fresh from a bakery, but I usually bulk buy mine at start of the week and put them in the freezer, so yes I do toast my bagels.

Right, now I’ve given you my views on bagels and toasting, let’s get onto the fillings! I’ve given you just a few of my favorite sweet fillings; I have a big sweet tooth…
