Healthy Everything Bagel Bites Recipe
This Recipe Is Everything...Forget big doughy bagels; there are better ways to satisfy a carb craving! These bite-sized wonders taste exactly like everything bagels, but they come with a teeny-tiny caloric price tag. We even managed to sneak in a secret ingredient! Trust us: You'll fall nose over toes for 'em. Watch how they're made...
Cook: 15 minutes
Cool: 10 minutes
1 cup roughly chopped cauliflower or 3/4 cup cauliflower rice
1 cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. whipped butter, room temperature
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. everything bagel seasoning blend (like the kind by Trader Joe’s)
2 tbsp. egg whites (about 1 large egg’s worth) or fat-free liquid egg substitute
Optional toppings: reduced-fat/light cream cheese, additional whipped butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until reduced to the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs. (Even if you begin with cauliflower rice, don’t skip this step!)
Place cauliflower crumbs in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Uncover and stir. Re-cover and microwave for another 2 minutes, or until hot and soft.
Transfer to a fine-mesh strainer to drain and cool, about 10 minutes.
Using a clean dish towel (or paper towels), firmly press out as much liquid as possible.
Return cauliflower crumbs to the large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except seasoning and egg whites/substitute. Thoroughly mix.
Fold in 1 tsp. seasoning. Evenly form into 18 balls (about 1 1/2 tbsp. each), and place on the baking sheet, evenly spaced.
Brush the tops with egg whites/substitute. Evenly sprinkle with remaining 2 tsp. seasoning.
Bake until tops are golden brown and insides are cooked through, 8 - 10 minutes.
