6 tablespoons lukewarm water
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups blanched almond flour
1 cup tapioca flour
¼ cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon salt
1-2 quarts water
¼ cup maple syrup or honey per quart of water
Combine the water, honey or maple syrup, and olive oil in a large bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture and let it stand for two minutes. Whisk in the egg, then stir in the almond, tapioca, and coconut flours and salt. The dough should be very stiff.
Separate the dough into six balls, roll them into long ropes, and form them into bagels. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
Pour the water and honey or maple syrup into a large saucepan and heat it until it boils. Place the bagels in the pan one or two at a time and boil them for about a minute, or until they rise to the top of the pan. Remove the bagels from the water, place them on the baking sheet, and sprinkle poppy seeds on top. Bake the bagels for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
