Recipe - Keto Sunflower Seed Hummus on a Keto Vegan Bagel

cru8 bagel with hummus
Introducing Cru8’s latest innovation, their Keto Vegan Bagel. This is the answer to everyone’s low carb dreams. This bagel weighs in at just 3.5g of carbs per bagel versus 45g for a regular grain-based one! Made with organic ground almonds, psyllium, golden flax seed, coconut flour, and olive oil, Cru8’s Keto bagel is low carb and low sugar - perfect for a low carb or Keto lifestyle. Not only is it low carb, it is also a source of protein (8g) and fibre (10g). The high fibre content is essential on a Keto diet, which often lacks this essential dietary element, so the bagels are pro-gut health too! Grain-free, “clean”, with no fillers or other nasties, this bagel has to be the best invention since sliced bread.

The Keto bagel is great toasted or as a sandwich bread. The recipe below is for a Keto sunflower seed hummus sandwich, a brilliant alternative to a regular chickpea hummus sandwich.
