Review: Against the Grain Gourmet Dairy-Free Cinnamon Raisin Bagels

There are some mornings the call for the warmth and comfort of a bagel.  Yesterday morning happened to be one of those mornings.  Storms came through overnight and woke us all up.  The rain was still around when we got up for the day, so it was just plain miserable outside.  I remembered that I had picked up some new-to-me bagels the day before at the grand opening of our Earth Fare store, so my mood instantly brightened!


Yay for bagels!!  For all of you that have to avoid dairy, take notice of these!!  More about the bagels:

The package says to keep the bagels frozen and to defrost at room temperature or in the microwave.  I wanted to toast my bagel, so I heated it in the microwave for 10 seconds.  That was long enough to soften the bagel so that I could cut it in half.  I then put the bagel into the toaster oven until it was toasted to my liking.  I opted to spread almond butter and strawberry fruit spread on my bagel.


The only way I can describe this breakfast is heaven on a plate!  The flavor & texture of the bagel are perfect!  The cinnamon was enough to come through my toppings, but not enough to overwhelm.  I can’t wait to try this bagel with apple or pumpkin butter!
