Last week when I shared the pictures from the Schar US facility opening, I mentioned the new gluten-free bagels. I received samples of the brand new bagels yesterday and didn’t waste any time diving right in to sample them!
The bagels came frozen and Schar recommends keeping them frozen until you are ready to use them to maintain freshness. They can be enjoyed right out of the bag, at room temperature, but they recommend toasting. More about the bagels:
• Fortified with vitamins, calcium, and iron
• Excellent source of fiber

Cinnamon raisin bagels – 250 calories, 3 grams fat, 4 grams protein, 6 grams fiber.

First I sampled the plain bagel. I toasted the bagel and then topped with avocado and sea salt (one of my favorite combos) to pair with my salad for lunch.
This was love at first bite!! These bagels have a great texture and flavor that can easily be paired with hundreds of different toppings, spreads or eaten plain. I can’t wait to make pizza bagels with these! The cinnamon raisin bagels are equally as tasty and make a perfect breakfast treat smeared with a layer of cream cheese or butter.
The bagels can be purchased on the Schar website, but are currently listed as “out of stock”. Schar products can also be found in stores across the US – to find the location closest to you, use the store locator.
Have you tried the new Schar bagels? What did you think?
