I've been dabbling with making healthy bagels for my kids lately. And I've been loving reworking this bagel recipe from Maria Mind Body Health a bit to make some savory bagels for bagel sandwiches and cinnamon/raisin bagels for breakfast.
This recipe came about after the first batch of these beautiful protein-packed cinnamon raisin bagels came out of the oven. This whipped pumpkin +spice cream cheese whips up in minutes and is so enjoyable to keep in the fridge throughout the week.
Here's how I like to eat it...
- with baby carrots
- slathered on coconut flour pancakes
- in place of butter on muffins
- dolloped in a protein shake
- with sliced apples
We love to serve up this pumpkin cream cheese on a tray full of sliced apples. The two pair together beautifully for healthy + kid friendly entertaining: it's our "treat" we brought to our recent Fall Carnival at church. And I'm proud to say that among the treats and sweets at the activity, the apples + dip were snatched up the fastest.
See? Kids really do crave nutritious foods! :)
I'd love to be inspired... What are some of your favorite kinds of flavored cream cheese?
