Keto Everything Cream Cheese Cucumbers Recipe

For a savory, low-carb snack, you'll get the flavor of an everything bagel in this recipe, minus the bread!

This low-carb, keto-friendly snack will keep you satiated, and you don't have to sacrifice taste, either! Whether you're keto crazy or just interested in testing the waters, this is a simple snack anyone can enjoy.

If you're looking to lose weight on keto, a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health reported that being on a keto diet can help control hunger levels and improve metabolic rate. When you're on the keto diet, you're looking for foods that are high in fat and low in carbs. Cucumbers make for a great low-carb snack, but what can you pair them with to up the fat content and help you reach ketosis?

Here, we've added cream cheese and bacon bits to the recipe to keep you feeling full, and the everything bagel seasoning topping (which, yes, is so easy to make at home with just six simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry) gives you a savory snack you'll love to make. You'll get full flavor in every bite, without the carbs of a real bagel. Plus, the whole thing takes about five minutes, so you can have a healthy snack that's homemade in no time.
