These are lovely little morsels made using almond flour and seasoned cheese! If you are feeding a larger crowd, simply double up all the ingredients and use a larger tray. Remember, the little cheese bites do puff up when baked, so leave a little space between them to ensure they don’t stick when baking. These garlic cheese puffs are best enjoyed warm and straight from the oven – and the kids will love them!

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a small-medium baking tray with parchment paper.
    2. Place the grated mozzarella and cream cheese into a wide, microwave-friendly bowl.
    3. Combine the almond flour, garlic, onion, and baking powders in a large bowl. Season generously with salt and pepper.

    4. In a third bowl, whisk the egg.
    5. Microwave the bowl of cheese until completely melted, approx. 90 seconds. Immediately pour the melted cheese into the almond flour mix and use a wooden spoon to combine. Leave to cool for about a minute, then mix in the egg. You should have a "dough." You could do this in a food processor if it’s easier for you.
