You guys know how much I love my “keto bites”, you guys love them too! These Easy Keto Pizza Bites, Ham and Cheese, and Sausage Egg Bites are some of the most popular recipes. I think what makes them so popular is that they are all about one net carb, loaded with cheese and are soft and fluffy to help you feel like you are getting your carb fix.
I’ve had several requests for some non-meat keto bites for our vegetarian friends or for those of you looking for an easy low carb side. These Keto Broccoli Cheddar Bites fit the bill perfectly. They are loaded with broccoli, cheddar and spices and they go perfectly with everything! And bonus, broccoli is in season right now!
What Ingredients do you need for Keto Broccoli Cheddar Bites?
- Cream Cheese
- Coconut Flour
- Baking powder
How do you make Keto Broccoli Cheddar Bites?
The base for this recipe is of course, broccoli. I find I get the best results from lightly steamed broccoli. You can steam fresh broccoli until tender or you can use frozen broccoli in a microwave friendly steam bag. Once the broccoli is tender lightly chop it, removing as many of the big stems as you can.
Combine the chopped broccoli with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and spices. Add the beaten eggs (make sure the broccoli has cooled so it doesn’t cook the eggs) and then stir in the coconut flour and baking powder.
As with all of the keto bite recipes on this site allow the mixture to chill 10 minutes to allow the flour time to absorb all of the moisture. Carefully spoon the mixture into mini muffin tins. I use a silicone muffin tin so the bites do not stick and always come out cleanly.
What can I serve these Keto Broccoli Cheddar Bites with?
These are also great served cold and reheat perfectly so they make a great meal prep option. Chicken or tuna salad, iceberg lettuce for wrapping and a few broccoli cheddar bites make an easy and delicious low carb lunch.
