Try these Keto Broccoli Bites for an easy low-carb snack or side dish! Each mini muffin is packed with tender broccoli and loads of cheddar cheese and is less than one net carb each.
You guys know how much I love my “keto bites”, and you guys love them too! These Keto Pizza Bites, Ham and Cheese Bites, and Sausage Egg Bites are some of the most popular recipes on my site. 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!
Keto Broccoli Bites Ingredients
The ingredients list for these keto broccoli and cheese bites is short and sweet. Here’s all you’ll need to make this recipe:
- Cheddar Cheese
- Cream Cheese
- Spices (garlic powder, salt & pepper)
- Coconut Flour
- Baking Powder
How to Make Broccoli 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.
Can I Freeze These?
I bet you could! The texture of the broccoli may change slightly once frozen, but I imagine the keto broccoli bites would still be tasty.
Can I Use Almond Flour?
I’ve only tested these bites with coconut flour, so I can’t speak to whether or not almond flour would work. If you try it out, please leave me a comment below letting me know your thoughts!
