Brazilian Cheese Bread Bites are quick little bites of heaven! This blender recipe uses queso fresco and tapioca flour which makes them naturally gluten free. This authentic recipe gives you little bread bites that are crispy and golden brown on the outside, then cheesy and chewy on the inside!
When these gorgeous little gems came out of the oven, I ate four of them without stopping to catch my breath and I refuse to be ashamed! With my struggles with gluten over the past four years, I will shamelessly devour any baked good that is gluten free and doesn’t taste like it is gluten free. The only other GF recipe I have eaten this quickly is my Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies…which are nothing short of miraculous if you haven’t tried them yet.This recipe does require a blender to prepare so the batter will turn out perfectly smooth. I’ve been having so much fun playing around with my Wolf Gourmet blender and trying out so many new recipes. Nothing like a new kitchen toy for this food blogger 🙂
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1/3 C olive oil
- 2/3 C milk
- 1 1/2 C (170 g) tapioca flour
- 1/2 C (66 g) queso fresco, or other grated cheese
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides to be sure everything gets incorporated well then pulse a few more times. You can keep the batter in the fridge for up to one week at this stage.
- Grease mini muffin tins and divide the batter into 20 muffins. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they are puffed up and lightly brown. Eat while warm! You can serve them with a drizzle of honey for a sweet treat.
