Ingredients

CHEESE GARLIC BALLS

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 2 bags Quest Cheese Crackers, crushed
  • 2 tbsp gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, low moisture
  • 2 oz cream cheese, low fat
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, crushed crackers, gluten free flour and baking soda.
  3. Place the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese into a microwave safe bowl for 20 seconds.
  4. Stir and then return to the microwave for an additional 20 seconds. Stir until well combined. You don’t want the mozzarella to completely melt but warm enough to blend with the cream cheese.
  5. Stir in the egg until incorporated and then add in the dry ingredients.
  6. Stir until the dough comes together.
  7. Separate the dough into 12 evenly sized balls and place them on the baking sheet.
  8. Melt the butter and stir in the minced garlic and parsley. Brush over the balls.
  9. Bake the cheesy garlic balls for 15-20 minutes and golden. Top with grated parmesan and serve.
