Keto 3 Ingredients Broccoli Cheese Bites: 0.9g carbs each.

Here’s an easy-peasy keto idea. Healthy mini bakes that you can have for lunch, as a starter, savoury snack, party food or as part of a picnic hamper. They are lovely whether you eat them warm or cold. And they’ll keep for a couple of days, providing they are kept refrigerated in a sealed container. If you don’t like broccoli, or you want to reduce carbs even further, just swap the broccoli rice for cauliflower rice and Bob’s your uncle – now your bites will contain just 0.65g carbs. Both veggies are considered low carb superfoods, so you can’t really go wrong here!

Obviously, being ‘bites’, you won’t want to eat just one…I find 3 is a good portion. But, what the heck, eat the whole 12 and you’ve still only eaten 11g carbs (8g if made with cauliflower rice). So you can binge on these babies and not feel guilty afterwards!!!

Do you want the Keto 3 Ingredients Broccoli Cheese Bites to be more cheese-y or broccoli-y? No problem. Simply use a bit more of one and a little less of the other and you’re there.

How to Make Keto 3 Ingredients Broccoli Cheese Bites

Get a large glass bowl or similar. I like Pyrex, but whatever you have – as long as it’s a food-grade bowl, will do.

For speed and convenience, I buy broccoli rice and cauliflower rice in a pouch, ready to use. But you can easily make ‘rice’ by simply pulsing broccoli or cauliflower florets in a food processor for a few seconds until you see them become ‘rice’-like. A bit messy, but pretty easy to do. Whether you make the ‘rice’yourself, or you buy it in a bag, there’s no need for pre-cooking.

Pour the broccoli rice, or cauliflower rice, into the bowl, together with grated/shredded cheese, eggs and seasoning. 

Scoop the mixture into your muffin tray and bake. 

It’s that simple.

Delicious mini bakes that you can have as an appetiser, savoury snack, lunch or even as a side dish. Simple and quick. You'll love them.
  • 200g broccoli rice
  • 200g grated mature cheddar cheese
  • 2 medium eggs
  • pinch of fine Himalayan pink salt (U.S. option HERE)
  • a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper
  • unsalted butter
  1. in a food processor, pulse broccoli florets until they become rice-like (or buy a broccoli rice pouch - I get mine from Sainsbury's).
  2. using a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli rice, grated cheese, eggs, salt and pepper (plus chilli powder or flakes if you fancy spicy bites) - I find a fork works best.
  3. pre-heat oven to 200C fan (220C static).
  4. generously butter each hole of a 12-muffin oven tray and divide the mixture between the holes.
  5. use the back of a teaspoon to flatten the mixture, but avoid pressing down excessively.
  6. bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and crispy on top.
  7. let the bites cool down, then remove them (a small, flexible spatula will help if a little stuck to the bottom or sides) and serve.
Macros given are for 1 bite. As a reasonable portion I would suggest 3 bites per person.

Metric scales are inexpensive but invaluable, and they take up very little space. THIS is the one I use. For U.S. option, click HERE.

  1. hi can these brocolli bites be made and frozen ? then heated later thank-you

  2. These are great, made with half broccoli and half cauliflower. Dipped in full fat sour cream and super good! Can these be frozen once cooked?

  3. What a great recipe! I love this so much! Let me try this tonight!

  4. Made these last night. They are great! I was a little short on broccoli, so I used broccoli and cauliflower…they are delicious.

    Just bought some organic broccoli & a lovely big cauli yesterday, as I wanted to make these for the weekend ( visiting a friend in Kilmarnock, who always looks
    for some goodies from me, knowing I’m a chef ) & I thought these would be so easy to whip up. I added half tsp of cayenne to the mixture, and they turned out
    smashing..only trouble is, having a Husband you can’t hide food from, means I have to make some more tomorrow, as his ” I’ll just test these for you Darling ”
    REALLY means, I’ll eat most of these, when you’re not looking! but as I said, they are just sooo quick to make, it’s not really that much of a problem.
    I’m also going to make your delish chocolate fondant Antya, as Tim knows that
    needs to be left for a few hours, & with a LOT of luck, that will not need making a second time x

    • Thank you! I’m always happy when my recipes are a success ?. The key to replicating recipes and not have fails is to use same ingredients and same quantities. You’ve clearly got this…then again, as a chef, you know…
