Brazilian Cheese Bread- TO MAKE

One of my fellow Alltech employees, actually the one who sent me the KIND bars spoiled the sales reps in our territory when they were in California for training. I did not get to attend because of school and State FFA preparation. BUT I heard all about the gluten free “Brazilian balls”, as one of the reps called them.

I set out to do some research and found lots of recipes for them and they look VERY easy. I do not have tapioca flour so I will have to make it or buy it, but they are on my TO MAKE list!

Here is a picture of them from the website

As well as the recipe:


  • 1/2 cup olive oil or butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 beaten eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 375  degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Pour olive oil, water, milk, and salt into a large saucepan, and place over high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat immediately, and stir in tapioca flour and garlic until smooth. Set aside to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Stir the cheese and egg into the tapioca mixture until well combined, the mixture will be chunky like cottage cheese. Drop rounded, 1/4 cup-sized balls of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Do these not sound so simple and delicious? Have you ever tried these? I have also heard you can dip them in marinara… any thoughts?
