Recipe: Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Balls

Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Balls

These tiny broccoli balls have been my go-to for years. I use them as a meat replacement (meatballs), as a snack and I feed them to my kids. They love them so much that they don’t care that they’re eating broccoli! If I had to pick one superfoods recipe on the website this would be it. They’re super nutritious and loaded with lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber.

I shared an identical recipe (broccoli tots) to these a few years back and have been getting tons of positive feedback from happy readers. This time around, we’ve simplified the recipe, made it easier to shape, and adapted it to a low-carb diet making these broccoli bites even healthier!
