This recipe is naturally gluten free. The cheesy, buttery, rolls or “puffs” have a light, crisp outside and a very chewy and soft inside.

Yield: 6 servings
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil*
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups tapioca flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Pour oil, milk and salt into a saucepan and heat. As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat and stir in tapioca flour until well mixed. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

Stir in eggs and cheese. The mixture will be chunky.

Drop rounded, 1/4 cup sized balls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. You can also flour your hands with the tapioca flour and roll the mixture into balls.

Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Rolls should be puffed and lightly browned.

*Part butter can also be used with the coconut oil.
