Brazilian Cheese Bread Bites this quick recipe is authentic and uses queso fresco and tapioca flour so they are gluten freeWhen these gorgeous little gems came out of the oven, I ate four of them without stopping to catch my breath and I refuse to be ashamed! With my struggles with gluten over the past four years, I will shamelessly devour any baked good that is gluten free and doesn’t taste like it is gluten free. The only other GF recipe I have eaten this quickly is my Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies…which are nothing short of miraculous if you haven’t tried them yet.Brazilian Cheese Bread Bites this quick recipe is authentic and uses queso fresco and tapioca flour so they are gluten freeThis recipe does require a blender to prepare so the batter will turn out perfectly smooth.

Brazilian Cheese Bread Bites

1 egg, room temperature
1/3 C olive oil
2/3 C milk
1 1/2 C (170 g) tapioca flour
1/2 C (66 g) queso fresco, or other grated cheese
1 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides to be sure everything gets incorporated well then pulse a few more times. You can keep the batter in the fridge for up to one week at this stage.
  2. Grease mini muffin tins and divide the batter into 20 muffins. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they are puffed up and lightly brown. Eat while warm! You can serve them with a drizzle of honey for a sweet treat.

    What can I use in place of tapioca flour?

    • Hi Patricia! We contacted the original author of the post and she has never made it any other way so she didn’t have any suggestions for you. So sorry.

    Isn’t tapioca flour used as a thickening agent like corn starch? I use Rice flour instead, for thickening, which is common in Indian cooking. I’ve it in stock all the time as we make a lot of things with the flour. But I don’t have the other two flours handy. It works out fine with the rice flour replacement. Incidentally, I happened to make for the first time this afternoon, Peach Cobbler using Bisquick and it called for 2 tsp of fine tapioca. I used my rice flour in its place and the Cobbler came out fine!
