Ingredients

    (conversions)
    1c Tapioca Flour
    1/8c + 2tsp (2tbsp + 2tsp) Whole Milk
    1/8c + 2tsp (2tbsp + 2tsp) Water
    1 large egg
    1/4c (4 tbsp) Olive Oil or butter (facts are for oil)
    1/3c shredded cheese of choice
    I used Mexican shredded cheese
    recipe calls for fresh Parmesan (not grated or dry)

Directions

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
-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.
-Stir the cheese and egg into the tapioca mixture until well combined, the mixture will be chunky like cottage cheese.
-Drop rounded, 1/8 cup (43g) -sized balls of the mixture onto an ungreased/parchment paper lined baking sheet.
-Bake in preheated oven until the tops are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
(careful to touch/test after 15m they do not brown on top to show they are done. I baked them for 20 & they had a very crunch outer layer, stretchy soft center (varies with cheese choice))

Serving Size: 6 muffin or biscuit size breads

Number of Servings: 6
