1 ½ tbsp coconut flour, or can use ⅓ cup almond flour instead
2 large eggs
2 ½ to 3 tbsp red hot pepper sauce, I used this one *optional
⅓ cup grated cheddar cheese * can omit for dairy free
1 ½ tbsp Parmesan cheese *can omit for dairy free
½ tsp sea salt
⅓ tsp black pepper
2 tbsp avocado oil, or other oil of choice, for frying
Optionally Garnish Each with:
1 tsp sour cream or paleo sour cream
½ tsp extra red hot pepper sauce
Preheat oven to 425 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
In a food processor or blender combine the first three ingredients and pulse until the broccoli, garlic and bacon are minced.
In a large mixing bowl combine: the minced broccoli garlic and bacon, coconut flour, eggs, red pepper sauce, grated cheese, parmesan cheese, sea salt, and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.
Place spoonfuls ( about1 ½ tbsps) of the dough onto the parchment paper, lightly smashing them down with the back of your spoon to a pattie like shape. Repeat until all dough is used.
Bake for 12 minutes or until firm and no longer sticky. Remove from oven and cool enough to handle.
Heat a large frying pan and the avocado oil or oil of choice to medium high heat. Fry broccoli bites, a few at a time for a minute or two on each side until browned and crisp. Remove from pan and repeat. Serve with a little optional sour cream (or paleo sour cream) and more red pepper sauce.
