Procedure to Make Low Carb Crispy Cheese Balls

  • Put two eggs into a bowl and whisk until lightly beaten. Add shredded cheddar, mozzarella, Parmesan, baking powder, almond flour, and black pepper. Cheese and almond may seem like an odd flavor combination but you really don’t taste the almond at all – it is just there to help everything stick together. 
  • Mix everything together until it forms one large ball. Divide it into 8 sections, and roll each section into a ball. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Place in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and delicious!
  • Serve on skewers, toothpicks, or in a bowl – you could even add a dip for them!
