These keto cheese balls can be made in about fifteen minutes, so are great for a low carb snack, side dish, or a last minute party offering – although you might want to double the recipe for a party as they'll get eaten fast! This basic recipe is also a wonderful vehicle for all kinds of other flavors – these cheese balls are quite similar to biscuits you might find at restaurants like Red Lobster, so keep reading for some variation ideas!

How 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. You could also add some low carb Old Bay seasoning at this point!

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.

Not sure if you'd be abke tonrespond but i hope you do.

Will this work deep fried instead of baked? Have you tried it that way?

I'm afraid I hate deep frying - so I haven't tried it. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

Hi there - I just made these and they went a bit flat ... the only cause I can guess is that I put too much cheese in (I may have had very generous measurements) - my mixture made 9 scoops, instead of 8. Very delicious though - thanks for the recipe.

Wow! Just wow! I've made two batches of these yummy balls. All I can say is that they really satisfy my need for bread while still staying keto. The amount produced fit well into my mini muffin pan. I baked them in my toaster oven. It was great! First batch was regular, second batch I threw in chopped bacon. Watch out! They are addictive. Thank you so much for this REALLY good recipe.

Hello! Could the batter be made ahead of time and refrigerated for a few hours before baking?

I haven't tried it but I can't see why it wouldn't work! I'm usually in too much of a hurry to get them baked LOL!
