Broccoli Parmesan Poppers (Gluten Free!)

Broccoli Parmesan Poppers (Gluten Free!)

We’re gonna keep things short and sweet today since I know you’re all so busy prepping for Shavuot! I’m gonna let the photos do the talking.


I think you’re getting the picture (pun intended). I took some good old broccoli trees and made ’em kid friendly! And they’re even gluten free. Because I love you. (And because I’m on South Beach).


Do yourself a favor and bookmark this flaxseed crumb recipe because if you’re gluten free, you’re going to want to put it on everything. Especially homemade chicken nuggets. Trust me.


Did I mention they are baked too? You’re welcome.


I love how much goodness is packed into these little balls. Broccoli, flaxseeds, almond meal, and I even made a Greek yogurt ranch dip. Betchya never knew that healthy food could taste/look this good!


And you know what else? these little magic balls are easily adaptable too! If you want a more cheesy bite, add some shredded cheddar. Or your favorite cheese. And you can easily swap in some panko or breadcrumbs if you don’t have gluten free ingredients on hand like I do. Told you they were magic balls.


You’ve got the recipe, now get into the kitchen and make them already! Happy dipping!

      1. Do you bake them straight from the freezer
        My oven will be on 350 over yom tov
        Is this hot enough?
        And how long should they bake?
        Thank you

          1. If they were baked on 350 after frozen for a little longer then you would on 400, would they still get that outer-crispness?

  1. I am coeliac and this recipe looks really good for those who are gluten free. Thanks for the recipe all the best to you.

  2. I’ve made this a few times with either cauliflower or broccoli (didn’t have any). They are great.
    What I would like to know is: If I use fresh broccoli how long should I cook or steam the broccoli?

  3. If i use bread crumbs, do I put inside the poppers (to substitute almond meal) and roll them for the outside? or just the outside? Thanks

    1. You can use them for both. For the inside, if you don’t want to use almond meal, use bread crumbs instead. For the outside, if you don’t want to use the flaxseed mixture, use panko or regular bread crumbs instead.
