Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 ounces of cream cheese

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 large egg white, beaten until it triples in volume

For the Topping

  • 1 large egg white

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sea salt or Everything seasoning for sprinkling on top

Cheese Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 1 cup good quality shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

Before you begin measuring and preparing everything ahead of time, you must work the dough while the cheese is hot, so it is time sensitive.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Melt the shredded mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments until completely melted. Stir until smooth.

  3. In a second bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder, stirring well.

  4. Combine the melted cheese with the flour mixture. Stir the dough and work the flour into the cheese as well as you can.

  5. Next, add the whole egg and the beaten egg, and stir the mixture until a soft dough forms. Then, using your hands knead the dough until you are satisfied that the egg, flour, and cheese are all working in the dough together. Make sure there are no streaks of eggs, you want it to be completely combined.

  6. Separate the dough into two sections, and roll it into a long thin rope. Use a knife to cut into small 1-inch pieces. (I had 80 small pretzel bites total)

  7. Brush the bites with the egg white and sprinkle the seasoning of choice on top.

  8. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

For the Cheese Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

  2. When the butter has melted stir in the heavy cream and the shredded cheddar cheese, and stir until smooth and warmed through. Serve immediately.
