How To Make Keto Broccoli Tater Tots
These Keto Broccoli Tots are super easy to make with 5 ingredients and ready in less than 30 minutes.
- Broccoli – Broccoli is a low-carb vegetable, full of nutrients and absolutely delicious in many recipes.
- Onion – pick either a yellow onion or red onion, both work.
- Eggs – I like to use medium-sized free-range eggs for this recipe. Eggs are keto-friendly ingredients.
- Coconut Flour – Coconut flour is a high-fiber, low-carb flour. One of the best keto flours.
- Cheese: pick your favorite grated cheese, such as grated mozzarella, cheddar, Emmental, Gouda cheese, or Parmesan cheese.
Making The Tots
Start the broccoli tots batter by processing the broccoli in a food processor. Once the broccoli forms a rice-like texture, add the egg, coconut flour, grated cheese, onion, salt, and pepper.
Process again on the low-speed setting for about one minute before transferring the batter to a mixing bowl.
Shape the tots with your hands and place them on a baking sheet lined with lightly oiled parchment paper.
Leave about an inch between each of the broccoli tots so they cook evenly.
Bake the keto broccoli tots for 15 to 20 minutes at 350°F (180°C) until they become golden-brown and crispy.
Serving Broccoli Tots
These broccoli tots are delicious with many dips and sauces. Here are my favorites:
- Homemade Ketchup
- Vegan Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Yogurt Sauce)
- Keto Hummus
- Baba Ganoush
- 4-Ingredient Keto Guacamole
- Vegan Spinach Avocado Dip
You can store these broccoli tater tots for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. Keep them in serving-size zip-lock bags so you can defrost a serving at once.
Rewarm them in the oven for a few minutes or on a hot frying pan. I don’t recommend using a microwave as they will soften and become soggy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Bake Broccoli Tater Tots In An Air Fryer?
Yes, you can bake these broccoli tots in the air fryer. Bake them at the same temperature, but make sure there’s some space between the tots.
Because of that, you might have to bake them in several batches.
How Many Carbs Are In Keto Broccoli Tots?
Each of these keto broccoli tots contains 0.9 grams of net carbs.
For a typical serving of 8 tots, you’d have 7.2 grams of net carbs (dips excluded).

Easy to throw together, adding to my meal prep rotation.
The instructions say to ‘shape the tots with your hands’, but how much of the batter is used for each tot? For example, 2 tbsp?
Yes about 2 tbsp for one tot
Easy to make and delicious
I’m going to try it with asparagus will let you know how it works out thanks for the recipe ???? if it fails I will do broccoli. ????
That is a clever idea! I wonder how it will turns out. Let me know. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.
Hi and yes asparagus worked great I cut the recipe in half in case it wasn’t great and on half the batch I rolled them in hymilian pork rinds so good again thanks again ????
SO glad to hear back from you on that one ! I love asparagus too so it is a must try. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.
Can I use frozen broccoli?
Sure it should not be a problem at all. Make sure they are defrost, pat dry to avoid adding extra moisture to the recipe. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.
Would almond flour work for these or does it need to be coconut flour?
Hi, I would not use almond meal in this recipe. I am not sure it will work well as coconut flour contains more fiber and it is more liquid absorbent. I guess almond meal won’t makes those tots hold together as well. Enjoy the blog Emily! XOXO Carine.
Am I able to freeze these after I make them? Is there a certain cheese that works best?
Sure, it is better to freeze them before baking. Place them on a plate, freeze, then transfer into a zip bag and store in the freezer up to 1 month. Bake frozen on a cooking sheet slightly oiled. Bake as usual until crispy. Enjoy ! xoxo. Carine.
Carine I’m loving your recipes. We are celebrating my daughter’s 5th birthday soon and we have over 100 guests! (Don’t ask!) Anyhow, I tried your sweet potato tots and I also made them with butternut squash and they came out amazing. I ‘m planning on start making them this weekend for the next one and freeze them. Can I do the same with the broccoli ones?
I replied to you by private email 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the tots and your daughter’s 5th birthday party was amazing! Thanks for reading the blog. xoxo Carine.
Do you cook the broccoli before hand? I found other recipes that do but you don’t say to do that.
Hi Teresa, No I don’t ! That is why this recipe is so easy 🙂 no precooking required ! enjoy them and let me know how it goes of course! Carine.
As good as these may be they should not be called “tater tots”, because they are not made with potatoes(taters)…..they are broccoli tots!!
Hi Stephanie, thanks for the extra note. I am Frenc Stephanie so I do my best to translate my recipe titles in English. I had no idea that tater tots always contains potatoes! I learnt something today 🙂 I hope you enjoy those broccoli bites anyway! Carine.
