broccoli tater tots low carbsAn healthy and  low carb tater tot recipe using broccoli and coconut flour.  Those cute tater tots are crispy outside with a cheesy and moist centre. This low carb broccoli tater tot recipe makes a great appetizer or kids finger food idea.

I still cannot believe that my little girl turns 3 in a month. She is already very excited with the idea of carrying a lunch box to daycare and to enjoy her own meal. That is why I started to create some healthy finger food that she can enjoy in her lunch box. I made those broccoli tater tot specially for her as she loves broccoli. I used coconut flour for a change – I usually like oat flour. Coconut flour is a great alternative to oat flour to decrease the carbs and increase the fibre in this tater tot recipe. However, it tends to dry out the mixture as it contains lots of fibre. To balance the fibre I added few more eggs in the batter compared to my cauliflower tots recipe here.broccoli tater tots

 

The result was great ! Crispy, cheesy and moit. She very enjoyed this cheesy broccoli tater tot recipe! I was glad that she even eat those without tomato sauce.  She loves dipping everything into tomato ketchup which is ok to me as soon as she eat my own wholesome sugar free ketchup. Well, I do not want to be seen as an healthy food freak but I like to fuel up my family with healthy food not overloaded with processed ingredient. I actually buy some ready made ketchup too but always an organic tomato ketchup without refined sugar, mostly made of tomatoes, onion and apple cider vinegar and it taste great.

I made this broccoli tater tot recipe two times and I even freeze some of them as this recipe makes arounds 50 tots. If you want to freeze this recipe, firstly shape the broccoli tots, lay on a plate cover with parchment paper and freeze. After few hours they will be frozen and you can transfer them into a large airtight container that you will keep up to 3 months in the freezer. When need, defrost on a cookie sheet few hours and bake as it was fresh.

  1. Hi
    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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  2. 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.

    • 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.

  3. 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.
