A healthy and low-carb tater tot recipe using broccoli and coconut flour. These 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’s why I started to create some healthy finger food that she can enjoy in her lunch box. I made these broccoli tater tots 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 a lot of fibre. To balance the fibre, I added a few more eggs in the batter compared to my cauliflower tots recipe.
The result was great ! Crispy, cheesy and moist. She very much enjoyed this cheesy broccoli tater tot recipe! I was glad that she even ate these without tomato sauce. She loves dipping everything into tomato ketchup which is OK to me as long as she eats my own wholesome sugar free ketchup. Well, I don’t want to be seen as a healthy food freak but I like to fuel up my family with healthy food not overloaded with processed ingredients. 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 tastes great.
I made this broccoli tater tot recipe twice and I even froze 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 a 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 for a few hours and bake as if they were fresh.
Who is going to make this recipe? Enjoy! Carine.
