Tapioca Cheesy Balls
  • 1 cup milk 250ml - switch with cashews milk under 12 months
  • 1/2 cup olive oil 130ml
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 oz tapioca flour 400gr.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese 200gr.
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F/180C.
  2. In a saucepan combine milk + oil + salt (skip salt for babies under 1 yr) and bring to boil.
  3. Pour the tapioca flour into a mixer with a paddle attachment. Pour the hot milk mix into the tapioca flour.
  4. Let the mixer work for 2 minutes at medium speed to incorporate the ingredients and let them cool down a bit.
  5. Whisk the eggs together in a small bowl.
  6. Slowly add the eggs to the tapioca mix. Let the mixer work for 1 minute.
  7. Add the parmesan and let it work for another minute.
  8. It is a very starchy dough, it can be done by hand, but it is way easier with the mixer ;-)
  9. The final dough will be like a cake batter, a bit more dense.
  10. Grease a mini-muffin pan and fill each hole with the tapioca mix. Do not fill up until the top as they will puff while baking.
  11. Bake them for 25 min until the outside is dry and golden.
  12. Let them cool down 5 min and enjoy them warm
