  • food processor


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese or grated parmesan cheese
  • 2/3 cup almond or oat flour
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a large baking sheet with a little thin oil or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Steam broccoli for 5 minutes and then rinse with cold water to
    stop the cooking process. Let broccoli drain very well. You can use towels or a strainer for this.
  • Run broccoli through your food processor with your “S” blade
    until finely chop. Alternatively, you can finely chop the cooked broccoli by hand.
  • In a large bowl, combine broccoli with remaining ingredients. Mix
  • Using a heaping tablespoon or small cookie scoop, portion out the broccoli mixture into small balls. Gently press the balls into a tot shape. Place on your prepped baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top, being sure to flip the tots half
    way through baking. Remove from the oven and enjoy hot with ketchup, ranch dressing, or another of your favorite dipping sauces.
