Naturally gluten-free, and topped with the oh-so-famous Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. Brazilian Cheese balls, AKA Pão de Queijo, are pillowy, warm, and have a light, yet super cheesy flavor!
Soft, fluffy, cheesy bread balls! Naturally gluten-free, and so much fun to make. A perfect & delicious side for a balanced dinner! I love pairing these with Baked salmon and a side salad. YUM!
*Reminder: this recipe is Gluten free for those like me that struggle with gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease. Gluten free diets are only recommended for those with these medical issues or specifically prescribed by your physician. A gluten free diet is NOT any healthier than eating a regular diet with gluten.

These Gluten-Free Brazilian Cheesy Bread Balls (with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning!) were made with parmesan cheese, but feel free to try different variations!I love these as a simple dinner side staple. We often have baked salmon, a big veggie-packed salad, and these cheese balls on the side. A perfectly balanced meal that leaves us feeling good AND satisfied.
When it comes to having a healthy relationship to food, it’s important to make room for everyday foods (nourishing foods that make our bodies feel good, give us important nutrients, etc.) , but also FUN foods, too! We CAN eat just because we enjoy a food! Our diet-obsessed culture typically views foods like these as”bad”, but I’m here to tell you – ALL foods can fit into a healthy eating pattern. You don’t need to go 100% vegan, 100% dairy-free, 100% sugar-free, or low-carb – and quite honestly, that can often times make your relationship to food much worse and make you LESS healthy. The more we restrict, tell ourselves a food is “bad”, or avoid it, the more power you are giving that food. Eventually, if you’re “cutting out” a favorite food of yours, we know that the pendulum often swings in the other direction – resulting in overeating and binge eating. Balance is important, and healthy eating is all about what you’re doing most of the time, so you don’t have to be perfect! (Who wants to be perfect anyways? BORING!)
