Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 30 min

Keywords: bake blender snack side appetizer gluten-free low-carb vegetarian comfort food American Jewish

Ingredients (22 Cakes)

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 c. almond flour/meal (for mixing), and extra for coating
  • 1/2 c. coconut flour
  • 3 eggs + 2 egg whites (beaten)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 c. coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper (and any other seasonings) to taste


1. Cut the cauliflower into florets and put it in the food processor until it’s finely grated.

2. Peel and shred the raw sweet potatoes using a cheese grater

3. Cut broccoli into florets, and gently pulse in the food processor until it’s in tiny little floret-et-ets… (it’s a word. i made it up.)

4. Put all your cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, and onion in a large mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix well (adjust flour content til it has a consistency in which it holds together)

5. Add your spices – I used salt, Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning, DASH of smoked paprika, and garlic & pepper seasoning, along with some grated parmesean.

6. Roll into balls the size of a small apple and coat lightly in almond flour – place on greased baking sheet.

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees, or until they are kinda spongy and crisp looking on the outside.
