Keto dough balls baked with coconut flour and flavoured with olives and sun dried tomatoes.  A delicious appetiser or snack.   Perhaps a delicious addition to a bowl of soup?

dough balls


When coconut flour and psyllium husk powder are combined, they make a great low carb and gluten free dough.  Add cheese and some flavouring for a delicious snack!   I used to love the dough balls at Pizza Express so try my best to try and recreate that soft, doughy balls of joy.   This is fairly close for a low carb and gluten free version!

I served these with a small bowl of garlic butter for dipping which I thoroughly recommend doing!  For a quick garlic butter, just add some garlic powder to soft butter, blend and voila! Dip away my friend! Dip away!

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Pinwheels

These cream cheese jalapeno pinwheels are the perfect balance of smooth and spicy. They are great as an appetizer or snack.

When I baked them, they barely lasted as we both fought over them like a pack of ravenous wolves.  I thought that I was going to be safe with these as I adore spice and heat more than the Chief Taster.  I sadly misjudged him and watched in horror as he popped one after another under the guise of “just another to taste”.   With a mild panic that I would not get any to eat myself, the plate had to be removed!   


I used my current favourite dough mixture with the combination of coconut flour and psyllium husk powder.   This dough mixture just keeps giving with the various recipes that I can make with it!  I’ve made other pinwheel recipes but this is possibly my favourite, purely as I just love the filling.  

Low Carb Appetizers

You could serve these appetisers warm or cold but either way they won’t last!  For the meat eaters amongst you may want to add bits of bacon to these.  For me, they are perfect the way they are.
