Light and cheesy Brazilian pao de queijo. Gluten free cheese rolls mix in the blender and baked until tall and pillowy.



  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1 cup freshlly grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cups sour tapioca flour/starch


  1. Cook’s note: The traditional Brazilian recipe calls for sour tapioca flour, I highly recommend using this flour for the best texture and flavor. I have a link to the flour right below the recipe. If you end up using regular tapioca flour, you will have to use 2 cups for the recipe. Tapioca flour is the same as tapioca starch.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add the first 4 ingredients to a blender, and mix on high for 5-10 seconds. With the blender off, add the baking powder and salt. Turn the blender on medium, add the tapioca flour one large spoonful at a time. Once all the flour is added and the mixture has blended together, turn off blender. Carefully pour batter into a mini muffin tin that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and fill almost all the way to the top.

  3. Bake for 25 minutes, or until nicely golden brown.

    1. This recipe is designed to only work with tapioca starch / cassava flour. That’s how it’s traditionally made in Brazil.

  1. Hi Bobby…
    I don’t see the link to the sour tapioca flour you mentioned for making the cheesy bread rolls. Many thanks .

  2. You mentioned that we can use tapioca flour if we don’t have sour tapioca but it won’t taste the same. Will it still be enjoyable to eat??
