Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Cooling Time: 5 Minutes | Total Time: 35 Minutes | Yield: 12 Cheese Bombs


for the dough:

  • 1½ cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt and pepper

for the filling:

  • 2 mozzarella cheese sticks, each cut into 8 pieces
  • ¼ cup bacon bits, or finely diced cooked bacon
  • 1 small fresh jalapeño, finely diced
  • finely chopped fresh chives, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a bowl, and microwave it for one minute. Stir, then cook for another 30 seconds. Add in almond flour, a beaten egg, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  • Let the dough cool enough so that you can handle it, then knead until smooth. Add extra almond flour if it is too sticky to work with.
  • Take a small portion of the dough and flatten it out into your hand. Add a slice of mozzarella cheese string, a few bacon bits, and some finely diced fresh jalapeño.
  • Form the dough around the filling, ensuring that all sides are completely sealed. Place it on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Continue with the rest of the dough: this recipe makes 12 cheese bombs.
  • Sprinkle any remaining bacon bits over the top of each bomb, then roast for 10 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly, then garnish with chopped chives and serve warm.
