Recipe: Feelfood’s Coconut Oil Yuca “Cheetos”

Everyone’s jumping on the World Cup excitement bandwagon, and why not? (Um, have you seen the players?)

And in case you’re more skilled at serving game-watching snacks than figuring out penalties (guilty), we asked Latin American-influenced healthy hotspot Feelfood for some Brazil-themed menu ideas.

Turns out Brazilians eat tons of the starchy tuber yuca (or cassava). But while you’ll usually find it deep fried or used to make crepe-like Brazilian tapioca, Feelfood’s chefs make these better-for-you “cheese” puffs by baking with not-that-hard-to-find yuca flour. And they use coconut oil and flax seeds to add healthy fats.

The resulting “cheetos” are super light, have an almost cheesy flavor—and are not a bit fluorescent orange. Just don’t make them until your guests arrive, or you’ll eat them all before the first kick. —Jamie McKillop

Feelfood Coconut Oil Yuca Cheetos

3 eggs
2 cups + 2 Tbsp yuca flour
1 cup whole milk (milk alternatives not recommended)
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup flax seeds
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat milk in saucepan until it boils. Mix the yuca flour with milk, coconut oil, and salt. Once fully mixed, add the eggs one by one. Mix until the texture is not soft. Put into pastry bag. Draw small rings on your baking sheet, two centimeters apart. Figures will grow significantly. Let bake for 15 to 20 minutes and cool before serving.
