Parmesan Garlic Poppers
The low carb aspect is created with ground flaxseed, oat fiber and vital wheat gluten, and oat flour instead of the traditional bleached flour. These four ingredients together, though, will make these poppers fluffy and chewy just like you would hope in a popper.
We start these poppers in a traditional way, with yeast. Mixing water, yeast and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Let it sit while the yeast gets foamy, this takes about 12 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix other dry ingredients. Once mixed together, fold into the yeast mixture in the mixing bowl. Then add in oil and garlic. If you have a dough hook, use this and mix on low for 1 minute. Scrape the sides to make sure everything gets into the middle to mix in.
Now it’s time to turn up the speed. Mix together for 4 minutes or until a dough ball forms.
Now we get to the fun part! Do you love kneading dough? I sure do! Kids love helping with this part too! You’ll want to knead and work the dough for a few minutes then roll into a flat ball.
Cut the dough into 3 sections.
Cut those sections evenly into little chunks. I got 30 all together. Put them on a baking sheet so they can rise. Make sure they are spaced out so they don’t rise into each other. They will double in size, so keep that in mind. Cover with a towel and let rise for an hour.
Preheat oven to 350.
When the poppers have doubled in size, put in hot oven for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and brush with a melted butter & garlic mixture. Dust the top with Parmesan cheese & serve.
Your friends and family will go wild for these Garlic Parmesan Poppers, if they get a chance to taste one!
