“A delicious, warm treat that is much healthier than the store bought cheese puffs. Eat them warm with your kids and enjoy! Who can resist warm, gooey cheese balls!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine water, butter, oil, salt and pepper; bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat and add flour, all at once. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mix is a smooth paste. Return to low heat and cook for about 3 minutes longer, stirring. Remove from heat and cool for 2 minutes.
  3. Next, lightly whisk the eggs and 3/4 egg whites. With a wooden spoon beat 1/4 of the egg mix into the flour paste; beat until absorbed. Repeat 3 more times until the paste is smooth and glossy. Stir in the cheese.
  4. Spoon one inch mounds onto the baking pan, spaced one and a half inches apart. Lightly beat the remaining egg whites and brush over the puffs. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light brown. Serve warm.
