  • ½ cup Coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon Pysllium husk powder
  • 6 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 medium Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Boiling Water


  • 5 oz Cream cheese softened
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers deseeded & finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • ¼ cup Mozzarella cheese grated


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees

Make the Dough

  • Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and blend well.
  • Add the oil and egg and stir until combined.
  • Add the boiling water, gradually until you have a dough. Firm up with your hands.
  • Roll out the dough by placing it on a piece of parchment paper, place another piece of parchment paper on top, then roll out. 
  • Cut out circles to cover the muffin tin spaces (I used a wine glass, but a large cookie cutter would do too).
  • Place the circles in a greased mini muffin tin and ensure that all the sides are covered with the dough.

Make the Filling

  • In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, jalapenos, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese together.
  • Spoon the cheese mixture into the dough cups.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is firm and golden.
  • Eat and argue over the last one!
