Amazing Pan sem Queijo – Brazilian Cheese Bread

I know I know… I am late again with the recipe from our last live! I am organizing things better so this don’t happen again, promised!!

But here it goes the recipe that you must try!! It’s to die for, believe me! Probably my favorite Brazilian snack! 

I strong advise you to double the recipe and freeze because you will want more the next day!!


  • 150g cooked white beans
  • 100g cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 150g polvilho azedo – you can find in Latin shops
  • 100g of manioc startch (polvilho doce) (you can find those in Asia Markets, Latin or Portuguese Shops and amazon)
  • 1 tablespoon chia or flax seeds
  • 60g olive oil
  • ¼ cup water(optional)


  1. Blend the cooked white beans and sweet potatoes in the food processor for 1 minute;
  2. Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until it becomes a dough thick enough to mold (bread dough texture);
  3. If too dry, you can add a bit more of water, slowly until you reach the good texture;4
  4. Let the dough cool down in the fridge for about 1 or 2 hours(optional);
  5. Make small balls of dough using your hands;
  6. You can Bake them at 180°C or store in the freezer and use them when you feel like. No need to defrost before baking. Just Pre-heat the oven at 200°C and bake for about 30 minutes; 
  7. I served mine with vegan requeijao (Brazilian cream cheese) but feel free to enjoy as you prefer, some avocado cream is also great with it!!
