Mama's New Recipes

So, I thought I would share this yummy new recipe I got from this mama... 
BTW I love her blog, she has such great ideas.

Its the perfect snack for both baby and mama.
And nutritional to boot!

They are Spinach Nuggets.
And soooooo easy to make.

You first use this recipe
Spinach Nuggets
from Wholesome Toddler

time 35 mins
yield 28
cuisine Kids
ingredients
16 ounces frozen spinach, cooked drained and chopped if needed
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup flax seed meal (if you don't have these things add 1/4 cup more bread crumbs) or 1/4 cup wheat germ (if you don't have these things add 1/4 cup more bread crumbs)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (you could also try cheddar flavored with sundried tomatoes and basil)
3 eggs
directions
1. Heat oven to 375.
2. Lightly coat baking sheet with oil or use a non-stick mini muffin pan
3. Combine all ingredients well.
4. Shape into nuggets or spoon into muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. (Turn nuggets over after 15 minutes).
notes:• Can use Ranch or Ketchup for dipping sauce if desired.



I used a cookie scoop and scooped them out onto a baking sheet and then just flattened them.


And WALAH!
They don't look to appetizing but they are suprisingly delicious.

I put some in the fridge to snack on through out the week and then put the rest in the freezer.

I am guessing you could do these with broccoli too...why not?!

Here are some additional recipes I have run across that I want to try next.
I am always looking for new and healthy snacks to try with C.
They all came from Wholesometoddlerfood.comhttp://www.wholesometoddlerfood.com/toddlersnacks.htm

*Granola makes these Energy Balls more tasty and adds a nice crunch!
