Zucchini Veggie Bites

I wanted to make something delicious for Huxley to enjoy but also know they had a little bit of veggies in there.. and so these were created; super quickly on a lunch sleep! What I love about them is how moist they are, so they don’t crumb everywhere and easy for little hands to hold onto.

We used our We Might Be Tiny silicone baking molds which we love! the perfect snack size and so easy to fill – not sponsored in any way, we just love them!

This recipe will last a couple of days in the fridge, or you can freeze them and grab them when needed

Enjoy!

This recipe is nut free, gluten free, dairy free, high fibre and a delicious way to sneak in extra veggies
