My dad puts zucchini in everything. Smoothies, ice cream, salads, cereal. It’s clearly quite the versatile food. But after the Zucchini Crisp we made a few days ago I was about sweet toothed out. (Okay that’s a lie. I’m never sweet toothed out. But the nutritionist in me was begging for something that didn’t involve sugar.) And so these Zucchini Cheddar Bites came to be!

Ingredients for these zucchini bites

  • Zucchini: Zucchini makes up a bulk of the bite! We’ll shred then coax the moisture out of these, leaving the peel on of course for added fiber and vitamin K.
  • Carrots: Most any recipe involving shredded cheese can also act as a vessel in which to sneak shredded carrots. Muahahaha.
  • Egg: The glue that holds these flavor bombs together with a little punch of protein!
  • Cheddar Cheese: High in fat? Yea. The very foundation of these warm, tender, flavorful bites? Yes.
  • Breadcrumbs: Use a whole grain variety to pack in a few more B vitamins and fiber.
  • Onion, garlic, green onions: No dish would be complete without our favorite alliums.

      Thanks so much Kaylene! Let me know how you like em! I nearly ate the whole batch in one sitting.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Although I love using the shredded zucchini in breads I thought I’d give this recipe a try since I love zucchini so much. This will make a great side vegetable when I make my roasted chicken tonight for dinner. Thanks

    1. Sarah says:

      You can really work zucchini into anything. I’ve seen people put it in oatmeal! Enjoy!

  3. Nissa says:

    These are delicious! I made them (added a little more cheese and bread crumbs than the recipe stated) and I couldn’t stop eating them. Delicious both hot and cold. Am making them again Tuesday so I can take them to work!!
