These Zucchini Cheddar Bites are packed with hidden vegetables and are so addictive!

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: The 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.

    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

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