Feeding kids has definitely changed the way I look at recipes. I still make things that we made before having children, but I have to make kid versions of some of our favorites. I also have had to find different ways to incorporate veggies into their foods. Broccoli is a favorite of ours, but even steamed broccoli can get old. That is why I decided to try out these bread balls.
Bread balls are very popular in this house. If I make anything in the ball form, they are likely to get eaten. If you don’t have a cakeball maker, this recipe can easily be made into a mini muffin. Mini muffins would be about the same idea as these bread balls. This is another great option for a lunch for Finnegan and a lot of green vegetables added. He loves them!
Broccoli, Spinach & Zucchini Bread Balls
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup broccoli, cooked and diced
1 cup zucchini, shredded
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 cup milk
3 tbsp olive oil
Mix all of the dry ingredients with the vegetables. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix everything together. Heat up cake ball maker and spray with cooking spray. Add in 1 tbsp of batter to each hole and let cook for 4 minutes. Check to make sure cooked through. These freeze well and can be heated up in less than a minute in the microwave.
If making muffins, bake in a 350°F oven for 15 – 20 minutes.
