These Protein Packed Broccoli Cheese Bites are packed with quinoa and chickpeas to give them even extra protein! They’re easy to make and healthy too! Toddler approved 🙂
Sometimes I cruise through the frozen food section and impulsively throw things into my cart that I think Eli would enjoy. Most of the time I feel like they don’t have much flavor and that I could make a much better version myself.
These Broccoli Cheese Bites would be one of those foods! Sometimes you don’t realize how easy homemade is until you give it a try!
These Protein Packed Broccoli Cheese Bites are my new favorite easy snack to make at home. You only need a few ingredients and they can easily be made vegan using vegan cheese instead of regular.
I call these Protein Packed because there’s four sources of protein in these bites: Cheese, Broccoli, Quinoa and Chickpeas. The quinoa and chickpeas also really help to hold everything together so you don’t even need eggs or breadcrumbs in this recipe.
These Protein Packed Broccoli Cheese Bites are really great to have around for healthy snacking! They’re freezer friendly and stay good in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can easily re-heat them in the oven, stovetop or microwave for a quick and easy snack or toddler lunch.
They’re also a great way to hide the veggies if you have picky kids! The quinoa and chickpea help to mask the green color from the broccoli and they have such a great cheesy flavor that goes perfectly with the broccoli. I hope you and your kids enjoy these as much as we do!Print
