Toddler Bites -- SPINACH edition

I originally stumbled upon these toddler-pleasing nuggets of awesome (yea, Momma likes them too!) on Cheryl's blo home and am so thankful. These spinach nuggets are easy, healthy, and so kid-friendly. (Well, our little guy does love to eat all things green, so you decide) I don't have any pics, so be sure to visit Cheryl's original post for some good for you food porn! 

Spinach Nuggets
35 mins

16 ounces frozen spinach, cooked drained and chopped if needed
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup flax seed meal (if you don't have these things add 1/4 cup more bread crumbs) or 1/4 cup wheat germ (if you don't have these things add 1/4 cup more bread crumbs)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (you could also try cheddar flavored with sundried tomatoes and basil)
3 eggs
*optional--cooked corn

1. Heat oven to 375.
2. Lightly coat baking sheet with oil or use a non-stick mini muffin pan
3. Combine all ingredients well.
4. Shape into nuggets or spoon into muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. (Turn nuggets over after 15 minutes).
notes:• Can use Ranch or Ketchup for dipping sauce if desired.

Wait; there's more! Make sure you buy a couple of packs of frozen spinach while grocery shopping and whip up some Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken. This isn't hard; I promise!  (And if you don't have cheddar, use whatever you've got!) 

You've got to eat your spinach!
