Baked Zucchini Bites

Who doesn’t love bite-sized food? I can’t think of anyone!! These little zucchini bites are deliciously healthy, perfect for entertaining, and kid friendly!

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups zucchini, shredded
  • 1/4 cup of feta, crumbled
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, diced fine
  • several sprigs of parsley chopped fine
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of Ezekiel bread, toasted and crumbled  (to use as bread crumbs)
  • salt and pepper to taste

First, shred 3-4 medium zucchini in a food processor.

Using your hands, squeeze the zucchini tightly to remove excess moisture and transfer to a large mixing bowl.

In your mixing bowl, use your hands combine the shredded zucchini, feta, garlic, diced green onions, parsley, egg, crumbled Ezekiel bread, salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. If the mixture is too runny, simply add more crumbled Ezekiel bread.

Set the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is pre-heating, roll the mixture into small, round bite-size pieces (about the size of a golf ball) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 12 -15 mins or until firm.

These zucchini bites are delicious on their own but you can also serve them with marinara sauce (as pictured), BBQ sauce, honey mustard, or even organic ketchup! They’d be perfect as an afternoon snack when the kids get home from school or as a topping on a salad or over spaghetti; the possibilities are endless!

I served these recently at a party as an appetizer and the kids and adults both gobbled them up! The meat eaters even thought they were real meatballs!! I like to make a large batch and then freeze them, that way I’ve got a fast healthy snack always on hand 🙂
