Kids’ Kitchen: Cheesy Spinach Quinoa Bites

Cheesy Spinach Quinoa Bites

Holy health nuts, batman! This is one of the recipes I’ve made recently for River that he has absolutely scarfed down. Probably because it seems to him like a mini muffin (aka: carbs) and as I’ve previously mentioned about my little guy, he’s a carb king. These little bites are teeny flavorful and pack a punch of super nutritious spinach and quinoa. Enjoy!

*makes about 36 bites


  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups chopped frozen spinach, thawed and dried
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
