Spinach Nuggets

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Motivated Mama

This is a very easy, very healthy and very yummy recipe from wholesometoddlerfood.com. It's great for kids but I have been asked to make it for adult social events. It shocks people because it is so healthy yet looks and tastes "unhealthy".

Can you store these in the freezer? My son likes to eat these at school, but I want to make sure they're freezer friendly first
