These spinach tomato bites are PERFECT for babies! They are packed with veggies and such a fun bite sized shape. I know that most toddlers don’t love veggies, but if you can get your toddler to try these, they taste amazing. With only 4 ingredients, the spinach tomato bites are super easy to make. Your whole family will love them!

Why Spinach Tomato Bites are Great:

1. Nutrient Powerhouse: These bites are packed with goodness from the get-go! Spinach brings in a load of vitamins and minerals, while tomatoes provide a burst of lycopene and antioxidants.

2. Texture Exploration: Baby-led weaning is all about letting your little one explore various textures. The combination of the slightly chewy spinach, juicy diced tomatoes, and the cheesy goodness offers a range of textures to keep those tiny fingers and developing teeth engaged.

3. Self-Feeding Practice: Spinach Tomato Bites are the perfect size for your toddler’s tiny hands. The small, muffin-sized portions are easy to grasp, encouraging your little one to practice self-feeding and develop their fine motor skills.

4. Packed With Flavor: These bites aren’t just nutritious – they’re bursting with flavor! The sweetness of the tomatoes complements the earthiness of spinach, and the melted cheddar cheese just ties everything together.

How to Make Spinach Tomato Bites:

Ingredients:

1 cup spinach, finely chopped
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs


Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Step 2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach, diced tomato, shredded cheddar cheese, and eggs. Mix everything thoroughly until well combined.
Step 3. Scoop the mixture into a mini muffin pan, filling each cup almost to the top. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the bites barely start to brown.
Step 4: Allow them to cool slightly before serving to your toddler.


Substitutions:

Feel free to get creative and tailor the recipe to your toddler’s preferences or any dietary needs. You can substitute the cheddar cheese with another mild cheese or even opt for a dairy-free alternative. Additionally, consider adding a pinch of mild spices for extra flavor if your little one enjoys them.

Storage Tips:


If your toddler doesn’t gobble up all the Spinach Tomato Bites at once, you can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To ensure they remain soft and appealing, consider reheating them in the oven or toaster oven rather than the microwave.

  1. Love all your recipes! About to try this one but I just have a regular muffin pan not a mini one. How long would I bake them for?

  2. 5 stars
    AMAZING TASTE and SUPER FAST! That’s all I can say.
    The only this is for my oven it took longer to cook, about 40 min, not sure why. Anyway at the end the taste was very tasteful! Also, just for curiosity, when you say 1 cup of spinach, do you mean “full” spinach or one cup of chopped spinach? That was my only concern. Thank you so much
    PS.
    I’m so happy I found your website . You make my life much easier and less stressful. THANK YOU
