Baked Butternut Squash & Chickpea Bites (Gluten-Free)
Super easy, healthy, and flavorful Baked Butternut Squash Chickpea Bites. Gluten-free, and makes for a perfect kid-friendly snack or meal!
These savory little cakes are something I came up with as a fun snack for my 17 month old. The texture is both delightfully chewy, and fluffy. And, the flavor is so delish! I promise.
While easy for little hands to grasp as a finger food, they also make a wonderful appetizer or snack for adults.
These tasty morsels are also full of fiber & protein, and being baked--they are super duper healthy, too!
