My baby boy turns one on Saturday, and I still can't believe it. This year has flown by! Having a three year old and now a one year old really makes you realize just how fast time goes by.

My one year old has been the best baby, but he is turning into a pretty picky eater. He LOVES meat, cheese and potatoes, but is pretty finicky about fruits and vegetables. Sweet potatoes and broccoli are two vegetables that are hit or miss. Sometimes he eats them and sometimes he tosses them on the ground. So I decided to take the two and turn them into a recipe that will always be a hit with him.

These sweet potato and broccoli bites are slightly sweet with a cheesy flavor making them a healthy recipe any toddler (or adult) will love.

Five simple ingredients come together quickly to make this toddler approved recipe. Using steam in the bag sweet potatoes and broccoli make the preparation quicker and easier.

Simply combine all of the ingredients in a standing mixer and scoop out small spoonful's to form into patties, and place on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes to create a golden crust.

These healthy sweet potato and broccoli bites are sure to be gobbled up by the whole family.
