I am one of the luckiest moms to have my little girls eating broccoli and even enjoying it. I like to try various ways of introducing this healthy vegetable in their diet and these Broccoli and Cheese balls is one of them. I really love the way they turned out, and not only they have broccoli but I also added oats to bring more nutritional value.

These healthy broccoli and cheese balls are really easy to prepare, and you can serve as they are with a dipping sauce, or use them in tortilla wraps, as a side dish or a great snack on the go. They also can be made as an healthy appetizer for parties and family gatherings. They keep well refrigerated for several days or frozen for later use.
