These spinach and zucchini fritters are an easy-to-make, delicious snack perfect for kids and adults alike! I make a batch of these every single week and pop them in the freezer so I always have an quick, nutritious and savoury snack on hand for my toddler.

Eloise LOVES these. They're made with only a few ingredients and you can switch up the veggies depending on what you have on hand. Some of my favourites are:

zucchini and finely grated carrot (use 1 medium zucchini and 1 small carrot)
zucchini (use 2 medium zucchinis)
broccoli (use approx. 100g cooked and chopped broccoli)

If using carrot or broccoli, make sure you've squeezed out excess water using your hands, just like the recipe instructs for the zucchini.
