Broccoli Bites

A healthy snack has almost never been so tasty.  As soon as I found this I knew it had to be done.  This was a great Sunday afternoon snack with ranch dressing for dipping!

Broccoli Bites
adapted from Kim's Healthy Eats

1 12 oz bag Broccoli Wokly, crowns only, cut into small pieces
1 small carrot, peeled and shredded
1 garlic clove, pressed
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cup panko
1 tbsp Italian seasonings
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350F.  Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Steam broccoli for a few minutes, until it's all a bright green color.  Drain and set aside to cool.  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.  Ball up the mixture in balls slightly smaller than your palms and squeeze hard to combine.  Place on parchment and bake 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
