I learned this recipe from the fabulous folks at the Dartmouth Family Centre when my child was young enough to participate in their fantastic drop-in programs. The kids just gobble them up, and even the adults were sneaking seconds and thirds! I like these squares because they make such a nourishing and satisfying snack. With nutritious ingredients like spinach, eggs, cheese and flour, they really provide a great combo of carbohydrate, protein and fat. And they taste fantastic!
Make a double batch and freeze some. Kids can shred cheese, measure flour, etc. These are great for snacks, picnic lunches, or serving as a fancy appetizer at your next family gathering. Enjoy!
