Zucchini Artichoke Bites – Bariatric Snacks


Zucchini Artichoke Bites // Weight Loss Surgery Recipes // Food Coach Me

For post-bariatric surgery patients, recipes that can also be called “bites” are usually a good fit :)

Meatloaf made in muffin pans, stuffed mushroom caps and these little Zucchini Artichoke Bites.

These little guys are packed with flavor and have no starchy ingredient involved. It’s very easy to make and even easier to eat! It doesn’t provide much protein so I recommend pairing it with a lean meat. We used a Greek Seasoning on chicken breast and served it alongside our bites. Gastric sleeve and gastric bypass patients are sure to enjoy the flavor with lots of leftovers!

This recipe was adapted from a Pampered Chef® Season’s Best cookbook and is easiest to prepare with their amazing cooking tools. The recipe can be created just fine without the products but did make it super easy on me.
