You’ve played hide-and-seek a gazillion times with your kids. They’re small enough to hide in your bathroom vanity, while you stand in a coat closet with your feet covered by knee-high boots. But this game is so much fun for everyone when you take it to the kitchen. Hiding a nutritious, green vegetable in these power-snack squares creates a surprisingly delicious flavor and cake-like texture. The best part is you only have to “play” one round, and you’ve got a hearty, after-school treat all week long!
