    I have started using the One Handed Cooks website for sweet and savoury recipe ideas.

    DD 2.5 isn't a big fan of veggies. DD and DH are a big fan of their carrot cookies and muffins.

    There are some interesting recipes in the free Woolworths magazine this month which are sweet recipes with hidden veg (e.g, carrot and caramel swiss roll, chocolate beetroot bundt cake, pumpkin and golden syrup muffins) and for the more adventurous cauliflower cheesecake and an espresso mushroom cake (you could exclude the coffee).

    Check out veggie smugglers website.
    The chicken sausage rolls are delicious.
    Also a thought - pumpkin scones are big in this house. My 2 yo eats NO veg but pigs out on these.

    What about meatballs?
    Gary mehigan has a cookbook out, and his meatball recipe uses a carrot purée to bind the meatballs instead of egg.

    I don't have the recipes to share but I imagine they'd be fairly easy to dig up. A lady I used to work with regularly made chocolate beetroot cake, zucchini and chocolate brownies. Chocolate chip and chickpea cookies. All were absolutely delicious!

    I often make basic chocolate muffins and add mashed pumpkin or sweet potato or avocado to them for a bit of a veg boost.
