Well as you might have guessed there is no chocolate in this recipe. It is a savory type of bar that is one of the most delicious and easy things I’ve made. Yes, that good. It’s got major spanakopita vibes. My family devoured them in less than 15 minutes. I guess we need to double the batch next time.

ingredients:

The spinach, feta and mozzarella are the key players in this recipe. I roughly chopped the baby spinach, diced the scallions and chopped the dill. These are also the main characters in spanakopita. And lets not forget the feta. But here it shares the stage with mozzarella.

The flour can be substituted with oat flour, although I would add a little more oat flour than a cup. Next time I will make them with olive oil instead of butter just to try out the variance in taste and texture. Should be fine, in my opinion, to substitute it in for the butter. The crusty brown top is one of the best parts of this bar. Make sure you sprinkle on that grated Parmesan cheese.

Ingredients 

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • 10 oz baby spinach, rough chop
  • 2 tbs dill, chopped
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbs grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Lightly spray a medium size baking dish with olive oil. Mine was 10.5 x 7.5 inches.
  • In a large, deep pan, heat 1 tsp oil on medium. Cook your scallions until they soften: 1 or 2 minutes. Add half the spinach and sauté until mostly wilted, season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove to a colander to drain and pat dry with paper towels to remove excess liquids. Add the remaining oil to your pan and repeat the process with the remaining spinach.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the milk, eggs, butter and mix. Lastly fold in the spinach mixture, dill, mozzarella and feta until just combined. Transfer to your baking dish and spread out evenly. Sprinkle top with grated Parmesan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until top turns golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes prior to slicing.
