Spinach Bites

You can find the complete recipe at The Charlie Foundation’s ketogenic diet recipe section.

This is the tastiest way to serve spinach that I have found yet… No one in my house is a spinach lover and these were gobbled right up, even by my non-keto 5-year-old boy (and me too)!  I served these with Walden Farms Ranch dressing.  I did not include it in the calculation since some people can not tolerate it.  Make sure you calculate it in if you would like a dipping sauce.  They were equally delicious on their own though!

    Question about draining the water out of the spinach..are you squeezing out the excess to to make it dry or just draining it through a colander/sieve? The weight changes a lot when you squeeze out the water, but a lot of the water/juice from the spinach cooks out and doesnt reabsorb if you don’t. Please explain.

      Hi, The way the spinach is calculated in the ketocalulator is: cooked, then drained. This means let the excess water drain off, but don’t squeeze it. For the recipe, weigh the spinach like I just described, then squeeze off the extra liquid to make it very dry. Does this make sense?? If you are still unsure, ask again!

        That’s what made sense to me. My son loves these. Just a note when increasing to 4:1 ratio…I tried just increasing oil/butter, but too much seeped out…I increased the ratio by grinding macadamia nuts into a butter instead. Adds a nice crunchy texture.

        Thanks so much for sharing the 4:1 info… Hope they went over well!

    Any reason for the almond flour? Would love to try this but my kiddies are allergic to nuts 🙂 Otherwise, looks yummy!

      Almond flour contributes to the protein, you could try upping the egg white and using coconut flour instead. 3 grams should do the job, let me know if you try it, I’ll post it under the notes as a modification.
