Ingredients

170 g spinach 6 cups
1/4 cup brown sugar 50 g
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
1 eggs size large
1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
1 cup rolled oats 90 g
1/2 cup oat bran 50 g
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 190 g
1/2 tsp baking soda 1 g
1/2 tsp baking powder 1 g
salt
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped 26 g
2 tbsp raisins 20 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to prepare the patties.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the spinach: Wash and drain rapidly then transfer to a pot or saucepan without adding any water. The water trapped in the leaves after gentle shaking is enough to cook them. Cover and cook over high heat 3-4 min until the leaves wilt and turn very deep green. Avoid overcooking otherwise the spinach will become brownish. Drain well and let cool for a couple minutes.
  3. Put the cooled spinach, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and oil in a food processor. Run until a purée is formed and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the rolled oats, oat bran, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add the spinach mixture to the dry ingredients then mix. Stir in the nuts and raisins.
  6. Form the mixture into 8 patties then place them on the cookie sheet. Lightly press down on the patties to flatten them.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven until the patties turn light brown around the edges, about 13-15 min. Let them stand on the sheet a few minutes, then transfer them to a rack, using a metal spatula. Let cool down at least 30 min before serving.
