|170 g||spinach||6 cups|
|1/4 cup||brown sugar||50 g|
|2 tbsp||canola oil||30 mL|
|1 serving||Egg Replacer|
|1 tsp||vanilla extract||5 mL|
|1 cup||oats, organic, gluten-free||90 g|
|50 g||quinoa flakes||1/2 cup|
|190 g||gluten-free flour (all purpose)||1 1/4 cup|
|1/2 tsp||baking soda||1 g|
|1/2 tsp||baking powder||1 g|
|1 pinch||salt||0.1 g|
|1/4 cup||walnuts, chopped||26 g|
|2 tbsp||raisins||20 g|
- Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350º. Line one or multiple baking sheet with parchment paper. Depending on the required amount, you may have to bake in batches. Prepare the Egg Replacer, then set aside.
- 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.
- Put the cooled spinach, brown sugar, Egg Replacer, vanilla, and oil in a food processor. Run until a purée is formed and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix the rolled oats, quinoa flakes, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the spinach mixture to the dry ingredients then mix. Stir in the nuts and raisins.
- Form the mixture into patties (1 patty is 1 portion) then place them on the cookie sheet(s). Lightly press down on the patties to flatten them.
- 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.
