This is the tastiest way to serve spinach that we have found yet! Even those who are not spinach fans will gobble these right up, we promise. These would also make great “burgers” or wrap fillings for lower ratios, just shape them into a patty instead.

*This recipe was updated to reflect a 4:1 ratio recipe since this it is the most requested ratio. For lower ratios, simply add more spinach and cheese or follow the measurements provided in the video for a 3.5:1 ratio.

4:1 ratio recipes are provided in grams ONLY. Due to the accuracy needed to achieve 4:1 ratio recipes, it is not advisable to use customary units of measure (cups, tablespoons, etc.). Learn more about the 5 variations of ketogenic diet therapies.


A small amount of oil cooked out of the bites, but almost all of it reabsorbed while they cooled. If you are concerned about this, bake them in silicone cup cake liners or cookie molds. The xanthan gum used in the video helps prevent oil form cooking out but does not have to be used.

50 grams frozen spinach, cooked, weighed, drain water, chop small.
15 grams egg whites
15 grams butter, melted
15 grams olive oil
7 grams almond flour
4 grams parmesan cheese, hard, grated
salt/pepper/pinch of garlic powder


1Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2Prepare the spinach as described above.
3Mix in all of the ingredients and season it to your liking.
4Make sure that the mixture is very well combined. It will be on the “wet” side, you can put it in the freezer for 15 minutes to let it firm up a little.
5Scoop out bite size portions of the mixture and drop them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
6Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
7Let them sit on the cookie sheet to cool and reabsorb any oil that has cooked out for a few minutes.
8Serve with a dipping sauce if desired.


You could increase the fat or add an additional fat source such as mayonnaise to the spinach mixture. They may not turn out as dense, but become more pancake like.
