My mom used to make spinach balls as an appetizer for special occasions and gatherings, and I loved them! It was always hard to save enough for the company. This is a clean eating version that’s too good to save for parties only. Try it as a savory breakfast or snack on the go! I eat them plain, but a nice sauce to accompany them would be a great addition. If you have any ideas, send ’em my way!


  • One 8-10 oz. package of frozen, chopped spinach, cooked slightly and drained
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup flaxmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil or oregano
  • 1 TBSP fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (you could switch this out for coconut oil, if desired)


  1. Cook spinach lightly so it is just defrosted, drain and squeeze dry
  2. Mix spinach with dry ingredients, add butter and eggs and mix until well combined.
  3. Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Place in fridge for 1/2 hour, then bake in oven at 350 F for 20-30 minutes. Turn once during cooking time and cook until lightly browned on both sides.
