Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I used frozen spinach which I just microwaved and then tossed with minced shallot. I then swapped whole wheat flour for the all-purpose, almond milk for skim, and added some crushed red pepper flake for a kick. Delicious!!! It made 8 dinner size portions which were 227 calories each. Submitted by:

Using a thawed, squeezed dried box of frozen spinach makes this an easy recipe to make without a special trip to the grocery store. Also great with chopped artichoke hearts. Chokes add fiber, texture and better flavor. A dab of cheddar on the top also adds a bit of color. Submitted by:

OMG so many possibilities with this recipe! I'm taking them to our NYE get together due to the incredible rating seen here. Will definitely make these again but with less butter and whole wheat flour along with any other fat reduction ideas! Yum!! Submitted by:

Cut the sodium almost in half by substituting Swiss cheese for the moz. Submitted by:

Sorry: the calorie count is very off! 1 c flour=611, not 432 cal. A stick of butter is 814 cal not 792. The cheese=678 cal, not 312. And "0" cal listed for 10 oz of spinach?? Even with using just half the amount of butter and light cheese, I am still 257 cal over the recipe estimate. Check the math. Submitted by:

This looks good if salt & butter are reduced, in particular. I will try them. However, the title's a misnomer because these are not brownies by any stretch of the imagination. They are quiche squares. "Spinach brownies" are chocolate squares with brownies added for extra nutrition. Submitted by:

I'm going to make w/ changes. I'll use whole wheat pastry flour(sneak gr. flax into), use mayonnaise instead of butter saving about 10g of sat. fat. per T mayo, use 2% mozz, add wheat germ on top, add garlic, egg subst, nix boiling & squeeze dry frozen, add tomato or red peppers, water chestnuts..

These are SO GOOD. I took them to work and people freaked. I substituted half of the flour with whole wheat flour, used unsalted butter, and held back a little on the added salt. You could definitely get by with less butter... 3/4 of the stick should still be plenty. Great recipe! Submitted by:

These are so good! The taste almost like a crustless quiche. They look just like the picture. Be careful of the serving size because two servings (158.4 calories) can fit into the palm of your hand. You could lighten the recipe up like others have suggested. I would recommend this to EVERYONE! Submitted by:
