1 cup of whole wheat flour
I cup of cooked peas (from frozen, they’re greener than the canned ones)
1 cup of spinach
1/4 cup canola oil
tsp sea salt
Optional – 1 additional egg for egg wash to make them glossy.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a big bowl, add the cup of flour and tsp of sea salt.
Now, puree a cup of peas and a cup of spinach with the canola oil. If you don’t have a power tool, just mash your peas and chop chop chop that spinach.
Add the green mixture to the flour, and crack in your egg on top. Blend together until dough forms – it will be a damp dough. Wrap in parchment paper and put in fridge to chill for about 20 mins. (not a must but it helps set the dough beautifully).
Now, sprinkle dough with flour and roll out to about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. You don’t want them too thin or they will turn brown on the edges in the oven. Use your shamrock cookie cutter to cut out your shapes, or you can make circles or squares, they’re still gonna be green and be festive for St. Patty’s day.
*Optional – lightly beat an egg and brush it on top of the treats to make them glossy. You don’t have to do the egg wash, they’ll still look great without it.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
