Let’s Bake:

  1. Prep Work:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a baking pan with the teaspoon of oil.
  2. Blanch the Broccoli:
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and blanch for about 2 minutes until they’re bright green but still crisp. Drain and chop into small pieces.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, beat the eggs, olive oil, and milk until well combined. Stir in the chopped dill, sliced scallions, crumbled feta, shredded mozzarella, and grated Pecorino cheese.
  5. Bring It Together:
    • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Gently fold in the chopped broccoli.
  6. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    • Let the brownie bars cool in the pan for a few minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Enjoy these Broccoli Feta Brownie Bars as a novel snack, a side dish, or even a light meal. They’re a fantastic way to enjoy your veggies in a fun and flavorful form!
