This savory twist on a classic brownie combines the rich flavors of feta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses with spinach and herbs to create a deliciously unique treat. Perfect for brunch, as a side dish, or for a creative appetizer, these “brownies” are sure to surprise and delight any palate. Here’s how to make them:


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • 10 oz baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp dill, chopped
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted (or substitute with additional olive oil for a lighter version)
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the Spinach:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced scallions and sauté until soft, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the chopped spinach to the skillet, and cook until wilted, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. If there’s excess moisture, gently press the spinach to drain.
  3. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Combine the Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, mix the milk, lightly beaten eggs, and melted butter. Stir in the cooled spinach mixture.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  6. Add Cheeses:
    • Fold in the shredded mozzarella, crumbled feta, and grated Parmesan cheese into the batter until well distributed.
  7. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the “brownies” to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before slicing into squares.
    • Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Herb Variations: Feel free to experiment with other herbs like basil or mint for a different flavor profile.
  • Adding Texture: Consider adding pine nuts or chopped walnuts to the batter for added crunch.
  • Serving Suggestions: These brownies pair well with a fresh tomato salad, a dollop of Greek yogurt, or as a standalone snack.
