This is my simplified, low-carb version of a Greek favourite - Spanakopita, a delicious savoury pie filled with spinach and feta cheese.
It's adapted from Keto Morning Hot Pockets which went viral over the social media. Based on several requests, I made the pockets nut-free by using flax meal instead of almond flour. Because flax meal is more absorbent than almond flour, I also added some cream cheese. If you can eat nuts, you can follow the original recipe that is made with almond flour - you will only need 4 ingredients: shredded mozzarella, almond flour, spinach and feta - that's it!
In the next few weeks, I'll share even more variations of this recipe, just like these Ham & Cheese Pockets, stay tuned :-)
