Egg Foo Young Fingers

With Garlic Chilli Sauce

These tasty morsels will become a favourite go-to. They are really easy to make, taste awesome work perfectly for breakfast, lunch on the go or dinner and are a great source of protein - keeping you feeling satisfied for longer!

Particularly during the cooler months, these fingers will fill you up and heat you up with warming flavours and nutrients that are especially supportive during winter.

Eggs are a great food source of Vitamin D (just in case you aren’t seeing enough sun!), and Vitamin B12 (which is essential for all metabolism in every cell in your body!). Spinach is a great source of Calcium, Iron, Folate, and Vitamin C, so it’s always a favourite and is great for boosting energy and immunity.  We have used coconut flour in this recipe, as its lower in carbohydrate compared to normal flour and releases energy more slowly

1 tsp snipped chives

½ tsp baking soda

100g frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (you should end up with about 50g)
