Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until nuts are slightly ground. If too much for food processor, process ingredients in batches. and mix together in a bowl.

Scoop tablespoon sized balls of the spinach mixture out of the food processor or bowl and place on cookie sheet.

Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes until bottoms of the spinach balls have browned.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute on a cookie rack. Serve warm.
