This copycat Starbucks Spinach and Feta Breakfast wrap is even more delicious than it’s inspiration- High in protein and packed full of nutrients, it’s a much healthier twist on the original- Naturally gluten free!
When I first started blogging and partaking in What I ate Wednesday posts, I noticed some similarities amongst those who joined the party.
Oatmeal with peanut butter- Common.
Snacking on a protein or fruit and nut bar- Always.
Having a square or two of dark chocolate after dinner– Standard.
Putting something green in a smoothie- Normal.
These foods, however, were mostly eaten at home. When it came to grabbing a breakfast on the go- There was one standout- A Starbucks Spinach and Feta Breakfast Wrap.
I’m not even exaggerating when I say there would be 2-3 blogs I would read mentioning they’d enjoyed one for breakfast. Over time, I started to just expect to see them and lo and behold, they continued to be eaten.
When I travelled to America last year, I had several readers kindly offer advice of places to eat, certain foods to eat and lo and behold something which popped up with a Starbucks Spinach and Feta Breakfast Wrap. Seeing as this was all over the blogs and now I was being recommended to try one- I had to.
The perfect opportunity arose when I was planning to fly out from New York to Los Angeles and there was a Starbucks conveniently located at the airport and I had 3 hours before my flight. Being the goose I am, I somehow thought airport policies were like Australia’s international ones which recommend you being at the airport up to 3 hours prior to your flight….
Anyway, I settled myself in Starbucks, ordered a blonde roast and the elusive Spinach and Feta Breakfast Wrap. I took one bite and was transported to heaven. It was like eating a truffle from France or a single caviar from the Caspian Sea.
No offence to fans of this wrap but you guys….It was tiny, lacked salt and the I could barely taste the feta cheese. In fact, I thought they had forgotten it! The worst part? It was so unsatisfying, I had to order another one. I was hoping the first one was merely a mistake but no. It was the same. Small, lacking feta and salt and unsatisfying. I was disappointed. This wrap which was the (Healthy) Living Food blogger’s shining glory and failed me. How to remedy it? Recreate. With my terms.
When the team at Nikos Feta reached out to create a recipe using one of their delicious feta options, it was like a sign- MAKE THE INFAMOUS WRAP BETTER.
Okay not really. It was more like MAKE THE WRAP AND ADD YOUR DESIRED AMOUNT OF FETA.
Okay fine, I was making the damn wrap regardless….with this.
This copycat Starbucks Spinach and Feta Breakfast Wrap is a better version of the Starbucks staple. Do me a favour and google the ingredient list for the Starbucks offering- It’s like the reference page of an English textbook. My version? Just a few simple ingredients and a delicious, hearty lavash wrap perfect for a quick weekday breakfast or healthy weekend brunch served with some coffee- Starbucks or home brewed. A Starbucks wrap uses the whites of the egg only and this recipe does too, but when I make it for myself, I leave the yolks in- Your choice.
Bonus- These are perfect for those who do meal prep as they freeze REALLY well and can either be toasted or defrosted on the day of consumption!
