These all purpose turkey meatballs are perfect for a light weeknight dinner, an amazing snack, or even us for your weekly meal prep recipe. These are Paleo, Keto, Whole30, and Gluten Free.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (or more to taste)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 12 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground turkey, almond flour, salt, garlic, onion powder, oregano, pepper, and parsley. Stir well to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg, then add it along with the coconut aminos, onions and tomato sauce to the meat mixture. Mix together with hands until evenly combined.
  4. Using a spoon, scoop the meat and shape into 1 1/2-inch meatballs (size of a golf balls).
  5. Transfer and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. You should have about 18-20 meatballs total.
  6. Brush the tops of the meatballs with the olive oil.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatballs read 165 F on a meat thermometer.
  8. Serve as an appetizer or add a veggie and turn this into a complete meal. I love adding this on top of salads for a great meal-prep lunch option.

Notes

  • Store in a glass container in the fridge for up to one week.
