Grain Free Turkey Meatballs
Hello friends! I have gotten a lot of requests to make a grain free turkey meatball recipe. My original post on turkey meatballs had oats which are a quality carbohydrates but those who are off grains or may be on a keto or low carb diet may be looking for a grain free alternative. So here they are….
Grain Free Turkey Meatballs!
These are made with almond flour but just a bit so that they are still low in carbs and don’t go overboard on our omega 6s.
- 2 lbs ground turkey (if you are doing keto go for the higher fat turkey)
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 2 celery stocks chopped
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 2 tsp garlic
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 TBS anise seed OR fennel
- 1 farm fresh egg
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl mix your almond flour, sea salt, pepper, garlic, basil, oregano.
- Chop your celery into tiny pieces and add it to your bowl.
- Add an egg to the mix and mix it all up.
- Then add your 2 lbs of ground turkey.
- Use your hands to mix everything thoroughly.
- Shape and place 12 turkey meatballs onto your lined cookie sheet.
- Cook for 40 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees.
- Store them in a glass container. They will keep about 3 days so be sure to freeze what you wont eat in the next three days.
I like to make a double batch and freeze what I wont eat in baggies in the fridge. I put 2 meatballs in each baggie then put all the individual baggies in a ziplock freezer bag.
There you have it. This meal is perfect for food prep which is a great way to be prepared to eat healthy throughout the week. If you have east healthy options available, you are less likely to make unhealthy options.
I eat these with “zoodles”, on top of a huge salad, or by themselves. My husband eats turkey meatballs every day for lunch with hot sauce. They are super yummy.
