These basic but super tasty meatballs are great with so many different sauces, or dipped into ranch/ketchup like a chicken nugget!



2 pounds ground turkey

2 egg yolks

2/3 cup almond flour

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 Teaspoon granulated garlic, or 2 cloves minced

1 Teaspoon granulated onion 

1 Teaspoon sea salt

1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 450ºF and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the ground turkey, egg yolks, and olive oil. In a small bowl, whisk together the almond flour, granulated garlic and onion, sea salt, and pepper. Add the almond mixture to the ground turkey, and mix just to combine.

Using a spoon or a small cookie scoop, (I use a #40 scoop) portion out half the meat mixture or 18 meatballs onto the prepared cookie sheet. Lightly oil your hands and roll the meatballs into a rounder shape. 

Then bake until just done in the centers, 10-12 minutes. Repeat with the remaining half of the meat mixture and bake again until done.

Let the meatballs cool to room temperature before freezing in an airtight container for 1 month.

You can also use half of this batch of meatballs right away in any recipe/sauce to serve 4.
