Ingredients
1 Egg, beaten
2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste*
1 Small/Medium Onion, peeled and grated
3 Cloves Garlic, finely minced
¼ Cup Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
Salt & Pepper
¼ Cup Almond Flour
1 Tablespoon Coconut Flour
1 Pound Ground Turkey*, a mixture of white and dark meat (I use ground pork sometimes instead of turkey)
Marinara Saucefor serving (for the recipe link I attached, simply leave out the meat in the recipe)
 
Instructions
  1. Combine the beaten egg, tomato paste, grated onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, almond flour, and coconut flour. Mix well and then mix in the meat. (These meatballs are much stickier than traditional)
  2. Preheat the oven to 400º.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over high heat and enough of the olive oil to coat the skillet. Using a medium or large ice cream/cookie scoop*, scoop out the meatballs and drop them directly into the pan. Let them cook for about 30 seconds or until brown, then flip them over using a spoon (I found this was the easiest in order to keep them intact). Cook them until brown on the other side, about 30 seconds, and then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Repeat with remaining meat – you’ll end up with about 15 meatballs using a large scoop, and about 24 using a medium.
  4. Transfer the meatballs to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes for the large size, or 15 minutes if you used a medium-sized scoop. The meatballs will be firm to the touch when finished.
  5. Serve with Marinara Sauce.
Notes
  1. *Make sure the tomato paste doesn’t have any additives or sugar!
  2. *Ground chicken, beef, or pork will work well too!
  3. *A cookie scoop is a must for this recipe as the meatballs are too sticky to roll by hand. The cookie scoop makes it super easy to just scoop them right into the pan. Once they meatballs cook, they firm up just like traditional meatballs! They will stand up to hearty tomato sauces when cooked.
