How to Make Paleo Meatballs from Scratch Step-by-Step Directions
First, preheat your oven to 350º. In your mixing bowl, place 16oz ground turkey or grass-fed beef, ½C almond flour, and 2tsp of salt, black pepper, parsley, and oregano. Next, mix the paleo ingredients together in a mixing bowl. You can use a spoon, a mixer, or simply a gloved hand to incorporate these ingredient by kneading the mixture for 1-2 minutes. Once the paleo ingredients are adequately mixed, segment the meatball mixture into 8 equal-sized portions.
Roll and shape each portion between the palms of your gloved hands to create 8 spherical, uniform meatballs. Then, place each paleo meatball on your baking sheet with at least 1″ of space between each meatball. You can also lay a sheet of parchment paper onto the baking sheet first to reduce cleanup. Set your kitchen timer to 20 minutes.
Clean any surfaces that came in contact with the raw meatball mixture, and wash your hands. After 20 minutes, check the paleo meatballs by pulling the oven rack out with an oven mitt. With tongs flip each meatball onto its other side, then set them back in the oven for another 20 minutes. The meatballs are ready when their interior temperature reaches 165º.
You can enjoy these paleo meatballs hot and fresh, or you can freeze them and enjoy them later as an easy paleo meal prep recipe for later use. For storage, allow the meatballs to cool completely before refrigerating or freezing. These paleo meatballs will last 2-3 days in a refrigerator, and 6-8 weeks in a freezer.
