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.

  2. 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.
