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