I’ve updated our favorite turkey barbecue meatball recipe to be grain free, dairy free, and sugar free. These meatballs are perfect for dinner or for appetizers.

Tips:

  • I use a small cookie scoop to make my meatballs. I just scoop and drop them on the baking pan. So they aren’t perfectly round and that’s okay with me, but if you want them a little more roundish, just pick up each meatball and roll it in your hands to shape.
  • These are easy to make ahead and freeze. I like having meatballs already to go for quick prep on a weeknight. Pull out how many meatballs you want to serve and adjust the sauce ingredients or leave as is to have extra sauce and then bake.

  • 1 1/2 cups golden flax meal
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. In a medium bowl mix all the sauce ingredients together. Spoon sauce over meatballs. Bake for 1 hour.

Notes

*homemade sweetener – 1 cup erythritol+ 1 teaspoon stevia mixed together.

*Note for freezing. If ground turkey has not been previously frozen, the meatballs can be frozen before baking. Freeze on a large parchment lined baking sheet. Store frozen meatballs in freezer bags. When ready to bake, place frozen meatballs on baking sheet and spoon sauce over meatballs. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.

If ground turkey has previously been frozen, bake the meatballs without sauce and then freeze. When ready to bake place frozen meatballs on baking sheet and spoon sauce over meatballs. Bake at 350° for around 30 minutes or until heated through.
