Best Low Carb Meatballs

Updated: Feb 2, 2019

These meatballs are my family's favorite. This recipe stems from my mom's meatballs from when I was growing up. I've modified the recipe to be low carb, by replacing regular bread crumbs with almond flour. Nobody has ever questioned the taste or texture so I'm thinking they don't even know they are low carb and keto friendly.

I use this basic recipe to make my homemade red (spaghetti) sauce and meatballs, Hot Buffalo Meatballs, and Simple Swedish Meatballs.

Best Low Carb Meatballs


1 lb Ground beef

1/2 lb Ground Pork

1/2 lb Ground Veal

2 Eggs, large

1/4 cup Almond Flour

1 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

1 1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

1/2 tsp Italian Spice Mix / Italian Seasonings

To Make meatballs:

Mix thoroughly all ingredients be careful to over mix the ingredients. Form mixture into meatballs and brown in skillet or broil on a broiler rack in a 400 degree oven just until brown. Add meatballs to your favorite sauce and simmer, on your stove top or in a crock-pot / slow cooker, until cooked through (approx 1 -2 hours). If you would like to eat the meatballs plain (like me), cook meatballs all the way through (the cooking time depends on the size of the meatballs. Generally it will take 8-10 minutes in the oven)
