BBQ Meatballs



Here's a wonderful protein-packed snack recipe. The addition of homemade BBQ sauce takes these meatballs from regular to extraordinary. Enjoy as a power snack or throw a couple on a pile of greens for a light meal.


Makes: 18

Here's what you need...


  • 2 beaten eggs

  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour

  • 1/4 cup flax meal

  • 1/2 cup onion, finely minced

  • 2 Tablespoons coconut milk, canned, full fat

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 12 oz ground cooked ham

  • 12 oz ground raw pork

  • 1/3 cup coconut crystals

  • 2/3 cup organic, no-sugar-added ketchup

  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  1. In a large bowl combine eggs, almond flour, flax meal, onion, coconut milk, Dijon, and pepper. Add ground ham and ground pork; mix well. Shape into 18 balls, using about 1/4 cup mixture for each ball. Place ham balls in a lightly greased 2-quart rectangular baking dish.

  2. In a bowl combine coconut crystals, ketchup, vinegar, and Dijon. Stir until the coconut crystals dissolve. Pour a spoonful over each ham ball.

  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven about 35 minutes or until done. Transfer ham balls to a serving platter and enjoy!

Wanted to try the BBQ meatballs but can't afford the flax meal and almond flour; BUMMER. I guess I'll stick to the meals I plan on my MEAGER SS check. Maybe some day....

Try Walmart - they seem to carry the healthy flours and such at a reasonable price!
