Versatile Whole30 Garlic Meatballs


Note: This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, and Keto friendly!

One of my favorite meal prep items is turkey meatballs. I can easily make a few dozen in less than an hour and keep them on hand in the freezer (which is a life saver during Whole30)! By using a simple recipe, you can easily switch up the sauce so you don’t get bored 👏🏻

The best part about this recipe is how well it works with different types of sauces. When I make my Whole30 Italian meatballs, I usually only serve them up with marinara, pesto, or alfredo sauce, but these garlic meatballs lend themselves well to curry, buffalo, and BBQ as well! Whip up a batch of these, freeze them, and then customize to your heart’s desire!

  • 2.5 pounds ground turkey

  • 1/4 cup almond or coconut flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

  • 2 Tsp onion powder

  • 2 Tsp garlic powder

  • 1 Tsp kosher or sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

  • Generous shake of freshly ground black pepper

  • Your choice of sauce: marinara, pesto, alfredo, curry, and buffalo all work well!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 roasting pans with foil.

  2. Combine all ingredients (except sauce) in a large mixing bowl by hand. I find this gets the greatest incorporation of the flour and eggs into the meat.

  3. Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, portion meat into your hand and gently roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet and repeat until all meatballs are made.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.

  5. Once meatballs are done, allow to cool completely before transferring to a freezer safe bag or container.

  6. When you’re ready to eat, portion meatballs into a microwave safe bowl and defrost/reheat.

  7. Top with your sauce of choice and warm through. Enjoy!
