Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup grated parmesan Cheese
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 ½ teaspoons plain grass-fed beef gelatin optional
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place an oven-safe rack on the baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, parmesan, almond flour, onion, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper.

  • Pour the gelatin mixture over the meat mixture and mix gently with your hands.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to form into meatballs.

  • Stir the meatballs into warm marinara and serve over cabbage noodles, zucchini noodles, or palimi noodles.
