  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 2 and 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 lb. ground beef


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil and allow it to heat. Add the onion to the skillet and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the skillet.
  2. In a bowl, add the onion and garlic, almond meal, eggs, milk, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Whisk everything together. Add the beef and mix well with a fork or your hands, incorporating everything evenly but don’t overmix or it will make the meat tough. When everything is mixed together, take about 2 tablespoons of the meat and roll into meatballs.
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and turn the heat to medium low. Sauté the meatballs for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping them over occasionally. When they’re cooked through, remove from the heat and serve with desired sauce and gluten-free noodles.
