You guys, I LOVE a good meatball. They are packed with protein, the perfect 2-bite appetizer and they are just so darn yummy! So, as a part of my most recent KTVU segment on Healthy Holiday Appetizers, I knew I had to include a meatball recipe. So, here I bring you some fantastic organic turkey apple meatballs. I'm really excited that I've partnered with Foster Farms on this post because it's been really hard for me to find fresh, organic turkey at the grocery store, which is why I've never made turkey meatballs before! So, now that I've found a fresh turkey to work with, I bring you my holiday apple meatballs. Enjoy! 

Ingredients

2 lbs fresh, organic ground turkey. For this recipe I used Foster Farms new organic ground turkey. So yummy!

1/4 cup almond flour

1 egg

1 heaping tsp ground cinnamon

4 chopped garlic cloves

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp champagne vinegar

2 tbsp dijon mustard

1 cup unsweetened apple sauce

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350

Add organic, ground turkey, almond flour, egg, cinnamon and garlic cloves to a large bowl. 

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. 

Form bite sized meatballs and place them on a well greased baking sheet. You can use coconut oil or butter for that. 

Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. 

While the meatballs are cooking in the oven, add the honey, champagne vinegar, dijon mustard and applesauce to a large saucepan. 

Heat on medium for about 5-7 minutes. 

Once the meatballs are done in the oven, add them one by one to the saucepan and be sure that they are covered nicely by the sauce. 

Cover and cook for another 7 minutes or so. 

Place the meatballs on a serving platter and add a dollop of leftover sauce to the top of each. Enjoy! 

 

This is a fabulous recipe that I changed and adapted from Paleo Leap!
