Who knew meatballs could be cute?

So I’m not sure who or what my little friend is here, but if it makes my kids smile, that’s all that matters, right? These little meatballs are great for dinner, lunch or snacks. One person had the suggestion of freezing them so they you could take them on the go and by noon, they’d be ready. I love it! Anyway, here is the recipe:

  • 2 lbs grassfed beef
  • 1 carrot- chopped small or grated
  • 1 small onion- chopped small or grated
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (Trader Joe’s)
  • 2 eggs
  • celtic sea salt
  • pepper


  • 1-2 15 oz. can(s) organic tomato sauce
  • 1 whole shredded zuchinni (if you peel it, you can tell your kids they are little noodles)
  • salt, pepper, oregano, garlic

Form mixture into meatballs (about 1 1/2 inch in diameter) and squish into a 9×13 baking dish. Then cover with sauce and bake at 375 for approximately 50-60 minutes. Thanks for another great recipe Marla!
