Ingredients

  • 500 grams ground beef (1.1 lb)
  • 1 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic (1.1 lb)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (1.1 lb)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (1.1 lb)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce (1.1 lb)
  • 25 pitted olives (1.1 lb)
  • fresh basil (1.1 lb)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 230 °C/ 450 °F.
  • Dice the mozzarella in 20-25 equal sized pieces.
  • Place it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes.
  • Freezing the cheese will prevent it from leaking out while baking.
  • Place the meat, egg, minced garlic, thyme, oregano, ...
  • ...
  • almond flour, salt and pepper into a bowl.
  • Mix until well combined using your hands or a mixer.
  • Divide the meat into 20-25 pieces (I made 20).
  • Remove the cheese from the freezer.
  • Take each piece and flatten using your hands.
  • Place a piece of the mozzarella cheese in the middle and fold the meat over it.
  • Briefly roll between hands and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the Marinara Sauce.
  • Place the marinara sauce in a large pan and heat up over a medium heat.
  • The first time I made this recipe, I used too much marinara sauce (photo below) which I then used to make another batch of meatballs.
  • Take the meatballs from the oven and place in the pan with marinara sauce.
  • Using a spoon or a spatula, cover with the sauce from all sides.
  • Drain the olives (I used both green and black Kalamata olives).
  • Insert a toothpick into each olive and then into each meatball.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped basil and enjoy! Tip: You can serve the marinara sauce separately from the meatballs by dipping into it.
