  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 6 cups Spaghetti Sauce


  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground meat, eggs, seasonings and coconut flour until well combined.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Form meatballs about 1 1/2"- 2" in diameter. There will be about 40 meatballs.
  • Bake on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Pour the spaghetti sauce in a large saucepan and set it to medium heat. Add the meatballs. Heat the sauce through and allow the meatballs to simmer in the sauce for 20 minutes.
  • You can also place the sauce and meatballs in a slow cooker set to low and allow them to simmer for 6-8 hours. This is our favorite way to prepare the meatballs.
  • Serve the meatballs over spaghetti squash.
  • If you don't need all the meatballs at once, you can allow the meatballs to cool and freeze them in ziploc bags.


If you'd like, you can cook these meatballs in a large frying pan on the stovetop over medium heat. Turn the meatballs and brown them on all sides. Cook for 15-20 minutes until they are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink inside. Add the spaghetti sauce directly to the saucepan and allow them to simmer for 20 minutes.
