Moist and tender Low Carb Meatballs simmered in a delicious marinara. Serve over pasta or enjoy topped with melted mozzarella and freshly chopped basil.
I have a little secret to tell you.
I have been on a low carb, low sugar diet for over a month.
I absolutely love it. I feel great and I have enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It has been easy to manage, eating a lot of protein, cutting out sugars and carbs. While this post is not about my diet, I do want to share with you some of the recipes I have been creating, including these delicious Low Carb Meatballs with Marinara. These have become a favorite. You would never know they are low carb.
When making meatballs, sure you could just eliminate the bread crumbs from the recipe to make them low carb, but what you are going to end up with is a ball of seasoned cooked beef. The addition of bread crumbs in meatballs keep the meatballs moist and tender. I did a little research of what I could use in place of bread crumbs and found that almond flour works best. It is much lower in carbs and sugar then using bread crumbs.
The result are tender meatballs that almost melt in your mouth. I honestly prefer these over other meatballs made with bread crumbs. I make these once a week along with this Low Carb Marinara. I love to top it with lots of mozzarella and place it under the broiler. Sprinkled with some freshly chopped basil this is a complete meal. You can serve this over pasta if you prefer, but I have enjoyed this with just a side salad or some veggies.Print
