Transforming Strength Healthy Meatballs Recipe

This Healthy Meatballs recipe is just that, healthy! It’s also a tasty food for eating on purpose and highly recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.

  • 1 Pound ground beef, turkey, chicken etc. Your choice.
  • 1/2 Cup riced vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, etc)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Large garlic cloves – grated
  • 2 Tsp onion flakes
  • 1 Tsp oregano 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Using small ice cream scoop ( I use my medium size Pampered Chef scoop) form meatballs. Place them single layer on cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Turn and toss with spatula. Bake for 5 more minutes.
  5. Serve hot. 

Serving size: 3ounces or roughly 4 medium size meatballs 

This is a great recipe to experiment with seasoning. Italian one time, use some ginger and soy sauce for a Oriental twist, or how about taco seasoning for a Mexican flavor? These meatballs are a great twist for meat in stir fry or with marinara sauce and zucchini noodles. 

Tip: Make a double batch. Freeze some or use them in meal prep. 

To freeze: Lay rolled raw meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze completely then transfer to a ziplock bag. Thaw, then bake following above directions.
