These simple meatballs are a staple! Instead of breadcrumbs, these meatballs used ground flaxseed. The simple addition of ground flax boosts the fiber and omega-3 fatty acid content of the meatballs!


  • 1 lb ground meat of choice
  • 1 egg
  • 2-4 tbs ground flax (just enough to help the meat stick together when you scoop it!)
  • 1-2 tbs your favorite seasoning (we love using a salt-free garlic and herb blend!)
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.
  3. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to form the mixture into balls (this recipe will yield about 12 meatballs, depending on the size) and place onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy with pasta, in soup, on a salad, with roasted vegetables, or as a quick protein-filled snack!
