Course: main
Servings: 24 meatballs, 4 servings



  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon buffalo sauce I used Frank's
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup red hot sauce

Ranch Dressing

  • 1 cup homemade mayo
  • 1 14oz can coconut cream (not milk, cream. It needs to be thick)
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375° and line a sheet tray with foil. Rub the foil with coconut oil to make it non-stick.
  • In a large bowl, mix the turkey, almond flour, egg, red hot sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt together. Do not overmix.
  • Roll into 1 inch balls and place on the sheet tray. You should get 20 out of the mix.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • While they are baking, combine ghee and buffalo sauce in a frying pan. Warm over medium heat.
  • After 10 minutes, place the meatballs in the sauce and roll around to fully coat. This will have to be done in batches because they won't all fit at once.
  • Place back on sheet tray and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • After those 10 minutes, repeat step 6. Place back in oven for 5-8 more minutes. 
  • Make ranch while they finish baking. Serve warm with ranch.
