  • 2 Tablespoons rice flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375º Fahrenheit. 
  2. Mix all ingredients together and form into one-inch balls. 
  3. Tablespoon-sized cookie scoop to make your meatballs
  4. Arrange on a cookie sheet so that meatballs do not touch each other
  5. Bake for 30 minutes until cooked through. 
  6. Remove from the cookie sheet using a spatula while meatballs are still hot. (You don’t actually have to remove them so much as unstick them from the pan.)
