Meatballs are traditionally made with breadcrumbs but almond flour is a great low carb alternative! For an even lower carb option, I’ve even used pork grinds and have found that work much better and they have ZERO carbs! Tip: pork grinds can also be used as a topping for casseroles and are also great to serve with your favorite dip!
