  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Sheet Pan
  • Oven


  • 1 lb Ground Chicken
  • 1 cup Almond Flour divided
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 Cup BBQ Sauce (whole 30 approved if whole 30)

Extra Toppings:

  • Ranch
  • Avocado Ranch
  • Blue Cheese
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles


  • First, mix the ground chicken, 3/4 cup of almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, egg, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Incorporate the ingredients together with a fork until it is mixed very well.
  • Roll the mixture into meatballs. Dust each meatball with almond flour to make the outside more firm.
  • Spray or rub the sheet pan with avocado oil. Place the meatballs on the sheet pan. Bake at 400º for 15 minutes. Turn the meatballs over and continue baking for 15 more minutes.
  • Take the meatballs out of the over and roll them in your chosen BBQ or Buffalo Sauce. Top them with desired toppings and serve!


If the meatball mixture seems too sticky, add a tablespoon more of almond flour before rolling the mixture into balls. Don't add too much almond flour or it will cause the meatballs to be crumbly. Also, make sure to roll each meatball in more almond flour to dust. This helps them to not stick to the pan during baking.
