How to make Keto Swedish Meatballs
  1. Place all the meatballs ingredients, except the oil, into a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  2. Roll into balls that are about 2 tablespoons worth of mixture (you can use a cookie scoop to make this step easier). We got 24 meatballs.
  3. Place a cast-iron skillet over high heat and add the oil.
  4. Saute the meatballs, adding a few at a time to the skillet, to avoid overcrowding. Turn the meatballs until browned on all sides and cooked through. Spoon onto a plate.
  5. Keep the skillet on the heat, including all the little bits left by the meatballs in the pan.
  6. Add the butter, then once melted add the beef stock, cream, mustard powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk together.
  7. Bring to a simmer then whisk in the xanthan gum. Continue to simmer until thick, about 8-12 minutes.
  8. Add the meatballs back in and simmer for about 3 minutes, until the meatballs are hot.
  9. Sprinkle with parsley.
  10. Serve with Buttery Cauliflower Mash and enjoy!

  1. Is it possible to replace the almond flour with coconut flour? And how much coconut flour would I use in place of it?

    • Hi Tegan,

      I haven’t made the recipe with coconut flour but I think 1 tablespoon would be a good place to start. Let me know how they go!
