Clean Eating Meatballs

  • 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 c. oat bran (most sources agree that as long as there is no cross-contamination oat bran is gluten free)
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix egg and oat bran in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Use an ice cream scoop to place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Place in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until golden. Makes 12-16 meatballs. 6 servings.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
