Healthy Buffalo Turkey Meatballs (Paleo, Whole30, GF)

A lighter buffalo meatball recipe that is baked and made with ground turkey, almond flour, spices, and Frank's RedHot Original hot sauce.


  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey, (note: lean turkey results in meatballs that area bit more dry, but with less fat. If you use 94% fat ground turkey, it's more juicy)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3- 1/2 cup hot sauce, (Frank's RedHot Original hot sauce is all natural and Paleo!) ( My original recipe used 1/3 cup, but if you want more hot sauce flavor, use 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet in aluminum paper.
  • Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a fork until everything is completely mixed.
  • Roll the meatballs into tablespoon-golf ball sized balls. Depending on size, you'll end up with 20-24 meatballs.
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes. I like to cook them for 20, then broil them for a few for added crisp.
  • Brush off some of the excess liquid/fat off the bottom of the meatballs with paper towels.
