  • Cooking Method: Slow Cooker
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4-6 hours
  • Cuisine Type: Paleo


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

Cooking Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, almond flour, eggs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until just combined.
  • Form mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs. Get ready to channel your inner sculptor!
  • Place meatballs in a single layer at the bottom of your slow cooker. Please, do not overcrowd – let them breathe.
  • Pour crushed tomatoes over meatballs, adding chopped basil on top. Give them a nice tomato bath.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Your house will smell AH-MAZE-ING. Try not to faint from hunger.
  • Check that meatballs are cooked through – they should reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Safety first!
  • Serve hot from the slow cooker. Nom nom time!


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try ground turkey for a leaner option. Or go full-on lamb for a flavor twist!
  • Garnishing Options: Fresh parsley, more basil, or a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for a cheesy vibe.
  • Cooking Tips: For an extra flavor punch, sear the meatballs in a hot pan before slow cooking. Boom!
