These Italian-Style Paleo Mini Meatloaves are meal prep perfection! The meatloaf muffins are loaded with veggies, spices, and delicious sauce… A great variation on a meat dish, right? I love that these are made in a muffin tin because it makes for the perfect serving of protein. Pair them with a quick side salad, zoodles, spaghetti squash or pasta and you’ve got a complete meal.

Traditional meatloaf uses breadcrumbs to help tenderize the meat. In our gluten free and paleo meatloaf recipe, we’re using almond flour to do this instead. Almond flour will not only help hold the meatloaf together, when mixed with eggs, but it also adds some extra fat to the meatloaf which helps keep it tender.

    This recipe looks delicious., but I have one question. How much tomato sauce is used in this recipe. The ingredients say 2 Tablespoons, but in the instructions it says to add 1/4 cup to the mixture and to serve the remaining tomato sauce.

  5. Ruth Ann Mackson says:
