A Healthier Meatball

If you are like me, you don’t always get all those good for you veggies in everyday. And there is the having toddlers thing… I am very lucky because my boys never give me a hard time when it comes to fruits and veggies but the way I figure the more the better right!?! I had some lean ground turkey that I needed to use, so what to make…

So you have a package of ground turkey… what do you go for? I figured this is an easy way to work some extra healthy stuff into the boys, myself and the hubs! I came up with a simple meatball recipe that is far from the traditional version and it is super tasty! And its been toddler approved 😉


1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey
1 cup shredded carrots
1 apple, peeled and cut away from the core
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 Tbsp garlic powder
salt & pepper


1. Oven at 375 degrees
2. In a food processor add the shredded carrots and apple. Pulse until very finely chopped.
3. Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined. Form meatballs into a golf ball size. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden.
4. You can certainly throw these into some sauce and serve with pasta. I gave them to my boys with a little sauce and melted mozzarella. For myself I thew them over some brown rice mixed with sautéed onions and peas. You can throw them over a salad as an alternative to chicken… so many options for these little bites of yumminess!
5. Hope you give these slightly sweet, healthy meatballs… they are delish!
