  • 1/4 cup gluten free panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 oz baby carrots
  • 3 oz zucchini squash
  • 1 ounce shallots
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon all purpose seasoning
  • avocado oil spray


  • Mix breadcrumbs and almond milk and let soak for 5 minutes
  • Grate or very finely dice veggies (I used my mini chopper)
  • Add breadcrumb mixture and veggies to bowl along with meat, seasoning and egg
  • Mix well by hand until fully combined
  • Use an ice cream scoop to form into equal sized meatballs and place in single layer in air fryer basket
  • Spray lightly with avocado oil
  • Cook in air fryer at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until cooked through


If using regular panko breadcrumbs instead of gluten free adjust to 1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup milk or non-dairy milk
If your seasoning blend doesn’t list salt, then add 1/2 teaspoon salt
Can prep meatballs ahead by rolling into balls and laying on single layer of parchment on cookie sheet and freezing. Thaw before cooking
You can freeze leftover cooked meatballs in an airtight container up to 3 months
