  • 1 pound ground turkey breast - I used 93% lean
  • 1 medium apple, diced (120 grams)
  • 3 cups packed kale, chopped (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon avocado oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat a medium-large sauté pan over medium heat. Add avocado oil and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Add kale sauté for 2 minutes. Add apples and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Add to a medium sized bowl and let cool for a minute.
  • Add ground turkey, coconut flour, and seasonings to the same bowl. Mix to combine. Using a tablespoon as a scoop, form into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • While the meatballs bake, make the sauce. Add all ingredients into a small jar or cup and blend with an immersion blender for 1 minute until combined. You can also add it to a blender.
  • Place meatballs over noddles of choice and top with sauce. Enjoy!
