Tips to always make the best paleo meatloaf

tips for the best keto meatloaf recipe

  • It’s important to let the meatloaf rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Make sure to use a sharp knife or a bread knife.
  • My mom used to tell me to be gentle when combining the ingredients and always use my hands. If you want moist and tender meatloaf that doesn’t fall apart don’t overwork the mixture of meat.
  • You can always add more vegetables to the meat such as shredded zucchini, mushrooms, spinach or more onions. It’s a great way to include more veggies in your daily meal plan and keep the meatloaf moist.
  • Don’t skip the baking sauce. If you don’t have enough time to make, the baking sauce just top the meatloaf with some sugar-free ketchup or with a barbecue sauce. The acidity from the sauce will cut down the fatty taste.
  • Don’t worry if there’s liquid excess after baking because that’s normal if you used high-fat ground beef. Just drain the liquid and enjoy a delicious keto meatloaf.

What low carb binder to use? Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Crushed Pork Rinds

keto meatloaf paleo meat loaf recipe

Most meatloaf recipes use breadcrumbs as a binder, but as you know that’s not low in carbs, and wheat flour is not keto approved.

For this version, I substituted the breadcrumbs with almond flour because to me it delivers a perfect texture. I prefer using almond flour over any other low carb even if it’s slightly expensive.

Some recipes call for coconut flour but I feel that coconut flour gives a slightly sweet taste and I am not a huge fan. Also using coconut flour can make the meatloaf dry if there isn’t enough liquid for it to absorb.

If you have a nut allergy and can’t use almond flour, you’ll get amazing results by using pork rinds or golden flax meal. The golden flaxseeds have a lighter taste and color than regular dark flaxseeds and are the lowest in carbs compared to other seeds. To make the flaxseed meal you use a coffee grinder or a food processor.

This recipe yields 12-14 servings. A serving is a generous slice that has 2g net carbs and 245 calories. All the macros detailed under the recipe card.
