Makes 1 loaf

Fall weather calls for more hearty dishes, stews and soups. My kids love meatloaf and I have been able to get so much flavor here and texture by using almond flour and very little added ingredients... Give it a try and see for yourself.


  • 2 lbs or ground meat (I used half beef, half veal)
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup of ketchup ( plus another 1/3 cup for top of the loaf)
  • 3 tbsp of almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of mustard
  • 1 tsp of ground fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp of ghee or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven at 375F.

Sauté the shallot and garlic with the ghee for a couple of minutes.

In a large bowl combine the met, the eggs the flour, the cooked shallot, 1/3 cup of ketchup, the mustard, the fennel seeds, some salt and pepper and mix.

Transfer to a loaf pan ad cook fro 20 min.  after 20 minutes, spoon the remain g 1/3 cup of ketchup on top and return to oven fro 402-45 minutes ( or until cooked through - thermometer should say that internal temp is 165F).

All the loaf to rest for a few minutes, slice and serve!
