Meatballs:
    • 1 pound ground turkey
    • 1 egg
    • ¼ cup coconut flour
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • Few cracks of pepper
Sauce:
  • ½ cup coconut aminos (or tamari)
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 heaping teaspoon arrowroot powder + 1 teaspoon cold water (mixed together)

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl add turkey, egg, coconut flour, garlic powder, ground ginger, salt and pepper and mix to combine completely. Divide into 16 meatballs and place them in an 8×8 inch pyrex. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan combine coconut aminos, water, orange juice, garlic powder & ground ginger. Bring to a boil and add the arrowroot and water mixture. Whisk vigorously to keep from clumping! Pour sauce over the meatballs evenly and bake for 18-20 minutes.

Toss cooked meatballs in the sauce and garnish with sesame seeds!
