Grain-Free Turkey Meatloaf

This grain-free turkey meatloaf is moist, packed with flavor and is lighter than your traditional meatloaf...perfect if you're gluten-free, paleo, doing Whole30 or just want to eat healthy!


  • 1.5 lb lean ground turkey
  • ¼ cup plus 4 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • Fresh parsley, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put onion, carrot, celery and garlic cloves into food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Add olive oil to pan over medium heat and saute your onions, carrots, celery, and garlic until translucent. Then, remove from heat.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix turkey, your sauteed veggies, almond flour, egg, ¼ cup of ketchup, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and chili powder.
  5. Place mixture into a loaf pan and spoon your remaining ketchup onto the top.
  6. Bake uncovered for 55-60 mins.
  7. Remove from oven and let sit 10-15 minutes before slicing (this will allow it to absorb any excess liquid).

  8. Top with fresh parsley before serving.

Recipe Notes

If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to saute veggies, you can skip that step and just add uncooked chopped veggies to the mix. Leave out the olive oil then.
