Do you struggle to eat enough protein each day? If so, this recipe is for you. Each meatball is packed with over 20 grams of protein! Can you believe that!? It’s the truth. Plan 2-3 meatballs in for lunch or dinner and that daily protein goal just got a whole lot easier to hit.

These are super fun to make, don’t require a ton of ingredients, and very simple! Promise. Did I even mention yet that they taste amazing? Pair these will a bit of pasta, veggies, or even some rice. Heck, let them be the meal themselves, they don’t even need a side kick!

These muffins are large, but feel free to make them half the size and do 24. Simply just log half a muffin in Myfitnesspal if you want to make them smaller. Enjoy!

    This is hands down my favorite recipe of yours that I’ve tried so far. I’ve made it 4 times because I love having them around and they always taste so fresh. I use 2 lbs of ground chicken and they come out sooo tasty!
