Paleo Sausage Balls

Paleo Sausage Balls | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

Since I eliminated grains from my diet, I try to find ways to adapt recipes that aren’t primarily grain based. These paleo sausage balls are an example. While they use a fair amount of flour, sausage is the main ingredient.

Sausage balls are great for breakfast, snacking, appetizers, or served as part of dinner, and I like having a variety of ways to serve protein. (Sausage balls are more fun than sausage patties!)

I chose to use coconut flour in these because I thought I would like the texture better than using almond flour. They turned out good, and we really enjoyed them, but the coconut flavor does come through a little.

I think it would work to substitute almond flour, but  I’m new to grain-free baking and haven’t tried the recipe that way, so you’re on your own if you try that.

    I LIKE TO USE ROBINHOOD GLUTEN FREE FLOUR BLEND, WHICH WILL LIKELY WORK WELL IN THIS RECIPE.

      I did, and I’m not sure why it’s not working. I’ll have to look into it. Meanwhile, on the left of the screen there are social share buttons including Pinterest that lets you pin that way. Thanks for letting me know.
