Feta Turkey Meatballs

Serves: 2

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have all  been having a fun, healthy weekend! I am excited this morning to  be sharing with you my first recipe for the Powercakes Sunday Power Meal Challenge! The challenge began last week, but since I was away on vacation I was unable to participate! 🙁 If you aren’t familiar with the challenge click on the link above or go to www.powercakes.net to check it out! It’s a place where every Sunday bloggers will share a healthy recipe that will help keep them fueled or ‘powered’ through the day! Even if you don’t want to submit a recipe, stop by anyway to grab ideas on some healthy meals that you can start working into your ‘fit’ lifestyle!

Have a great rest of the day and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for another fresh, healthy FIT recipe! 🙂

Fit Ingredients

  • 8oz (224g) ground turkey breast (can sub with whatever protein you’d like)
  • 1oz (34g) reduced fat feta cheese
  • 1tsp (6g) ground flax seed
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix all the above ingredients. It will take you a minute or two to get it mixed really well. Make sure everything is evenly distributed! Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray it with non stick spray. Form your turkey mixture into 6 evenly sized meatballs. Place meatballs on the foil and spray tops with non stick spray. Bake for 20 minutes!

That’s it! These meatballs are super simple, moist and taste delicious!! You can easily increase the recipe to make more to keep in your freezer or serve a bigger crowd! Also, feel free to make them smaller in size to serve as an appetizer!

I ate mine with some steamed cauliflower, avocado and Steel’s ketchup (best ketchup ever by the way!)

  • These look great!!! I love turkey meatballs and feta so a fabulous combination! I would never think to put flax in my meatballs but that is a great idea and swap instead of breadcrumbs!
