Meatballs

Ingredients
Instructions

Line the bottom of a broiler pan with foil for quick clean up. Mix all ingredients together, form 1 inch balls, place on broiler pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
*Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil Refined for Medium High Heat (Albertsons and Sprouts) is flavorless. Coconut oil is not carcinogenic like other oils when sauteing. **Start with 2/3 cup oats and pulse process about 10 times for a 3-5 seconds, occasionally removing the top and stirring with a rubber spatula so the pieces are evenly cut, until there are no more whole pieces. Lite variation: In place of potatoes and peas, try cauliflower and broccoli florets.
