Do you wanna, wanna meatloaf?

I dunno about you, but I pretty much always wanna meatloaf.

Side note: not super sure when “meatloaf” became a verb but, for the purposes of this post, we’re GOING WITH IT.

Side note, the sequel: if you would have asked me to do aforementioned meatloaf-ing about a year ago I would have told you NO WAY NOPE NOT EVER.

For some reason, I had decided that I did not like meatloaf. Although it is basically just like paleo meatballs in a BIG form and I LOVE those….I just told myself I didn’t like it.

And, I was on a quest to find out way.

It also may have had something to do with the fact that Mr. FFF has begged me to make him meatloaf every single day of our marriage. <–  Definitely an exaggeration. Sometimes he asks me for homemade healthy hamburger helper instead.

But, liiiike, he DOES ask A LOT.

How to make Paleo Meatloaf

Boil

Preheat the oven while you cook up the sauce. Add all the sauce ingredients into a small pot and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil.

Reduce

Let the mixture boil for a minute, then reduce the temperature and cook until the sauce thickens.

Process

Transfer the sauce to a small food processor and blend until everything is well combined and smooth. Be sure to stop often to scrape down the sides and to make sure everything mixes together well.

Make the Meatloaf

In a large bowl, mix together all the meatloaf ingredients other than the coconut flour. Use your hands for the best results! After it’s well mixed, add in the flour and mix until combined. 

Press

Press the meatloaf into a loaf pan, but make sure you don’t pack it down hard as that will result in a dry meatloaf. Pour the sauce over top!

Bake

Bake the meatloaf in the preheated oven until it’s done!

Enjoy

Serve it up and DEVOUR!

How to freeze Keto Paleo Meatloaf

To freeze this meatloaf no breadcrumbs, I recommend slicing it into individual portions, then freezing them in individual containers or zip lock style freezer bags. This will make thawing and reheating much easier!

What to Serve with Low Carb Meatloaf

This low carb meatloaf recipe would be perfect with so many sides! But here are a few options that I think would be so GOOD:

Meatloaf FAQ
How long does meatloaf last in the fridge?

This meatloaf will last for about 3-4 days in the fridge safely when stored in an airtight container. 

Can you make meatloaf without breadcrumbs?

Although many meatloaf recipes call for breadcrumbs, you can definitely make it without them and this recipe does that!

How do you know when the Meatloaf is done?

The meatloaf is done when it’s not pink inside and the internal temperature reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can I make this with Ground Chicken?

You could give it a try with ground chicken, as long as you make sure the meat has some fat to it or else it will turn out very dry!

Ingredients

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 Cup Canned tomato sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 2 Tbsp Deglet Noor dates, halved (about 3 dates or 23g)
  • 1 Tbsp White vinegar
  • 1 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt

For the meatloaf:

  • 1 Lb Grass-fed ground beef (85% lean – don’t use extra lean)
  • 1 Large egg
  • 6 Tbsp Green Bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • Pinch of Black pepper
  • 4 tsp Coconut flour

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small pot, set on high heat and stir to combined. Bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, boil for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Then, reduce the temperature to medium and cook until the sauce begins to thicken, about 4 minutes.
  • Immediately transfer to a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups) and blend, stopping to scrape down the sides often, until smooth and the dates are broken down and incorporated. That may take a few minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, combine all the meatloaf ingredients, up to the coconut flour,just until mixed – don’t overwork the meat. I find it’s easiest to use your hands.  Add in the coconut flour and mix until combined.
  • Transfer to a loaf pan and press in an even layer, making sure you don’t over pack the meatloaf – this makes it dry. Spread the sauce all over the top.
  • Bake until no longer pink inside, and the inside reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit – about 45-55 minutes. Let stand or 5 minutes.
  • DEVOUR!
