Incredible Meatballs; Paleo, Gluten Free, Low carb

Most meatballs have bread crumbs, crackers or some other gluten. Many include cheese. My new meatball recipe uses sprouted chia seeds for texture.  The results tasted so outstanding it might become a new standard. The mouth feel and flavors went way over the top.  The appearance could be improved with better shaping, and perhaps an egg for binding, but that would just be for looks.                                                                                  DSC03887DSC03903DSC03910DSC03905DSC03911DSC03912DSC03915
