chicken meatballs

Chicken Meatballs from Spunky Coconut

This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the

Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market.  We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.

How refreshing!  I hadn’t been out of the house for that long in a while, and Kelly, her husband Andrew (an author in his own right) and their girls were so fun to be with.  The outing totally took my mind off work, and I’m really looking forward to getting together with all of them again.  Below is my version of Kelly’s delightfully delicious gluten free chicken meatballs.

Chicken Meatballs from Spunky Coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the zucchini, carrots, parsley and garlic
  3. Add almond flour, egg, and chicken
  4. Then add salt, pepper and chili powder and process until thoroughly combined
  5. Drop tablespoon sized balls of the chicken mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes
  7. Serve

chicken meatballs

I serve these meatballs over (gluten free) homemade Zucchini Noodles, with the Tomato Sauce recipe from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, though you can serve them over anything you like!  I have found that the Zucchini Noodles taste even better if you toss them in a bit of olive oil and tomato sauce and let them sit and marinate for an hour on the counter.  Then top with these gluten-free meatballs.  Then yum.

  3. Helen Adams says

  4. Lynn says

    Hey Elena,
    Do I grind up the uncooked chicken breast before I ad it to the mix? Thank you and would love to have the Spunky Coconut recipe book!

  5. julie reuter says

    I can’t wait to try these meatballs. I’m heading to the farmer’s market in the morning and will definitely pick up some zucchini so I can try them.

  6. Gael says

    Clicked on the “printer friendly version” and the darn thing tried to print 266 pages. including all of the comments. Something’s wrong….

  7. Stacy says

    I tried this recipe at home, but as the meatballs baked, they expelled quite a bit of liquid; any thoughts on what may have happened?

  8. says

    These were amazing, all the family loved them, even grandpa and grandma, (who think we are crazy for our candida diet). Thanks for all your hard work to help us have a great meal.

  9. Natalie says

    WOW!!! These were amazzzzzzing!! My 9 year old gobbled them up! Hubby wasn’t crazy about them…I think it was in his head…not sure he’s ever had ground chicken ;-). This will be a new staple in my house! I never knew I could use my food processor to found up chicken like this! Tis was super easy!

  10. Cinthia says

    I am excited to try this. I have celiac and have struggled with how to get healthy. I am excited to have found you and your recipes. I look forward to trying this out!

  11. Noel says

    I think a vegie spiralizer would be great for making zucchini noodles. I wonder if anyone here has one to recommend — I’ve looked at reviews for a couple and cannot decide which is easiest to use.
    Grated zucchini is super easy, but not great for zucchini noodels.

    This recipe looks yummy — I’ve made the meatballs, and the are very good. Now I can make the whole thing b/c I have found a Mock Tomato sauce that’s delicious that my whole family loves very much like tomato sauce — it’s in Donna Gates’ Body Ecology Diet book.

  12. Annie Patten says

    I would love to win your cookbook. I just found your site and have been telling ALL my friends and family about it. I have been making your recipes and LOVE LOVE LOVE them.

  13. Lauren Christine. says

    i just made these tonight and they were absolutely delicious! and easy. i will definitely be making these again. thank you for sharing.

  14. LP says

    I made this last night for a paleo potluck at my gym. I was a little worried that I mixed up too many vegetables (I didn’t measure out a cup of each, just shredded a zuc and 2 carrots) but they came out looking like the picture. They were moist and had a subtle sweet flavor. And the recipe made a lot more meatballs than I was anticipating (I’d guess 30-40). It’s a good potluck recipe and I bet readily adaptable to whatever veggies and herbs you have on hand. Thanks!

  15. Jennifer says

    Dear Elana,
    I got your cookbook as an early birthday present. I love it. We have tried the chocolate chip cookies and they are the BEST I’ve ever had. I cannot wait to try the Cheddar Cheese Crackers. I love Cheez-Its and miss them since I’ve switched to gluten-free.
    Thank you

  16. Emily says

    This dish looks amazing! I am going to have to try it some time…yum.
    I am on your blog all the time and I love it! Thanks

  17. says

    I was thinking the same thing as Hallie – spaghetti squash! But then again, I’m full-on into winter squash mode. I love your zucchini noodles idea too. These look like a lovely light meal.

  18. winni says

    HI Elana, I know you are really busy, but I was wondering if you have ever cooked with peanut flour??? I’ve recently found some at Trader Joe’s and I am not really sure what to do with it. Any thoughts would be great…

  19. alisa joy says

    oooh…i love the idea of tossing veggies into the meatballs instead of just meat (or meat and bread crumbs). it’s a great way to sneak in some extra veggies. yum!

  20. Jennifer Breslin says

    Our family of three have adopted the Paleo lifestyle after reading of the benefits to those with autoimmune problems. I want to thank people like you for making it an easy and delicious transformation-(we have your almond flour cookbook, which without- I could not keep my family happy!) Can’t wait to try this recipe! THANKS!!!

  21. Michelle says

    My family just loves your site because everytime I tell them that I am making one of Elana’s recipes they just know something good will be coming their way!! Thank you for all that you and your family does to help families like ours that have dietary restrictions.


  22. Kerry says

    I am excited to try these meatballs. I have decided this will be the one that makes me get a food processor. Thanks!

  23. Ada Rousso says

    I LOVE your cookbook. I use it all the time. My grandson’s favorite recipe is your “Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry Fig Filling!!!!” I can’t wait to try the new cupcake cookbook.

  24. says

    As a staunch Italian gone grain-free following my fiancée’s lead to eliminate all grains from his diet, I thank-you for all the creative recipes and ideas you post! I bought your cookbook a few weeks ago and never thought I would be this excited to explore a diet free of grains/wheat. It’s a relief to have the internet where I can follow a community of bloggers who have committed to the same lifestyle choice. Thank-you!

  25. says

    Thank you for your wonderful recipes, Elana. I regularly visit the Spunky Coconut recipe blog which is packed with delicious, nutritious recipes. It really kick-started my use of coconut in the kitchen. Coconuts provide an electrolyte drink with their water, a dairy-free milk, a healthy oil and wonderful tasting shredded goodness with plenty of health benefits to boot!

  26. briita says

    these look fabulous! and the possibilities endless, maybe replace the parsley with cilantro, add some cumin and serve drizzled with yogurt sauce…….

  27. Kathryn Olivarez says

    I want to thank you for your wonderful recipes. They are such a treasure for all of us just getting started with gluten free cooking/baking. Thanks again.

  28. Shannon says

    These sound great and a sneaky way to get veggies in my kids. My husband hates meatballs though – I wonder how they would cook up as patties? Or maybe I just add the zucchini and carrots to my meat the next time I make spaghetti sauce. Thanks for all of the great recipes!

  29. jan says

    Am I ever happy I found your website! I need inspiration-especially for main dishes. I have celiac, too. I got your book and made the salmon burgers last night. Yum. Can’t thank you enough for great recipes that are easy to make. Now I have to buy a few ingredients and was glad you put the contacts for them in your book. Thanks, Jan

  30. Bern says

    This looks delicious!! Thank you for your continuing fantastic recipe posts, I love the simple goodness you present in your blog XX

  31. Cristina says

    Brilliant! I was so excited when I saw this recipe. I can see that with some seasoning adjustments I can do Italian, Southwestern or Thai chicken meatballs. Yum! This is on my list to cook this week. I think this one will make my top ten list along with Elena’s Tangy “Peanut Sauce”.
    Thanks to Both Elena and Kelly, I have lots of great inspiration and recipes. I went gluten about 5 years ago when I realized I was not doing well with wheat or corn. Then added soy and potatoes to the list, but something was still not right, so now I am eating grain free and am doing quite well. Thanks to both Elena and Kelly for their great blogs, cookbooks and inspiration. It really helps on those days I think I can’t face another day of cooking from scratch!

  32. Jenni Lintz says

    The ingredients are on the grocery list and Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs are on this week’s menu. Yum, yum!

  33. Andrea G says

    I was just officially diagnosed with celiac disease this last Thursday. It would be lovely to win one of your cookbooks. Your food looks so tasty. I will definitely try the chicken meatballs.

  34. Sharon says

    These meatballs look very yummy! I’d love to try The Spunky Coconut cookbook! I’ve tried several of her recipes and they were great. It’s wonderful not to have to figure out how to adjust so many recipes for multiple food sensitivities because you two have great ones to offer!

    Gal’s cookbook

  35. Kathy says

    I have just discovered your amazing blog. This cookbook has been on my wish list for awhile now. It has been sold out twice when I went to pick it up at my local Barnes and Noble.

  36. Kristin says

    Hi Elana, just made your rosemary lemon chicken last week and everyone loved it! My birthday is October 7th and The Spunky Coconut cookbook would be a great present! :-)

  37. Marcia Robbins says

    I am always excited to see an email from Elana’s Pantry and see what is now on your website. Now I have the Spunky Coconut to follow too! This is great. Hard to find casein, gluten, sugar free sites. Now all I need is one that is also nightshade-free since that is the anti-inflammation diet we need to follow.
    Thank you for sharing so much good stuff.

  38. Nancy says

    I shall definitely try these meatballs, both with ground chicken and with ground turkey. Maybe add some shitake mushrooms? Thanks for heads up about the Spunky Coconut- it’s new to me.

  39. says

    I am new to eating Gluten Free. I found your web site in Venessa Maltins cook book. There is excellent info on here. I just found out I have Ulcerative Colitis also, more stuff I can’t eat! Life goes on and is enhanced so much by people like you who take the time to do what you do.
    Thank you for including pictures. If my wife can see that Gluten Free looks good she might eat it if I make it!

  40. Kristin Walukas says

    These look great and I think the kids would love these in their lunchbox too. Great idea to marinate the zucchini “noodles” ahead of time.
    As always, thanks for the great ideas!

  41. Beth Byrd says

    WOW! This looks YUMMO – I will be making this, this weekend!! Thanks for all the great food ideas and recipes – I LOVE following your advice :-)

  42. says

    These meatballs look awesome! Cannot wait to try them during the week. I have never made zucchini noodles and plan to try them too. I love grinding my own chicken for burgers. This will be another experience of delicious foods from Elana!
    I would LOVE to have a copy of Kelly’s cookbook.
    Thanks, Elana

  43. says

    I have been “into” coconut lately. I like using a mix of coconut flour, almond flour and Pamela’s Gluten-Free flour when baking – this past week I made a yummy banana bread this way. I also have been adding shredded coconut to things. This week I purchased and tried coconut milk (packaged and sold next to the almond and soy milks) and it was delish! I would love more coconut recipe ideas now that I am a coconut fan! Thanks Elana for your great blog!

  44. says

    This recipe is a real winner! I’m always looking for ways to use chicken to make diverse dishes, as chicken is my family’s meat of choice. The zucchini noodles only make it better, while offering a much healthier choice. Thanks for a great recipe! This will be a favorite in my household!

  45. jenny says

    hi there,

    as always, i love your website. i cannot wait to try these meatballs and zucchini spaghetti. so healthy! i’ve been meaning to add more coconut into my diet (since i am pregnant and am very conscious of every nutrient going into my body) so, i’d LOVE to be entered in the contest to win this book!

    i am finding it more challenging to stick to my allergy-free lifestyle while pregnant. every day is a struggle and i’m not quite sure why…

    thanks and take good care!
    ps – how do you get the zucchini so perfect?

  46. Bonnie Stone says

    The Spunky Coconut is another blog that I frequent but I haven’t been able to afford adding her cookbook to my shelf yet. Winning this book would be so fun and quite a blessing! Thanks for hosting a great give-away!!!

  47. Dorothea says

    I just checked out Kelly’s Web site and loved it! I’d love to win a copy of her cookbook too – thanks for the opportunity and the giveaway!

  48. Kelly Collins says

    Thank you so much for all of the wonderful recipes! I have learned so much from you and I’m really enjoying cooking gluten-free!

  49. Kim says

    Oh, wow. You did it again! Another simple, elegant and wonderfully delicious creation. I’m inspired once more…..thanks, Elana.

  50. elise says

    These look great! I think my kids would like them too. I would love a copy of Kelly’s book- so far your cookbook is the only gluten free one I have!

  51. says


    Elana~ This meatballs look fabuouls and easy!!!
    I want to try making a meatloaf with this recipe!

    I have two questions:

    1. Why are so many people “gluten Free” now???

    2. Why are the meatballs yellowish (not a bad thing)

    Thank you sooooooo much!!!

  52. teresa says

    I’ve just learned that I am gluten intolerant. A friend told me about you and the success she has had with your recipes. I would love to receive a copy of your cookbook!

  53. Angela says

    Mmmmm. I want to make these meatballs for dinner tonight!!! I made a double batch of the cinnamon apple muffins from your cookbook last night and they were gobbled up this morning (there are seven of us)!

  54. Alyssa P says

    I can’t wait to try these. Might be a good mind afternoon snack for me at school. Any idea if using organic ground chicken will yield the same results?

  55. Heather says

    This looks delicious! I hadn’t thought of using your zucchini noodles for pasta- another genious idea! Thanks, Elana!

  56. Elizabeth Brett says

    These look Absolutely delicious….and TENDER…. It is so hard to make a tender meatbeall with out breadcrumbs…but now an alternative. High veggie and almond meal.

  57. Judy Smith says

    Hi Elana, I have your cookbook and would enjoy very much to have Kelly’s cookbook to add to my collection. Thank you for your recipes, you are an angel. :)

  58. Linda says

    I just got my copy of your book recently and still trying things in it. Love everything so far!

    I have this one on my wishlist too so would love to win a copy! Thanks for the chance! :)

  59. Sharon L S says

    I’d never eaten much cocomut before recently diagnosed Celiac, but mmmmmmmm good. I first tried it last Thanksgiving in a pumpkin pie crust. Can’t wait to try the meatballs. Thanks for continual great recipies. (From someone who never spent any time in the kitchen for 40 some years)

  60. Emily says

    Glad you got to have a break from all the work!

    This recipe is so pretty and colorful. I love zucn noodles too, so easy. I bet Kelly’s cookbook has wonderful recipes in it :)

  61. Stephanie says

    The chicken/zucchini combination is one of my faves. Never thought of making zucchini noodles. I’ll have to try them. Thanks.

  62. Danielle Fiddy says

    I just found the glory of Coconut and have been looking for fun things to make with it!
    I love the water that comes from a fresh coconut!!! soo yummmy!
    I have enjoyed some of the meals on your site! Thank you so much

  63. Debbie says

    These look delicious!! Can’t wait to try them! My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in Dec of 2008. I started him on a grain free/dairy free diet in April of 2009. I could never have done it without your website and your wonderful cookbook. So, thank you, thank you, thank you! He has been off of insulin for 18 months now! Amazing!!!!

  64. Susan Shaver says

    Your cookbook is on my Christmas wish list. As well as 5 lbs of almond flour. I still have enough almond flour to make the yummy sounding Spunky Coconut meat balls.

    Thanks Elana,

  65. AmyGrace says

    I am going to try these meat balls with Spagetti squash and pesto. Should make a wonderfully healthy meal. Thank you again for sharing. -Amy

  66. cara mitch says

    who knew, all those years ago, when I was hip-deep in Doritos that I would emerge as a mature woman with rice flour and almond meal on her mind! thank you!!

  67. Erica Dinner says

    can’t wait to make this recipe. I made your rye bread yesterday and OMG – totally amazing! And forget about that Thai Soup – 2nd batch being made tomorrow

  68. Samantha says

    I am so excited to try making these meatballs! Especially with the hidden veggies(best way to get my son to eat them). The recipe is so different from the ones I make. I use crushed rice cakes when I make meatballs so I am curious to see the difference.

  69. Cara says

    These meatballs look delicious! I had not seen the Spunky Coconut blog. I am excited to find another gluten free blog to draw from! Thanks so much!

  70. Elizabeth Fern. says

    I’d love to win a copy of The Spunky Coconut Cookbook. My family and I are new to the world of allergy-free cooking and I was mourning the loss of yummy foods. Thanks to your book Elana, I have hope of instilling beauty from our bounty onto our dinner table. I’d love more books to help me in this endeavor.

  71. Sharmista says

    Your blog and Spunky Coconut are two of my favorite recipe sources but I don’t have either cookbook yet! (Shame on me…)

    Would love to win this one! :)

  72. Kelly ahti says

    OooH! I would love to win that cookbook! I have your almond flour cookbook and it is my favorite GF cookbook! The fact that the recipies are so simple is such a relief from all of that complicated GF baking. I am interested to explore coconut flour, too (I am thinking I need to try grain free living for a while…).

  73. says

    I am new to the almond/coconut flour world and discovering new possibilities to alter old favorites and learn new ones each day. The only thing you need is a bit of creativity and open mindedness to be successful on ths journey! I know the book will help me in my travels!

  74. Laura says

    I love the spunky coconut!! I could really use this cookbook as I just went dairy free in addition to being gf already. Love you too Elana!

  75. Jen M says

    Love your recipes. Can’t wait to try this one and the cookbook looks interesting too! Always looking for more healthy gluten free recipes for my family!

  76. Contessa says

    Oh how I would love this cookbook! The meatballs look especially yummy. I am loving finding really nourishing ways to feed my family. Both of your blogs are such an inspiration. Thanks!

  77. says

    No need to enter me into the giveaway as I already have Kelly’s great cookbook. Just wanted to add to the chorus of Kelly fans. How wonderful that you all got to meet! :-) I made Kelly’s meatballs before and loved them! Of course, I know I would like your variation, too, Elana. ;-)


  78. Molly says

    I would love a copy of the Spunky Coconut Cookbook! I am trying really hard to cook more, and I know having recipes in front of me surely helps.
    These meatballs look SO amazing! I went to the farmer’s market today, so I have ALL the ingredients and can’t wait to get this one made. Thank you Elana. These look great!

  79. Sharon Mahan says

    OMG my two favorite bloggers!! Those chicken meatballs look amazing … and they do look like something my gluten-, casein- and soy-free picky-eater kids will actually eat!! Can’t wait to try them. And to see Spunky Coconut on your blog, Elana, was so much fun. I’d love a copy of the cookbook!!

  80. says

    Ahhh. At first I thought I read “spunky coconut chicken meatballs.”

    This is good too. I like the amount of vegetable mixed in with the meat.

  81. Emily Jelassi says

    wow…this looks delicious! can’t wait to make it for dinner tomorrow :) thanks, elena, for all the wonderful recipes!

  82. Kristen says

    Thanks to you I just started the primal blueprint diet, four weeks and great success. I feel wonderful. Your recipes have really made it an easy transition. I would love to try the spunky coconut!

  83. Tracy Milstead says

    Thank you for doing these giveaways! It helps those of us who can’t always buy the cookbooks we’d love to have. :)

  84. Bridgette says

    This recipe looks great . . . though as a vegetarian I may need to make some substitutions! I usually end up subbing some chickpeas for chicken and it comes out great. I think I may try that with this recipe : )

    • says

      If you try this with chick peas, please let me know how it comes out. Would you use a whole can, or maybe just one cup, and put in the blender instead of the chicken?

  85. Vickie says

    As most know who are gluten and dairy sensitive, it takes an immense amount of time to cook everything from scratch, let alone come up with recipes that work for us. THANK YOU for doing the work, sharing your wonderful recipes, and helping to make life a little easier for us!! Not only have we benefited greatly, but so have my doctor and dentist, who are sensitive also, as I have shared some of the goodies with them. God bless you!!

  86. Bev says

    I adore the idea of these chicken meatballs! I love doing up spaghetti squash so can see this on the menu this weekend! Thanks!! b

  87. Jill Kareta says

    Thank you so much for the daily, delicious, dishes!!! I always look forward to reading your blogs! Celiac runs in the family and we are all now Gluten Free! I was at a loss until I found your site!
    Thanks again!

  88. Karrie says

    I love doing making an extra large batch of meatballs and putting the extras in the freezer for busy nights when I don’t have a lot of time. I will have to try the zucchini noodles as well. That sounds easy and tasty.

  89. Lois Silverman says

    the chicken meatballs look great Elana. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I sure hope I win Kelly’s cookbook. I read her blog as well as yours. She seems very sweet.

  90. Pam says

    I am so excited to have found your website! I am taking on a Paleo diet and you have a lot of options on your site. As someone who loves to cook and bake I have been struggling with new ideas. Thank you!

  91. Jessica says

    You and Kelly are seriously my heroes! I have your cookbook and would LOVE to get hers as well. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  92. Arlyn says

    I LOVE Kelly’s recipes =) I so need this cookbook so that I won’t have to keep bringing my laptop in the kitchen to get her recipes lol .Hope I get it!

  93. says

    I am so happy to have found your web site. I have been using your cookbook for about 6 months now and my kids are in love with everything we have tried so far. I thought being a gluten-free household would be a challenge, but we are eating healthier than ever! Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes!

  94. Vanessa says

    These look delicious and healthy – the perfect combination ^_^ Since my husband went gf over a year ago in a successful attempt to stop some particularly nasty stomach pain he’d endured for over a year, I’ve been looking to add greater variety to our diet. My husband’s staples so far are gf but not entirely healthy, so whenever I can squeeze some more veggies into a meal, its a wonderful thing!

  95. says

    Hi Elana,

    Beautiful photos. And so happy you finally got to meet the lovely and talented Kelly. She’s never without a smile one her face.

    Kelly’s cookbook has been on my “must have” list for quite a while. Ooh, I would just love to get my hands on a copy :)

    Hope you’re doing great


  96. Paula says

    My 4 yr. old son is gluten/casein free and we just realized that sugar has a major effect on his behavior. I found the Spunky Coconut blog this week and I love it! I can’t wait to try the recipes. I would love to have the cookbook!

  97. Ellen says

    i’ve never been a huge fan of chicken meatballs (turkey can be good if you use dark meat) but these look tasty. thanks for the recipe and giveaway!

  98. MaryBeth Matthews says

    Yum! Will have to try this one. It’s coconut anything with me these days. I just made the “Jelly Donuts” recipe today, with coconut flour, of course. It’s really difficult not to eat just one.

    But I’ve really gotten into the nutritional benefits of coconut, including the “flour,” especially the protein aspect. I’ve been adding it to my morning smoothie (with almond milk, frozen banana, and hemp powder).

    It’s quite the energetic combination! I’ve been losing weight, too, which is quite exciting after all these years.

    I’d love to see the recipes in this book.

    Thanks, Elana.

  99. Carolyn says

    These look yummy! I have made several items from your website and they all have turned out great. Even my one year old loves your zucchini bread!! Thanks for all the hard work in creating fabulous recipes.

  100. Xintia Preda says

    What a yummy recipe! Can’t wait to prepare it tomorrow!
    Thank you so much for all your recipes! You are a true example and an inspiration to everyone!

    Xintia :-)

  101. Melissa says

    These look deeelicious! I will surely be making these soon! I ordered your Almond Flour Cookbook last week, and I am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival, so I can try the recipes and start cooking like crazy! Your website is amazing, and I have no doubt the cookbook will be just as wonderful!

  102. Bethanie Lundgren says

    I’m definitely making these very soon! I have everything on hand! Do you think these could be frozen after formed into meatballs? Should they be cooked first before frozen or frozen raw? Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!

  103. Quintina says

    My family and I eat gluten/dairy free, and without your recipes I’d be totally lost! I always look forward to seeing your new recipes and blog posts, and my children love when I bake from your cookbook! Yet again you have found a great looking, easy recipe that I am sure my family will love! Thank you.

      Hi Elana,
      I just made the spicy chix meatballs, but use cilantro instead of parsley, used tomato instead of carrot(as that was what I had in the home) Also, instead of using an egg I used the end result of =one T of grd flaxseed in 3T water.
      Recipe came out good.

      Thank you for what you do. All is so much appreciated, coming from a finky eating with loads of allergies……..Wishing you the best.
