How to Make Keto Meatloaf?

It’s incredibly easy to make the meatloaf and at the bottom of this post you can find the full printable recipe.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F / 180C. Grease a 9×5 (23×13) inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. Add the meat, eggs, chopped onion, and the seasonings to a large bowl.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together using your hands.
  4. Transfer the meat “batter” to a greased loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven to 350F/ 180C.
  5. To make the meatloaf sauce: add tomato sauce, olive oil, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, sweetener, and vinegar to a medium bowl.
  6. Whisk until combined.
  7. Pour the sauce over the meatloaf and return to the oven for another 35-45 minutes.
  8. Let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes before slicing to make sure it won’t crumble and hold its shape.

Tips For the Best Paleo Keto Meatloaf

  • It’s important to let the meatloaf rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Make sure to use a sharp knife or a bread knife.
  • My mom used to tell me to be gentle when combining the ingredients and always use my hands. If you want moist and tender meatloafthat doesn’t fall apart don’t overworkthe mixture of meat.
  • You can always add more vegetables to the meat such as shredded zucchini, mushrooms, spinach or more onions. It’s a great way to include moreveggies in your daily meal plan and keep the meatloaf moist.
  • Don’t skip the baking sauce. If you don’t have enough time to make, the baking sauce just tops the meatloaf with some sugar-free ketchup or with a sugar-free barbecue sauce. The acidity from the sauce will cut down the fatty taste.
  • Don’t worry if there’s liquid excess after baking because that’s normal if you used high-fat ground beef. Just drain the liquid and enjoy a delicious meatloaf.

Low Carb Binder for Meatloaf

Most meatloaf recipes use breadcrumbs as a binder, but as you know that’s not low in carbs, and wheat flour is not keto-approved.

To make a meatloaf keto, I substituted the breadcrumbs with almond flour because to me it delivers a perfect texture. I prefer using almond flour over any other low carb even if it’s slightly expensive.

Some recipes call for coconut flour but I feel that coconut flour gives a slightly sweet taste and I am not a huge fan. Also using coconut flour can make the meatloaf dry if there isn’t enough liquid for it to absorb.

If you have a nut allergy and can’t use almond flour, you’ll get amazing results by using pork rinds or golden flax meal. The golden flaxseeds have a lighter taste and color than regular dark flaxseeds and are the lowest in carbs compared to other seeds. To make the flaxseed mealyou use a coffee grinder or a food processor.
