Paleo Cocktail Meatballs with Grape Jelly (AIP)

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup compliant BBQ Sauce (I used this for AIP
  • 1 cup grape jelly (I used this or you can use this for a sugar free AIP version)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Season the ground beef with onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper. Roll the beef into small meatballs (you should have 30-35) and place on the parchment paper.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. You want the meatballs to be finished, but not overcooked or burnt.
  4. Cool overnight, or cool for 20-30 minutes and place in a crockpot. Add BBQ sauce and grape jelly to the crockpot and stir well.
  5. Set the crockpot to low heat for 1-2 hours.
  6. Remove the meatballs and spoon the sauce over them.
  7. Top with green onion and serve with tooth picks as an appetizer, or eat with a main dish.
