These low carb pumpkin meatballs are packed with flavor and are perfect for meal prepping ahead of time so you can just pop them in the microwave when you’re running short of time. Plus, they’re so hearty and filling that even the biggest appetites will be satisfied, especially when served with mashed cauliflower, squash, or even zoodles.

Keto Pumpkin Meatballs

Here are a couple of recipe tips to keep in mind when making keto pumpkin meatballs:

  • These meatballs freeze beautifully, so feel free to double or even triple the batch so you can have some to freeze and have on hand for next time.
  • Be sure and use pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with sugar!

Keto Pumpkin Meatballs in a dish

A keto-friendly meatball recipe enjoyed by all!

I love sharing the low carb recipes I make with non-keto friends and family to see what they think. I let my neighbors try these meatballs, and they had no idea they were keto, and they totally loved them! Even the husband, whose not a pumpkin fan, liked them. Mission accomplished!

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:

“Oh my gosh, I want this sauce on everything and I absolutely LOVE this dish! The flavors are so incredible together, and not only are the meatballs perfect, but the sauce is outta this world. After all the meatballs were gone, I was eating the sauce with a spoon from the skillet – yep, it was that good.”Jenna

    I’m going to make this this afternoon but wondered what good sides would be with it. I have various things on hand including veggies like broccolini and asparagus as well as konjac noodles and rice. Any suggestions? Maybe not in time for today but for future making if it is a good as you say!

    Made this tonight, so good. The sauce is amazing. I made the recipe as is , next time I may try another sausage as I am not always a fan of Italian sausages . I served over cauliflower rice, but want to try spaghetti squash. Thanks again for a great recipe. Hubby says make it again.

      You are welcome! I think it would taste great over spaghetti squash!
