These Swedish meatballs and that creamy dairy free Swedish meatballs sauce are the perfect comfort food during cold weather. It’s one of my favorite childhood recipes that always made me ask for more! But since I can’t eat dairy and gluten anymore I had to adapt my mom’s recipe into a more allergy friendly one.



★ How To Make Dairy Free Gluten Free Swedish Meatballs

First of all I replaced the pork meat with some lean ground turkey. Turkey meatballs are lighter than traditional Swedish Meatballs plus healthier.

Then I replaced the famous store-bought bread crumbs with gluten free bread crumbs made from my homemade gluten free bread. I combined all the ingredients in a large bowl and mixed well with my hand.

Then I formed equally sized meatballs, placed them in a glass baking dish and baked them at a high temperature in the oven. While the meatballs were baking I made the dairy free Swedish meatballs sauce: coconut cream, a touch of tangy brown mustard and rich beef or chicken stock made a delicious dairy free gravy. The addition of seasonings and coconut aminos brightened up the flavor considerably. To thicken the sauce I used some cassava flour.

★ Can You Make Keto Swedish Meatballs?

Sure! You can totally make meatballs without breadcrumbs. Just replace the gluten free breadcrumbs with almond meal or if you can’t have nuts: some grated vegetables will make great keto meatballs. You can use: zucchini, cauliflower or maybe even some mushrooms. For the gravy replace the cassava flour with arrowroot powder, same amount and leave it as it is or replace the coconut cream with the regular sour cream if you can have dairy.

★ Can You Make Paleo & Whole30 Swedish Meatballs?

No problem. For the whole30 meatballs replace the breadcrumbs with grated veggies just like with the keto meatballs, but you have a larger choice here: sweet potatoes or carrots are also whole30 compliant.
Make sure you use a compliant mustard, without sugar or white wine. I always use this apple cider stone ground brown mustard with simple great ingredients.
For the meatballs: replace the breadcrumbs with almond meal or if you can’t have nuts: some grated vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots or cauliflower will do.
For the gravy replace the cassava flour with arrowroot powder, same amount.
If you must serve your gluten free Swedish meatballs with jelly then choose a sugar free whole30 compliant fruit jam, but you can also omit it entirely.

★ Make Meatballs Without Eggs:

Those allergic to eggs can easily remove the egg from the recipe, the meatballs will hold their shape just fine. I tried making my meatballs without eggs multiple times!
