Meatloaf muffins are simply the ingredients of a meatloaf cooked in a muffin tin! It’s a faster way to get the great flavor and nutrition of a meatloaf, and it’s one of my favorite meal prep recipes.

To make this recipe healthier, I used ground turkey. I also swapped out breadcrumbs and used almond flour instead. These tasty meatloaf muffins are a fun bite-sized version of my Air Fryer Meatloaf or my Chicken Meatloaf.

Is this Recipe Healthy?

  • Because this recipe uses almond flour as a binder instead of traditional wheat flour, the muffins are grain-free, gluten-free, and keto-friendly, too.
  • Lastly, the nutritional profile of these Turkey Meatloaf Muffins is pretty great, especially if you’re following a lower-carb, higher protein diet for weight loss or weight management.

FAQs

Can I use 99% extra lean ground turkey in this recipe?

Yes, but the muffins may turn out drier and with less flavor than the 93% lean ground turkey.

Can these muffins be baked in a loaf pan instead of a muffin tin?

Yes, but you may need to increase the cooking time to 35 minutes or longer to ensure that the middle of the meatloaf gets cooked through. If you want to be sure, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of the meatloaf. It should read at least 165 degrees F.

Is this recipe Whole30?

Yes, it is as long as you use a brand of sugar-free ketchup.
