sliced low carb meatloaf in a loaf pan that has been glazed with sauce and garnished with parsley

Low Carb Meatloaf

This Low Carb Meatloaf is just as meatloaf should be-- tender and moist, soft but never mushy, cuts easily with a fork, but can be picked up without breaking, oozing juices, but not greasy, meaty and savory-- but, in a healthier low carb version!

  • loaf pan
  • large bowl or stand mixer bowl


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef 80/20
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small onion grated
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 5 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ cup fresh parsley chopped, optional garnish
  • 1 cup Sugar free barbecue sauce or sugar free ketchup


  • Preheat the oven to 350°
  • Place the ground beef, almond flour, onion, garlic, eggs, tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, salt and Italian seasoning in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Using the paddle attachment, turn the mixer to ‘stir’ and mix until everything is well combined.
  • NOTE: If you don’t have a stand mixer, use your hands to mix everything well.
  • Put the meat in a 9 ½ x 4 ½ x 2 ½ loaf pan and press in a bit so it fills the pan.
  • Brush with barbecue sauce.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and add more sauce to the top, brushing is on evenly. Return to the oven for another 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, let stand for 10 minutes. Garnish with extra sauce and parsley if you desire.


  • The meat will shrink slightly as it bakes, so you may notice it has pulled away from the pan when you take it out of the oven.
  • If you notice a lot excess juice has developed in the bottom of the pan you can use a turkey baster to suck some of that liquid out.
  • Not looking for low carb? Just sub out the Almond flour for bread crumbs, and use regular ketchup or barbecue sauce.
  • Ground Turkey is also delicious in this recipe
