Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 30 balls
Calories: 284kcal


  • 1 lb bulk sausage Use raw (uncooked) sausage
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal (see note below if you don't have flaxseed meal on hand)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese room temp


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Mix all ingredients together into a large bowl until well incorporated. I find that using my hands is the best way to mix.
  • Roll approximately 2 tbsp of the mixture into equal 2 inch sized balls. This will make 30 sausage balls.
  • Bake for 16 minutes and then move to the top rack and broil on high for 2-4 minutes until the tops get browned.
  • Enjoy warm or at room temperature.


If you don't have flaxseed meal on hand, you can substitute it by adding one egg to the recipe.

    Easy and delicious! And they keep me filled up all morning. They are best fresh out of the oven, but I made batch and was able to eat them all week for breakfast with a very short reheat in the microwave.
