Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Course: Snack / Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 26 balls


  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 cup full-fat ricotta
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Italian parsley chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add all of the ingredients except the sausage to a large bowl.
  • Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the sausage and mix until just combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop to form little balls.
  • Place each one onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees F on a meat thermometer.


Serve immediately with warm marinara for dipping and extra parsley sprinkled on top! Pesto would be good too - or both!
This made 26 one and a half-inch balls. This will vary depending on the size of your cookie scoop.
