A good old-fashioned meatloaf was a staple in our southern household growing up. Not only was it an easy dish for my mom to put together for the family, but it was SO full of flavor and absolutely filling (even for the guys in the house)!
So, I knew I would eventually need to put together a grain free (healthier) version for myself to enjoy.
I’ll be honest – my first few rounds tasted great, but the texture wasn’t holding together correctly (I still devoured it though lol!). I finally found the ‘secret’ ingredient to balance out the texture without compromising the flavor…. Ground Flaxseeds!
Not only do the flaxseeds help to balance out the texture, but they also provide some added fiber & nutrition to help boost metabolism and weight loss…. which is something you don’t get with regular meatloaf. WIN/WIN!
Watch the video below to see how I make it…. and, let me know if you like it!
A few years ago we went wheat-free, and this was a great recipe. My family really enjoyed it. We got off the wheat-free diet, but have decided we felt be when on it, so I am making this meatloaf tonight as we begin our wheat-free lifestyle again. It smells delicious! Thank you for sharing it with us!!
Thanks for commenting Jill! I agree, this meatloaf is one of my favs 🙂
I’d like to make this tonight but don’t have enough flax seed, any suggestions for a substitute?
Sorry for the delayed reply! I’ve not tried it with any other substitutes, but ground chia may also work.
Thank you, my family and I love this recipe!
I’m so glad.. it’s one of my favs too!
