Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Yield 14 - 16 meatballs


  • 1 can pinto or black beans
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup quick oats or almond flour
  • 1 tsp minced garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • see the flavor options listed above


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F if baking instead of frying. Drain and rinse the beans very well. Combine everything in a food processor until evenly blended - stop while it still has some texture but no large pieces remain. Roll into balls (small meatballs cook much more evenly), and either pan fry in a little oil, or place on a parchment-lined baking tray and cook on the center rack for 10 minutes, then turn each ball and bake an additional 10 minutes or until desired texture is reached.
