Keto + Whole30 Ketchup
The real key to this meatloaf is the True Made Foods ketchup that I use to flavor the meatloaf and as the topping. It is hands down, without a doubt, shout it from the rooftops my favorite clean eating ketchup. Trust me, I’ve tried them all.
True Made Foods is the best whole30 + keto ketchup because it has 0 added sugar and nothing artificial. All of the ingredients are plants and spices. It is sweetened naturally with apple and vegetables. Most importantly, it tastes EXACTLY like ketchup! My kids have no idea.
Whole30 + Keto Mini Meatloaf Muffins Ingredients
The rest of the ingredients is ground beef, almond flour (which is the swap out for breadcrumbs), onions + garlic, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper.
Using lots of fresh parsley gives it a fresh and bright flavor.

The only thing better than meatloaf? Mini meatloaf muffins!
They bake so much faster than a whole loaf. They’re already portioned out to the perfect serving size. And they’re so dang cute!
The individual size makes these perfect for meal prep!
These mini meatloaf muffins freeze perfectly too. Meal prep and freezing instructions for both in the recipe notes.

Whole30 + Keto Mini Meatloaf Muffins
- 2 pounds ground beef, I use 85% lean (I get my beef from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend!)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large onion, diced
- 4 cloves of garlic, grated or finely minced
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 cup True Made Foods Ketchup, divided
- 1 bunch of parsley, finely chopped
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Get out your muffin pan.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, onion, garlic + pinch of salt. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the onion is soft.
- In a large bowl, add the ground beef, cooked onion mixture, almond flour, 1/2 cup of the True Made Foods Ketchup, parsley, eggs, salt + pepper. Stir to combine. (I like using a potato masher to mix up my meat!)
- Fill each muffin pan with 6 tablespoons of the meatloaf. I love using this large cookie scoop. 2 scoops with the cookie scoop fills the muffin pan. Flatten down with your hands to completely fill the muffin pan.
- Top the meatloafs with the remaining 1/2 cup True Made Foods Ketchup.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin pan.
- Serve warm. I love mine with roasted green beans and my mashed cauliflower!
- Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.
- As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info in the Recipe Notes!

Is there a way to do this with a mini muffin tin? Can’t find my regular muffin tin. Thanks
Yes, a mini muffin pan works too! You’ll probably have to cook for just 20 minutes.
Made it for my hungry teenage boys and the gobbled it up. They even took a breadth long enough to compliment me on taste – unprompted at different times!
Haha! Thank you, Mye! I love to hear they enjoyed these so much.
These were perfect!! I used Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer cause my husband cannot have eggs. Came out perfectly! I only had a lb of ground beef and a lb of pork so I went for it. Turned out delicious!!
Everyone loved! Definitely will become a staple rotation for us.
Such a good tip! I haven’t tried that egg replacer before. So glad you all loved this recipe! Such an honor!
I think this is my fave recipe of yours! One of my family’s favorite. So good!
I made these tonight’s dinner! So good! I did add some low sugar BBQ sauce to my husband’s half…but otherwise kept recipe the same, it was so good! Served with a sauteed diced butternut squash.
Hi Linda! This makes me so happy! Can’t wait to hear what you make next!
Two lbs of ground beef make 6 muffins…? Or 6 servings? ::scratches head::
The mini meatloaf recipe makes 12 muffin sized meatloafs Kiley. A serving is 2 mini meatloafs, so the recipe is 6 servings in total. I sure hope you like them!
I make these regularly. I especially love the muffin tins instead of the loaf pan for individual portions. So easy to double for extras to freeze!
I love that you enjoy the individual portions, I do too Camille! They do freeze beautifully. So glad you make them regularly.
Thank you Natalie for another AMAZING recipe! I made these mini meatloaves all winter long – they were a staple for us. Either for lunches or dinner. It is a simple yet delicious recipe and they come out super tender and juicy. Unfortunately it would cost me a fortune to order and ship the ketchup you use to Canada (over $60 per bottle – soo sad!!) so I use a reduced sugar BBQ sauce we like and it tastes delicious. I made a batch of these for my sister when she recovered from surgery and she and her husband went crazy over them. The best!
Oh my goodness I can’t believe how much the ketchup was in Canada Carolyn! Good grief! Serving them with BBQ sounds delicious.
These mini meatloafs are giving me LIFE. Such a great comfort food! I make them using turkey and serve with potato wedges and green beans and eat them for lunch! They are so filling and flavorful! My husband didn’t believe they were Whole30 and likes them *almost* as much as his mom’s meatloaf. What is it with men loving their mom’s meatloaf so much!?
I don’t know what it is with me liking their mom’s meatloaf Holland! LOL! I am so glad you are enjoying my mini meatloafs. Sounds like the perfect lunch!
Just here to say we are STILL obsessed with these. I made a batch to freeze before we had our baby and they were so awesome to pull out and heat up quickly!
Aww this makes me so happy! Congrats on your baby, and I am so glad you had quick & easy meals with these meatloaf muffins!
Can you use silicon muffin trays?
Yes, silicone muffin pans would work beautifully Sam! I sure hope you like them.
Tastes as good, if not better than traditional meatloaf!! Highly recommend! I used ground turkey and ground beef. Next time I’m going to try turkey only.
Love that you like it better than a traditional meatloaf Katie. So glad it turned out well with turkey and ground beef. Sounds delicious!!
My husband and 2 yo loved this, no surprise there! Natalie’s recipes are always a hit! Followed by her keto salted choc brownie cookies *drool*
I am so glad you liked my mini meatloafs Karen! Even better that your husband and 2 year old love it! So happy you are enjoying my recipes including the brownie cookies. :)
Delish and so easy!!
I am so happy you liked my mini meatballs Sara! I love to hear they were delish and easy! Yeah! Exactly what I was hoping for.
Amazing comfort food!
So glad you enjoyed them Jennifer!
We love these mini meatloaf muffins and have enjoyed them MULTIPLE times during our whole30. The True Made Foods Ketchup is also delicious and I’m glad you introduced us to it so we can enjoy it, too! Thanks for sharing amazing recipes!
I agree, the mini meatloafs and True Made ketchup is a delicious combo Lindsey! So glad you enjoy it.
This recipe is delicious! We have made it several times already. We half the recipe since it’s just 2 of us at home and I use a different ketchup brand and it turns out great each time.
I am so glad you like my meatloaf muffins Jennifer! It’s good to know you can half the recipe and it turns out well. I am so happy they have turned out great for you each time you have made them.
