Grain Free Meatloaf | Real Food RN

Whenever I think of meatloaf I hear “Meatloaf, meatloaf, double-beetloaf. I hate meatloaf” playing over and over in my head. Quoted directly from one of my favorite movies of all time! The only thing is that I absolutely do NOT hate meatloaf, I love the stuff. But, ever since going grain-free we haven’t been eating it because I don’t use the breadcrumbs. Well, I just had to come up with my own version of this classic staple meal. Oh boy, did I ever. I like my version much better because its sweet and savory, all while packing a nutritional punch too! 


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, grated
  • 1 medium apple, chopped
  • 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
  • 3 pastured eggs
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour — where to find
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp fresh or dried rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp fresh or dried oregano (you can even use a few drops of oregano essential oil, find that HERE)
  • pinch paprika


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Grease a glass baking dish or loaf pan with coconut oil
  • Chop apple and onion, or process in a food processor until well chopped
  • Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands until well combined
  • Form into the glass baking dish
  • Bake at 350°F for 30-45 minutes
  • Check it with a meat thermometer, follow temperature recommendations for beef
  • Top with organic ketchup or Bacon and Bone Broth BBQ Sauce and bake an additional 10 minutes

P.S. If you want to find the best gluten free items online (best prices around, believe me I have checked!) with free shipping, I highly recommend Thrive Market, they even have a special Gluten Free section. CLICK HERE to check them out!
