Sweet Potato Molasses Meatballs

What a fun week it's been. I am hosting the Instagram takeover for Autoimmune Paleo and made my go to meatballs like these. These bite size eats are almost complete mini meal on their own. Serve them with a salad, on a bed zuoodles or spaghetti squash and you got yourself another easy AIP meal. I make them often because they are tasty and have protein, starch and vegetable all there. There are great for snacks  and freeze well.   It is similar to my Squash Sausage recipe but some of you AIP peeps were interested in the exact recipe so here it is.
