NC Ingredients: sweet potato, pecans, turkey
Preheat the oven to 400F. Coat a mini muffin tin generously with cooking spray.
Shred the sweet potato and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the pecans, coconut oil, garlic, paprika, salt and cinnamon. Add the sweet potatoes and ground turkey. Mix well, using your hands.
Working with one tablespoon and a half of mixture at a time, form 24 balls (we like to use a small ice cream scoop, so they are all even in size). Place them in the mini muffin tin and bake them for 30 minutes.
Right before serving, heat BBQ sauce on low heat. Add the sweet potato meatballs and until warm and coated with the BBQ sauce.
