Step 1Preheat the oven to 230 °C/ 450 °F. Dice the mozzarella in 20-25 equal sized pieces. Place it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes. Freezing the cheese will prevent it from leaking out while baking. Place the meat, egg, minced garlic, thyme, oregano, ...

Step 2... almond flour, salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix until well combined using your hands or a mixer.

Step 3Divide the meat into 20-25 pieces (I made 20). Remove the cheese from the freezer.

Step 4Take each piece and flatten using your hands. Place a piece of the mozzarella cheese in the middle and fold the meat over it.

Step 5Briefly roll between hands and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes.

Step 6Meanwhile, prepare the Marinara Sauce. Place the marinara sauce in a large pan and heat up over a medium heat.
The first time I made this recipe, I used too much marinara sauce (photo below) which I then used to make another batch of meatballs.

Step 7Take the meatballs from the oven and place in the pan with marinara sauce. Using a spoon or a spatula, cover with the sauce from all sides. Drain the olives (I used both green and black Kalamata olives).

Step 8Insert a toothpick into each olive and then into each meatball. Garnish with freshly chopped basil and enjoy!
Tip: You can serve the marinara sauce separately from the meatballs by dipping into it.
