Ingredients
Meatloaf
  • 2lbs ground turkey or beefuncooked
  • 1/2cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2cup oat flour{note instructions below}
  • 2 eggs
  • 2cups zucchini, shredded and squeezed dry{note instructions below}
  • 2Tbsp Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix{Click HERE for Recipe}
  • 1tsp sea salt
  • 1/2tsp ground black pepper
Glaze
  • 2/3cup ketchup
  • 1/4cup maple syrup
  • 1Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2tsp dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Cover 2 cooling racks with tin foil and place each on a cookie sheet.
  2. If you don’t have oat flour on hand, simply use a heaping 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats and pulse it in your blender until it resembles flour. To shred your zucchini, place chunks of it in your food processor and blend until you do not see any chunks. Pour the mixture into a large kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. if you do not have a food processor, it works just as well to finely shred your zucchini with a grater and wring out as much water as possible with a towel.
  3. Mix together all meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl until well blended. Divide the meat mixture into two parts. Make each part into a flat loaf on top of the tin foiled cooling racks and place in the oven for 45-60 minutes.
  4. While the meatloaf is baking, mix together all of the glaze ingredients.
  5. Remove the finished meatloaves from the oven and cover with glaze. *The meatloaf is done when you see all the juices and fat dripping from the bottom of the meatloaf. The loaf should look browned.
  6. Return to oven for another 10-15 minutes. Remove the glazed meatloaf from the oven and enjoy with your favorite sides!
Recipe Notes

Feel free to cut the recipe in half and only prepare 1 loaf. It will turn out just as well, but fair warning…we can not be held responsible for your sadness when there are not leftovers.
