These meatballs are sweet, moist, tasty, and healthy! They are easy to make and cook fast. I am sure you and your family will love them!
Please use the pure syrup. I know there is an important price difference, but you will avoiding artificial and highly processed ingredients, while taking advantage of the nutrition that the real maple syrup provides.
Maple syrup contains at least 28 different antioxidants and it’s high in minerals such as Manganese and Zinc. Having said that, I want to make clear that still is very high in sugar and for that reason we should try to minimize its intake, such the same that with any other sugar.
You can cook them in advance and freeze them. Hope you enjoy them!
