  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 25-30 meatballs 1x


These paleo bison meatballs are cooked in the air fryer and come out juicy, tender and flavorful.  They're made without breadcrumbs, paleo, low carb and whole30 approved.


  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3-5 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 Tbsp chopped basil
  • 2 Tbsp cassava flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1.25 lbs ground bison


  1. Grease the air fryer baking sheet with oil (I used avocado oil).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the onion, garlic, basil, cassava flour, paprika, cumin and salt. Mix with a fork or spatula.
  3. Add in the ground bison and mix until well combined.
  4. Roll the mixture into balls, about one rounded tablespoon in size. You should get 25-30 meatballs. Place the meatballs on the greased air fryer baking sheet*
  5. Place the baking sheet on the bottom rack of the air fryer (level 1) and close the door.
  6. Set the temperature to 400 degrees and function to "air fry".
  7. Air fry for 15 minutes.
  8. After cooking, carefully remove the meatballs from the air fryer and serve warm with your favorite side dish.


*Instructions are for the Cuisinart Air Fryer + Convection Toaster Oven, which is what I own.
