Wheat gluten-oatmeal 'meatballs,' great on subs, pasta, or sauced as an appetizer. Vegan-friendly. Wheat gluten-oatmeal 'meatballs,' great on subs, pasta, or sauced as an appetizer. Vegan-friendly.
Number of Servings: 10


    1 cup steel cut oats
    1 cup walnuts
    1 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten
    1 medium onion
    2 tbs nutritional yeast
    1 tsp coarse black pepper
    1 tsp sea salt
    1 tbs dry basil
    1 tsp garlic powder
    2 tbs sweet paprika
    1 1/2 cup tap water


In a food processor, chop walnuts and oats until fine; quarter and add onion, processing until uniformly crumbly. Add spices and olive oil, and mix. Add vital wheat gluten and water, and IMMEDIATELY process until uniform in color and texture.

Place dough into a bowl, and scoop with a #50 portion scoop. Roll between palms until round, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Cover with parchment, and bake at 350 degrees for thirty-five minutes. Uncover, and flip the balls. finish baking for another ten minutes. Add to your favorite barbecue, marinara or Swedish sauce.

As prepared, makes 10, four wheatball servings. This can also be shaped as a loaf, and baked the same way: thirty-five minutes covered, ten uncovered. Ten slices, same caloric content. Now, mind you, this SOUNDS high in fat, but they're GOOD, nut-based fats. And, by the way, this recipe is Vegan-friendly.

  • I am a caterer. I used this recipe for a small party that requested Vegan dishes. We served these with scratch made basil marinara over fettuccine, It was well received by the vegans as well as the non vegans.

    The directions say "Add Olive Oil" though there is no Olive Oil in the ingrediant list.

  • Really enjoyed these. I used fresh garlic instead powder; also added a little seasoned breadcrumb to soak moisture (I didn't have a full cup of oatmeal). These "wheatballs" have great flavor and I liked the texture. They were a little chewy but somehow I prefer that to soft store bought purchases. - 10/14/13
