GF Thai Meatballs

These meatballs meet all the family dietary requirements in our house. Dairy free, gluten free, and the kids love them. They can easily be made Paleo friendly by changing the peanut butter to sun butter. They are easy to make ahead of time and they go fast, so you might want to double the recipe.
