In a small bowl, combine ketchup, date paste, and mustard. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients. Add 1/4 cup of the ketchup mixture to the meat mixture and stir till combined.
Shape into mini meat loaves. For us, that looks like giant meatballs we cook in muffin tins, if cooking in oven. Size is totally individual and you can do more small meatballs if that works better for you. We do 10 large meat loaves from this recipe.
Cook in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or air fryer for 15 minutes, cooking until no longer pink in the middle. For the last 5 minutes, cook topped with remaining ketchup mixture.
*To make date paste, soak 1 cup pitted dates in 1/2 cup hot water (pressing dates down into the hot water a little so they are all soaking). Let soak for 5 minutes, then blend until smooth. I do all of this in my ninja blender cup for simplicity.
