Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients to make the meatballs. Divide the mixture into quarters, then separate each quarter into 4 balls. Arrange meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients and stir until peanut butter dissolves into ketchup. Remove meatballs from oven and top with sauce, placing a dollop on top of each ball and return to oven for 5-10 min more, or until cooked through.
