Happy Monday everyone!
It’s very unusual for me to update this blog during weekday but hey I am trying to keep up posting at least 1 post per week.
Anyway I’ve been in love with this mini tuna patties as my go to snack. Perfect for in between meals when you need to eat something to tide you over before your main meal.
The best thing is, this recipe is super easy to make and doesn’t take that much effort either! In the past, I’ve made some kind of patties but it needs to be pan fried, which took more time and I just wanted to make it simpler by baking them instead!
For seasonings, you can always use whatever seasonings to your like. Personally, I’ve been loving this homemade taco seasonings as my go to seasonings for most of my foods.
My hubby told me that these patties taste like Crab Cakes.
Without further adieu, here’s the recipe. Simple and easy!

|Total time||30 minutes|

- 10oz Canned Light Skipjack Tuna (salted) (I used Wild Planet brand)
- 2 Large eggs
- 1 teaspoon Aleppo chili pepper

- 1/2 teaspoon taco seasonings
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (if you are using unsalted canned skipjack tuna)
|Take out the canned tuna on a bowl along with its liquid. Mash the tuna until all the liquid integrated with the tuna.|
|Crack 2 eggs and mix it throughly with the tuna meat. Add all dry seasonings.|
|Lastly, mix in 1/4 cup coconut flour into the tuna mixture. Mix everything until no more lumps. The mixture will be thick but shouldn't be too dry|
|Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pre heat oven to 400°F.|
|Using 1/4 measurement cup, scoop the tuna mixture and plop it on the lined baking sheet. I got about 7.5 tuna patties.|
|Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until the patties are no longer soggy looking.|
