Low Carb Crab Cakes

Tonight for our first ever Tuesday night Facebook cooking LIVE, Ben and I did his famous Low Carb crab cakes.  These are so yummy!  Here is the ingredient list!

12oz crabmeat
2 tbsp finely diced red bell pepper27329563_10155196578620983_977898533_o                            2 tbsp finely diced green bell pepper
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp minced onion
4 tbsp almond flour
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp Tony Chachere’s creole seasoning

6-8 tbsp olive oil for the pan

 

 

 

 

Start by by making sure your crabmeat is extremely well drained.  If there is too much liquid, they will not bind well.  Fresh crabmeat is best over canned, because of the additives in the canned variety, but if that is all you have access to, it is fine as a last resort!

Preheat a pan with 3 tbsp of drizzled olive oil to a medium heat.  We set ours on about 6.

Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat well.

Add the peppers, cajun seasoning, minced onion, and parsley and combine well with the eggs.

Then add the crabmeat and mix well. Lastly, mix in the almond flour a little at a time until it is all combined well.

Carefully form silver dollar pancake sized cakes and place them gently in the heated pan.  Cook about 3 minutes on the first side until golden and then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Place on paper towels to drain for a few seconds before serving.

THAT IS IT!  DELISH!

I am also a former 350lb food addict who is passionate about healthy living. I am a firm believer in the science and research that proves that sugar fake toxic "Frankenfoods" and excess carbs are the root of most of the illness we see today. Metabolic syndrome is taking over as the leading cause of preventable death in this country. I believe we all need a balanced lifestyle that includes eating well and eating lots of plants and lean proteins as well as moving our bodies and keeping our minds and hearts strong. I also believe in having good quality gut health supplements to provide what our bodies need that we just do not get due to environment and dietary reasons. I truly believe we are raising a generation of kids addicted to sugar and setting them up for a lifetime of disease and advocate limiting sugar and fake processed food consumption in children.
