Healthier Crab Cakes

Delicious, low-carb, and gluten-free crab cakes!

These fluffy and jumbo lump crab cakes are the perfect summer dinner. This honestly might be one of my favorite recipes yet! I’ve always loved crab cakes – and I love this healthy twist.. I even added a little cauliflower! I also used Bob’s Red Mill [3] almond flour and Chosen Food’s [4] avocado oil mayo. You could use which ever mayo you like!
