Cilantro Tuna Patties

I love the convenience of canned tuna! I use it to make tuna melts, add it on salads or make them into tuna patties. I usually have beef, chicken or turkey patties often so this was a good change. I made a bunch of these patties to keep in my fridge to heat up for quick meals!

I used both almond flour and eggs as binders to keep the patties together. I added in fresh cilantro, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, cumin and some coconut aminos! Sometimes, I use coconut aminos in replacement of soy sauce. Coconut aminos is a “slightly-sweet” soy sauce made from coconut sap. It’s light, soy free and gluten free which is a good replacement for those who are avoiding soy or gluten. I’m not avoiding either, I just like coconut aminos for the flavor πŸ™‚
