Keto Crab Cakes Recipe

These Keto Crab Cakes are a great low-carb recipe that’s packed with some classic flavor. Rather than being loaded up with crushed up crackers or bread crumbs like a traditional Crab Cake, This Keto version uses some good ole trusty Almond Flour. I keep a big 3 pound bag of Almond Flour on hand in the cupboard at almost all times, because it really is such a versatile ingredient when you are cooking Keto Recipes.

Some people may prefer to use Worcestershire Sauce instead of the Coconut Aminos, but Coconut Aminos are more Keto-friendly than the Worcestershire. You could swap out the Yellow Mustard for some Dijon Mustard for a little different flavor if that is your preference, just read the label to make sure that your Mustard is not sweetened. I used to think that all Mustards were sugar-free but I picked some up at the store to read labels and saw that some actually have sugar in them, and Dijon was a common culprit.
