Broccoli tuna fritters

400g of lightly steam broccoli and then put it in the food processor till it's fine but you still know it's broccoli 
150g of shedded mozzarella but you can use any hard cheese that you have like cheddar or Parmesan just use a grater to shred it finely 
3 eggs ( beaten)
2 (4oz) can of tuna (drain)
1/2 cup of almond flour ( I used honeyville brand) 
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of black pepper
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of onion powder

Preheat oven to 425F
Steam your broccoli or you can buy those ready steam broccoli for the microwave but don't boil it in water, we don't want to add moisture to this or else your patty will not hold and it will be too watery. Cool it down.
 put the broccoli and cheese in the food processor till it's well combine.
Transfer in a big bowl
Add the egg, tuna and the rest of the ingredients and mix really well. 
I took an ice cream scooper to get even patties
Divide into about 17 pieces and make a ball and gently shape it into patties. As you can see in the picture I used a silicone mat to bake it so it will not stick but a parchment paper will still probably work too or just make sure you grease your pan really well. 
Bake at 425f for 15 minutes in the lowest rack of the oven then flip it and cook for another 10-15 minutes.if it's still sticking it's not ready add about 5 more minutes. 
The bottom part look so beautiful then just flip it and cook the top side for another 10-15 minutes. 

Even patties because of the ice cream scooper

Lemon mug cake

This is a variation of my tiramisu mug cake, I just double up the recipe And used the base from that recipe and added lemon zest and lemon juice. This will make 3 mug cakes. You can always half the recipe or microwave it and just store the rest in the fridge. 

2 tbsp of powdered erythritol ( or 2 packets of any sweetener of choice)
1 whole egg
2 tbsp of melted butter ( or coconut oil)
6 tbsp of almond flour ( honeyville brand)
2 tbsp of almond milk ( or any liquid like cream, half and half or water)
4 tbsp of vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder.
1 and 1/2 tsp of lemon zest
2 1/2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
Pinch of salt

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Put the melted butter, egg, liquids, lemon juice and the zest in another bowl and using a wire whisk mix it till it's well combined. I really suggest to use a wire whisk.
Now slowly pour the dry ingredients in your liquids and continue mixing. 
Divide and Pour into your mugs ( 3 mugs)
Set aside for about 1 to 2 minutes so that the baking powder can activate. 
Microwave for 45 seconds ( cooking time will vary depending on your microwave so I suggest check it at 40 seconds)
I top mine with freshly whipped cream and some more lemon zest.
